Compressor Installation - Location Issues


This page about the installation - location of an air compressor is not discussing the plumbing of the air lines. There is a separate page and forum answering questions about plumbing an air compressor.

For information about the where of compressor installation, for visitor comments about location of an air compressor, and a forum on which you can gather information about compressor installation - location, or post a question of your own, you have come to exactly the right spot.

Before adding your question please have a look at the existing comments as I expect your question will have been asked and answered already. If you see a post about compressor installation or location to which you can contribute some information, we would all benefit from your experience.
