No pressure buildup

by Leif
(Fairfax VA)

I have a Brute 15 Gallon 125psi air compressor that no longer builds up pressure.

Upon inspection, i found that the check valve (on the tank) is allowing air to escape when the pump is running.

It almost seems like the compressed air is not going into the tank but going directly into the air instead... Is this possible? Is this symptomatic of a faulty check valve?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Yes, check your tank check valve.
