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.

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:

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

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:

Just filled up a 20# tank.

$12.65 total, took 10 mins.

The place looks industrial and a bit run-down, but they were quick and nice guys.

Bought and filled 20 lb steel for $105+tax. I wanted a 10lb alum but I was already there, should have checked availability first :(

Quoted me $72 for a 10lb but they didn't have it in stock. You can special order aluminum tanks but they only come in 20lbs I forgot how much.

Went to Airgass in Burbank. Great guys, a little expensive 21 bucks, but they fill the tank correctly with a pressurized setup, not from co2 tank mated to another co2 tank where you'll only get an equalized pressure so the tank is not full. I signed up for their membership (free) and it should be cheaper at next refill.
