    Default CO2 Refill Locations For Your Area

    I don't know if I'm crossing a boundary or not but I'd like to start a spot on this site that will help people find a place close to them that they can fill their CO2 tanks. I had one place tell me that they will swipe my new tank for a filled tank. Not happening.

    I found this place in the Richmond, Va. area:

    RICHMOND OXYGEN CO.
    11009 Richardson Road
    Ashland, Va. 23005

    Ph: (804) 798-2525

    M-F: 9AM - 5PM
    Sat.: 8AM - 12PM

    For a 5 lbs tank fill: $13.65 Total on March 5, 2009

    It's located in the Hanover Air Park off the Atlee/Almont exit off of I-95

    I was in and out of there in less than 10 minutes.

    I found this book in my cupboard called the yellow pages

    look under welding supplies, paintball supplies, and sometimes Fire protection equipment, as those who fill co2 fire extinguishers may be able to fill co2 tanks.

    Call ahead and find out if they swap tanks or fill tanks.

    I'd figure it would be quicker and more convenient to those who have to do an endless search in a big city and find a place that is relatively inexpensive. Too many places around here want to swap your tank and want over 50 bucks for a 5lb CO2 tank. Not all fire extinguisher places do refills and are way over priced.

    I take it you're in Phoenix. I swapped my 5lb CO2 tank out at Vern Lewis welding supplies in the west valley for 14 bucks. For Beer gas the only place I found that will fill as you wait is Canyon State Carbonic in Mesa/Tempe. The other gas suppliers wanted a 7 day refill time on a 22cu ft nitro tank.

    Default Thanks

    Lush,

    Thanks for the reference to where to fill up CO2. I went down there today, I live in Richmond, and the service and price was excellent. $20 for a 10lb fill up. I had searched on yellow pages and was unable to find anything, luckily it pulled up your thread.

    Thanks!

    I use Airgas off of Harry Hines (on Joe Field Rd) in Dallas. They charge me 8.00 to fill my 2.5lb and 10.00 to fill my 5.0lb bottles. If you go in the morning (or they say, most days before 2:00pm...they will fill on the spot.

    This Airgas site locator should be useful:
    Airgas.com - Gas, Welding, Safety Supply.

    I live in Overland Park, Kansas and go to a place called Home Brew Pro Shop. I think he charges around $15 for a trade (drop off your tank and pick up another).

    If you are in the Wilmington, DE area, G and E Welding supply! The guys are super cool there. Filled my 5# tank there for 11 bucks. Did a recert of a tank for $22.95 (which I thought was a tad high, they send that work out to Hoopes Fire Prevention in Newark, DE) and it took about a week.

    They always ask where the beer is every time I go in with a tank.

    Default Southern Maryland Location -- Laurel Bottled Gas Co. Inc

    In southern Maryland (south of B'more), there is an old curmudgin guy who runs a hole in the wall gas and accessories shop. For less than $15 he'll fill your average 5lb tank in about 6 seconds, take your money, give you a receipt and you're on your way.

    Laurel Bottled Gas Co. Inc is what it's called. It's not too far off of I-95 -- on US 1. Here is his/their web-site: * Helium Balloon Tanks - Laurel, MD - Laurel Bottled Gas Co. Inc.

    Most importantly, he's open both Saturday and Sunday (morning ...or was). Everywhere else around here (Robert's, Valley National Gas, etc.) they work less hours than I do and are never open when I'm not at work.

    That guy also seemed to do other stuff, but my grill is charcoal...just needed some beer gas and he hooked me up on 4th of July Saturday.

    Default Northern NJ - Paintball

    In my neck of woods (Morristown area), most places charge about $25 for a 10lb CO2 tank but either swap only, or take a week between drop off and pickup since they do batch fills.

    Instead, I was lucky enough to find a paintball store that fills while you wait for the same amount.

    PaintballDepot
    760 Route 46
    Kenvil, NJ 07847
    (973)-584-2220

    There's another store that *may* also do while you wait refills - call in advance:

    PaintballDepot
    67 Water St (Rt. 206)
    Newton, NJ 07860
    (973)-579-2742
