Moisture from hand pumps

Response to Corrosion in Daystate Regal

Pumping indoors does very little to reduce moisture from hand pumps. You have to get the dew point down to about 0 deg F to be really effective. The moisture can easily corrode any aluminum parts in the tube (valves, gauge blocks, etc.), and that granular corrosion oxide can cut/scratch the o-rings. The lack of effective moisture filters for hand pumps is a real problem. The little harbor freight desiccant filters do almost nothing (the air isn't in the filter long enough to get the moisture out).
