SCBA (firefighter bottles) tanks are less common, but not necessarily more expensive. SCUBA tanks would cost less to fill because they are a lower pressure. Most SCBA bottles are 4500 psi, SCUBA tanks are 3000 psi. The size of the SCBA vs. SCUBA is not standard. Some are bigger than others. The hydro cost is the same but typically SCUBA tanks are in much better condition because firefighting is very hard on gear.
