Scuba Diving Cylinder Visual Inspection
A scuba diving cylinder requires a Hydrostatic Test every 5 years with a Visual Test at a 2.5 year interval. If the Visual Inspection is missed a Hydrostatic Test is required. As part of the Visual Inspection, your valve will be serviced and the threads on the neck of the cylinder and the valve will be checked with calibrated thread gauges.
Servicing Your Scuba Cylinder
Scuba Leeds can test all brands of steel and aluminium scuba cylinders at our off-site IDEST Test Facility. Our service technician turns cylinders in a seven to a ten-day period which resets every Friday. Your cylinder's structural integrity will be evaluated and tested at this time. If your cylinder or valve fails inspection or testing we are required by law to render the item unserviceable. This will either be by crushing, burning a hole in the shoulder, or cutting through the neck thread of the cylinder or valve.
ALL Cylinder Visual Inspections will have an air fill cost added to the Service Booking when your cylinder is checked in. Air fills are £5 for 232 bar single cylinders and £7.50 for 300 bar cylinders.
Oxygen Cleaning is available but is NOT included in this price, however, this can be arranged during your booking in process.
If your cylinder requires Shot Blasting to clear internal corrosion, this is only identifiable once our service technician removes the valve. If this is required, the technician will advise you as soon as possible.
We offer a full Cylinder Testing Services all completed by our IDEST Technician.
