I would suggest to you, not because you don't get it, and people without any engineering or trade related backgrounds, to fill the pot with as much water as you can before applying test air pressures. That way if it does have a Myth Busters moment the air in the pot will be minimal and have less destructive energy.

Personally because my compressor may be used for other things at the same time and have the pressure set to 90 or 100 psi, I have a regulator on a short hose to the pot. That way there can't be any dangerous mistakes made if the air compressor regulator setting is forgotten.

You got a good deal on it.

And the box it came in looked as bad as the picture. LOL. $12 refund supposed to be on its way for the busted regulator and gauge Iím sure due to the poor packing and sorry box.

A big Amen on testing with water! And good advice on a dedicated regulator, Iíll also add an air drier too. I was really concerned after reading bad reviews of the company that sells the pot through Walmart. So far so good.

Its a water filter housing. I bought it for about $13 on ebay but they are much more now. Its rated for something like 80 psi but I would never leave it pressurized.

Thanks Jerry, Iím tracing down a slow leak. I may have to change the seal, about $20. Doesnít mean the $102 on wouldnít have the same issue. Or I can just leave the air hose attached and the regulator can keep the pressure constant.

Soapy water (dish soap, a little higher concentration than you would use to do your dishes) is good for finding slow leaks. Just put in a spray bottle and cover all the possible leak points.

Good advice, I'll have to give that a try.
