TANK TESTING...how does it work

A scuba cylinder needs to be in test to be filled. A new tank needs a visual inspection a year after its manufacture date. This involves emptying the tank, taking the valve off and checking the thread and the inside of the tank for cracks, pitting or for rust in steel tanks. Every other year a tank requires a hydrostatic test. To do this we fill the tank with water and put it under pressure to check the elasticity of the metal. If it stretches too much the tank is failed as the risk is too high that it could burst while filling with air.


Remember this is our busy time of year for equipment servicing , get your tanks and regs in now for Christmas.


Thanks for your business, we appreciate it.

Have a great weekend and we hope to see you out for a dive soon, from the team at Dive Wellington, Dave, Paula, Chris, Kelly and Caity.
