cleanest PCP air source / supplyJune 17 2017 at 4:50 PM

I'm starting from zero PCP equipment and looking to figure out what will give me the cleanest air. I'm thinking (in order of most clean to least clean with the understanding that the difference between 1 & 4 might not be substantial):
1) scuba shop fill
2) nitrogen tank rented from welding supply shop
3) professional dive compressor from a reputable source
4) Shoe box or similar with appropriate filter
5) hand pump
All options would be used with a carbon fiber tank (with the exception of 5). I'm not considering a hand pump but listed it only as a point of reference.
I'm not trying to criticize any given equipment or set up but I am trying to get educated and confirm my assumptions. Why? Because I plan on getting back into PCP and would like to minimize maintenance and/or down time caused by liquid or debris in the mechanism.
Thanks for your advice!
