That is, indeed, a real downer.

If you use the search boxes on this site, however, and search for "make compressor valves" you should find the pages about how some folks have overcome this problem.

Best of luck.

Thank you very much for your diagnosis for my compressor.I now find my self in a dilemma in terms of repairing the compressor (purchased in Canada). I contacted Clarke via e-mail to see if the parts are available in Canada. Here is the resonse verbatim....

Regretfully, due to conditions laid down by our insurance Company, we cannot supply direct, indirect or knowingly to USA or Canada. We also do not, at the present time, have a distributor.

Sorry mate. That sounds like your intake valve is scuppered.

I suspect it's time to tear down the pump and replace the valves, any gaskets, and check the cylinder walls and piston seals as well.
