Default Trying to Find a Place to Fill my CO2 Tank in South Florida

Happy new year to all the members! I started brewing a few months ago, and I just bought a 5 lb CO2 tank and two kegs. I spent several hours today trying to find a place in South Florida where I could get the CO2 tank filled without success. I was wondering if there are any South Florida homebrewers that could tell me where they fill their tanks.

Cheers.

Where are you at in Florida? I would ask your local homebrew shop and also any welding supply store. Between the two, you should have no problem.

Generally the most economical places are an independent welding/industrial gas supply or more likely a fire extinguisher service center.

I live in Pembroke Pines and work in Miami. There are no homebrew shops around here. I will check some welding supply stores.

Thanks!

My wife contacted this company and they said they can fill up my 5lb CO2 tank for $20. I will try to go there this week and see what happens.

Check with Dive Tank inspection companies. There is one close to me in Pompano, he fills mine. Just another place to try.

I went to Mathewson Tri-Gas, left the 5 lb CO2 tank and picked it up a few days later. I paid $15. I filled up my first keg and enjoyed my first beer carbonated with the CO2 tank. Thanks to all for your suggestions.
