Some experienced divers prefer the trim characteristics of the Aluminum 72 for stage, deco and sidemount applications. Dive Gear Express ships your Nitrox Ready Aluminum 72 cylinder with the valve installed (domestic ground US only). Unless you select no valve, the valve included in our price is a very high quality Thermo PRO DIN/K valve suitable for use with both DIN or Yoke regulator fittings. The cylinders ordered with valves have a current month Nitrox Ready decal.

Our "DGX Complete" Setup Includes:

  • Nitrox Ready Cylinder
  • Nitrox Ready Thermo Pro DIN/K Valve
  • Spare O-ring for Valve Face
  • Valve Protector Cap
  • Current Nitrox Ready Decal

What does "No Valve / No VIP" mean? - If you wish we will sell you a RAW cylinder sent to you with no valve installed and without the visual inspection required for filling the cylinder. We do not suggest this but are willing to oblige if you wish.

How to Select a SCUBA Tank

Our factual but easy-to-read article helps you make this big decision by giving you information on:

  • Aluminum tanks versus steel tanks
  • Low-pressure tanks versus high-pressure tanks
  • Tank paints, coatings, and finishes
  • Tank dimensions and capacity recommendations

Click Here to read How to Select a SCUBA Tank.

SCUBA Tanks must be hydrostatically tested every five years (60 months). The larger primary cylinders typically have a factory hydro date between 3 and 9 months old, but not more than 12 months old. Smaller cylinders may have a factory hydro date up to 24 months old as these are manufactured less frequently.

Our cylinders and valves are Imperial 3/4 NPS neck threads, NOT Metric M25 neck threads, and the valves have overpressure relief devices. The cylinders have US DOT and Canadian CTC markings suitable for use ONLY in North America. Our cylinders and valves are NOT CE approved and NOT suitable for use in the European Union, and NOT marked appropriately for use in Australia and New Zealand.
