Brake fluid question

Post by nickpohlaandp » Tue Oct 10, 2017 10:04 pm

So I've been doing a lot of side work lately to find my project. Naturally that includes brake jobs. I'm thinking about building an auto bleeder out of one of those weed sprayer things. I'm curious, if I leave clean brake fluid will it be ok to store that way, or would I need to purge the container with some inert gas prior to storage to prevent it from collecting moisture? Thanks in advance for your help.

Storage in a sealed container is not a problem, long term storage with contact with the atmosphere will allow the fluid to absorb water.

Napa stores are a good source for brake fittings.
