Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HomeGarage Great Valve, just use your own thread sealant!
This valve works great to drain the compressor! My old drain cock stopped sealing well (probably debris/rust) and slowly leaked. Got this to replace it, turns smooth. It comes with thread sealant pre-applied, but brush this off and use Teflon tape! I installed it as purchased with the pre-applied sealant, ran the 30 gallon compressor up to 150 psi, and it slowly leaked about 10 psi per day. Down to 100 psi by the 5th day, I emptied the tank, removed the drain valve, wire brushed off the sealant, and reinstalled with several wraps of Teflon tape. Ran the compressor back up to 150 psi, and it's holding steady nearly a week later. Great valve, just don't count on the thread sealant it comes with!

I have a six (6) gallon Husky air compressor that came with the small air drain finger knob which is very difficult to open; this quarter turn is a god send and makes dumping the air easy breezes it is a must have! The drain plug was very easy to install and the threads came treated with air sealant. its a thousand times better than the original drain plug

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MooseMetalworking AWESOME!
The original drain valve for my 2 gallon twin stack air compressor I use in my metal fabrication shop leaked right out of the box, so I replaced it with this. It has a nice black nylon handle and a chrome plated brass body. The seals are replaceable, just remove the hex plug on the bottom. This is also low profile and fits almost all compressors. Pre applied pipe thread sealant makes installation a breeze, just use an adjustable or open end wrench!
