I live in Yadkinville NC and need my 5lb co2 tank filled. Been calling around all day and nobody fills them! They will swap one out but mine is new and I dont really want to trade for an old beat up one.

Does anyone know where to get it filled in this neck of the woods? Also, how much are yall paying to have ur 5lb tanks filled? Thanks a bunch guys.

I don't live anywhere close to NC, but fire extinguisher places often fill rather than swap. Here it's about $16 cash for 5 lbs and $20 for 10 lbs.
