    Both style regulators work the same. Iíve just got used to using the pediatrics in the 1/32 measurements. Iíve used the others tho. The flow rates on the pediatric are lower than the regular ones. I just bought 3 new pediatrics on Amazon for 69.00 delivered. The seals in them do wear out causing them to leak your oxygen out really quickly. I bang mine around in the truck and boat a lot also which isnít really good for em. I always dip mine in the water to check for leaks (also not good for them). Make sure you buy some spare seal gaskets. They need replacing every other bottle or MAYBE 3. If by chance you know someone using medical oxygen, they can save you their extra seal gaskets. They are usually the gray plastic ones. I use the brass/rubber ones.

    One more thing. USE A CERAMIC OXYGEN DIFFUSER, not an air stone. The ceramic diffusers cause back pressure on the bottle using 1/10th less oxygen that an air stone uses plus the bubbles are much smaller allowing the water to absorb much more oxygen. Used two or three days a week, I can get a month or so out of a D bottle if there arenít any leaks. Running 24/7 when I haul my own bait to a tourney, an E bottle will last about a week, but I also have a 110v medical oxygen machine for when I get to where Iím going.

    Find a buddy with a medical supply shop that will hook you up or someone that has a prescription for oxygen that can exchange them for you. Iím lucky. I sold a boat to a guy that has a medical supply shop. He even delivers to my shop. Just got 5 D bottles and 3 M6 (Small) bottles exchanged. I have 4 E bottles, 9 D bottles, and 7 M6 bottles plus a 110v oxygen machine.

    I also have a connection for you guys near Greenville MS.

    Question Bill.... Why not just use welding and cutting grade oxygen ? I mean ...Does it really matter to the fish ? Or for that matter...could you even use Scuba diving oxygen ?
    I have spent most my life fishing........the rest I wasted.

    You can use that but the welding bottles weigh a ton and are much more bulky and difficult to stow in a boat. Not sure about diving stuff, but I do know that Oxygen is Oxygen. Itís just how you transport it.

    How about calling a fish hatchery and seeing where they get oxygen as I bout fish to stock in pond and they bagged them in plastic bags filled with oxygen to transport. Just a thought.

    Medical and industrial oxygen are the same. Comes out of same tank. When you fill medical oxygen you must check purity with a analyzer to make sure that it test 99.999 pure. I believe that everyone wants to use the small medical bottles because they are small and easy to handle. You need to be careful when trans-filling from larger tank to small tank, you will feel the tanks getting warm and can damage your cylinders. Slow filling to equalize pressure is best.

    You used compressed air for diving not oxygen.

    I fill my own off of my welding oxygen bottles. You can only fill to equal pressure in the large tank but beats the hassle of trying to get them filled.

    You can also buy a regulator from Boyd's that will fit right into a welding oxygen tank, these tanks come in all sizes. You can lease a small oxygen tank from Airgas or purchase one. You will have to go back to airgas to get it filled each time. You exchange the empty bottle each time for a filled bottle. Airgas will take care of making sure the DOT stamp is current.

    You can buy the fittings to fill medical and welding bottles. I can fill both, you can buy or lease the small welding oxygen tanks from 20" to as big as you want. When I pull one of my large oxygen bottles down I finish it off keeping minnows at my place alive or using it up on the cutting torch. I keep one large tank full at all times.

    It is best to buy the fill fittings and gauge from someone like Boyd's. These must have the proper pressure ratings. Make sure and don't have any grease, oil or petroleum products around the fittings and Do Not Smoke Around Oxygen!

    Boyd's One Stop Fishing Store has everything that you need. They have a Facebook page.
