    Well of course after i posted, I did find a parts explosion to the Campbell Hausfeld DC040500 model (which @DanaHunt thought was Diaphragm), and it is most definitely a Piston pump, and NOT a Diaphragm pump, if anyone is curious. Surely the Kobalt is the same concept. I guess that means that even the professional models are as well. Looks like I will now search for a very good filter, and perform a long run-in process on whichever compressor I end up choosing.

    Any actual confirmed diaphragm compressors on the shelf that can do 6+ cfm @ 120psi?

    6+ cfm has too high of a current draw for 110v circuits. There are many out there that will do it, but are 220v only.

    Does anybody know what happened to the OP, @Ben Diver ? His last post on this thread was July ‘18 and he last checked SB on Sept. ‘18, yet he was going to post more information and results from using his DIY system.

    I think he posted the results starting here:
    $50 Harbor Freight hookah system testing
    and added 3 or 4 posts of more detail. He got an air test that looked good, dived it, posted a report, posted a video of two people using it simultaneously.

    Yes, i saw the pool test, but not results for use in ocean, scallop diving, boat work, long term maintenance etc. would have been interesting to hear about.

    10 psi would only get air down to 23 feet at no pressure or flow.
