Blue Steel Faber FX High Pressure 80 Galvanized Scuba Tank FAQ

Can I use Nitrox in my steel tank?

Yes. The Blue Steel Faber FX High Pressure 80 Galvanized Scuba Tank is ready for Nitrox mixes up to 40%.

How does the tank’s negative buoyancy help me?

Because the steel tank weighs more than the aluminum one, it allows you to dive with less weight.

Is the Steel 80 really better for smaller people?

Yes. It’s shorter so when you don your BC with this tank on it, you’re not constantly hitting the back of your legs on the tank or banging your head on the connector. 

Because it’s steel, it’s rust-proof, right?

No. It is resistant to rust and with the finish, you’ve got extra protection. However, you want to remove the boot and rinse your tanks after every dive with fresh water to extend their lives.
