Default In-line water trap for compressor hose

Hey I have a big problem with water getting in my air-line and really ruining some paint jobs on me. I have a regulator with a water trap in it, but that doesn't seem to do anything, it seems that all the mositures comes from when the air actually gets into the hose. I have seen the in-line water traps online that are supposed to solve this problem, and I'm wondering whether they work or not, and if they do.. what is a really good one I can buy and where at? And I will also probably need installation tips for it if it doesn't come with any. Thank you very much in advanced for any help.

Sorry, but I don't have any idea about the inline trap. But do you have your moisture trap verticle? I've heard that if you don't, it won't trap the moisture as well. I know very little about compressors, but it is hard to believe that the water is collecting in your hose. Maybe you have a bad moisture trap.

Yes the mositure trap is verticle. I've pulled it off and looked at it, can't find anything wrong with it. I've had it for about 6 months now and painted 4 r/c bodies as well as a few other projects, and so far I haven't got a drop of water in my water trap. All I ever get is a tiny bit of condensation on the inside of it. I would add a link to an in-line water trap that I've found online but the site is down right now.

to an inline moisture trap, although I've never used one myself. At the bottom of the page, they have a Toll Free Product Info number that you can call yo find out about it, so I'd give that a try. Good Luck!

Thank you very much TurnNBurn, I think I will be ordering that one as it looks better yet is cheaper than the other one I found.
Thank you very much once again.

I use an inline watertrap, they are great but you do have to drain them when they start to fill up.

Badger has a clear plastic one so you can see how much moisture has accumulated. I beleive it came with instructions, here is the part #50-2014 and the link, check page 2 of accessories.

moisture trap

Good Luck

Immuno, never saw that one... looks good, but it says that it's for use with Badger hoses only. DB, if you have a Badger/T&C brush that may work for you too.
