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

Well, is THAT an explanation why you are fear mongering against the DIY guys, and conjuring lethal dioxine levels in household goods.

But instead of ridiculing the air mattress: You were talking nonsense there, too, right? Confusing posts, confusing pumps.

And hey: For me inflating it ONCE was enough to understand that the pump is stronger than I am. If you would have taken several attempts for that discovery, would that have made you smarter?

Not that you even MADE this discovery until today...

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

Uh, another reading comprehension issue:
Go back to start, respectively posts no. 29 and 30.
Understand who said what.
You will see that an aquarium pump was not discussed.

If you do more of the pesky reading, you will also see that I never said an aquarium pump would be sufficient, I actually told the aquarium-pump-guy that I think it will never have enough flow.

The super experienced hookah-user also didn't discuss aquarium pumps.
He replied to the dinghy-pump-post.

Should I use shorter sentences?
Maybe spell it out?

N-O A-Q-U-A-R-I-U-M.

DUH.

Duh, is right!

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

No, I think it's mainly you.
The other guy just read your post and didn't notice or believe that you didn't know WHICH pump you were talking about.

Everyone else seems to have normal reading comprehension.

Actually, I don't even think you don't understand; you just don't like being called on BS you posted, and are playing dumb.
That's why you come up with a different claim every time you get called.

If not: Just go back, read the posts, and explain who ever said anything about the aquarium pumps.
While you are at it, explain why the navy fears dioxines in household items.





Or did you do a lot of deep diving?

Well, obviously so!

Funny how the guy who thinks he's smarter than everyone else also always seem to have a great, big chip on his shoulder, isn't it? If he thinks someone else has misunderstood him, it's not enough to explain the misunderstanding, he has to throw in a few snide insults too. That's how he proves how very smart he is.

Yeah. Right.

Actually, I have seen that compressor sold on eBay as part of a super-cheapo hookah rig, much as was previously described (complete with a pool-toy snorkel somehow attached to the end of the air hose.) So I suppose it can supply a diver with air. Can it provide enough to adequately supply a diver who is exerting himself while cleaning a boat bottom? Who knows.
