Really enjoy scuba diving so next best thing is having this little tank to be under water for 20 minutes or so. Easy to use and carry.
Great customer service replaced a faulty compressor quickly with no hassle.I highly recommend.The product I ordered arrived earlier than expected.Everything works and I use it whenever I dive... Just about daily.
I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this - very good fit and finish and I don’t think if you bought this in a dive shop it would look any better. The shoulder holder works well. Those are the pluses. There are some minor minuses which I will list here:The gauge is a little hard to read the numbers, but once you figure out what numbers go with the color code, you’re fine.The mouth low pressure valve is a little sticky - in other words, as you breath in, it really takes a good bit of negative lung pressure to get it to activate fully. It wasn’t too bad - I like it a little bit that way so you don’t use so much air. Also, the front unscrews easily and comes apart nicely. There is a tiny nut on the actual valve and it looks like this may be an adjustment for this. Haven’t gotten around to looking for my tiny wrenches yet.The directions are OK, but not very detailed - for instance there is nothing about adjusting the second stage valve and the English is OK, but not great.The little cap that covers the fill nipple is not a tight enough fit. This lets water get into the fill nipple which if you’re not careful, will end up in the tank when you next fill it.Worst off, the low pressure hose smelled terribly of industrial manufacturing. Not breathing grade. I soaked and rinsed off the secondary valve and hose, and noticed a slight oily residue on top of the water. Then I assembled it and pumped up the tank to about 2000 psi to try it out. After 5 minutes using it in the pool, my lungs started to burn. I stopped, and let the air out. I rinsed out the hose several more times, noticing there was still a slight oily residue on the water. I also washed out the interior of the tank this time. I’m afraid they used an industrial hose instead of one specifically for breathing. However, it is also possible my pump contributed to this. I do have an oil-free pump, but I will now get the tank filled with scuba air and see if I notice a difference. If I do, I will update here appropriately. If my lungs continue to burn and I can determine it’s because of the hose, this will end up a one-star.
