Default where can i fill a CO2 tank in Christiansburg VA?!

Hey guys, I've been calling just about every welder in town with no luck. I live in the Christiansburg area of Virginia and am starting to think I am the only one in the area with a keggerator. Does anyone know where I can get a 5 lb tank filled?
Thanks,

There should be an Arcet near you over at radford. They do exchanges though.


arcet.com

hope that helps.

You could try calling a paintball place as well.

Just hit up Arcet and did an exchange. I wasn't crazy about giving up my shiny tank, but there isn't a single place around here that fills them, not even the paint ball shops (they don't have the adapters to fit 5 pounders). Thanks a lot for your replies!

I use Arcet for my 5# tanks too; The benefit is that you'll always have a tank with current inspections and don't have to pay the 5 year fee of a hydrostatic test. it's not all that expensive either.

on my 4# tanks I have to use a fill company since Arcet doesn't do swaps on odd shaped customer owned tanks. That actually costs me more than the swap of the 5#'er :/

getting a refilling is a pain. just swap it, look at it as owning the storage capacity, not the specific tank.
that way the date cert always rolls over.

If you have an Oxarc in your area and go big (75-100 cubic foot range) they will come to your house and swap tanks, no delivery charge.
