Get one of these.

Considering how much $$$ you spend on piping this and trap's that. You'll be $$$ ahead just getting a drier to begin with.

Big problem in the past was the fact that these were SOOOOO expensive for one with this kind of capacity. But for less than 300,this is a good deal.

PVC is crap, plain and simple. It retains heat, just go to galvanized steel pipe.

Thats what I figured, I will get the supplies Tuesday
looks like $50.00 ought to do it
Tomorrow I am going to go shooting with a bud first time in 6 months
and I need to get a money order for an exhaust Manifold for the Z
will 4' laterals with 2' drops work ?

IE leave the compressor run 4' lateral to tee drop 2' and tee to dryer/filter and 25' hose
drop 2' to bleed valve.
continue another 4' lateral from first tee, and drop 2' to drain valve.

and another 3/4" x 2' and a 3/4"x3/8" reducer and I will be complete
it looks like $80.00 will be the damages and I already had 3 valves for draining

The key is to cool the air, I use a 5 gallon bucket, an extra hose and a moisture trap. I just take the hose comming out of the tank ( i do not have the walls piped yet, and I have painted several cars w/o problems) I coil it in the bucket, dump in ice, hang moisture trap on the side of the bucket and go. It is primitive but it works well.
