I'm looking for a second CO2 tank for my kegging setup. I want a 5lb Aluminum CO2 tank. I'm hoping to find one with at least a couple years left before it needs pressure testing (i.e. 3 years or less since last stamped test or manufacture date) I've found them online for as little as $56 plus shipping new. I'm hoping to find one for $40 or less in the Atlanta area. Thanks!

Have you checked eBay? I paid under $100 for my 20 lb tank, shipped.

check craigslist, I got a 20lb tank (steel) for $15. I'm sure you could do something like that and trade it for a 5# aluminum one.

dont be so set on aluminum. i do hydro testing of gas cylinders. i have failed more aluminum cylinders in the past year than i have failed steel cylinders in my entire life. i dont understand the obsession with aluminum. especially in the 5 lb size.

actually my thought on aluminum is that I don't want to worry about rust. 5lb fits in my keezer. Haven't had much luck on ebay/craigslist yet.. but will keep looking.

I have a spare 5 lb aluminum tank but it needs a hydro test. Date stamped is 09/05. Hydro is only $20. I'd be willing to trade for something? Let me know.
