As an FYI dive cylinders should be serviced every couple of years. They check the inside for corrosion. Due to the massive pressure in them I would recommend it

Whisper, there will be around 3000psi in that cylinder - be careful!

I'm using SCUBA cylinders to fill my SIB, so feel free to PM me if I can help.
