We have Expello automatic air drain valves on our buses. They don't seem to work properly - our new buses have them fail after a year or so, water accumulates in the tanks, and they take out the D-2's. Anyone have any advice about either a) what we might be doing wrong, or b) a better option for drain valves?

We've opted to plumb a manual drain valve between the tank and auto drain valve so we can manually drain them as needed.

Does anyone have automatic drain valves that actually work without a problem?
