      Air Compressor Drain

      Be Your Own Mechanic

      An air compressor is an important tool for any DIY mechanic. To perform repairs and regular automotive maintenance in a more efficient and safe manner, you will need various pneumatic tools, or air tools, to get the job done. These tools are powered by an air compressor which uses compressed air to power the pneumatic motor. Due to a light power to weight ratio, air tools are much easier to use than larger, heavier tools. Plus, you won't need to worry about the perils associated with regular power tools such as sparks, electrocution, or short-circuiting. To continue using your pneumatic tools, you will need to regularly drain your air compressor of any water. The easiest way to do this is with an automatic compressor drain. If you're tired of trying to drain your compressor by hand, head down to AutoZone for the best air compressor drains for cars and trucks.

      How an Auto Drain Can Help

      While all air compressors typically come with a manual air compressor drain already installed, an auto drain makes the process of draining your tank much easier and helps extend the lifespan of your tank and air tools by regularly draining water and keeping it nice and dry. You can find an easily find an auto drain for your air compressor by simply searching “air compressor drains near me” on our website at AutoZone.com or by using our mobile app. From there, you can quickly compare prices and read customer reviews to help you leave with the best part possible. When using your air compressor, water will begin to form at the bottom and makes its way into the tank. This water can then flood your tools and cause rusting inside your tank. For this reason, an air compressor should be drained with every use. Auto drains work by either draining when water is detected or by draining on a set schedule.

      A Worthwhile Investment
