RE: Any Recommendation for Air Pump?
On the Dynamaster, I think you can just hook up air lines and go. Depending
on the amount of air it puts out, it may or may not be worth while to
connect it to an air supply manifold [length of PVC with air valves]. I
don't think this pump warrants a 1 1/4" closed, loop back PVC supply system.
They are also great if you don't mind sleeping with ear plugs in your ears!
They are real bangers!
I strongly suggest you get a low end linear piston pump from Jehm Co.
[www.jehmco.com] They are virtually dead quiet, and will supply more air
than you can use right now with your setup. They are expensive vs. what you
are considering, but you get what you pay for. I have the LP-100 at 4.3 CFM
@ 2 PSI. They are a true, linear piston pump, not a linear diaphragm piston
pump. Some people have the linear diaphragm piston pumps and report good
results with them as well as with blowers. Study what you need.
