Yeah, I've found several on ebay that have been pressure tested and everything, but the problem is that there is only one place here that will actually fill your tank, the rest just want you to trade your old one in. The first tank I got was from beveragefactory.com and is brand new and beautiful and there was no effin way I was turning that sucker in to get some P.O.S. tank. However, I have now realized that the hassle of getting it filled (have to have a truck b/c that place won't let you put it in a car) is not worth the prettiness of the tank since it sits inside the fridge and no one sees it anyway.
I thought I would just buy an ugly one outright from one of the places that swaps them out and they wanted more money for a beater than beverage factory wanted for a beauty, so I'm looking for a cheapo beater tank to trade in to them.
