it was born in 99 so its lifespan is good until Dec 2014. You can rehydro it one more time.

this is the special permit for your tank.

Great, thank you.

Any idea as to the size? I know it is a 3000psi, but I cannot find anything on the net that says the size. I found a very old forum post that said it "may" be a 68/3000.

based upon the size in the picture I would guess it is a 68 but to be sure you would have to luxfer part number againts their site to be completely correct.

all tanks except Stakos can be rehydroed, with a life span of about 15 years i think?

that tank was made in December 1999, and should be hydroed every 3 years. How you know is from that little arrow symbol with 12 on the left, and 99 on right, left side is the month, and right is the year it was made...

personally, i wouldnt take the chance, rather buy a new tank.

Hydro 20 bucks for 4 more years of life or a new tank for 100+ bucks. I would hydro the tank and at the end of the 4 years toss it in the trash (minus reg) then go buy a new one good for another 15 years.

My thoughts as well. It will be perfect for limited ball.

If it can have a rehydro done then you mine as well save your money and use it.

That tank (DOT-E 10915) has a 5 year rehydro cycle.
