They got a 15 year lifespan on tanks, and need rehydro every 5 years. The pure energy expires in 2016. the carleton expires in 2011.

You can get both hydroed, and be good to go. It's a fair price.

iirc a tank is good for 15 yrs so 3 hydro dates, so looks like a decent find as long as they pass the test

The pure energy life span expires in 2016 assuming it is current on hydro. The carleton hydro expires in 2011, but lifespan is until 2021.

YES. they need to be hydroed every 5 years from their DOT date. Otherwise they are unusable , and no one will fill them

crossfire is great for hydro testing. I think it's like 25 bucks including reg removal and everything, and in the off chance they fail I don't believe they charge you at all?

what I am saying is I am still able to get them tested and use them again once they get inspected.

I mean since they have been out of date so long will it affect getting them hydro'd?

The Carleton is every <b>3</b> years as stated on the tank at the bottom. so you got five tests with that one.
