Are DIN valves popular in the States?  Is it possible to get a tank with one
filled to 300 bar there?  Thanks in advance

If you are planning to visit Florida, you will have no problem getting fills as
caving is an adement sport here and 99.999% of the divers use DIN set-ups.

If you are visiting other areas, be more specific and others in the NG will be
glad to give you an insight.

Not very, but that is changing.

Nope.

If the cylinder does not carry U.S. Department of Transportation
markings, you won't get it filled at all.

As far as I know, there are no DOT approved SCUBA cylinders rated to 300
bar.

The NY and NJ area should be no problem since many of the wreck divers use
them.

George - that's not what he asked. He asked if he could get 300 bar
fills.

Do you know any shops that will fill to 300 bar (4350 psi) for someone
"off the street"?

Not a Problem in North Carolina. All The shops on the outer banks fill them.

Another piece of the question is whether the tank is DOT
approved.

Right. I addressed that in another response to the original
inquiry.
