Default Where to get CO2?

I am looking ahead slightly but I am trying to find a place here in Zanesville, Ohio to refill a CO2 tank. I've called MC Sports and I believe another sports store and they only refill the tiny Paintball-style cartridges.

Suggestions on where to call? I saw that some Walmart's refill but ours don't seem to. I'm really lost at who to call!?

Thanks in advance

Robert Rittenhouse

Welding supply stores will exchange and sometimes re-fill. Also some farm supply stores. Some auto parts stores.

+1 for fire extinguisher companies... funny, but the one that services my city, and most of Southern Ontario is literally right around the corner from me.

Nice. Thanks everyone. I think I found one or two places that might do it. I need to give them a call when they might actually be there tomorrow

One place is a gas company that has this gas delivery truck "Delille Oxygen Co" and they always are driving around with like 30 tanks in the back for delivery so i'm assuming they fill them too. The person that gave me the hint was at MC Sports. Thats where their main tank came from that they use to fill up CO2 cartridges.

I don't have a tank yet but is it a 5LB tank I should be looking at purchasing?

Thanks

All the welding places around here only do exchanges. I get mine filled at Airgas.

+1 on Paintball stores. I worked at one and we filled quite a few tanks for beer.

5 pounds is the standard size I would say that I have seen.

Just thought I'd throw in that while Paintball stores do fill, the one I went to charged me $20 for 5lbs. Airgas is never over $10.
