Default Question about air?

Have not been diving in 6 years but have 2 tanks with air in them would they be OK to do some hull cleaning on the boat? Just wondering if air goes bad.

Default RE: Question about air?

I wouldn't use 6 year old air. The air that goes into a scuba cylinder is hyper filtered and is very clean and dry, but any contaminants or corrosion in the cylinder can a negative effect on the air quality over a long period of time.

As cheap as it is to fill a tank, why take any chances? Get them scoped and have them filled.
