Our Mantus Scuba Compressor is fast to set up, as we have tested the units before they are sent out. As detailed in the manual here, you only need to:

  • Unpack the compressor
  • Add standard 30W air compressor oil (full synthetic 5W30 in a pinch)
  • Add the breather nozzle
  • Add distilled water (or reverse osmosis/desalinized)
  • Attach the unit to a tank to be filled and a 110V power source

The subsequent maintenence is also detailed in the manual. Storage is also simple as you just perform the setup steps in reverse, leaving the oil in unless shipping. For a visual guide on initial setup of the compressor, please see the video below:
