Current test legislation requires that valves are serviced when cylinders are tested. Any parts replaced during valve servicing are not included in the cost of the service.
Service kits are not available for very old valves and are therefore not serviceable and will need replacing
We reserve the right to render unusable any cylinders or valves that fail tests or servicing
