shouldnt be a problem. if the tank is property of pepsi, the test is their problem. not yours. they should just give you another one.

i sell compressed gas(co2, o2, just about anything) the way it works is...if its my tank people are renting, the test is my problem. if its their tank, the test is their problem.

Roughly about the size of a corny keg, a little shorter and fatter as I recall.

I'm pretty sure we have a Pepsi place up here and I wouldn't mind asking them, I just want to make sure it'd fit in my rig before I went through the trouble of getting one. If that's the size of it, it may not work. Would the OP mind posting measurements?

8" diameter and 27.5" tall. Remember you need extra room for the regulator.

Do you think they will refill it? Maybe exchange it?

Would a regulator from a 5# tank work on the 20# tank? I actually think it might work in my kegerator, but being in AK, everything is finicky so I'll have to make a few phone calls to see if that's even an option.

Boomer, a co2 reg is a co2 reg...if it fits on a 5# it will fit on a 10-20-50#. No Worries

Is it safe to lay a 20# tank on its side?
