Re: Shallow Dive System for Bottom Care

Is there an electric hookah pump that will run off a honda generator?

Re: Shallow Dive System for Bottom Care

I can run my Brownie Third Lung off of my Honda 2000i, but have to open the 2nd stage before flipping the switch.

Any 110-volt hookah can be run off an appropriately-sized generator.

A guy that did my bottom in Brunswick had the black hose and its is flexible. Dunno about the yellow hose, it may be like Brownies.

Hey, no problem! I was unable to post a photo of my "better" hose earlier because I needed to get it on board via St. Brendan's Isle,- the mail service for cruiser's. Now that I have it......



All I need now is a couple of brass adapters to fit my hose to the quick disconnects on my filter at the compressor end and my secondary regulator.

Thank you DotDun, Fstbttms, LakeSuperor and all those others added excellent safety advice on this topic.

Re: Shallow Dive System for Bottom Care

I finished a full and casual cleaning and inspecttion of everything underwater today. I remember free diving to change my shaft zinc and so much difficulty. I can not hold my breath nearly as long as when snorkeling when I'm trying to do a job and work to maintain my position.

The compresser and the hose take up some storage space, but I still haven't filled the void from having two teenagers move away and their leaving was over fifteen years ago.
