Hello ... can someone answer the following.

1. How much pressure does a Scuba Tank hold?
2. How many time can you fill a 48/3000 psi tank from the Scuba Tank?

I would like to know if someone can help me with this.

scubas are kinda like paintball tanks. they come in various sizes, and different pressures. as far as refils the best way we found to run scubas is in a cascade style system. where you do the bulk fill off one bottle, and top of off with the other.

actually there are several different psi limits on scubas. old ones are like 2250psi, I think they go up to if not more than 4500 psi now. but those are very expensive. 3000 psi is the average one. I think there is more than one size as well.
how many fills, it's reall hard to say, because you usually don't drain a tank before filling back up, but toping it of inbetween games. 500 psi here, 1500 there. who knows by the end of the day.. but I would say 2 people could get a days worth of play from it before it can't be filled enough to last a game..
btw, most places require you to be scuba certified before they'll fill your scuba tank too.

Thanks for the info ... I guess I am going to have to take a certification course if I am going to get this done ...

I am too poor to buy a compressor ... lol
