the air is way dirtier Dr Drow. there is oil and fine particles of dirt it the air, that is why painter use 2 or 3 inline filters to clean the air up before they use it to paint a car

I run one of these and it has been really dependable--I've had it for probably 4 years: hXXp://www.hydrofarm.com/pb_detail.php?itemid=7645 This one is in the flowering room.

I also have 2 of these: hXXp://www.hydrofarm.com/pb_detail.php?itemid=7644 One I have been using for about 2 years. The other is only a couple of months old. They all, of course, run 24/7.

the linear style air pumps are the best IMO they last longer.

Yeah Brosef; I wouldn't use a "garage" style air compressor but one of the smaller "home type" compressors would probably be clean enough. the other problem with that is if there is not an adjustable air pressure regulator so that you can turn the output pressure waaay down, you will blow hoses off and possibly damage the stones. :)

in the linear air pumps the Alita, Secoh and Medo are the quitest pumps around 35 dB. Less noise than the AC unit. They will run a little over $200 and give you great air. with most of these pumps you can set the pump up to 50 ft away and run 1/2 air lines to a manifold. Then go with regular fish tank air line.

i have in my stock the smaller one, it runs loud, i have to muffle the room well because you can't muffle the pump itself, it will overheat
