    Default Lapierre Releaser

    I pick up a Lapierre releaser 12X12X18X6 It has the float balls in it, would that take the place of a moisture trap?

    No, the moisture trap goes between the pump and the releaser. Any moisture to get thru the releaser gets stopped before it gets into the vacuum pump, it is to protect the pump.

    This releaser has 4 - 1" threaded holes for the inlet I will have a 1- 1/4" line coming in My plan is to plug the holes and drill and tap out a 1 - 1/4 hole do you see any problem with this? I have the drill and tap.
