Thank you for the reply, All great recommendations. Would sweating copper suffice or does it need to be braised? Also I'm not quite understanding how to relocate a drain from the bottom of the tank up to where I can reach it, wouldn't the drain have to be at the lowest point? I'm sure it's something simple I'm missingYou can always use a smaller drive pulley and slow that Quincy down to reduce noise if you don't need the full CFM. You'll want to research the minimum speed for that pump.
As for tips. . .
1- Slope all your permanent lines, low point at the end, then put a drop & dump valve there. If you use copper it makes a great condenser.
2- Use vibration isolators to mount the compressor, and don't use any rigid tubes between the compressor and the wall.
3- Take the drain valve out of the bottom of the tank and use a tube to relocate it up where you can reach it standing up, and if possible rout the discharge outside.
