If you have 5# tank then My Local Home Brew Shop in Falls Church will exchange them http://www.mylhbs.com Other wise Roberts Oxygen will exchange or fill larger tanks. They have two locations in NoVA. http://www.robertsoxygen.com/

I have a five pound. Pev's said $20, I will call Roberts and ask for pricing.

Thanks, guys

Roberts charged me ~ $22 to swap a 20# tank.

Go to Check-It Paintball out in Chantilly (near Dulles). They do a 10# fill for $21. I don't think they exchange, but I wanted a fill place since I bought brand new tanks.

I'm looking closest to Fairfax, so I guess Roberts is my best bet... will inquire about pricing (I think I have a 7# tank?). Currently running on my backup tank!

I last filled it at Scotty's in Alexandria, but that was when I lived close, and it was more convenience than anything else.

BBBM is a little ridiculous in pricing though they are really the only place I have found that fills instead of swaps. $23 for a 5# and $40 for my 15# where I always hear of it being only a few more bucks for larger tanks. Supposedly you really pay for the guys to get off their butts and fill it for you.

I was told last time I was there that the Arlington Market does fills, but when I called to inquire about my 15 they said they do trades only.

Just wish I could find that magically cheap fill station.

Well, just called Roberts and a 5# exchange is $24.41.

Rep said an exchange is an exchange, which is good since my tank is out of cert. This appears to be a good way to get a certified tank I can take elsewhere to refill cheaper next time ;-)
