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.

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.

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.

This needs to be mounted vertical in order to work properly. The only problem is, they do not include a mounting bracket or sell one as an accessory or have any threaded holes on the exterior to be used with a bracket. The only way I have found to mount this item is to custom make a bracket. Other manufacturers include a bracket. This manufacturer does not. Very frustrating!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tom6 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.

Bought one tried to attach to my 3/8" Male NPT Lines they are to small. I don't like making return trips . then could not find a reducer to match my 3/8 Male NPT line for it. Also said synthetic oils may damage it. My compressor uses Synthethic oil.. I returned it! It may be ok for some folks just not me.
