I was just wondering what is considered a safe ambient temperature for storage of my full CO2 tank.
I read that the pressure will be approx 950 psi at 80F and 550 at 40F.
I don't want to have to sacrifice heating my apartment to store the tank. Is it generally safe between 70F and 80F?
PS- I've seen many tanks with a working pressure of 1800psi and tested pressure of 3000psi. Would it be better to invest in a better tank and have a 1500psi disc installed? I thought about using a scuba tank which has a working pressure of 3000psi.
I don't want any surprises occurring in my livingroom!
