It really isnt that complicated a lot of fields just let the people fill there own
the main limitation is the cost they cost between 2500-4000 bucks

the best and cheapest way is to get a couple scuba tanks. the tanks will run you about 150-180 a piece new and you'll prolly want 2. the scube fill will be about 40-55 bucks. you can get the tanks at a dive shop (you may need to get someone certified to buy it or explain that they will be used for PB) and the fill station at or your local pro shop might have one. then a dive shop can fill the scuba tanks
or go to a welding supply company and try to buy a used tank but you'll need to be 18 to buy a full size tank and then you have to buy a 400 fill station! and the welding supply company should be able to refill it.

If you want to do this the easy way, and not have to pay someone to fill your tanks all the time, then contact the guys at, or send me a PM and I will get your their contact info. He does complete air systems for any size of field and installs the entire setup. There is also a lease to own option if you do not want to dump alot of money right away.

Air and CO2 fills will kill you in terms of cost.

Compressor systems under $10,000 won't keep up if you are busy. Expect a decent return after 3 years! Remember that filling overhead includes compressor amortization, maintenance costs, supervision salary while compressing and fill station salary. I'd recommend talking with 5 different field owners personally to get a good idea of long term costs.
