Arrow Hydro Testing

Just bought a new gun and the guy gave me an HPA tank.

The tank is expired by just a bit but when I looked on the tank it said "Rehydrotest before 5-2012"

Will this mean if I go to get it tested again they wont?

Before you spend the money to hydro an aluminum cylinder, look at the cost of buying new.

If you have to ship your bottle and pay for a hydro and shipping, it should be right around the same price as buying a brand new 48ci/3000psi system.

Something else to consider - if you purchase this system used or its old, remember there are multiple orings inside that need lubricated to make it seal up and work correctly. If the lube is old, the reg has never been cleaned, etc, you may experience leaks.

I don't have to ship my tank to get it hydro'd I can bring it to my local scuba shop.

Can you give me an estimate on how much a hydro might cost?

It depends upon how much your local shop charges. As B7Lemoore said, $30, my local shop is $19. So they go all over the place, and unless you call, you won't really know.

What is odd is that the bottle is marked 08/07, and the sticker on the tank is marked 05/2012. There is a three month variance there that is odd. In the end, it is what is on the bottle that is more important.
