Re: beathing apparatus for or bottom maintenaince

I once needed to borrow a 12VAC hookah from a friend who maintains a charter fleet. He had been using his hookah for years. The compressor was labeled "Central Pneumatic."
I believe that it was this one:

After I changed my zinc, I returned it and have not borrowed it again.

No, it's not. As has been mentioned several times, all of the commercial hookah systems use compressors that were originally designed for other purposes. NO ONE builds a compressor from scratch specifically for use in hookah systems.

And, by the way, I was planning to add an air filter anyway.

The question remains... The Pacbrake HP625 -- based on its specifications -- appears to be very well suited to hookah use. So I'm still wondering if anyone has built a 12 volt system around it. At this point, I'm beginning to suspect the answer is "no."

OK, well I guess I should have said "compressor system."

Good luck.
