Alright so:

1. Build a liquid cooling system for your compressor.

2. Remove the cutoff switch.

3. Use a bigger/stronger tank.


It's like having a completely different compressor!...wait a second...

no that could get dangerous. I would like to stick with steel as the main chamber for my air compressor regardless of what the pvc is rated to I would just feel more safe.

you still don't get it do you? copper pipe is not as safe as steel and therefore i won't use it regardless of what you say

ps: my little brother was on this site so please disregard anything the little idiot said

Your air compressor wouldn't probably even be able to break sch 40 pvc let alone sch 80.
