Hope you can get cheap refills! I have seen people charging £15-25 to refill a 500g bottle :bored:

£14.95 for 500g and £25.95 for 2kg. To buy a 2kg cylinder though its £150! im tempted to just buy the fire extinguisher etc and hide it. She never goes near the tank so i may get away with it.

Used bottles either throw then in the recycle bin, or put them up for sale on ebay, someone might collect them from you.

I've just rung the fire extinguisher shop around the corner from where I live. He's offereing a 2nd hand 5 kg cylinder for £10 each and will refill for £10 a time... in other words he's giving me the bottles for free!
