How long will a typical 675 liter oxygen tank last?

Here is the math:
Tank holds 675 liters.
Insufflation : 1/32 l/m x 32 minutes = 1 liter per session
Water ozonating: 1/8 l/m x 8 minutes = 1 liter per glass
If you do one insufflation and two glasses of water per day,
you will use 3 liters per day. That would last 675 / 3 = 225 days
In practice, you always use more than that, and you can not empty
the tank to zero, or they will charge you another $25 for "purging"
the tank, so in the real world this usually only lasts half as long. That
is still over 3 months.
Funneling in the sauna : 1/8 l/m x 32 minutes = 4 liters
No funnel, filling the sauna : 1/2 l/m x 30 minutes = 15 liters
Water ozonating: 1/8 l/m x 8 minutes = 1 liter
So two glasses of water, and a sauna without the funnel would use
16 liters daily. That would last 42 days nominally, but probably less
than a month of real world use.
Of course, if there are two people using the equipment, the length of time
Best of health!
