I have always bought my 2nd stage regs from Innovative Designs in Florida. The regs they sell are designed for use in a hookah system and my experience is they perform flawlessly with little or no maintenance. Here is a link:

To attach the hose (breathing grade only) to the compressor, most guys just use brass hose fittings, quick-disconnects and hose clamps. Nothing special.
