Many people ask me about an inline water trap to keep water out of the spray gun-

1) Make sure your compressor tank is drained regularly- whether you think there’s water in there or not. Its easy for water to condense inside.

There are cheap “toilet paper” filters, but these are poor insurance for two reasons- a) you have no idea of the internal condition of such a filter 2) if they fail in the middle of a job- and they will do so suddenly and with no prior indication when this will be- they will ruin your project.
