propane can be transferred from 5ga tanks to camping sized propane carriers (refills)....which is convenient to carry around for use with a small dingy outboard or small engine like one used for a compressor.

YES ! activated carbon filter is needed with regular changes.
YES ! openwater diving training is RECOMMENDED. None of that 2 hour "saftey" crap on cruise liners either (real courses in PADI or NAUI are good).....it is your life and [pressure X volume] changes kill many divers and injure many more so don't skimp on training in scuba or hukah diving.
YES ! compressor MUST be oilless !
YES...YES...YES !
