    Officially they are no longer certified , hence they should be taken out of service.
    Note that I said officially.

    The bottles are probably fine and made by the same manufacturer as those for scott or MSA.

    Somewhere between genius and insanity!


    I wouldn't use the bottles for scba ops... but save them to power air tools, inflate boats, tires, etc.

    When they reach the end of their service life, scrap them.
