re hydro question

how much should a re hydro cost? and where would be a good place to go for cheap because a local area said 55 for a rehydro.

I get them done for $15 locally. I would search for any fire extinguisher shops around your area. They do all my rehydros.

American Paintball Tank Hydrotest Service HydroLab does a $17.95 test but any additional service is extra (see form for prices)

Crossfire, Inc. is running a $25 (normally $30 - see form with coupon) all inclusive test/service ($0 reg removal, $0 visual inspection, $0 thread cleaning, $0 reg reinstall, & $0 if the tank fails, and...if they snap the reg off and cannot fix it they will replace it with a similar tank).

These guys supposedly charge $20 + return shipping:

Anytime you are not paying postage out and back you will generally find it is more economical to drop off and pick up yourself. Look for a local dive shop or fire protection service (local yellow pages is a good source for locating them).

Hydro shouldn't be over $25, sounds like the store is trying to rip you off.

$15 This is everything included? They don't charge those crazy hidden fees for manual labor to inspect the threads or to unscrew and screw on the regulator back?

What is the turn-around time to send out a tank and getting it back? At least for crossfire?

They say about 3 business days once they get the tank in their hands. I really suggest looking for somewhere local to take your tank to avoid the shipping both ways, it can really add up. I've heard it's a good idea to call your local fire department and ask where they get theirs hydro'd.
