Okay. I'm slowly but surely getting my Dime on bags, now here is my question. I know this might seem kinda dumb but better safe then sorry I guess you could say. I bought a 9 gallon tank with 3 ports. It has 1) 1/4" port and 2) 3/8" ports. I also bought a Viair 450 100% Duty compressor. Now could I just use the 1/4" port for my compressor line and the 3/8" ports for my air lines to the valves? I was gonna use 3/8" ports n valves with a 1/2" line. Also where would be a good spot to put the pressure switch? Thanks for the help in advance.

I would get a T, plug the compressor and pressure switch into it, and plug it into the port. Then the other 2 would be free for the valves. However, I wouldn't recommend 9 gallons with only one Viair 450.

6 gallons is the most you can do with only 1 450 compressor i believe. get you an 8 port 5 gal tank from suicidedoors.com and that way you don't have to split your lines. it would be a lot cleaner to plumb and run your lines that way and your setup will be much faster.

Well, I slept on it and I'm going to cancle my order on that monster 9 gallon. I'd rather save $200+ on a compressor then just letting it burn up on an over sized tank. My friend also had a question. If you have a single port bag with 2 valves for pump and dump. Would you run the 2 valves to a T fitting then to a single line to the bag?

Yep, just put a "T" between the two valves. What I'm thinking of doing is running a 5 gal tank with a Viair450 in-line with a nitrogen tank. I'll run off the tank, and if I don't get to refill it in time, the pump would just kick on. I guess, I just don't want to get stranded somewhere because of the pump or somethig else screwing up. :thumbup:
