Thank you sealark I see the Bowers are made in Germany are there any issues I should be sure and avoid when choosing a fill station

Re: Compressor for fills

Run it when most of the better ones start up they sound like a bad rod bearing. It will stop knocking when pressure builds in the last stage floating piston. If pressure builds to specs it should be good.
