Problem I was having was that a lot of those places either don't do 20# tanks or they won't do under 20# tanks.

Does Bud do 20# and under 20#? I'd like to keep my refills and exchanges at one place if at all possible.

Roberts told me no way to anything under 20# when I called them a few months ago.

I have an empty 20# here that I need refilled.

I get mine refilled at for $15.75 at:

Bars by Bud
8302 Hilltop Avenue
Fairfax VA 22031

They sell tanks as well, might be a bit pricey, you can also swap 5 gallon tanks with Roberts Oxygen (Many locations).

I am looking to buy a 5 or 10lb tank, checked with Roberts Oxygen and they are very expensive even the refills are expensive. I live in the Gaithersburg/Rockville are can somebody suggest a place, other than Roberts Oxygen, to buy and refill a tank?
TIA

I can get CO2 refills at a local scuba/dive shop for only 4.00-10.00 depending on the tank size! You might want to check out your local dive shops! Their used taks are many times cheaper also than other places and much better quality!
Also many home beer, and wine brewery shops will sell co2 tanks, and many do refills cheaper than other places also!
good luck!

pilla, I found myself ordering a tank from co2-canisters.com, then getting it filled locally, it worked out to be cheaper to buy and ship it then to get one locally.
