Default CO2 Refills in NJ

Title says it all...does anyone know of a place in NJ that will refill a co2 tank (not exchange)?

I'm building a kegerator out of a 15cf chest freezer, and most of my parts arrive on Saturday. I did make one mistake (now that I look back) and ordered a brand new 10lb tank and I know once the fiancee sees it, she won't want a dirty old one in her house instead. After checking around though, it seems most places do exchange-only for tanks..at least the places I called.

I live in Morristown, but since I won't need to fill a 10lb tank very often it doesn't really matter if it's a little bit of a drive.

check the yellow pages for welding supplies. Surely someplace will fill it.

Called about 8 different shops in the area. Exchange only Looks like I may just have to go that route.

Or have a look at this database. Looks like a couple of places in Jersey that do fills. Not sure how close they are to you, though.

Well... a person can work up a mean, mean thirst after a hard day of nothing much at all.

This kind of an area is the best place for survival because you do have good, basically intelligent, hard working, decent people and they're all armed to the teeth... and that's my kind of people.

Down here in DE I take my to the fire extinguisher place. They fill mine up while I wait. I think they charge $18 for a #20 tank.

Try the paintball people. They usually have some cheap c02 filler outfits they deal with. I found a local beer distributor that fills paintball tanks and any co2 tanks, ($6.00 to fill my 5lb tank).

I was just going to say, call a paintball place. I belive paintball depot in the Kenvil plaza on Rt. 46 does refill our tanks. Give them a call, its prob. about a 15min. drive for you.

I live in Hopatcong and own a store in Ledgewood

I am thread ressurector!

The database link above is broken, and I'm looking for someone to refill tanks in north NJ without exchanging. I'm in Lake Hopatcong.

I called a bunch of places and it was exchange only, except for the one paintball place I called who wanted $38 to fill a 20# tank.

Road trip! Come down to New Brunswick for a pint at Harvest moon and stop at Reliable Carbonic $20 while you wait on a 20 pound tank.
