Does anyone add anything to their compressor's cooling water so it does not get slimly.   
If it is broke, I can fix it.

Yes! I used to own an Omega Air-Charger, and they used some sort of "Blue" liquid, but I don't remember the actual name. Steve (steveoh) owns that compressor now, and if he reads this he can look up the product in the manual. I looked on line, but couldn't find it.

One more thing. They tell (Omega) tells you to use de-ionized water, but I used distilled as it is somewhat purer, and won't have any other chemicals except H2O. City water isn't safe in these cases.

I have a Hill EC-3000 compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your tank as a courtesy (4,250 PSI limit).

Thanks Alan, I have distilled water in it now, I will wait until your friend finds out what the blue stuff is.

I believe it callled Blue Ice Alan that's what I used in my Omega and AV 4500.  Along with anti-freeze.

Was like pulling hen's teeth finding my manual. I obviously put it in a safe place.

The manual states they ship with Royal Purple Radiator Coolant.
