As long as they don't fail hydro testing or show external damage, DOT-3AL cylinders are good "forever".

Does Canada's 1 litre rule then also apply to 48/3000, 50/4500, etc? That doesn't seem right...

One thing most people seem to miss is that the only exempt tanks in the 2x2 rule are made by Catalina Cylinder's Cliff Division. I don't think all 13ci tanks are made by them. I've only ever seen 2 13CI cylinders that were specifically marked as from Cliff Division, but I know that quite often the cylinder manufacturer isn't marked, or is covered up. You'd have to look up the numbers on the tank.

Yep, Canadian exemption rule applies to all tanks, any psi, any material, under 1L volume (about 61 cubic inch). Metal tanks still have a 25 year lifespan, fiber 15 year. vv0mp confirmed this explicitly when he contacted Transport Canada for clarification a short while back.

Wish I would known before I bought my 68/4500. Oh well...

The biggest problem is not the the 2x2 1 liter rules. It whether a field or shop chooses to fill them, some will refuse unless in Hydro date..Most hydro shops are just not set up to test a tank this small and hence the reason for the rule in the first place..

But there is no hydro date for the 2x2 rule or the 1 litre rule in Canada. There is only a born on date.

It just goes to show that the paintball industry is full of uninformed amateurs.

At the same rate, if someone came in with a rusty looking POS tank with a reg looking like it came from a plumbing shop, they have the right!

Absolutely. It's in the rules that every tank must pass a physical inspection of the exterior of the tank and the person doing the filling is obligated to not fill a tank that is supect of being compromised.
