Drain Valve Extension

Drain Valve Extension I know that you’re supposed to drain the water from the air tank on a compressor regularly. But the drain valve on my air compressor is located on the bottom of the tank, where it’s difficult to reach. So I added an extension to the drain valve. I first removed the existing drain valve from the tank. Then I added some galvanized pipe fittings to bring the valve out to where I could reach it more conveniently, see drawing.

Have a nice weekend,
