Rating: very satisfied
Reviewer: Ruben F.
i am very happy with this product. i bought it for my wife to use instead of renting tanks all the time. i figured after about 10 rentals she could have bought her own tank so why not get her her own tank before the money for rental is gone and and save her some money.

  • aaron:

    Hello, Can I refill a compressed air cylinder (for paintball) with this tank?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Aaron, yes if you have the adapter to connect from the tank to your paintball gun.

  • Glenn:

    The scuba tanks are shipped empty, correct? By that I mean they are not filled with oxygen requiring HAZMAT handling?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Scuba tanks should never be filled with Oxygen for any reason. But that being said, they are shipped without the valve installed and empty to comply with DOT regulations on shipping and transit of the cylinders.
