Got a question on scuba equipment? Well search for your answer here. Can't find an answer. Well then, ask away.

Just what are we prepared to discuss here. Well anything related to scuba diving gear and equipement. Still unsure? Well how about this list of ideas:

Buoyancy Compensators (BCs) and Weight Systems - Point your weighty "BC" questions and input here. Tell others what you use and what you do and don't like about it etc...

Regulators - What Brand? Which one? What type? Why?

Computers, Gauges, Watches and Analysers - Looking for a computer? Don't feel like trusting "Paid Advert" style reviews? Feel free to ask your questions and also, tell us what you use.

Exposure Suits - Custom or off the rack? Wet or Dry? Skins! Feel free to tell us what are you using and why. Or if you're unsure as to what you should be using for your situation, then just ask here.

Tanks, Valves and Bands - Big tanks, small tanks, steel tanks, aluminum tanks, pony bottles. Find out which one is right for you.

Fins, Masks & Snorkels - The inside scoop on this basic gear.

Accessories - This is the place to get the scoop on all those nifty gadgets, gizmos and accessories that go along with diving.

Rebreathers - Find out everything you ever wanted to know about rebreathers. Oh, you don't want to know anything about them! Well that's okay too.

Do It Yourself - Think you're pretty handy at building things? Then share it with us here. Or just check out tips and instructions from others for DIY Scuba stuff.

Vintage Gear - If you've got it, or even still using it, we'd be interested in hearing about it.

old dive tanks

i have just pulled three scuba tanks out of storage.
two were last checked in 1994 and one was last checked in 1996. Are they still of any use/value, or should they be disposed of?
