Does Auto-Drain feature drain tank pressure?
Does the Auto Drain feature also bleed the tank pressure slowly so that every day the tank will need to be taken from 0-operating pressure? I use my compressor infrequently, but don't want to have to wait 8 minutes for it to come up to pressure every time I want to use it.

The auto drain feature will not drain the tank, only the bowl.

Yes, the auto drain only splits out water when the main tank gets below 5 pounds pressure and I only allow this to work once a month. Remember that this drain only collects moisture that you use from the actual hose and 99% of the water collects at the bottom of the pressure tank which is usually only drained at the end of each day by opening a separate drain cock at the bottom of the tank for a second or two. No need to let all the air out, just a pound or two.
