Default 20 Yr Old Scuba Tank Found

A blue, 80 cubic foot scuba tank was found on the western shore of Lake Winnipesaukee in the Spring of 2015. It had a yellow, plastic netting around it. It had a 1995 Dive Winnipesaukee sticker on it and I think the tank was manufactured in 1995 (I will double-check that fact). It was banged up a little but the valve worked and it had 1700 psi in it.

Just curious if any forum reader might have any knowledge of this tank.

How the breathability? Can it still be used for underwater breathing after 20-years?

Default The Tank Was Condemned

The tank was manufactured in 1995. The bottom of the tank had about a 1 inch square chip in it and the Dive Winnipesaukee tank inspector immediately condemned the tank. It basically became scrap metal.
