Hooka sugestions

Iíve been hearing about using cheap oil less 120v compressor to provide air to dive on the boat. Run it off the inverter, and use a low pressure regulator and some cheap hose. Any body done this?

Cheap Oiless

I'm not an expert hooka diver but:
Your "oil-less" compressor really HAS TO BE OIL-LESS (Grade 'E'), or it could kill you.
Take care,
Gord

I have used a hooka extensively but off of my tanks and not with a compressor.

Hookah links

I've collected a few hookah links at: Diving

I'm still just a snorkeler though.

This link talks about a DIY hookah rig.
