CYLINDER TESTING Servicing & Repairs

Equipment requirements:

Below is a table that shows how often your Dive Cylinder or Surface Cylinder should be serviced.
However, it is suggested that if your equipment has been in storage, not used for a while or you have purchased second-hand equipment, it is recommended that you get the serviced before use to ensure they are in good working condition and are safe to use.
Also, if your cylinder has been left with no air in it at all, it is a high recommendation that it is checked over before use, to ensure that moisture, dust, and other contaminants has not entered the cylinder.

  Why Get Them Serviced? How Often Should I Get Them Serviced?
Cylinders
Your cylinder may be looked after and look fine on the out side, but sometimes unseen damage and contaminants can build up inside.
Sometimes the cylinder valves can collect debris over time, this can, in turn, damage your gun if used for air rifles, or your regulators if used for diving.
