Question about Craftsman 3 gal. Air Compressor, 1.5 hp, Horizontal k
I have a 5 gallon craftsman air compressor I use to blow out the wateripes at our lake house. I have used it for approx. 5 seasons and I noticed there was oil in the air line when I finished this time. The oil level indicator was fine and the unit ran fine. What would cause this? THANKS!
Worn compressor rings, not a real issue, I assume it is more of a build up over time, say a gram of oil is blown into the lines every year, well one gram would not be noticed nor two but since it soes not evaporate it builds up to the point that you can see it, some oil is blown by brand new compressors and over time gets to be more and more, but as long as you are still getting full pressure you do not have to service the compressor, but since this is being used on water pipes I would install a trap inline to catch the oil
