Hi antipofish

Not sure i have my own 2kg bottles so was getting them refilled but now i just get 2x6kg from them if you give them a ring and ask them there very helpfull


Cheers. Out of interest, do you have a pic of how you have set up your rig to give me some ideas for underneath the tank ? I have a smallish cabinet that is split into two sections by a dividing board that is part of the weigh bearing structure so I cant remove it though I guess I could drill a couple of small holes to allow pipework to pass through. :)

Anybody know where I can get a 2kg FE refilled in Kent? North Kent would be best but I can travel!!

Its okay I've managed to find a couple of places by Googling 'refilling a CO2 fire extinguisher +Kent' - thought this might be a useful tip as it even bought up the results from a Yell.com search showing all the businesses in the area who provide this service. I even found someone who will come to me and do an exchangel!

If your filling a Fire Extinguisher best place to start would be you local fire station they will know someone local that will do Fire Extinguishers Servicing And Recharging

Pop in and speak to someone or give them a call and ask to speak with your local fire chief you can google the number for you local fire chief

Thanks sussex-cichlids but my local Fire Station (the first place I phoned) were no help at all :( They only do their own FE's and couldn't put me on to anyone else. I've got someone coming round today who will swap me a full FE for my empty one for £15 (which seems the norm around here). I found quite a few other places but why travel when I can get a FE delivered to my home for the same money?

Does anybody knows, where I can get a refill of TMC/paintball/ co2 canister in Portsmouth? Have tried different Fire protection companies, but none wants to do refills?

Try calling fire protection companies who service Extinguishers and ask if they have any out of date cylinders.

Thanks Mark!

So they are selling them cheaper, if outdated?

Yes absolutely, they are good for nothing unless they are retested which I dont think is viable.

Anyone living near Deeside in Queensferry North Wales tried this place CO2 Services,Bumblebee Garage, Church Street, Deeside, CH54AR.

I have got four bottles, 1.5 kg, 2 x 2kg and a DUPLA 500g bottle. The last few times I have had them filled they seem to run out dead quick. 6 weeks for a 2kg bottle :woot: The guy I spoke to said that some places try to just decant the CO2 from a large bottle into your small bottle and it is never as good as using the pressurised pump system.

Incidentally, am I just being paranoid or what, but are we okay to just use "any old CO2" isn't it supposed to be medical or pharmaceutical grade C02, not just stuff used for welding or something like that.

I am taking my bottles round to this guy tomorrow so I will let you know what the price is and stuff.

Cheers,

Steve

I went to the guy in Queensferry and he filled all my bottles for £25.00. He also has 3kg bottles which he sells for £30.00 and does a straight swap out with a replacement for £10.00. I am going to measure it up to see if it will go under my cabinet, if it does it should last about 6 months. :D :D

For those in the Sunderland area looking for a good deal for CO2 then try Sunderland Beer Company, Ryhope Street South, Ryhope, Sunderland. I just got a 6.35kg bottle cost £40 returnable deposit for the bottle and £8.34 inc vat for the gas. This is also the cost for the refill :D
