    get a battery powered one. Wind shifts can cause carbon monoxide to be blown into your intake. I have a Gator Gill It is a pretty decent one
    I also have a spray bottle filled with mouth wash and spray mouth pieces before and after uses
    Good luck keep us posted

    I had a friend with a "two hose" setup for two users at once.
    But he added a reservoir before the split to avoid either of the users from sucking the line empty and making the other user panic.
    Can't remember if he made his or if it is commercially available.

    Basically consisted of a 4' piece of 4" PVC pipe with a cap on either end. A single quick release was on the "entry" end and two quick release connections were on the divers side. Worked very well up to about 30'

    I'm sure there are more online, and youtube has lots of vids on these machines. I want to suggest learning scuba safety procedures also even tho you are tankless.
    Hope this helps,

    ?

    Brownie is the leader in third lung tech.

    Also... I have used compressors of all types for eons... and downgraded to a 285x which has been pounded in hours over 10 years now... with one cup / reed replace.

    2 diver's @ 133 foot stretch.

    Brownie's Marine Group is the world's leader of surface supplied air diving systems.

    So why would you make a statement of "deathtrap"... ?

    O am curious... What do you base this on ?

    My Brownie has been a loyal comp... and I would not even consider another compressor.

    The Brownie's Third Lung cooling ventilation system is very bad and has 1 1/2 inch space between the motor and the housing the airline has over two and a half inch also it uses a Thomas wobble piston compressor, brownies uses a Chinese piston brownies construction .is questionable. Just. Compare them side by side.
    Thanks .and Happy New year, Harvest

    I don't know where you get your info...

    "Thomas and others utilize traditional uncoated aluminum, painted metal parts and iron/steel crank eccentric materials with typical industrial grade petroleum greased bearings"

    Browning uses stainless MADE IN AMERCA PARTS,,, EVEN down to the stainless reeds.

    I am now convinced you either have a stake in Thomas or you have been severally misinformed. Either way you should speak truths.

    "low RPM compressor speed equals longer life, less noise, lower heat factors and all around more pleasant diving than high-speed low-cost air compressors"
