Are these the tank's birth dates?



What is the total life span of a cf tank? 10 or 15?

Yes you have to get them hydro tested every 5 years and they both need to be hydro tested before you can use them.

It's been a while, but the last time I knew, 3k tanks had a 10 year lifespan, and a 3 year retest window. The tank on the right in that picture is a 3k.
Has that changed? I just got back into paintball after a long break.

For that 3000 psi tank, it is actually a little of both ^^^^. Good spotting vantrepes, that 3000 psi wrap tank is indeed a 3-year hydro cycle, NOT a 5 year as previously indicated. However, the lifespan of that tank is 15 years.

Page 3; Section 7, part b indicates the hydrostatic testing to be conducted every 3 years.
Same page; Section. 7, part c indicates the lifespan:
