I've seen the airhog tanks before. I could never find a fell valve that would fill them at any dive shop.

Thanks for everyones input but I think what I might do is just leave 1 114 4500 tank on gun, this will help balance with the 2 halos and run 1 t114 4500 remote. I think this will be my esiest solution.

I have a better solution. Sell your rig. Buy FlatlinesUp's 4-A5 backpack fed rig of doom. Profit.

if you run 2 tanks make sure u run a check valve on both tanks so that they dont back flow

Backflow is only possible on CO2 tanks. You can't backflow 850psi into 4500psi.

i know it wont back flow like that but if the reg fails and dumps 1800- 4500 then you could mess up 2 regs instead of just one.

also if there are any presure differances in the out put the lower psi one might start getting mad at you.

Have this up in the yardsale area, will offer it here for those who may be interested in it as well:

FULL SCBA set-up, use for paintball or fire/ rescue

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a full SCBA set-up. (Link to pics at bottom) Includes:

45 Min air bottle ( 4500 PSI bottle, 45 min breathing supply)
Bottle carrier/ back frame
Shoulder, waist and chest straps
Regulator where the unit screws onto tank, as well as an on demand regulator where the mask hose is attached. ( Two regulators)
Size Medium SCBA mask
Black hard sided carrying case

I was going to try and convert this to run a gun off the tank, or use it as a fill station, but due to other commitments, I haven't the time for this project. am hoping someone can use it for what I was hoping to, or use it for it's intended purpose.

The full unit is in GREAT condition. As I am not a SCBA/SCUBA tech, I can not certify that it is a properly functioning unit. Buyer is responsible for having unit inspected before use. Now that that is out of the way.. As you can see from the pics, I have worn the unit, and it functions fully and properly. bottle holds air, no leaks anywhere in the system, regulators work great, and I believe the second reg. includes the "buddy breather" system.
The bottle is presently at about half capacity, though to conform to shipping requirements, it will be shipped to buyer EMPTY.

Sorry, tells me the Pic size is too large to upload, so just look in the photobucket accnt please, don't have photoshop or anything on this puter yet

Asking $350.00 for the whole set, plus $25 for shipping. ( I would normally include shipping in the price, but as this is a rather heavy item, I must add a little extra for shipping) Would prefer to ship UPS ( insured and tracking), but will ship using whichever method the buyer prefers.

Pics are here: http://s57.photobucket.com/albums/g2...lupa/?start=20

Nice rig. Adapting a scba tank really is not a big dal and it can be done safely s long as it is done by someone who knows what they are doing. Make sure you do before you try it. I admire you for that setup. Though You really should ditch the halo's and go with a backpack of paint and warp feeds.
