Alan,
If you enter CO2 into the search tab's menu (not the top one, the one in the row of tabs under the sponsor banner) you'll find a while pile of pages there - trawl through these to find previous suggestions of suppliers (warning, there will be quite a lot of pages, many of which aren't relevant to your quest - but it sets you off in the right direction).

Wow, great tip that Darragh, thanks.

Was quoted €50 in my LFS.

Hi,
I get co2 from AJ Edge in Bray
10 euro for refil any size bottle (mine ones are 5,4kg, but still would be 10ner for 2kg)
they also sell 5kg bottles (extinguisher and brewery) with velves for 25 euro (+10 for refil = 35 euro for full bottle)
I get 4 brewery bottles of them.
They refil while you wait, good service, very decent prices, highly recomend.




extinguishers looks better (like new) but i'll be repaiting them green anyway so i took brewery bottles

Hi there,

After reading all of these, I think I'm paying way too much for my CO2.

I have a BOC gasses VB cylinder which costs about €80 a year just to have it, and then €20 to refill it each time. I just did a quick look online and the VB holds 6.35kg.

So, what I'm seeing here is that (1) you buy bottles on ebay, etc and (2) someone fills them for you. Bray is probably too far for me to go! Anyone have any tips for someone who might fill a bottle around Limerick?

Also, are bottles picked up from ebay, etc, ok in terms of safety? Part of me likes the fact that BOC swap out the bottles each time I want a refill and they probably have some sort of quality assurance process which checks seals / for damage?

Let's see if you get any takers first - only fair since you had the decency to offer it for free.
If it remains untaken we can certainly add it as a prize for the next round.

I'd think about taking it if I thought I could get it filled locally. Is it just a standard connection?

what type of places re-fill it?

If its free, refilling it doesn't matter, recycle the empty canister.

Kevin,
I'm a little confused here (what, me???) about empty CO2 containers.
Perhaps you, or another Forum member, might be able to shed some light on the matter...
I have an empty fire extinguisher (from yourself, I think) but I was led to believe that if a container is more than a certain age after manufacture it cannot safely be refilled so these are refused (to be refilled) so it would be good to hear if anyone has had such a refusal?

John,

I think they need to pressure test after 5 years, I have a vague memory of someone saying that

I suspect this might be older than either of the above time passages - but it's worth knowing.
I fear, when time comes around for me to start using it I will have to have it checked then. (More potential expense...).

I never refill Fire extinguishers, mine are full to begin with and safe according to the supplier of same, the technology today differed entirely from decades ago and materials used also, they used be steel but are totally Aluminium now. I have seen Extinguishers many years older than seven and are still fully pressurised and working.

The only corrosion occurs on the Lever which is made of mild steel.

Cracks around the neck are the main concern but afaik, very few fail the pressure test.

If they didn't "need" to be tested, the Extinguisher Companies would be out of business.

haha!

So, when you say around the corner from me...... that sounds kinda creepy! Unless you know where I live... which is possible.... ?!

didn't get a chance to call him: busy at work for a few days, will give him a shout later in the week or next week. My bottle just got filled, and the annual charge not due for a while, so not in a major rush!

thanks!

ah, what I meant was, if someone wanted the 2kg I put up as a prize, they wouldn't have to be worrying about refilling it, use it and recycle it, it cost you nothing.
