Default CO2 Refills

Hey, just got into kegging and have a 20# tank I need filled. I live in Wallingford, any suggestions on where to take it for filling?

Thanks!

Look for a welding supply or a fire extinguisher equipment place.

I've been to Hogans Alley Paintball in Meriden to get my 5 lb tank filled. $20. Not sure how much for 20 lb but the guys there are nice. They even replaced a seal once on my tank for virtually nothing.

I just got a 5 lb filled at a fire extinguisher place for $10. I'm in KY, so there may be regional prie differences.

I've gotten mine filled at Hocon Gas in Waterbury (near Home Depot).

Airgas.... but they were ridiculously expensive for a 5lb tank.. also they don't fill they swap, they have a bunch of locations though so they are convinient.

Nobby Bev in Plainville, CT does refills, not sure of price yet; but now that I have a 20lb aluminum tank that is pretty I'll be going there so I can keep my pretty tank :-)

Use to go to shoreline too but they stopped filling tanks mid summer and only did swaps if you had an account. Airigas in Wallingford dose swaps price was a slight bit higher called a ton of places and was told CT passed some new food grade gas rules and no one wants to refill anymore due to tank certifications could be BS only found one place to refill but had to drop off tank and return later to get it 20 minutes away if you find a pace love to know
