  • sam:

    Is the quality of air the same as the dive shop? could 6 tanks be filled at the same time? How much would it cost to ship to honolulu hi?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    Yes, as this is the same type and style of compressor commonly used in smaller dive shops. In fact, we use a version of the 90 ourselves here. The best way to determine shipping costs (as this is an ongoing database and over time pricing fluctuates) is to enter the order into a cart and fill out the shipping and billing info. Before sending the order hit the UPDATE button and the shipping charges should be displayed.
