    Some more info!

    Where do you go to get your hydro tests? Address? Phone? Website? What do you like about them? do they do it themselves or just offer the service of someone else?

    You post and I'll put together the list, organized by Island.

    I've got a few tanks that are in need of a hydro test. Anyone know where I can take them to get done other than Da Kine or an lds?

    Thanks,

    Matt

    Talked to them yesterday and was quoted $15/ tank for hydro with a turn around of about a week. They also do VIPs, but I didn't ask cause I have to O2 clean these tanks anyways...

    Re: Hilo Fire - AFAIK they are the only active hydro facility on the Big Island.

    Got a couple of tanks ready to go... sigh.

    Kinda related, I just returned from Oahu Fire Protection services to get 9 tanks hydro'd and found out they will also tumble tanks for $18.50 (they are doing 2 of mine atm) Unfortunately no O2 cleaning ;)

    Aloha, Tim

    Useful information! I wonder if they'll do storage bottles too ... I have 4 444s that are just now out of hydro. Gonna be a pain in the butt to get those things into the back of the 4Runner...
