    Got the LP72's yesterday. Both tanks have 3/4-14 threads, old Dacor models ('77 manufacture) made by PST, 2071+ psi rated.

    Checked on tank bads. 90 bucks from OMS for the bands!! The manifold (isolation type), is about 300 from OMS. That I expected, tanks bands though, that was a shock.

    I here that a company called Oceanco has a BCD that can accomadate two tanks without a back plate, bands, or anything. I guess if its time for a new BCD anyway it might be worth checking out.

    I was shocked when I found out how much bands were as well. You might want to consider a manifold from Sea Elite. The Halcyon manifold looks just like a Sea Elite manifold with sherwood rubber hand wheels and costs about $169.00 from

    That might make the tank bands hurt less!
