FYI The valve on that tank is nice and slow when you turn the handle. I will not call it a slow flow valve that is commonly sold at $225 but with this valve you will not need one. When i first used it I was a little creeped out. I turned the handle a few times and nothing was happening. so I closed it back then went to try again and a few additional turns it began to fill. Not so slow that its bad just a nice steady flow. I love the valve.

Buying a hose setup for an SCBA vs a DIN-300 is about the same cost from JoeB but the one comment I will share is that not all Dive shops have the adapter for the SCBA to fill the tank. Some do and some don’t so what you may end up having to do is buy/build a filling adapter. I built one with a Hand tight SCBA fitting to a coupler to a foster fitting since I know my shop fills paintball they are foster friendly. I bought my pieces from a place called North Shore Compressor & Machine. The hand tights are usually out of stock so call and pay so you get them when they do come into stock. They are always sold out from my XP.

Pieces I bought:

$37.50 P/N F-06151 CGA 347 Hand Nut & Nipple
$2.60   P/N F-01116 1/4 FNTP x 1/8 FNPT Coupler
$11.54 P/N F-08111 PB Quick Disconnect Nipple

FYI They do also sell various hose assemblies and things of interest but building your own is always cheaper.

With Zero pressure in the tanks it may be prudent to ensure there is not any moisture inside the tanks. They are wet in the pictures so if those valves arent closed and they are outside.. they will need to be dried out somehow. My dive shop may even want to inspect the inside since there is zero pressure. I’m not sure. Call your dive or fill shops as they are all a little picky in their own ways,

Hope this helps.
