Been putting up with a slow leak in the air compressor and simply
haven't had time to address it. With the last project that is not in
planning stages out the door, this morning was a good time to stop
Unit is about five years old and arguably too new to have pinhole leaks
in the tank, but still had to basically bathe in soapy water (after
replacing the drain cock which was suspect, but didn't stop the problem)
until I found two more brass connection leaks.
The hardest to pinpoint was at the input _plug_
at the far right ...
tiny, tiny bubbles, almost imperceptible were the giveaway.
Some pipe dope and been holding steady for three hours, for the first
time in a year ... wish me luck.
