All you need is a hose that connects to the tank and a valve to regulate it. However a 4500 psi compressor is much, much more expensive than either getting the tank filled by itself, or buying a Scuba tank to refill from.

How do you use a paintball fill station?

I assume you mean an HPA fill station. You connect the fill hose to the fill nipple of your tank by pulling the collar on the fitting at the end of the hose away from the tank, while pushing the fitting towards the tank. There will be some sort of lever, button, or knob you will push to open the valve to fill your tank. Once the pressure gauge on your tank reaches the "FULL" mark (either 3000 or 4500psi, depending on your tank), you release the button/lever/knobzperiodz

Can you fill a paintball HPA tank with an air compressor?

Only if it can produce 3000 or 4500 PSI . Take it to a paintball store and normally they give you a fill for a dollar or so. If you are playing and you need to refill, go to the refill station, attach the fill hose to the air nipple while the tank is on the gun, press the lever or button until it is filled at the correct pressure.

Is there a difference in a scuba tank and a paintball tank?

Yes the main difference is a SCUBA tank is used for high pressure breathing air (3200-5000 PSI). A paintball tank has a lower PSI rating and is also measured in ounces not PSI. Even though most people use a breathing air compressor to fill paintball tanks.

How do you refill a compressed air paintball tank?

To refill a paintball tank, you must first go to a paintball field or store with a paintball air compressor. You can't refill them with just any home depot compressor, it takes serious pressure to fill these tanks. Find the fill station with the same pressure as your tank (3000, 4500 or 5000 psi) and hook up the fill hose to the fill nipple on the side of the tank while it is attached to your gun. Then press the lever or button in until the gauge on your tank or on the filler is at the correct pressure and release. Then unhook the fill hose.

How do you refill a co2 tank for a paintball gun?

Take it to a shop! if you want to do it yourself the normal way is to put the bottle on scales and fill it from a larger bottle to a fill weight. To be honest though CO2 is well out of date. A smart move would be to move onto compressed air.

How do you you recharge a paintball compresed air tank with home materials?

First you must determine if your gun can use compressed air. Consult the manual for this (most guns can, but certain guns require high or low pressure air tanks). Then purchase either a metal (low end) or carbon fiber/fiberglass tank (high end) with the pressure and size of your budget and liking. Then screw in the tank as you would a co2 canister, then head over to a Paintball air refill station, ask a referee or a friend how to fill it, then hook it up, and fill it.
