inline water trap

I was wondering how long do those little inline mini water traps last. Ones that you can screw on the end of the hose just before your air tool.

I have a clear plastic one with a dump valve that I have been using about 10 years. Never wears out.

I quit the Catholic Church 40 years ago so don't have a clue who is in charge. Don't hold me to that. How about, "Is the Pope Catholic? Yep."

Yup, the Pope is Catholic! I use the HF inlines on all my paint guns and my nail guns. They work and I get a few when they are on sale @ $2.99 whenever I get to San Antonio.

The inline water filter (ball shaped type that is either orange or black) have paper filters in them. You will have to determine how much you use the compressor and the amount of water you have in your line. It should not be used solely for stopping water but should be a final step in helping to stop it before the water reaches the tools. No more than what they cost, keep a few on hand. For an overall paint job, I would use a new one just to be sure you get the proper airflow through the line. When you drain your tank, look at the color and consistency of the water that comes out. This will eventually plug a filter or seriously hamper the airflow thorough it.
