Im saying, why worry with filling tanks at all when there are systems that do not require the high psi. The 1st wonka system was going to be a high pressure filling system until Tom and I agreed that the risks was not worth the effort. So, we based our system on a similar system to Trey's. We have a system that runs off of a Hurricane and pumps the pressure up to 140 psi. Endless, UNLIMITED OXYGEN. No need for overnight filling. The system that Tom Doner and I are working on will not run out of 02 while you are working. And hopefully will be considerable less money than the High pressure filling systems. I simply dont believe that enough time and thought has gone in to this system. It would be ok if the price was a little easier to swallow. But at 4000.00, you are still taking a chance on the operation of a system that has not been proven. It is not bashing my competion, it is not that I want to sell more, it is that I see the real advantages of the system like Trey is presenting. The Wonka system will be very similar to his. And by the way, I do have documented stories of people blowing up homes and vehicals and themselves by not taking the necessary precautions when dealing with high pressure o2.
gotcha. I know what I am doing and have spec'd precautions at the appropriate places.

And no way am I paying 4k for a painted homefill form the other guy. My two compressor, two K tank, two oxycon system with all the valving, tubing, all inclusive, cost about $2200. Its a bit steep but much cheaper than a $4k single unit, and most importantly, I am having fun solving oxy problems.

I'll be putting together a system like treys soon, maybe in the next month or three if time permits (all I need is the holding tank and switch, and some doodads) and I will then post all the info.
