How much does your local shop charge for service?

1. Tanks visual and hydro.
2. Yearly Reg service.
3. Yearly BCD service.

I need to take my gear in and i really think a few of the local shops are trying to rake me over the coals.

1a. VIP = $15 (does not include fill) I got certified through PSI to do my own VIP.
1b. Hydro = $39 (I may go directly to the Hydrostatic test facility they charge ~ $15)\
1c. Fill = Nitrox Sport Premix (21, 32, 36, 40 %) 10 cents per cubic foot (7 cents per foot with fill card)

2. Reg Service = $45 per stage (way too expensive! 1st stage + Primary 2nd stage + Alternate 2nd stage = $135!) Scuba Toys has the best reg service pricing. That is where I send mine.

3. BC service = $15 (I feel confident that I can do my own BC service. I have never taken any bc in for service.)

VIP with fill: $20
Regs: ST will do mine. Way cheaper than local
Hydro: Local Hydro Place charges $20 with a 2 or 3 day turnaround. Think it's twice that much if I let the LDS "broker" the deal.

Hydro $25

Wow! What a "deal!" I'd tell 'em to do all three, and charge me on a per reg basis, instead of giving me a "discount" (shafting). But that's me. :)
