Gas/Electric Air Compressor Storage

  1. To stop the air compressor, move the engine or motor/pressure switch to the "off" position.
  2. Drain air from the air tanks by releasing air with an attached air tool or by pulling on the safety relief valve.
  3. Once the air tank pressure gauge registers under 10 lbs, open the drain valve under each air tank to drain any moisture.
  4. Allow the air compressor to cool down.
  5. Wipe the air compressor clean and store in a safe, non-freezing area.
