Hill has moisture packs available for silly prices. This is the stuff that goes in the plastic intake filter and helps remove moisture from the air. Brilliant!

A member suggested silica based kitty litter. This is a great idea, an i was wondering if anyone has used anything else, and what the cost and availability of it is.

Cheers!

I was thinking that there would be something out there that would be just as good or better and less than $18 a pack.

Yes scuba shops have the identical beads of desiccant. They have it in large barrels, but some shops will sell it by the plastic bag or bottle for around $15 to $20 a litre.

Get yourself an In-Line Air Filter with Moisture Trap a while back I built myself a silent compressor for my airbrush hobby and I use one very similar to the one in the picture to keep the moisture out of my airbrush works great.

I just ordered a hill dry kit for my pump from airgun source! I noticed they did have any replacement dry packs in stock, so I'll be looking at other options myself.
