09-08-2006, 11:09 AM
Alright.. well.. i bought a nitro tank used... and i told a friend to go to the store for me to get it filled v_v;; and he came back to me with an empty tank saying the store clerk wanted 35 dollars to get it "pressurized"....

anyways... i was wondering what is pressurizing.. do you think the guy meant hydrostatic testing? lol... i already asked durell about it and he thought he wanted me to get the tank hydrotested xP

soo... what do you guys think "pressurizing" is... >.>

Ya I'm guessing he wanted to hydrotest it basically meaning making sure that it was still safe to use

most likely cause i was unsure lol... hydrotesting costs 35 dollars there too xP

it sounds like its out of the hydro date. whats it say on the label?

that is about right to get the tank hydro tested.

What is the hydro date on the tank?

If it is still in hydro and does not have any obvious damage it should be ok to fill.
