Mostly they check for cracks, or damage that could cause a rupture of the tank. Just had a propane tank for a forklift certified, $15 at a propane place (they made us sand it down and repaint it, before they would stamp it). My 5 and 10 lbs co2 tanks get re-certified for free from the place I bought them from, as long as I keep their sticker on the tanks. Otherwise I think they said $20 to certify.COOL DEAL!!!
I am a BIG DIYer myself, so I am Subscribed! It is great to reuse parts, isn't it. Nothing better than free!!! Man, I didn't realize that retesting a tank is so high! I wonder what is involved in retesting a CO2 tank?
Anyway Welcome, and I can't wait to see what Ya do next!
Anyone have anything to add on this topic?Looking for some advice on a water pump. I plan on using it externally so it will need inlet/outlet fittings. Hoping to get something between 150-200gph. My original thought was a danner magdrive 2, but I wanted to seek advice from the forum first. I will be pushing through a cerges style reactor with filter floss in it for the biological bacteria. I don't want to spend a bunch of money but I'm not cheap either. I would gladly drop extra coins if quality and function warrant it.
+1I wouldn't confuse "lack of responses" with "lack of interest." Just a thought.
