Oh yeah, the details.
1. You want the green oxygen tubing. It says oxygen, but the tube that says compressed air is the wrong diameter. You're not a hospital, so the color coding rules don't apply to you.
2. Choose your hose length, then add ten feet for good measure. You'll never regret having a too long cord. What if you want to rearrange furniture one day? The hose doesn't crimp, you can just loop what you're not using.
3. You don't need a ceiling drop.
4. Choose DISS Female Handtight for the end that connects to the air compressor (inlet)
5. Choose DISS male for the end that connects to your mist bottle (outlet)
6. You don't need a 90 degree elbow.
7. Place your order. If you need to call them for help, they actually answer the phones and have a knowledgeable staff that answers questions.
8. When you do your setup, you'll notice that the mist bottle tips over under the weight of the air tubing. I use a heavy plastic mug wedged next to the suction machine to prop it up. You could use duct tape.
9. The air compressor came with a weird J hooky piece. You won't need that anymore.
