I'm still interested, but I need to know if it is still worth it since I'll have to get the tank hydro tested. Just looking for a place in my area that will do the testing and their cost.

Ok, let me know what you find out.

Also, check with some of the locations that fill tanks, maybe one of them would take one that is out of hydro. I know that I have read posts on this forum claiming that some of the places don't care if they are in hydro or not. They will just swap it out for you with no questions asked.

I need to get rid of these asap, so I will drop the price to $30 each regardless of size. Most places around here are charging $30 for the hydro test. I have these listed on Craigslist for more $$$, but I will be lowering that price soon too.

Let me know if you are interested!!!

I have not been able to find a place around me that will do a hydro test. Still looking into whether or not I can find a place to swap tanks.

Kinda coming into this late, so just an FYI. I'm sure you've already looked into this, but just in case:

Places that refill and service fire extinguishers need to hydro test them. Maybe they can test your tanks?

I know of 2 places in Aurora that will do a hydro test. I know it's not exactly local to you being that you are from Joliet, but there really aren't very many places around the Chicagoland area that do them.

Also, to update the thread...I have people coming for a couple of the tanks later today.

So I only have (1) 15 lb tank and (3) 20 lb tanks left. They are starting to go fast!

Sold out. I have a 20 lb tank that is still in hydro that I might sell. If I do, I will make a new thread for it.
