I want to build a 12VDC Hookah which will support two divers while cleaning the bottom of our boat (6 feet). We don’t have room to store one of the floating motorized version, but we have plenty of room to mount one inside the boat.
Here are the basic features \ design elements I’m looking to include.
- 2 Divers for shallow dives less than <30 Feet. 90% of the time < 6eet while we clean the boat bottom
- 12VDC Compressor with switch to cycle on\off to fill reservoir tank
- Reservoir tank to allow air from compressor to cool, and to keep compressor from running continuously
- 40 Micron particle filter
- 4-5 CFM @ 45PSI minimum 100-150PSI maximum
If you have built something or have comments on the specs, let me know!
