I don't want to misinform anyone. Be safe...get it hydro'd.

I couldn't agree with you more. My lil 13ci goes through more filling and decompression cycles that the cost to have it hydro'd is worth than any potential failure even if its remote.

Isn't it standard practice for hydro testing to over pressurize tanks?
I'd be more worried about using a tank that underwent such testing.
Personally, I prefer to not fill my tanks to the max.
That's a standard I can live with.

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...

I prefer not to spend money when I don't have to. In other words if I don't have to have it hydod then I wont.

Okay. Also, some of you might be interested in this. It's an online store in Poland that sells 8, 10, and 12ci tanks, among others. The tank itself is about $25, but shipping to the US will double that price, so $50 shipped to your door... not bad. The real beauty is that when you increase your order, the shipping stays the same, and when you get up to 125 orders shipping is free.

If anyone wants to get in on a bulk order of these, then let me know. Hell, even if only two people want to order together, you'd still be getting a tank shipped to you for less than $40.

Right but the issue with the last couple posts are.. 1 if we have them shipped from poland we still have to get them tc stamped which will cost bonus money im sure. And 2 the spare air tanks are about 140mixed without the reg direct from spar air. For one unit. Neither one of these is a viable option. Especially not for something that many of us are going to buy more than one of
