General Information

No need to click through multiple pages.  All of the important need to know information is right here at your finger tips!

  • We do not have a partial fill or "top-off" ticket.
    • Due to the number of fills we do each day we can not put a pressure gauge on each tank before we put it on the whip to see the amount of air that is in each tank. Once on the whip, the main gauge only shows the tank with the lowest pressure, not the pressure of each individual tank.
  • We do not fill empty tanks. Please take your tank to your local dive shop for its first fill before bringing it to Dutch Springs.
    • Dutch Springs will not fill empty (0 psi) tanks even if they are brand new. When a tank is left without any pressure of air, deterioration of the inner core of the tank may occur. The presence and amount of deterioration can be seen when inspected by a certified tank inspector. Dutch Springs does not employ a tank inspector and therefore can not visually inspect a tank. The tank will need to be taken to a dive shop to be visually inspected before filling.
  • Remain behind the yellow line located on the concrete in front of the air fill station for your safety.
    • If a burst disc blows a flailing tank can cause considerable damage and broken bones. If a tank bursts even more damage can occur. We appreciate your efforts in trying to carry the tanks into the fill station for us so we don't have to work so hard, but save your energy for diving!
  • Tanks will only be filled to the pressure stamped on the tank.
    • Tanks will not be under or overfilled.
  • Purchase air fill tickets from the cashiers at the admission office only. If any Dutch Springs staff member approaches you to purchase air fills at a reduced price please notify Kevin, Andrea or Stu immediately.
    • If you purchase contraband air fill tickets, you and the seller will be prosecuted.
  • Please give your ticket to the air fill attendant when you pick up your tank, not when you drop it off so there is no confusion.
    • Our minds are not like they used to be! We want to make sure we do not forget if a ticket has been taken! The only way we can do that is to take the ticket at the end of the fill and NOT when dropping off the tank. This may sound silly-especially if you are the only one there-but if we get called away we want to make sure you don’t give us two tickets for one fill or no ticket for a fill!
  • Please make sure you get the amount of air you paid for. Please check the pressure in your tank before you leave the air fill station area. 
    • Mistakes do happen. If you did not bring your own pressure gauge, please ask the air fill attendant to use the one in located in the air fill station. If it is not filled to the correct stamped the tank will be topped off right away at no additional cost. If you take the tank away for the air fill station and then test it or let us know after the dive, we will not fill it for free.
  • All air compressors are tested quarterly by TRI Analytics and Trace Analytical.
    • All air is Grade E/Oxygen Compatible. Please go to the admissions office if you would like to see the certificates. Each compressor’s compliance certificate is framed and on display in the admissions office on the wall under the clock.
  • TIPPING AIR FILL ATTENDENTS IS NOT PERMITTED
    • but thanking them for good fill is always welcome. If you do not get the fill you deserve, please alert the air fill attendant or management immediately.
  • OSHA requires safety glasses to be worn anytime anyone is within 10 ft of the air fill station.
    • Therefore, anytime you walk past the yellow line safety glasses must be worn. All attendants must wear safety glasses at all times as well. Extra safety glasses are available in the air fill station. If you do need to come into the air fill station to analyze a tank please ask for a pair if the attendant does not hand them to you!
  • Please present your NITROX card to the attendant when you bring your NITROX marked tanks to be filled.
    • The only time a NITROX card is not needed to be presented is if you are filling a tank that previously had regular air (21%). Before the NITROX marked tank will be filled with air, analyzation of the tank for verification of 21% oxygen is required.
    • If the tank has an oxygen level of 22% or more, a NITROX card must be presented before filling the tank with either air or NITROX. The tank must be analyzed, maximum depths must be determined and the NITROX logbook must be completely filled out.
  • If you are leaving tanks at the air fill station overnight please ask for a claim ticket so your tank can be properly identified.
    • If you are not staying at the fill station while your tank is being filled, please also ask the attendant for a claim ticket. This is especially important when students/people are picking up tanks that they don't own. Many "lost tanks" have been found around the property because of incorrectly picking up another person's tank instead of their own!
  • If a Dive Shop or Instructor is paying for a group of air fills, the instructor must go to front office to set up a bill and get tickets for any fills they will be paying for. 
    • The instructor setting up the bill can hand out the printed tickets to anyone for use.
    • Any unused tickets presented to the admissions cashier at the end of the weekend will be taken off of the bill before payment.
    • Instructors are responsible for all lost or stolen tickets not returned to the admissions office before bill payment.
    • Bills must be paid by the end of the day or weekend.
  • We do not fill tanks in water because of possible condensation developing on the inside of the tank and back problems developed by the attendants. 
    • Our policy is to fill to an additional 10% of the tank pressure so that when the tank cools down the proper pressure is in the tank. We try to fill the tank as slow as possible but during the summer we are not only fighting the quantity of tanks filled in a short time, but the temperature of the air going into the compressors, the heat generated by the compressors and the constant flow of compressed air. All of which causes heat.

      • If someone chooses print at home and it is processed after they step away from the computer they just need to go to the will call window to pick up their ticket.
      • The will call window opens at 7:15 am on weekends and 10:00 am on weekdays.
