This convinces me to have a little fun today and take my whole DIVING LUNG rig into the LDS for an "Oxygen Fill". I can't wait to see the look I get.
I have heard similar stories before.ScubaLawyer wrote: ↑Thu Oct 18, 2018 11:45 amOk, need to solicit opinions to settle another argument between me and my good-for-nothing piece of crap local dive shop (solely my opinion of course). As I have mentioned before I will stop in for an air fill on occasion just because it is close and I don't feel like driving an hour to my friend's dive shop. (And, yes, thank you to everyone who has been giving me leads on compressors - unfortunately it just isn't practical for me at the moment).
Anyway, I stop in for a fill yesterday:
SHOP: Can't fill this tank, hydro expires this month.
ME: That's right, it is stamped 10/2013. It is good though the end of the month.
SHOP: No, since there is no day stamped we don't know if it was hydroed on Oct. 1 or Oct. 30. The 5 years could have already expired.
ME: F#%* you.
First I've ever heard of this position. I was always under the impression the hydro was good until the end of the month stamped.
Who is correct here, wonderful all knowing me or the Neanderthal/Cro-Magnum hybrid troglodyte at the dive shop?
I went, loaded with mischief, toting my rig and a mental script of witty repartee. Imagine my disappointment when I arrived there and found a hastily worded note taped to the door: "closed for the afternoon" (true story)
