Out of test Dive Bottle
Posted 15 June 2011 - 08:19 PM
Hopefully a simple one - I'm thinking of selling my air rifle kit (it just doesn't get used anymore!) and part of what I would look to offload is my dive bottle which is currently out of test.
- Can I sell an out of test dive bottle?? or must it be in test to be passed on???
Cheers all - hopefully its not too daft a question, I'm just not sure if there's any legislation on selling these.

If a bottle is out of test, no shop will fill it, due to the risk of the bottle exploding if there is a weakness or flaw in the bottle.

It is not illegal to sell an out of test cylinder, but its value will be deminished to that of scrap value as the cost of re test and risk of failure, cost of test etc. will rest on the purchacer.
It is illegal to fill an out of test cylinder.
Filling plant operators have been killed when internally corroded / out of test cylinders have been filled.
I would suggest that you have your cylinder tested and certified prior to sale.

You'd get considerably more than your costs over and above an untested cylinder, for a cylinder with a full test on it.
