Default co2 refill ?

Anyone near Lansdale Pa? I'm looking for a place that will fill bottles for reasonable price.

I'm up in Williamsport.
My local beer distributor refills a 5#beer tank for $6.
Or, the local welding supply will do an exchange for $10

I gave up on trying to get mine filled. After a certain time, the tanks need to be tested or re-certified as well.

I just exchange it now.

Most places will test and stamp a tank for around 15$ I have old tanks so I don't worry about just swapping out

I think there's a welding place closer to you, but I go to John Posen in Blue Bell. $20 for 5# and $28 for 20#.

I found a distributor near me that fills tanks for $2 a lb. Just filled my 2.5 bottle with 3 lbs for $6.
