Hydro Test your Paintball Tanks

Another year has gone by and your paintball gears are getting old - especially compressed air bottles. You can always buy a new one (So many sales towards year end) or you can send it for hydro testing; and for small fee your bottle can last another for another 3 - 5 years. You can save alot by doing this. But before that, why do we need to hydro testing our tanks?

Hydro testing is a very important process for your paintball air tanks and should be done every 3-5 years. Hydro testing is so important because it ensures that you’re paintball air tanks are structurally sound and safe to be filled. How the testing works is a little complicated, but here’s the process in a nutshell:
  • The paintball bottle is separated from it’s regulator.
  • Every inch of the bottle, inside and out is inspected for decay, rust, cracks, etc.
  • Typically, the bottle is then lowered into a vat of water/the hydro testing machine.
  • Water is pumped into the bottle, increasing the PSI.
  • If the amount of displaced water in cubic centimeters, exceeds the REE number (on the bottle’s DOT label), then the bottle fails the hydro test and is unfit for further use.


So now that seems like a good idea where do we go to do it here in Malaysia? I've recently stumbled again to this website and thought I could help highlight this. The blog is run by Aziddin "KakiMusha" Jamil and he seems to be able to handle the job properly. Give him a visit :)

Battle of January - MPOC vs MY-NPL

Referring to this post and this post, both parties have already waged 'wars' on each others. Both promoters are now aggressively attracting teams to their first event of 2011 with MPOC throwing free entries to WCA 2010 participated teams while Asia Cup & MY-NPL promised to deliver a better yet well organized international standard tournament for everyone! How that can even top up the recent World Cup Asia 2010, only time will tell.

With competition getting fierce on who has the most share of 'the pie', this could turn out to be good for the players. More choices and options to start their year. Let the fight begin.

In The News - First female paintball referees

SARAWAKIANS Angie Ng and Kamalia Kamarudin were recognised as trailblazers when they were selected to be officials at paintball’s World Cup Asia 2010 this Friday (26-28 Nov 2010).

Held annually in Kuala Lumpur, the event is one of three internationally-organised World Cup tournaments in the world of paintball. The other two are the World Cup – Orlando (USA) and World Cup – Paris (Europe).

World Cup Asia has attracted teams not only from the Asian region but from Europe and the Pacific as wel.

Ng and Kamalia will be among the first few women to referee paintball sports leagues. Both from Kuching, they will take Sarawak down in the annals of sports history for being the first female officials.

Proud officials: Kamalia (right) and Ng posing with the male marshalls selected for the World Cup Asia 2010 to be held in Kuala Lumpur on Friday.

When dealing with the behaviour of players, which could range from abusive language to the obligatory pat on the back after a favourable call, Ng and Kamalia are no shrinking violets.

“Confrontation is part of being a referee,” they said.

“If the players cross a line they’re not supposed to, then they’ll receive a technical foul – like any player would.

“The biggest challenge will not only be officiating the games, but earning the respect of the players, coaches and fans.

“Rookies, so to speak, have to earn their respect, and that’s what we are going to have to do. We’re up to the challenge.”

For them, it’s just all part of the game.

Ng added: “Playing paintball requires so much mental focus that we don’t think a lot of the players realise a woman is on the field.

“They don’t pay attention to who’s making the calls. They’re only concentrating on whether they get the call right. And that’s how it should be. It should only be about working hard to do the job properly.”
