    @Graeme Fraser "Looks like a life of poverty awaits."....you just wait until you want a booster and an o2 cascade....and a mini fill station because you can't be bothered to go to the LDS anymore to get your rb tanks filled. :eek:

    I still use my LDS. They fill my OC tanks.
    Which I bring home and use with my booster to fill the diluent bottle, blend into trimix, fill the drysuit bottle...

    I have got a 300 bar Coltri compressor and I bank air in my old 250 bar 12+12 steel double. Keeping the manifold closed I have a small cascade. I run the compressor (with double filter and condenser) only once every 3-5 weeks. Except if my sons decide to dive .... then I have to fill their 15lt/18lt.
    I run the booster either from my shop compressor (with added air oil separator) or from oneof the air tanks lying around in the garage .... I also have my split 10+10 I sometime use for cave diving.
    I see my LDS only to by filtering materials for the compressor if I decide I save on shipping and splurge on gasoline for the car :)

    Cheers
