Customer Questions & Answers

Is this powerful enough to blow out a sprinkler system (by zone)?

The longest sprinkler zone I have is about 250' with ten spray heads. I can isolate each zone to blow out.
Asked by: grandpa9
Thank you for the interest in the California Air Tools 1610A Ultra Quiet Air Compressor. We suggest using the California Air Tools 5510SE. The 5510SE has a 5.5 Gal. air tank giving you more air at start up. We also suggest isolating into small zones if necessary. Thank you

this compressor is 1.6 gal versus another compressor 5 gal what is the importanc of the tank capacity

Asked by: Anonymous
Thank you for the interest in the California Air Tools Ultra Quiet & Oil-Free Air Compressors. The air tank is a storage area for air. When you fisrt start to use the air compressor the air will be used from the air tank. The larger the tank the longer the time you have before the air compressor motor starts working. Thank you

What else do I need if I want to use for underpinner, inflation and nail gun?

1.6 Gal. 1 HP Ultra Quiet and Oil-Free Aluminum Tank Air Compressor is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 80.

I purchased the 1610A compressor in July 2012 and have used it for the last 3 1/2 years to inflate tires, and do occasional brad nailing of woodwork and really infrequent air blowing to clean up under the workbench etc. The compressor is quiet and has been reliable for me. It's a bit underpowered to use for blowing away debris and stuff of course, but is perfect for the other purposes I mentioned. The main purpose of writing this review was to state that it has been reliable for me for the last 3 1/2 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine! I replaced a "pancake" type compressor that was mounted in the engine room of a sport fishing boat I captain with the California Air 1610A. The compressor supplies the air needed to open and close the air door to enter the boat along with the air horns and small air tools. The old compressor was noisy to a degree that it could be heard inside the boat when it would run. The California Air is so quiet I can be in the engine room and not even realize it is running at times. Great compressor and very light weight too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice compressor but pay attention to what comes in the box My compressor arrived in good shape with excellent packaging. It started up easily and ran smoothly and quietly. The unit does not shake when in service and it is quiet enough to speak in a normal voice while standing next to it and still be heard. It is also lightweight and easy for me (female) to carry around. Please note: the only item in the box other than the compressor is an air filter. If needed you are required to purchase air hose, couplings, accessory tools, and such separately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product - Recommended This is a great little compressor for a unit in this size/weight category. The compressor motor/unit is based on those created for reliable use in the dental industry which can cost a lot more money than what you will pay here. It is indeed very quiet for an air compressor and has a fast recovery rate for a unit of this size. It is great for general use, running air nailers, small air tools, pumping up tires, etc... It is also light enough to be moved easily. Great product and certainly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY QUIET COMPRESSOR, GREAT AIR DELIVERY Bought this compressor to do Airbrush work. It is very quiet, and the air delivery is greater than a noisy higher horsepower model that I also own. The only thing I can say negative about it is the supplied regulator, it is cheap. But on the plus side I had plans to replace it anyway with a 60PSI full scale regulator and good filter/water separator. I am very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great and it certainly is quiet. I purchased this model because I placed a premium on having a quiet machine. I also like the compact design. It works great and it certainly is quiet so I am very pleased so far. I rated the value at four-star because the unit is relatively expensive compared with others of similar capability. If it holds up with time it will be well worth the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is what I expected. It works well and is very light and quiet. It fits well in my truck and is light for me to carry it to where I need it.
Date published: 2012-02-04
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very quiet compressor Incredibly quiet. It's actually comfortable to have a conversation when the compressor is running. It's heavy, but still easily portable. The small tank size is less of a problem than I thought it might be simply because it's less irritating when it runs. Excellent tool for small nailing jobs, as an alternative to canned air for cleaning, or any job which only requires a small compressor. The reason for the 4 star rating instead of 5 star is that the regulator is a little finicky (it works, but takes more tinkering than it should) and that the copper supply line from the tank to the pressure switch is poorly done. Other than those two small issues, build quality is excellent. I think I've sold several of them to my friends.
