Re: Any ideas on this Hooka type dive compressor system?

Thanks for the zinc help.
So if it is 50% or over gone replace it or the screws are showing.

Is this the Sea Breathe Model 130-D and 230-D deck units (https://www.seabreathe.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=2)? If so they are quite expensive for us. Nice though! ...
