Abe, I edited your thread so that we can use your's as a basis for all Scape CO2 inqueries.


Orange Coundy CO2 Refills

Spectrum Gas in Costa Mesa: www.spectrumgas.com
This is where I get all my CO2 refills at. This join mainly deals with the oxygen department (such as all those medical bottles you see). The shop is one of the "industrual garage" outfits. When you go there, just walk up with your cylinder and look for someone who looks like they work there and just ask for a CO2 refill. I have gone there numerous times and they are always very friendly about it.
It used to cost $8 a refill on 5lb. I think it is up to $10 now. There is no "pricing" on it since it isn't a normal service they offer, so just ask how much. You might get lucky at $8 :P I just hand them a $10 and don't ask.

In San Diego (and everywhere else) there is no end to industrial gas supply places as well as fire suppression places. I got my tank at AirGas (www.airgas.com) and had it filled at West Air in El Cajon. It was a matter of convenience rather than price. Most places I've gone to seem to do swap outs as a matter of course. I'll see about getting prices together.

Beverage factory has 5# cylinders for $57, and they will fill it (initailly) for $10. I dunno about refills, though.

I discovered when I moved that I had cross threaded the bubble counter on my regulator and most of my CO2 had leaked out. It was $19 to refill my 10# tank at O'Shea's. They do refills only, no exchanges. It was a little on the expensive side, but would be great for someone who owns a nice shiny tank. Very quick while-you-wait service.

As a bonus, I think I'm gonna have to go back and pick up a home brew kit. :drinkers:

I was considering filling my tank here 10.95 is reasonable I just would preffer somewhere closer. I called a couple places and they wanted to trade in. Does anyone in or near Long beach 247plants or abefroman know anyplaces that fill a tank with out swapping?

William,
those prices are pretty good. Don't forget to look for places like AirGas.com and other welding/fire system places.

Onsite Refills: $7 for 5lbs.

Rehydro: $15 - it takes 2 weeks to get it back.

I just got mine rehydro. It took 3 weeks to get it back. He only charge me $10 total w/Co2 for the inconvenience. He'll hook me up with a free refill next time. The thing is I didn't even ask for any of it. :thumbsup:
