I just had to get my 20 lb bottle refilled. I did not realize that Red Comet had moved. I was very disappointed to drive there and find an empty building.

I had another errand that took me to 8th and I-25 area. I swapped my 20 lb bottle for a fresh one at General Air. Total cost of $19.40.

They have another location at 4901 So. Rio Grande St. in Littleton. That is just north of Santa Fe and Belleview.

I was up at Standly lake waterskiing with a friend a few weeks ago. While I was in the area I had Red Comet fill my 5 pounder. It was still $8. I asked them about filling my 20 pounder and they said the price went up to $25. So swapping at General Air or a hydroponic shop seems like the cheapest option. Aurora Hydroponic on the corner of Quincy and Chambers swapped my 20 pounder for $15 about 6 months ago. If one is attached to their bottle, Brew Hut will fill a 20 pounder for $30. Use your monthly discount and it would be around $27 including tax.

Ladies and Gentlemen. I am openining a shop in Castle Rock and will have 5 lb fills for under $9.49. I am still working on a hydro test service as well that will likely cost $30. I am trying to find a cheaper person. Look for us in Jan 2013. Castle Rock seems far, but is 10 minutes sount of 25/C-470.

Prost

Thanks for the heads-up on Red Comet ADX. I just called them and it's apparently $12.50 to refill a 10 lb tank there (still $8 for 5 lb tanks).

I bought gas today and it was quickly filled and around $10 for a 5 lb tank


Worth going to

Great crew running the place.

Up refilling my tanks a RedComet this a.m. and got a nasty surprise, they're now charging $2/lb regardless of tank size. Evidently the cost of CO2 has shot up since the pot legalization - no one mentioned that side effect during the campaign!

I'll have to start fishing around again for a place to do cheap refills - not keen to trade away my nice new tanks. Has anyone pulled off a cheap refill in the Denver metro area in 2014?

Very nice folks working at Barley Haven, I was quoted $11 for a 5lb tank refill and $22 for a 10lb tank. They do the fill on site so you don't have to drop off and pick up later.

I did some more shopping around after the big price bump at Red Comet ADX, and came up with a winner.

Way to Grow (301 57th Ave in Denver), an "Organic & Hydroponic Gardening" operation, offers 20lb swaps for $6.99, and will also refill any size tank for $6.99 (sounds like they generally have you leave the tanks and give you a pick up time later that day or the following day, but if you happen to come in when the guy is doing the daily tank refill you can wait and take yours home then). I dropped my two 10lb tanks off this afternoon and picked them up full a few hours later. Can't believe this pricing!

My tank was empty, and of course its Sunday, so my options are limited.

Load up the tank, and was charged $30 for the refill.

YIKES!

Guess they need to pay for their new location.

Gotta find a new place, any suggestions?
