Most likely no one will know. Dude, just get them to do it and save the hassel, so what if you pay a few extra bucks.

What do they do in hydro testing? I'm guessin it has to do with water because Hydro means water.......

Just a guess, but maybe they put it under a lot of pressure, water has that, and see if the tank can withstand it.

it should cost only 39 to 50 dollars, anything more is a little out of ordinary

fiberwrapped tanks need to be tested every three years right? How about the steel/other metal nitro tanks? How often do they need testing?

Steel nitro tanks or steel CO2 tanks are tested every 5 years.

Any place that refills fire extingushers (look it up in the yellow pages) should also hydro-test. In addition, just about anywhere that supplies industrial compressed gas should have the equiptment to do it. Around the Midwest, BOC gas is big, but just call around.
