Steve, I'm glad to hear that the projected life is 200 hours. I had thought that it was 100 hours, but don't recall where I heard that. There is some additional information in the manual suggesting that the "piston should not be removed unless there is evidence of significant leakage past the rings", and then elsewhere it refers to the 200 hour replacement.scubasteve59 wrote:That's the minimum life of the third stage (200) according to the manf. as it works harder with highest pressure. The other stages are rated around 500+. You should get more of course depending on service and operating conditions.
