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?

Re: Having problems and need help

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

Re: Having problems and need help

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.
