Hydro testing near Manhattan, Kansas?

I have several CO2 tanks that need hydro testing. Is a hydro on a CO2 tank worth doing?

Also, I am confused... Do 9 oz and smaller tanks require hydro's? I seem to recall some thing about the 2*2 rule but never really understood it.

So... Buy new tanks or hydro?

2" rule - if a container is less than 2" across, it does not have to be rehydro'd every 5 years.

Is the hydro on a CO2 tank worth doing? Not generally. When you can buy 20oz tanks, brand new, for $20 each, and hydro generally costs $40 to $50 each, yeah, most of us pull the valves off and sell the parts to recyclers (most tanks are aluminum and most valves are brass). Especially since Blue Rhino stopped doing their CO2 refund/refill programs at Lowes, there's not really many options out there.

The problem with America is that we confuse our politics for religion, and our religions for science.

Watch this space for an upcoming sale and in the meantime, check out my my feedback
