The biggest problem of the pump or cheap compressor is moisture. I recently disassembled my Hill pump, it was nasty, a lot of residue and rust from moisture in the air. I'm changing dry-pac pellets in a pump at least once a season. Finally decided to go SCBA tank way.

Now you can find hundreds of those tanks on eBay. Most at the end of the lifespan or expired (carbon tank has 15 years lifespan), but the good news most of the tanks got an extension to 30 years. You can get 2003-04 tank for less than $100. Do hydro test for $30-50 – you are good for next 5 years for sure and most likely your tank will not fail hydro for another 15 years
