Re: DIY - discussion on building a DIY hookah diving compressor

I have a Brownies. Dumped the float and base, put it in the dinghy, much less stuff to store and carry around. Friends use a $130 generator ,hooked up to a $149 oil less compressor for hull cleaning. Works well. Raise the air intake as high as possible on an extension tube. A snorkel with a purge valve works as well as a regulator. Old Johnson Air buoys used that principle.
