This post reminded me I needed to blow my tank out. I had replaced the original drain valve as well with a street ell, and ball valve with a hose barb for rubber hose. I opened it up and water came out, but the flow continued with water vapor, and then the flow stopped as the expansion of air resulted in ice forming in the drain line. I've noticed before that the water vapor will never really stop being seen. I'm assuming it is in the compressed air, and condenses out with the expansion.
Never try to tell me it can't be done

This is the valve I have fitted to both of my compressors back in 2017 and they work really well and cheap as chips. Only down side very noisy when discharging, but can be set on two timers: 1st how often to open 2nd how long to stay open. At £14-ish great investment.
