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…
Tank Lamps or Candle Holders. They make a great lamp shade, or base, especially if you engrave the tank.
If you are feeling really inspired, you may even wish to make a Tank Cannon!
If you have any other creative ideas for a failed scuba tank, the team at Dive HQ Christchurch would love to hear about them.
