In the tools section. The filter is an air compressor filter. The hoses and clamps i purchased at Pepboys.

Convenient

Well I am glad that the Lowes and Pep Boys in my area are across the street from each other

That bad thing is that it is raining.....and I have no garage. The whole week man! And the damn clouds wait for the weekend....

Did you coat the entry/exit nozzles of the filter with teflon or any similar material to make a seal?

Yes, all threads were sealed with teflon tape.

I had one of these on each of my air compressors for my mini truck to catch condensation, you can get them at home depot in the air compressor section
