This ^. If you use a low ratio mixture of radiator coolant 10 distilled water : 1 coolant, you could make a closed system and not have to worry about replacing water.

Honestly, the water isn't that big a deal to me. The only time I can see if being much of a thing is this winter. I also am going to grab an outdoor case this weekend.

So, I'm about 10 fills or so in now. The oil has definitely held up better. I think you can probably get 3 fills out of it between changes. It's holding up really well so far.

Just a thought - when I was a LT-FF/EMT, we used a cascade system and had our SCBA tanks in a water bath while filling to help with temperatures due to air friction from filling. Have you measured what the tank temps are before/during/after? That may help determine what each fill will actually finish with once you are done and the tank goes back to reg/room temperature.

All in all , this seems like it could be a great purchase for people that aren't that close to HPA fill locations - good read and thanks for posting !

How much of what type of oil does it use per change?

#46 anti-friction hydraulic oil, and about 10oz maybe? Ballparking. I'm filling it from a 16 oz coke bottle I cut in half and a 5 gallon bucket. I can't give you exacts.

Close enough. Thanks!

I just finished setting mine up after having it sit around for a couple of weeks. I bought the 220V version as I have it available and wanted the auto-shutoff. Agree on the super simple setup. I used Loctite 545 on the air hose - the manual says it needs a gasket, but does not indicate in any way what they mean. It comes with a pair of white plastic disks in the rebuild kit that looks like it might be for that - they most definitely are NOT as you can only get a couple of threads engaged with one in place.

I have heard different descriptions of the smell it makes when you use it the first few times - the closest I can describe it is being very similar to baking Sculpey III in an oven.

Sadly, in the process I determined that my underused HPA tank is in need of a reg rebuild and new fill nipple, so I've only filled it once. But I was thoroughly impressed.

And on a quick note Chris, if you hadn't already figured it out, that "exhaust" next to the red popoff - that is not an exhaust. Put the second bleeder knob there. Your fill time should drop to a fraction of what you are getting now. I filled a 72/4500 from 0 to 4500 in about 10 minutes. I didn't install it in there at first and noticed the same thing with air blasting everywhere - re-watched some reviews on youtube, and all of them have that bleeder in there. Threw it in and away it went.
