    Shallow water hooka system, can i build one cheap??

    Iv bin looking at Hooka systems and wondering if any of you guys have built your own, I would be using it 5 to 8 foot of water and would go with a electric set-up...

    Whats some of your thoughts on building one??

    Hi toecutter. Yes you can build your own hookah unit. Several years ago I built 2 units. A general formula for your compressor would be.. you need 1 psi of pressure per foot of depth and 1.5 cubic feet of air for each 33 feet of depth of water. Counting the surface as 1 atmosphere (33 ft.) I used a 4hp lawn mower motor hooked to the compressor with filters to catch any oil particles that might seep through. You also hook a small air tank to the compressor so tha you have plenty of air available. You mount this on a round piece of plywood and strap it on top of a truck or tractor inner tube. If you are interested contact me and I will give you more specific information.l used my units for 10 years from Florida to the Great Lakes and numerous stone quarries and lakes. Good luck

    A couple other alternatives would be the Nemo or AirBuddy. They are both battery operated and float around with you wherever you swim. I did purchase the Nemo myself but have not received it yet so I cannot say how good/bad it is. But from the reviews & research I have read, I'm looking forward to using it.

    The Nemo has a 10' air tube, which is what you're looking for, and changeable batteries.
    The AirBuddy has a 40' air tube but unfortunately just the one battery source.

    I plan on using a SCUBA tank with a long hose hooked to a regulator. You can buy in various lengths. Should be able to last a couple of hours on a full tank. Can place in a cheap Walmart raft with a dive flag and you're set to go.
