Hot-dip galvanizing offers excellent durability and corrosion protection for steel scuba tanks. However, the hot-dipped galvanized finish is "industrial grade", with noticeable cosmetic imperfections. While the cosmetics of hot-dip galvanized scuba cylinders in no way impacts their durability or function, your complete satisfaction is our goal so please consider carefully before purchase.

Faber LP-85 Hot Dipped Galvanized Doubles Package
Faber LP-85 Hot Dipped Galvanized Doubles Package
  • A complete back-mount doubles cylinder package
  • Includes Nitrox Ready cylinders and valve
  • Unpainted Hot Dipped Galvanized Finish for durability (Silver)
  • Includes tank boots and valve plugs
  • TWO Nitrox-Ready Faber LP-85 Hot Dipped Galvanized Cylinders
  • Premium Quality Manifold with Isolator
  • Premium Quality Bands and Bolts
  • Left and Right Manifold Port Plugs (not shown)
  • Tank Boots (not shown)

The LP-85's are a popular configuration for smaller stature open water divers. LP-85's are also preferred for their trim characteristics when sidemounting. If you switch between backmount doubles and twin sidemount cylinders with left and right valves, then add Dive Rite Sidemount Travel straps to easily switch to a pair of sidemount singles.

We also include tank boots on the steel LP-85 tanks for use when setup as singles, but boots are not normally installed on doubles sets and therefore not illustrated in our photos. The cylinders each have a current month Nitrox Ready decal and depending on shipping restrictions normally arrive with modular valves and plugs installed, ready-to-use as independent single cylinders and ready-to-assemble as doubles. Assembling a set of doubles is easy if you follow the detailed instructions we provide.

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). We always ship Faber cylinders with a current hydro test date. Due to manufacturing and import cycles, the popular sizes of Faber cylinders typically have a factory hydro date less than 12 months old. However less popular sizes of Faber cylinders may have a factory hydro date up to 24 months old as these are manufactured and imported 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.
