Anybody from Rochester, NY know where I can get a CO2 tank filled? I don't want to swap it out, as it's brand new.

Thanks!

Rochester's a good size place, what's nearby? Any paintball places and many discount bev centers can fill them.

I'm a ways down the road from you, but there is a place in Lancaster that fills them cheap. I pay $7 or $8 for 5lbs. They don't swap either, just fill. It's a fire equipment place that sells and refills fire extinguishers. It's called Trost Fire equipment, on Walden. I can't help you much for Rochester, but check with fire equipment places if you don't want to shuffle off to Buffalo..

I'll have to try Trost next time. Been going to Praxair and they are a lot more expensive.

I've had mine filled at Monroe Extinguisher on Dodge St. I also bought both of my CO2 tanks there. I bought two 15lb tanks which were filled, for $50 each. This was a few years ago, so the price may not be the same. Another nice thing is that if your tank is expired, they will take the old one and replace it with another (or test it, i don't remember which). They are used tanks but perfectly usable and tested.

Good call on Monroe Extinguisher! I picked up a used full 5# tank there on Saturday for $45!

I just filled(exchanged) my 20 lb. tank for $19.00 at the Sunset Hydroponics on Clay St. in Henrietta. This is a good deal no?
