Great idea, but poor fitment

,

"I needed a filter when I was using my compressor for a paint sprayer. I put a regular filter on it but then I realized I should get a lubricator as well so I didn't have to keep oiling my tools by hand. I tried this one out and it's ok, but poor fitment around the bowls leads to air leaks under pressure. Typically by a few hours into using it, the outside hulls are completely saturated in oil and I can watch pressure drop in the compressor over time. If they get the leaks fixed, this would be a great find."

Poor construction

"I bought this looking for an economical regulator and filter. I checked this item out at the store and was reluctant to buy because of its relative construction. After getting home I had more time to think and really decided against using it. I returned it to the store unused to ensure a full refund."

Air filter, lubricator and regulator

"This product is very easy to assemble to any aircompressor and works well. I have no complaints. It does everything that I want it to do. Does leak a little at the bowls but take them off and lube up the o-ring and it seems to stop"

Leaks

"Although this is the less cost alternative and seemed like a good by, I could not stop the leak between the two cylinders. It is very minor and does not seem to affect the performance."
