Hey all,
Back after a lay off from my tanks and Alpha Fire Protection in Castleford, West Yorks, did me TWO 2kg FE for £10!!!
They were a bit of a bargain but he said to me he'll do a 2kg FE refill for £10 and he's a really nice bloke to boot!
01977603220 - normally goes to answer machine but he seems good at returning calls

Just to add to this - nipped up to get my 5kg refilled for £19 and was chatting. He says he gets loads of 2kg FE that are out of date (have to be pressure tested every 10 years and is apparently cheaper just to buy a new one) that are full - he just discharges them then sells them to scrap merchants. However he'd be happy to sell them on for AQUARIUM USE ONLY (doubly underlined in red) for £10 each - the idea being you use them like disposable cylinders (and then get £3 on the empty from the scrappers). Seems like a cheap source of gas!

Just about to set up a planted tank and was wondering how long a 2kg cylinder might last in a 24 gal tank? Aiming to have a fully planted tank, not just a Riccia carpet :)

Will trawl the rest of the site for all other info, regulators etc. Many thanks.

I went back to Brentex in Middleton, Manchester and they only charged me £3.50! It probably cost me more in diesel than the gas!

That's who I've just got my first cylinder and fill from. 7 pound as it's a tall one. Said it should last me ages

After much searching i have found a place which seems reasonable on price regarding refills in my area. Cambridge beers in burwell. initial cost of a 5kg cylinder is £45 which includes a £15 deposit, when you return for your first refill you get the £15 back and refills are £23 for 5kg!

Hi all,
anyone know of anywhere in Co. Durham to get c02 refills? Mine has just ran out.
I was told you need food safe c02.... but there seems to be a lot of fire extinguisher c02 being utilised here, is this ok? Is it worth trying my work fire extinguisher provider to see if they can refill c02?
Thanks,
Ady.

Hi, do they do smaller bottles too ? What dimensions is a 6kg bottle ? Does it just link up to a normal regulator etc ? Cheers.
