      Do you still make your own nitrox with a homefill?

        Yes I do i can send a pic of the set up if you like.

        Many cite a problem with the high argon content being about 4% of the O2 generated. but there is not that much O2 added to a mix of say 32%

        For a 32 % mix you add about 18% pure O2 and top with air. that gives a final mix of about 68 N ,,,,,,, 21% O2 from air with about 1% argon in it and 18% pure O2 with about 1% argon. regular air has a little less than 1% in it so your final mix now has perhaps 1.7 to 1.8 argon instead of say .9%. that level is not and issue in our rec diving presssures.

        When it comes to deco gas I get a fill of pure O2 in the deco tank. Only because i dont know how 4% argon would effect deco. It may be a moot point.
