I think all of my tanks are a 5yr hydro date. I could be wrong and it could be 3. I'll have to see when I get home.

The 2x2 rule exempts the tank from hydro not the visual inspection. Is your safety not worth $20 to test a tank? Out of hydro means I am not filling it regardless of size.

No that is just how far back Canada is from the rest of the world

WOAH woah woah. Did I read that right? That would mean a 45/4500 is hydro exempt in Canada... Where did you hear about this?

Why not just go to a beverage supply company,(they're the people who supply co2 to bars/food places) or a welding supply shop and get a tank of co2? It's like buying a keg of beer. You put down a deposit on the tank, and pay for the co2 inside it.

Five-ten lb. tank would be more than plenty for a good while, and is easy to carry. Co2 fill stations are not expensive, and extremely easy to use. Fill the tank at home, and go play.

I have a hard time believing that anything under a liter (61 cubic inches) is exempt from hydro testing. I bet the tank material also plays into that. But trying to find anything with a quick google search pulled up nothing... other than all of our posts here and other paintball sites going back to the early 2000's.

I just did a search too... There was a thread last year where this exact thing came up.

Hpa tank

http://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/8...us%20Goods.pdf

24.2.1.6
Containers with a capacity of 1.0 L water or less shall be
exempt from periodic requalification

God bless Canada?! I'm getting me a 45/45 I think!

Impossible, they obviously don't exist. You do have the luxurious option of renting one of our steel 3K tanks though.

I am lucky enough that my job calls for me to have 20# CO2 bottles on hand. They don't even mind if I borrow one and bring it to the field. Funny thing is... S.C. Village now has a policy against people bringing their own tanks and filling in the parking lot. They will kick you out for it. So lame..

Can you tell this is one issue that really bugs me?

No we really couldnt...


The visual inspection is an important part. Thats why i stopped covering my little tanks with camo tape. The field would just make me take it off anyway.
