Pointless to pop the relief valve. It leaves all the water in the tank. The most important thing is to open the drain at the bottom until no more water comes out and it is supposed to be done everyday.

I have 2 200 gal 3 phase comps .. I find it reasonable to bleed out the Tanks Every Day.
But just because its a simple compressor .. you need to bleed out the pressure. Via Valve or air nozzle .. same thing.
I have seen peeps hook up a quick connect 1/4" male fitting to bleed out air .. that will make your ear drums think they were on deck of an aircraft carrier.

I dont see why a few drops of Air oil or PB blaster wont keep them fittings from freezing. ..
Works fine for me.
Empty your tanks every time your done with them !.
home is where we drop anchor
The pressure tank is currently under the house, which is where it has been since I bought it, all of the lines are heat taped and keep the lines from freezing up, but I have had continued problems with the hi/lo switch, this summer, I will be re-plumbing and putting a new pressure tank inside the house like it should have been to begin with.. We have no basement, this is a mobile home that is sitting on a foundation.
But I will get it all fixed up the correct way this coming summer, so no mo problems!
Have never had a problem with my air system, I drain the water, and then let it pressurize again, I have never had problems with any hoses or seals going bad since I have had it, and do my maintenance based on what my Ingersol rep laid out. I am going to put an auto drain system on it and a thermal switch on the motor, like we had on our setups in the Military, so I won't have any problems at all with it.
