Question about the rusty water- is there a danger of corrosion on the inside of the tank leading to a weak spot and maybe a leak like you get with central heating radiators?

I believe the valve at the bottom of the tank is there to help you avoid that exact danger Pat!

Like Jason says Pat, use the drain plug/valve once or twice a year, more often if you use the compressor a lot.
It would be a rare thing for the tank to rust through but I have heard about it happening occasionally,
What I find is that the capacity of the tank reduces as the water accumulates and your get the compressor shutting down for increasingly shorter periods, and as the compressor has to work more it is inclined to get quite warm.
It's my hobby and I will enjoy it my way!

Hi all

I just recently bought an airbrush kit and apart of reading tips on this forum I have also been watching videos on you tube about thinners cleaning, different paints.... of all the videos I found I would like to share these ones to all of you. Maybe are too basic for some but I found it quite useful for a beginner like me :)
