Product Details

The key to a long lasting air compressor is regular maintenance. Each time your compressor runs, the moisture in the air condenses in the tank. This moisture must be drained daily from the tank to prevent water buildup. To make this daily maintenance task easy to perform, install the Husky Extended Tank Drain Valve Assembly.
  • Works on air compressors with 1/4 in. NPT drain valve
  • Replaces current drain valve for ease in draining moisture from the compressor tank
  • Includes a 1/4 in. elbow with pre-applied thread sealant, 10 in. flexible braided steel hose and 1/4 in. quarter turn drain valve
  • Easily drain your tank after every use
  • Fits 1/4 in. NPT ports

Q:Will this fit on the new Husky Electric Silent 20 gallon Air Compressor ??
by|Jan 3, 2022
3 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  I would imagine it would. I used mine on a 30 gallon husky compressor.

by|Jan 3, 2022

    A:  The extended tank drain assembly is equipped with a 1/4" NPT elbow. If the drain on your current compressor is 1/4" NPT, then yes, this should be a suitable replacement. Please note: The elbow, once installed into the bottom of your tank, will extend downward roughly 1". So be sure you have at least this amount of clearance under your tank, so that the elbow does not become damaged.

    by|Jan 3, 2022

      A:  Yes, it will fit. I bought it for my compressor and it fits perfectly!

        Q:Is the black knob plastic or metal?

        A:  It is metal with what appears to be a powder coat finish & it is very solid and durable. I use this on two air compressor and have never had any problem with the valve or handle but you definitely want to be careful to not damage the flexible hose! 

        by|Dec 25, 2021

          A:  The black handle on this valve is cast aluminum.

          by|Dec 21, 2021

            A:  The black knob is metal. I purchased this item about 2-3 years ago, it is much easier to drain my tank now, which means I do it more often. I like it.

            by|Dec 26, 2021

              A:  Plastic

                    Q:Can i take the elbow off directly into tank?

                    Answer This Question

                    A:  We do not recommend removing the elbow. The extended drain is designed with the elbow to keep it parallel to the floor and prevent the tube from kinking.

                      Q:Is it necessary to totally decompress the tank first when draining? Or can i just open the valve for a few seconds and then close it again?

                      Answer This Question

                      A:  I just open the valve when I am done using the compressor. The idea is to drain the water out of the tank and the pressure left in tank should help to do that.

                      by|Sep 22, 2019

                      A:  You can open with pressure on the tank but you are going to get a 150 psi shower. I created an extension hose that threads on to the downstream side of the valve that I run into a bucket to catch the water. I bleed the air in the tank down to 15 psi so there is just enough pressure to push the water out to the bucket but not so much pressure that it sprays everywhere.

                        A:  Yes it only takes a few seconds to drain water.

                        by|Sep 22, 2019

                          A:  I open the valve long enough for any water to drain and close.

                          by|Sep 22, 2019

                          A:  You can open and close it. In fact works better if it has pressure in it, it blows the water out instead of dribbling out.

                          by|Feb 12, 2020

                          A:  You can just open the valve until all the water comes out then shut it. No need to drain the whole tank.

                            A:  You only have to open the valve just enough to drain water then close it.

                            by|Jun 1, 2021

                              A:  Not necessary to decompress the tank. Just open the valve slowly because the water coming out will be under pressure. I like to drain mine while the tank is unpressurized, because the water will just flow out into my container. Hope this helps.

                              by|Sep 22, 2019

                                A:  Yes, please disconnect the power, and release all pressure from the compressor system, before working with the tank drain.

                                  Makes draining the tank a breeze!
                                  This works very well. With the Husky being so top-heavy, it is difficult to tilt the tank to reach the drain valve without this extension. Well worth the money.

                                  The only reason I didn't give this product 5 stars is that it does nor come with any sort of mounting bracket. The extension is well made and fits perfectly on the Husky compressor including thread sealant to prevent leakage. After reading multiple reviews for the compressors, this extension is a must have. Too bad it is not a standard part on the compressor rather than the knurled drain valve that comes standard. As I said, there is no mounting bracket included with the extended drain valve so I made one from aluminum bar stock and attached it to the leg at the bottom of the compressor and secured it to the bracket with a brass elbow. (see picture).

                                  This is a great addition to my compressor. No more reaching under the tank for the drain valve and since the is a decent length of hose on the Husky part, it acts like a low point drain and is more efficient
