Spray gun water trap & air filter advice needed
Posted by lacquer-lover on Monday, March 05, 2018 2:04 PM

Hey everyone I am looking for a air filter water trap and possibly pressure regularregulator all-in-one unit for my iwata eclipse RG3. Amazon appears to be replete with cheap Chinese junk and trying to find a quality unit is a daunting task indeed so if anyone has experience in this area I would love to hear your opinions. thank you

 I would like to suggest that you contact the manufacturer of your compressor and see what they have available that will fit your needs.  I have a cheap water trap/regulator that I got off ebay years ago and it is still running great.  Every year I perform some maintenance just to keep the unit in tip-top running condition.

I have a regulator/water trap unit marketed by Paasche. I bought it at my LHS about 10-12 years ago for about $45.00 if I recall. It has performed flawlessly ever since.

Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

Check at Hobby Lobby if you have one near you. Also your local 1/1 automotive paint supply (not a body and paint shop) they should have quality items there.

home depot has a selection of traps and gauges, plus connectors and fittings to rig up whatever you need. I use quick connect n p t adapters and in line filters from various airbrush websites.
