Thanks for the responses, guys. I'm definitely going to get some good piping and filters this week. I most have just been lucky with the earlier paint jobs, I guess. There is a little vent on top of the compressor pump that was producing a fine spray of mist. When I called the company 800 number, the guy on the other end told me the mist was oil and it was caused from the check-valve being stuck open, which, in turn was blowing air pressure back into the pump. I just assumed that the oil was getting into the tank from the pump, but water does sound like the logical explanation. Thanks again.
