Default Looking for 5 or 10 lb. Aluminum Co2 Tank

Hello,

I'm looking for the best place where I can buy a 5 or 10 lb. Aluminum Co2 Tank for a Soda Rope (beverage). I Live in Vancouver BC Canada But I have Items ship to my address in the USA as well. I'm also looking for where I can refill the tanks. If you know of any good place. Please let me know.
Thanks
NateBC

If you are open to steel. I picked up a 10 lb steel bottle ($30 with fresh hydro) at the local fire extinguisher place. They also refill for me for $5. 5-10lb Fire Extinguishers are quite common, and they were a lot cheaper than the local welding place who wanted almost $100.

No problem using steel at all.
Off hand I don't know of any up your way, but here in the states FE's have to be inspected, and re certified frequently (yearly?), and there is usually a tag, hanging on them saying who the FE company is and when inspected etc. I would guess its similar up your way. Just look on a FE at work, or in some other public building.

Steel bottles here have to be inspected every 5 or 10 years, but last forever. Aluminum have to be inspected as well.
