View Full Version : Selling tanks / Hydro Tested

12-24-2008, 01:54 AM
Im wanting to sell a few of my Co2 tanks since I dont need 12 of them when I can only use one at a time. I would only keep enough for my marker, wife's & a few rentals.

The only real problem with this is most of the tanks are out of hydro. And I dont want to sell one & something happen and have to live with the fact I sold a tank that possibly hurt someone.

My idea was send all them off the get hydro'd & sell off what I dont need/want. Then sell the tanks at the cost of hydro.

My question is, would you buy a tank that is used, just hydro'd & pics of the valve to show its condition at the price of the hydro?

i wouldnt have anything against a freshly hydro'd tank, but not many people check b/s/t for co2 tanks. i dont see any of my tanks getting hydro'd though since it would be cheaper to just buy a new tank.

I'd buy an HPA tank, but not a CO2 tank. I'd probably just give them to some one you know, and tell them that they are out of hydro

what is the rule about small tanks not needing hydrotesting?
