Dive bottle

Recommended Posts

I got a second hand dive bottle at the weekend I was just wondering when the test date runs out can it be retested or do I have to get rid of it? 

The test date is November this year.

It can be retested if you take it along to a dive centre they can usually arrange. Not cheap but required if you are going to have it filled commercially.

I get mine retested but only when it's down on pressure even if it's way past it's test date.

OK that's fine thank you I take it to a dive centre to get it filled so I'm sure they would be able to re test it 👍

Have they never said anything with it being past its test date?

No they have never mentioned it I just tell them it's for my air rifle.

I am staggered I don’t know of any that would behave that way as it’s a health and safety matter. You are dealing with a potential bomb if it burst under pressure of refilling.

It does get tested before refilling I'm sorry if I didn't make that clear.

I took a bottle that was past its first test date by a couple of years, it failed test with stretched threads where the valve screwed in (they showed me this using the thread gauges) the only feedback was that if I had taken in on time, I may have been able to get a warranty contribution from the bottle supplier, I will get my new bottle tested on time.
