Covered by a 2 year extended warranty./n/nDue to a change in EU legislation the safety valve rings have been removed by ALL manufacturers of air compressors. This is due to the ring being incorrectly used to vent the compressor, causing undue wear which should not be present on a safety device. The air should drained from the tank via the valve on the belly of the tank. This location is used so that the water is drained at the same time.
