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.

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, and NOT marked appropriately for use in Australia and New Zealand.
