i drain the tank after EVERY use - but i suspect that the person who owned the tank before me - did not do the same.

thank you,

You are right, it just wasn't drained enough. Mine is a very big one, I don't even know the size, or age, but I get very little rusty water, But it was used in a body shop for years, and I'm sure they took good care of it.
