I just sat down at my confuser...way to go man. Bet you learned more in the long run. Congrats. Btw, I put 2 unions in my system, one close to the flex hose at my compressor outlet and the other before it goes into my desiccant dryer.

I used pex tubing rather than copper , pex will handle all the pressure I need and it was a whole lot cheaper , with me even being a plumber , I choose to use something just as good. but cheaper. And it's much easier to add to or fix when ever need be.
The pex pipe I use will handle 160 psi at 73 degrees and 100 psi at 120 degrees
and most of us will never need any more than those prssures at those temps

Want to say thank you again for everyone's input. I learned a lot plumbing the air system in my garage. I appreciate your patience with all my rookie questions.

I don't think that you need a wet rag for it because it cool by itself after few minutes. I think the water on the rag may weak your joint or weld. So don't use any rug but never forget to use hard gloves because if you touched it right after a weld then it would harm you hand.
