Here goes...
I just bought 3 used LP108 steel tanks older but all in Hydro from last year and current VIS 2 have very new pro valves all are air paid $450. Thinking about seeing if my LDS will take the oldest one in trade for O2 clean and vis on the 2 with new pro valves ( I think they will). The way I am looking at it is the trade works I at least get 2 nitrox tanks for 4 years use at least if they happen to fail the next hydro. Oh and my LDS will fill over them to 3000.

3 LP 108's with current Hydro for $450 is a good deal!
+1. You did fine, and cave divers love them.

I wouldn’t trade one

... if they happen to fail the next hydro.
LP108's were made by OMS, Worthington & Faber. Each of those brands rarely fails MULTIPLE hydros if you keep the rust under control. My jacked-up Faber LP108's are 25yrs old and still going strong with no hydro problems.

LOL.

I contacted the guy who was selling these tanks shortly after you bought them!

So thanks for saving me money :^)

I need more tanks like I need a hole in the head.

Don't trade one for oxy cleaning and vipping. That shouldn't cost as much as the tank is worth.
