Creative Ideas for a Failed Scuba Tank

Scuba tanks eventually wear out, which is why it is important to follow the regulations on getting your tank tested.  You wouldn’t want to be diving with a tank that was compromised in any way due to dents, rust, or cracks.  Here at Dive HQ Christchurch, on the occasion that a tank fails a Hydro or Visual test, our customers often leave the tanks with us and we make sure they are disposed of.  Then there are some customers who find a creative way to use their tank.  Being a strong heavy material makes them perfect for some of the following ideas…
