    INSTEAD OF A DIVE SHOP - TRY AND FIND A PLACE THAT DOES FIRE EXTINGUISHERS AND OTHER GASES - PAINT BALL TANKS ETC.
    Buy extra tanks if you can - my guy does safety checks on tanks every year and charges a few bucks to do it - i think i pay $5
    a tank to fill and drop all 3 of at once - usually get them the next day - I dont need to be certified to get them filled there

    Now that I know I can get my tank filled locally...

    What Im building is basically the same thing in your video...

    Dive tank with floater...
    Air hose with regulator...

    With using a inspected tank and new hose/regulator wheres the risk??

    Not sure what you paid for your ready made system but Ill have about 200$ into this system, Im thinking yours is a bit more then a "few bucks"more.. 900$-1200$ Im guessing

    $500 bucks.. Inspected tank and regulator no problems...The diving certification course I took said only have tanks FILLED at a reputable dive center. Had a section in the course about contaminated air... I know the dive shop filters the air... does the place that fills paint ball guns and fire extingushers do the same? If there is moisture in the air it will corrode your air tank ….. that is correct isn't it
