Having problems and need help

i can't seem to figure out what is going on with my tank and compressors. I am running a pair of viair 444's and a 5 gal tank... i know i have a couple of leaks in the system, but nothing horrible... for some reason now i can't get the pressure in the tank over about 90psi, and this is after letting the compressors run for over 20 minutes... any suggestions?

thanks in advance for the help

Re: Having problems and need help

are they both getting 12 volts? are the comps old? and after you turn the comps off do you quickly lose the 90 psi?

Check the air filter and see if its leaking back out of there. Id think checkvalve in the leader hose is bad.

check the tank for water. I thought I had bad compressors and it turns out the tank had better than a quart of water in it, it was funking up the check valves.
