Ensure the scuba diving tank that you acquire fits your frame and for the kind of diving that you are setting out to do. Diving tanks are either made of aluminum or steel. The less costly of the two options would be the steel type. Even though it is less expensive, that does not make it less useful. Steel tanks are good for approximately 30 years or more than that. it is always up to the client to for the one that matches his/her financial capacity. While aluminum is softer compared to steel , so it would most probably suffer damages earlier than the steel counterpart.
