    Yep @Tsunami‌ you're not the only one who feels that way. Thanks for venting. Made for a good read. Remind me to buy you a beer next time I see you.

    Our shop installed copper 35 years ago and the air is IMMACULATE, and no leaks. We installed Transair ten years ago in another building and it is performing just as perfectly. Only problem is it requires a bit more support, the plastic fittings like to flex so strap it good.

    recently did the rapid air easy to add more outlets if you want later on and best of all if you relocate easy to pull down and take with you.

    You might have choked off large compressor with small hose. let us know it it keeps up.

    Hose is rated at 150 psi max I regulated it down to 120 psi at the tank so hopefully it works out well so fare seems like a good set up and easy to add to if needed

    I ran my blast cabinet with it and seems to be running good

    It's not the pressure you're worried about. It's the cfm. That small line is choking your supply.

    So how do u know if it actually is or isn't

    If you use any pneumatic tools, which use a lot of cfm you might notice a problem with it keeping up. I use 1 inch pipe until my drop downs. Then I only drop down to a min. 1/2 inch. And if you run a pneumatic and a spray gun you will notice a fluctuation in the pressure to the spray gun. Let us know, I could be wrong.

    Like trying to drink a milkshake through a stir stick.
