If it was a 5k disc that burst, being filled from a 3k scuba system, the problem is assumedly with the disc itself, either fatigue or a manufacturing flaw. It's not as if the regulator could somehow compress the air in the bottle beyond the fill pressure.

I'd do it.

I do many things that some might not think "safe". Still around after 50 yrs. I also think that most people are overly cautious.

One of these days, Darwin will stop by but not this day.

The field ought to sell you one off their rental tanks if they don't have any handy to sell you. I once bought a fill nipple from the rental shop at my local PB field and they took it off one of their tanks.

Its so strange, back when I hit the field every other weekend I would see no one with squeegees or pull-thru squeegee cables and I'd be like 'WTF these people are unprepared' .. but if I had a broken blown-out burst disc these same people would be like, "Oh, take mine, have like 5 of them." "No, take mine!"
