ok well i thought my compressor was bad its a viair 400 it would only build my tank to 100 or 110 so i decided to buy a az comp and use the viair lead hose so i could keep the built in check valve. well when i unhooked my lead hose from the viair head all the air in my tank rushed out. shouldnt the check valve have stopped this?! and is it possible for a check valve to only hold so much psi then go bad? as in my check valve could only handle up to 110 before it would leak back out?

well it wil hold at 120 if i use a big shop compressor. but when i turn the compressor on it will slowly go down to 110. im guessing that is when the comp is able to keep up maybe?
