... i've been consistent with one shop that uses only two boats since I had my tank tumbled last year. They had recently inspected all their rentals and came up clean.
The only possibillity would be I'd sucked my tank dry on a last dive and neglected to fill the tank for a good period of time. But that's something I don't generally do. I'm usually doing my thrid or fourth dive shallow and am returning with half a tank.
Sports Chalet was a the only wild card, and I did this one month before having my VIP. I took that fill on a three or four dive boat trip, one month after having the fill.
I then took the tank in for my VIP and there it was, water and nice fresh, brand new rust on my clean cylinder, about as much as could form in a few weeks.
I don't know what to think because I know Sports chalet servs _lots_ of people.
