Thanks Thanh! :clap2:. I'll have to check them out!BBK, if schedule is an issue, another place you can check out in your area is Delfaco's Home Wine & Beer Supplies. Right around the corner from you. The only thing is they will hold your tank in the freezer over night and then refill. They also weight the tank before and after refill charging for only the amount of co2 you get.
Glen, thanks for bring Carbonics up.
Mr.Beaver, you are right! That CO2 gas they have is actually a special compound made of gold-infused alloy. This special CO2 gas will make plants extra pearly and grow at an exponential rate. That's why they charge this much. That is the suma-uber-super special CO2.Went to Airgas 13727 Perry Rd, Houston since its the most convenient place to get a co2 fill near my work. $32.55 for a 10lb refill plus taxes/hazard fee $37.00! Very expensive (over double) from what I've seen other members post. Oh well, lesson learned will try another place (cheaper) next time.
You would be right on this one, B. There are in fact different grades of CO2, with the one for healthcare setting being the highest. The ones we usually get are for restaurant grades, which is used to carbonate soft drinks. There is also an industrial grade that is not as pure and might even be harmful to living things. We need some chemists to confirm this.Did you guys see the article of CO2 from TFH this month by James Walmsley? It claims that there are different grades of CO2. I can't verify this claim but it seems to make sense.
