Does anyone have an idea how much it costs to recertify expired co2 tanks. I bought 4 corny kegs at a garage sale today all for 25 dollars and I also had to take 3 co2 tanks with expired hydro tests. I figured the kegs were worth about 50 dollars apiece anyway.

well, I paid 15 to have my 20 gallon tank hydrotested, but then I had one welding shop that just traded out an expired tank for a new one.

call welding shops in your area, the first place that did my hydro testing was firex, they specialize in extinguishers and fire safety stuff.

"I also had to take 3 co2 tanks" .....awww, I feel terrible for your burden.

get two tested, throw the other one on craigslist - a 5 gallon is worth at least 40, I would pay upwards of 70 for a 20+ gallon tank.

I'll take one of the CO2 tanks off your hands... I want to start kegging and need to start getting the equipment together. Send me a PM and we can work something out.

Thanks Mouse, but a guy at work wants the 20 lb tank and I want to keep the 10 and 5 pounders. Just wondered how much the recertification was going to cost. Did I mention the guy threw in 2 cases of 22oz bottles? I"m so dam happy I've been pissing my pants all day!!!!
