First question, what are you using the air for? Saw a paint gun in the picture. And, how much do you do? While your looking in Princess Auto, look at the tools amnd see what the consumption rate of air is and the PSI, figure out from there. The best deal at Princess is coming up in late Oct/early Nov when they have their GIANT sale, look for the 7 1/2 HP, two stage, 80 gal. Good for a lifetime!! Stay away from those throw-a-way Chinese one's that they have, no parts, leak air and blow oil seals and leak all over the tank. On your existing one, you could go for the 80 gal tank. You should be able to pump it up to 125 psi, wait for 'wet' air to condense, release thru water trap and then spray. Alberta is desert, so air shouldn't be to humid. Drain air tank after using each day and pump up a new tank every morning.
