    Have one on a Husky 30 gallon. O ring failed in 3 months use. Campbell Hausfeld (that;s who makes these for Husky) customer service was no good. Replacing with standard valve and pipe. 20 minutes work. No more worries.

    I would have to say don't buy this unit. I bought one and tried to use it but could only intermittently get it to close. I exchanged it and had the same problem. I think the reviewer suggesting a max of 125psi may be on to something, I am not sure how much pressure I exposed it to

    I have a Porter Cable pancake compressor and the drain valve went bad on me after about 6 months. After doing some research online, it was more expensive to pay shipping than buy the part in store. Also it would take 6-8 weeks for the warranty repair so 3 bucks was worth not waiting. I bought this piece and installed it in about 5 minutes. I used it for a couple hours with a brad gun at 120 PSI (tank pressure 150), and it's holding true. Guess I'll know more after a few more uses, but for 3 bucks and instant use, it's worth every penny. Also, unlike the Porter Cable one, this one is easier to turn with your fingers and seems to have a positive stop when it is out and in versus unscrewing too much.

    I bought this to replace the drain on my PC pancake compressor. Twice I installed it and it leaked. The threads sealed tight, but the drain wouldn't close all the way and air leaked out. Needless to say, it will be getting returned.

    Poor quality design. I installed mine and it leaked. Not worth it. My tank is 150psi.

    My local Home Depot does not sell the standard brass petcock. I tried this. There are no pressure limits stated on the packaging. The seal blew out at 160 psi. The pressure switch settings on most shop compressors I have encountered, turn on at 130psi and off at 170psi. The drain cock will likely work fine with smaller compressors that max out at 125psi.

    Quite an improvement over the stock drain cock. The stock part had stripped(apparently only punched into place) and would no longer open. This inexpensive and easy to use replacement works just right for my light use.

    Bought this part to replace my leaky drain valve on a husky compressor. The larger threads sealed just fine into the compressor, but the valve itself would not shut all the way. I could not achieve more than 40 or 50 psi.
