I think they'll fill any tank up to 20# for $20, paintball tanks for $10 unless it's Halloween or similar "troublemaking" holidays.
D'you know off hand what their cost for a 20# tank is to buy new/used and/or their keg part prices?

I'm afraid I don't off hand, but give them a call.

Your best bet is to find one on craigslist and just have them swap it

When I lived in the city used nfc too, great place. But I can also suggest airgas. There are few of those around.

Default Refilling CO2 in SW Burbs of Chicago

For anyone who used to refill their cylinders at City Carbonic in Brookfield, it has moved to Hickory Hills. The new place is much easier to find as well.

City Carbonic
7709 W 98th St
Hickory Hills, IL 60457

ETA: Crap , cyclogenesis already wrote this 3 months ago.
