Regular servicing of your Air Delivery & Buoyancy Systems by a qualified professional is essential.
It is a legal requirement to have your Scuba Cylinder either hydrostatically pressure tested or visually inspected every year.
To check if it is in date find the most recent date stamped on the top of the cylinder.
2) Find the most current date “Stamped” into the top of the cylinder. If you bring your cylinder to Adventures in Scuba for a Visual Inspection or Hydrostatic Test, and want to dive right away, we will lend you a cylinder from our rental fleet of over 100 cylinders to use until yours is ready for pickup.
If this date is more than five years old then the cylinder needs a hydrostatic test. Visual inspection, is required annually, it’s your best insurance against corrosion, cracking and premature demise of your tank.
this is done every year and is due 12 months after the stamped Hydrostatic test date and is marked using a plastic tag (pictures 4&5).
