They are junk and will not survive long in a marine environment.

In reality there are only a couple really reputable recreational-level hookah sellers in this country and they are Airline by J. Sink and Brownie's.

Air Line Diving System | The Air Line by J. Sink
Brownie's Third Lung Diving, Hookah Surface Supplied Air Systems |
Thanks for clarifying this for me! I did not know that there were garage-built "dive compressors" for sale on ebay, though I should not be surprised. When I recommended buying a compressor off ebay, I meant a used brownies third lung or other commercially manufactured unit.
