As divers ourselves we know how important your scuba tank is for diving and that you don't want to be without your cylinder for very long. East Coast Scuba & Watersports aims for a quick turn around time. Whether its a yearly visual inspection, tank tumble, oxygen clean, or hydro. Let our highly trained PSI tank inspectors look after your tank.
Scuba Cylinders are required to be visually inspected annually. Our inspectors ensure tanks are thoroughly checked for corrosion/cracks/bulges etc. We offer full reports for all inspections and even offer calibrated eddy current.
Our team is able to tumble your tanks to remove any surface stain or flash rusting. Tumbling is completed on site.
Is your valve functioning correctly? Let us inspections and repair it for you.
Oxygen Cleaning Service
Get your cylinder and valve O2 cleaned to properly prepare for use with enriched air (Nitrox). This is essential for the safety of the diver and the person filling the cylinder.
Hydrostatic inspections are required every five years. The test for each tank is on file at the DOT, and the testing station must contact them to obtain the correct test specification. A common hydrostatic test is to pressurize the scuba tank to 5/3 of its working pressure and to measure the flexing of the tank walls. Five-thirds of a 3,000 psi working pressure means that the tank will be pressurized to 5,000 psi. This is done by replacing the valve with a special hydraulic testing connection and filling the scuba tank with water under pressure – NOT air! Air would be too explosive if the tank were to let go during the test, as it sometimes will. Because water cannot be compressed, the tank cannot explode if it fails. After the initial test, the results are stamped into the body of the scuba tank, along with the date (year and month) it passed.
