Important Notice:

Cylinders that may during normal use lose all gas pressure above ambient when under water, such as side-mount, bail-out, marker buoy, buoyancy compensator and suit inflation cylinders are at a greater risk of water ingress and internal corrosion when empty. If fresh water is present in a cylinder this can mean the loss of more than 2 mm of the thickness of the cylinder wall within 6 months. This is increased to more than 5 mm in the presence of salt water. (Diving cylinder walls are generally between 2 and 5 mm thick). While testing of diving cylinder remains at 2.5 years for an internal visual amd 5 years for full hydrostatic test in the UK, a more frequent visual inspection by a certified test centre for suit inflation cylinders is recommended).

Recommended practice includes:

  • Never allowing suit inflation cylinder to fully empty underwater
  • Storing cylinders with at least 2 bar of pressure in them
  • Keeping/transporting any empty cylinder with valve closed
  • Drying and capping valves when regulator is not attached
