Hydrostatic testing is done to check the tank body integrity not the valves.

I have 100 pound tanks that date from the mid fifties and have never had seal degradation occur in any.

I have propane, argon, acetylene, Co2, C25, oxygen, MAPP, helium and nitrogen tanks tested when needed, take them right to the test facility.

Inert gas tanks have a longer time between inspection compared to oxidizers.
