The iwata 925, although a good compressor, does not have a tank to store air and allow the air to cool somewhat before going into the water trap. For best results, the water trap needs to be far enough away from the compressor to allow the compressed air to cool allowing water to condense out. Go to a compressor repair shop in your area and have them make an air tank out of used parts and have them move the water seperator from the compressor to the remote tank. It should not cost more than thirty dollars or so. If space is a problem then just purchase an extra hose and attach an inline seperator like the one shown here: http://www.dickblick.com/zz269/23/ , Coil the hose and hang on wall. The coils will help to catch water. Be sure to empty the extra hose frequently. Good Luck

If your water separator is not doing the job then you have too much moisture in the compressor tank. Turn on the air relief valve to release the air. Be sure it is at a low point so that the moisture in the tank will also escape. Once the tank is completely empty screw the relief valve shut, start the compressor and then check the output for moisture. You should be good to go.
