Paintball Hydro-Testing

Welcome to Paintball Hydro-Testing.  We specialize in the unique needs of the paintball community servicing all brands of paintball tanks and regulators.  We have a Hydro-testing facility in Connecticut and one coming soon in Florida.  We Hydro for both players and offer wholesale hydrotesting to stores and fields.  Our field hydro program has saved numerous fields from scrapping their out of date tanks by offering an inexpensive option to hydro-test them and keep them for another five years.

We have all the information you’d ever need to know about hydro-testing on our blog written by two industry professionals who have been hydro-testing paintball tanks for over 20 years.

We specialize in paintball cylinders but we also test any kind of tank.  We have a few home brewers and SCUBA divers on staff and we service, fill, and hydro test those all the time.  We are happy to answer any questions you have.

Shipping tanks to us

Shipping us tanks for hydro testing is easy.  Make sure your tanks are empty before packaging.  The ideal size box for most tanks is 12x5x5.  If you have a thread saver it’s a great idea to use it in transit. Please ship the empty tank and include your name, address, phone number, and email address.  We’ll use your email address to send an invoice via secure server for payment when we are done.  If we don’t get a response from the invoice due to a typo in the email address, we’ll text you on the phone number you provide.  

We also sell a Hydro Testing pack.  The pack includes a box to put the tank in, thread cap, packing materials, a prepaid return label to us, and shipping of the tested tank back to you for $54.99.  No hunting for the right size box or paying a shipping service extra money to pack and ship it for you.  If your comfortable with shipping, just make sure the tank is completely empty and send it to us with your name, address, phone number, and email address.  We’ll email you a total that you can pay online through our secure checkout.

We will remove your regulator and reinstall the regulator to ASTM or your specific manufacturers recommended specifications at no additional charge. Please don’t try to remove or install a regulator at home, it takes specialized tools and knowledge.
