I don't personally know of any places in MD or VA that are close, but Crossfire's service is pretty damn good. $25 for the hydro (+ Shipping) and if they break your reg/bottle, they'll replace it. Usually the turnaround is less than a week.

There aren't many scuba shops in the quantico/NoVa/Fredberg area, but there are a few, and you can also consider a fire extinguisher company also.

In most cases it's about 15-20 bucks - some are on site, some have to send them out. If you can get your reg off with ease, then this may be the best option. Some of them charge a reg removal fee of 5-10bucks - find that out in advance.

If your reg is loctited, or possibly loctited in, I would strongly suggest you send it to crossfire. I did a few tanks locally, and they chewed the hellout of them, and busted two of them taking the regs off without consideration to the loctite. they sheared the threads off of one, and busted teh stem off in another, rendering both bottles useless. Most cases, it's a buyer beware if we break it, you're screwed situation.

Damn. that's messed up. I am sure that it's probably loctited. So I will try to get it to crossfire. Will contact them. Thanks for the information.

I know this is an OLD thread, but for anyone in the NoVA area that needs Hydro in 2016, Fireline will do it (out by Dulles Int'l. airport).

I called them and the person who answered the phone said they will test paintball tanks for $41 - and when I mentioned that the price seemed a bit expensive (she then sounded unsure) she said maybe around $35 and I did not press the issue on the phone. So not sure about an exact price, but she said the turnaround depends how busy they are, normally about a week. It seemed like the size of the tank drives the price, because she asked how big the task is, so if you go in for a PB tank you may be able to negotiate a price closer to the 30-35 - I think they mostly test fire extinguishers and those are larger tanks so that may be why she asked (I have never been there or used them, but may need to in the next few months).

Do they test (if yes, on site, or ship elsewhere)? If so how much and what's the turnaround?

They don't do it onsite. However, they will take the tanks apart. So you may pay a little more( I don't know), and I don't know what the turnaround time is( just call them) BUT you have to take your reg off if you take it to fire line. I destroyed 2 tanks trying to get the regs off. But I had numerous other thanks that I had fireline do. But even then I usually had to wait a week for them to do it. But I also haven't played in 3 years and I don't work next door to that place anymore.

Pevs sends them out to have them tested. It's right around $30-35 and they take your regs off at the store before sending so the inspecting company doesn't screw them up.

My above post (from 6 years ago) should probably be amended. I'd highly recommend AGAINST sending tanks to Crossfire anymore. They've had new people step in and their service leaves a lot to be desired.

Go to your local fire station and ask where they get their scba tanks hydro, I get mine done by air-care in Gloucester.

Have you ever used dive quarters for a PB tank hydro? I'm trying to get back into playing and I know my tanks are out of hydro for sure. I'm trying to find a reliable place in the Hampton Roads area to get this done.

For anyone close to Frederick, MD (not too far of a drive from NoVA), Brass Anchor does HPAs for $25 and Scuba tanks for $30. They test on Tuesdays or Thursdays, so turn around isn't bad. No charge for reg removal. About to drop some tanks off there this week.
