Talking

Moe , no , maybe it will be enough that it was mentioned .
Terry , glad you are interested .
Terry Lingle , a Loop or ring main is the best system as you say it allows air to flow through both sides to a single drop , but it also has the benefit of allowing another device to be used without serious reduction to a downstream device up to the rated CFM of the compressor . At least in theory .
I will cover this more later but I also pitch the main to a drop that is basically a drip leg if the system has or does have a water problem . Adding a receiver to the system equal distant would help with heavy intermittent use .
