    Just found out there is a D.O.T. program by which the 15 year life of carbon fiber tanks can be extended (maybe). Waiting for response from the company licensed to do said extensions. If it turns out to be viable & CHEAPER than buying a new tank I'll be a happy air gunner. Anyone else know about this?

    There was just a discussion on this partially buried in diff thread. I just can't find it. I remember something about their permit being in limbo while a true 30yr life is discussed. Even if I'm wrong, the fee Digital Wave fee advertised to the public (especially after shipping them the tank) didn't seem to make economic sense for the individual. Maybe that's diff now, It's been a while since I looked the info up. 

    Just something to think aboiut.

    And before you buy one, you better check with your fill supplier on filling policy. Our local dive shop won’t refill one.
