I would like to know what is going to happen when I take my tank in. Having one store treat the issue one way, the another do a 180 degree turn is very confusing. It shouldn't be this confusing and clouded by rumors, superstitions, guess work and what if's . It should be pretty straight forward.

The initial reaction at Sport Chalet was that ALL (yes, they were just about yelling) tanks ever used for Nitrox had to be Oxygen clean. Clearly, that isn't the case. These are my tanks, I carry them around on my back. Taking care of them boils down to my personal responsibility. Short of getting certified to do my own visuals and blending my own nitrox, in my own garage I'd like to know what the real deal is.
