Simple noob question

I'll just put it simply. How many times can I get my tank rehydroed?

Two times after birth I believe.

If you have a five year hydro at birth, next hydro gets you five years from that date, then the same again. So if you hydro every five years a tank can last a tops of 15. If you have a newborn tank, hydro in two years then you have five years from the new stamped date, then one more hydro, meaning you have effectively lost three years of potential life from the tank.

Make sense?

This is how it was taught to me, if I am wrong somebody please school me but I believe it is correct.

You can rehydro it as many times as you would like. But the requirement is every 3/5 years(depending on DOT).
But a tank is only good for 15 years from manufacture date.

The first part of this actually isn't true. The DOT permit regulations specifically state the allowed number of times a cylinder can be retested. The reason being that the test includes filling the cylinder to a 5/3 of max rated pressure. This process puts strain on the tank construction so it needs to be limited as much as possible. Just thought I'd pass the info along .

Agree with the post above. Also a local paintball shop might be able to source it for you as well locally at a more economical price.

No. The tanks go through a standard DOT test and are good until their full 15-year life span; assuming they pass the proper hydrostatic testing when required.
Tanks are all pretty much standard. Until Crossfire started making their own there were only about 3-5 paintball cylinder manufacturers in the world. Now there is one less unfortunately.

Depending on the size of tank. Anything above 1 litre (61 cubic inches) still requires 3 or 5 year re-hydro tests.
