Compressor, Water Separators, Rubber Line

Did a few searches and found some info on setting up hard lines in a shop/garage from the compressor to the tool end. My problem is that I'm active duty military, and will only be here for 1-3 more years, so I'm not inclined to plumb the garage with hard lines.

My setup right now is a 33 gallon 6 hp Sears compressor and the flexible rubber hose. I use it to run air tools, blast cabinet, and may try to paint with it, too. Right now, the water in the line does slow down the blasting process a bit.

Any info/ideas on where/how to minimize moisture in the rubber line?

Ray,You are correct.Get the water trap as far away from the air compressor as possible. :D:D:D

Also you might use half-inch air hose and ajust the fittings at the tool. :hurray: :beers:
