One of our instructor is test diving the 85 cuft. tank, we'll let you know. They have a 15 year life and have to be hydro tested every 3 years. There is no 10% rating so the tank's working pressure is 4350 through out the life of the tank. When the tank is full it weights 3LBS less than a standard 80 cuft. tank. Prices can be found on the website, under tanks that use DIN valves.

So far so good, the only problem is getting the tank back from the other instructor so I can try it myself. I'll keep you posted.
