Well, any luck? I know they have always wanted to just exchange my 5# bottle everytime I come in, but they actually filled it once.

I just dont want to run into the 'no, you HAVE to exchange' if I decide on getting a bigger bottle.
Thanks

I've filled mine here:

Yates Fire Protection Services
2314 60th St
Hampton, VA 23661-1302
(757) 827-8696

The guy that fills them is not there every day so you may want to call before going. Reasonable prices also.

Is the "normal" place that is busted on diamond springs?
What kind of prices are you seeing for 5lb tanks?

I got mine filled, and I got the feeling that they would have preferred to exchange. I insisted it was a brand new tank, so I wanted to keep it.

I went to Airgas National Welders in Portsmouth, address and phone number is listed in a previous post. It was $21, and they did fill it while I waited.

Here, let me help plug them again -

Airgas National Welders - (757) 487-4922
3121 Victory Blvd, Portsmouth

They have helped me several times, and I am glad to hear that they also helped a fellow homebrewer. Hopefully they can help you too!

That sounds like what I will do because I have a nice shiny aluminum 20lber that I don't want to exchange. I am still using my other 10lb tank and have been too lazy to get the 20lb one filled. I better get on it though so I don't run out!

I normally use Fire Services on Diamond Springs...5lbs are <$13. my 20lb was $37 including a hydro test, probably $18.

He fills and returns your bottle there.
