So my little rehydro date on my tank has rubbed off, is there any imprint on the tank itself for rehydro or should I just rehydro for safety? I should have until April, bought the tank a little over 2 years ago.

April till it FORSURE runs out of hydro? Or till you can play again?

And if it was bought new two years ago, don't hydro it.

How did the hydro date rub off? If it's a steelie it should be stamped and on a CF tank it's supposed to be in varnish. Do you have a pic? Chances are without a visible hydro date the field/shop will refuse to fill it.

Yes it's a steelie. There's a big painting of when it was bought and when it should be re-hydroed. Since then the painting has rubbed off, what I'm asking is if there's a stamp on the tank that should tell me the re-hydro date. So I'll assume there is?

The tank is stamped around the neck with the date. Its fine.

I never get wipers, blood is hard to wipe off.

I like autocockers and autococker accessories.
