tank questions

i accidently got some water on my air tank, i have a carbon fiber wrapped tank and i was just wondering if it would be ok. also i have this little bump on my tank which hasnt really been a problem, i have had my tank filled up quite a lot of times and its been find but i was just wondering if i should have it looked at. i have a pure energy tank if that helps

Get it checked out, it could blow up, you never know. What is the rehydro test date?

If it has a bump you need to get it inspected, that will be the weak point to cause a fail. Do not put pressure in it. They usually burst out the side and the top and bottom become seperate pieces.

the water is fine, but feinitely get the tank checked out, you never know, we had a tank blow up at the field one day, luckily the gun was just on the table, and nobody was too close for the shrapnel. ive also had a rental blow up in my hands but my hands were away from the areas that blew up, it was a spyder (i forgot what kind, i think one of the older xtras) and it just made a huge noise and completely fell apart. Nobody knew what happened with it, it was louder than my 12 ga. though, thats for sure.
But yea, just get it checked out.

The water on the tank shouldnt affect it at all. Get the bump checked out though, especially if you notice it growing after each fill.

Sinister, if what you have just said has already been said, you don't need to say it again...

ok ive got my tank fillled roughly 5-6 times and i dont think the bump is getting any bigger, but you can tell its there because the whole tank is a grey/white colour and the bump is sort of brown, i think the rehydro date is 2009 or 2010 im not sure, it says 2005/2006 and then theres these arrows putting upwards then it says 10 so it might be 2010. after looking at the tank again the brown bit is not very noticable and when you rub your finger over the bump its only a very slight bump
