Those services are far and few these days, slip them a few brews they'll possibly reward you later.

I just purchased a 20lb tank on Craigslist. After reading this thread, I took it to Fire Services, Inc. 5652 Bayside Road, Virginia Beach, VA 23455. (757) 464-9488.

Hydro and fill is going to be right under $40. I didn't catch the exact ammount about for the hydro, but filling a 20lb tank was $21.

I had to drop it off and it is going to take about a week because of the hydro, but you can't beat the price.

Just called the Airgas location in Portsmouth & in Chesapeake. Both quoted me the following prices: 20lb = $59.84, 5lb = $27.33, I went to the Fire Services guy on Bayside in the past, but you have to wait a week for hydro.

Waiting a week was frustrating, especially since I went around Thanksgiving so it took much longer than normal. However, you only have to hydro once every five years, so it isn't that major of an inconvenience. Plus your supporting a small local business.

For simple fills he can do it on the spot.

I do most of my business with ARCET although BOC gas is pretty good also. Priced about the same. ARCET has welding supplies so I can consolidate trips. They both exchange bottles, I've found ARCET easier if you have a bottle that doesn't have one of their stickers on it. I swapped out a 5lb CO2, a 20ft3 beer gas (CO2/N2 mix) and a 20ft3 argon bottle today for $60.

Just went to Roberts Oxygen in Greenbrier area of Chesapeake this morning. Walked in with a empty tank and walked out with a 5lb filled tank for $17 (they exchange, don't fill on the spot). Took all of 5 mins!

+1 for Fire Services, cost $13 to fill my 5lb tank. My buddy got his filled at Airgas the other day and was charged $34 and they only pressed his tank up to 300#. What a joke
