Is Your Compressor's Pressure Switch Leaking? Find Out Why
Air compressors are generally equipped with a pressure switch that allows you to better control and gauge the level of pressure at which the unit is operating. However, when the switch is leaking, this isn't always the case. A leaking switch can cause the gauge to provide inaccurate pressure reading and cause the compressor to work at a less than efficient level. Getting to the bottom of the leak can help resolve the problem.
