air compressor water

hi,i have a 60 gal vertical compressor.heres what i did to solve the water problem. at the fitting where the air hose would connect,i took 1/2 in galvanized pipe (hardware store,hd or lowes) and made a long U shape 1 piece of pipe 2ft long,,vertical,90 degree fitting, water hose bibb,6in long horizonontal(bottom of U shape,) vertical piece of pipe 20 in long air hose fitting on end. in use i start compressor,let it fill up,open water bibb till water drains out close bibb,and spray. every 10 minutes or so,i drain water again. i also use a toilet paper water filter in air line just before regulator.(close to gun)
