I bought this to go on a new 60 gallon compressor. No matter which way you turn the valve it leaks around 25 psi. If you look at the other reviews you will see other people have had the same issue. I will have to return mine and find another brand. Hopefully, my review will save you some time and you can find something better.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by RednexToyz Average Quality, Missing Features
I own a couple of these. A mounting bracket would have been nice. My installation did not require a mounting bracket so it wasn't a deal breaker for MY use. If I were using it as a permanent mount, a bracked would have been helpful. Most bowl filters designed to catch water need to be mounted vertically. This one is no exception. I generally install 1 near my compressor tank and 1 near my air tool/outlet. You might be suprised by the amount of water it will catch! Overall, filter quality, construction, form & function is average to what is available on the market. There are no breakthru features or functions on this to be found! Does have a petcock for draining the water from the bowl. Bowl is visable to see what's being trapped. I give it 2 stars for the lack of a bracket, 3 stars if it came with one since that is fairly common with this style of filter.

Another cheap get what you pay for item...leaks from the pressure but, if you turn the blow off valve just right it will stop for a short time..

Have been using as the initial stage of a multi-stage filtration system for over 2 years without issue. Easy to turn drain to dump water. Quarter turn is all it takes to empty the bowl of water VERY EASY. Does its job without impeding air flow. Works as well as my other filters that cost 3 times more. My only wish would be for it to filter below 5 microns.

This poorly built little bugger can't hold more than 25psi over night. After about 6 months the valve gave out all together. Quite a waste of money.

Only running 100 psi, first the valve on end blew out on 2nd day. Then I epoxied in a brass valve, then sides started cracking. Lousy plastic bowl has far too little strength.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by tmiller6 I suggest you look elswhere for a filter/water trap
I have yet to install the second one that I have held today because like the first one, the black plastic drain valve on the bottom of this device does not give any hint of sealing. This second one was opened by me in the store and I blew through the valve to test it. Now that I am in the quiet of home, I see that it too leaks. This is a Husky branded Campbell Hausfield product made in Taiwan (according to the instructions) and I sure wish there was something better available at the store than this one.

Works like a charm. First off it is an auto drain, so you will not be able to test by blowing through it like previous reviewer said. It takes some pressure for the drain to seal itself. When you let the pressure off, it opens automatically to drain water. I ran 25 feet of black pipe from my 60 gallon compressor then installed the filter. Works perfect even for airbrushing, which even a drop of water can be a big deal.
