CO2 Refills...


15 Mar 2011
Just had my 2kg refilled by Flame Skill in Great Yarmouth.

£4. (Price list on wall for fishtank and paintball refills of various sizes)

Sent them an email last week (Dec 2020) asking if they still refill, and mentioned my fire extinguisher is over 10 years old, here is their reply

Thank you for your enquiry, yes we still fill Co2 extinguishers for aquarium use the Cost is £5.00 + vat (£6.00)

We should be able to refill whilst you wait.

You are partly correct in that we cannot fill a cylinder over ten years of age until it has been retested, the test will require that the valve be changed as well so we offer tested, refurbished cylinders c/w new valve at £40.00 + vat (£48.00)

We should be able to get one made up for you very quickly but would need to check your current unit to see if a diptube is fitted.

If a diptube is fitted this means that the Co2 liquid is drawn up which is at a higher pressure (without a diptube just the vapour is drawn off at a much lower pressure).

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us again.
