how many people will you run across that need tanks filled and willing to pay? i dont think you can make any money at it-- the filters cost about $40 each and are good for somthing like 20-30 fills then the cost of the unit $4k, fuel ect-

Well, they get pretty warm...I know that keeping the air coolish (110F) going into a NITROX setup is a management issue.

Or you could go with a much cheaper, smaller, and lighter hookah compressor. My draft is so shallow, that I could probably do the entire bottom without even going under the water...or in Ram's case, just using a snorkel?

And you would be right. Really needs to sit in the cockpit for there to be enough clearance. The good news is, I was able to remove the entire cage, which cut about 24lbs. off, and made it much smaller. And Nuvair does sell the fan cage separately.
