do the bottles for your air tank have the same fill nipple? if so no, other wise you're going to need this: http://www.actionvillage.com/031-530-0005

hope that helps.

what he said ^^^

only problem could be if the fill tank has too low of a pressure like 1500 or if pressure is to high

i know fire dept Bottles are no more than 4500( my volley dept actually had a few that were 2216) . the problem with filling them off of you cascade system is the fill head on an air pack is ALOT bigger than on a compressed air tank. Not to mention that there is no nipple attachment along with the cascade system.

I don't think that will work, that's for filling pb tanks from a scuba tank, what you'll need is a scba fill hose to pb tank adapter, http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=STRK:MEWAX:IT
