Default Does Home Depot sell 5 lb Co2 tanks??

I can't find them on their site and I also can't find any info here. If it's here and I'm missing it, point me in that direction, but if not, does anyone know if they sell them?

Thanks,
J

Have you tried a welding shop?

The best deal I found was the Beverage Factory, $56 plus shipping, was $20 cheaper than anything I could find locally.

Never seen them at big box hardware. Only the small 1 or 2 pound portable tank set-ups.

Keg Cowboy has them new for 54 + shipping. Jeff is local and easy to work with. I just bought all my kegging stuff from him and couldn't be happier.

I do not believe they sell CO2 tanks. Try a welding shop.

If you insist on a new bottle micromatic.com has them along with regulators so does chicompany.net

Hit up an Airgas. Check out their website for locations. It looks like there's a handful of them in Houston.

Depending on the store they may fill tanks there or swap them out for you. The one near me swaps them out but always has tanks in good condition and its only ~$15 for a 5lb tank.

Before buying check around and find out if you'll be able to get a bottle filled or if they can only swap. If they can only swap, don't buy a brand new tank, just to have to give it away in exchange for a beater.

I guess I should have told you guys that I already have one, but I'd like to have a backup and I have a HD gift card. We have a friend of the family who will fill my tanks up for free at work, but it usually takes him a few days to get it back to me. I was thinking, since I have $100 HD credit, why not pick up a backup.

Yeah, there are a few places I can get them filled in Houston for that price. I've never payed more than $15 or so for a refill, but I've never swapped tanks.
