Default Red max with Nat gas & Oxy con?

I'd like to run my Red Max on natural gas and either an oxygen generator or oxygen concentrators. Any opinions? I currently use tanked Oxygen and propane, and mostly use the minor.

We're on 5 psi NG with Red Maxes and couldn't be happier. I can't imagine them performing well at standard residential pressure, though (we had our service pressure boosted). Red Maxes like oxy. We're each on 3 EX-15 oxycons and it seems adequate.

Thanks Phil,

Does your provider boost the pressure or do you have a separate pressure booster? My husband is concerned about gas leaks with a separate pressure booster.

The property is zoned commercial mixed use. Do you think there is a chance the pressure is higher for commercial buildings?

Good to know about the oxy cons too!

Thanks again!
