2 stage IR compressor leaking air

My compressor will build up to 130 PSI or the top setting and then all the air that has built up drains from the tank at the air filter inlet. What is the cause of that and how can I remedy it?

Hmmm, that's an interesting one, Bob.

The first thing I would do if this were my IR air compressor is dump all the air with the compressor off (good time to check the PRV function by using it to dump the compressed air, and then I would pull and check the tank check valve.

My guess is it is not closing tightly and allowing tank air to escape.

Once that's done, please advise results as a comment here. In other words, did this work?

Cheers,

Bill
