Sorry, if it's not on the list on the first page of this thread then I've not come across one. You can try your local calor gas place, they wont refill a FE but they quite often have cannisters.

WILDWOODS UPDATE

I called Wildwoods at Crews Hill Enfield to confirm that they refill CO2 and was told they do. Drove 40 minutes to get there to be told that they only refill JBL cannisters so dont waste your time going there for FE's :twisted:

Can anyone tell me where I might get refilled around Essex?

Looks like I will have to purchase new cannisters everytime I need a refill.

Thanks for that update. If there's no-one else near you on the list then calor gas often sell and replace CO2 cannisters if that's of any help. Otherwise you can try local places which service FE's, though many of them won't just refill, they'll want to do a full service which can be more expensive than buying a new one. Have a look in your yellow pages and make a few phone calls, you might strike it lucky.

Honestly I don't know. There are different grades of CO2 and the stuff I use is food grade as I have the same cannisters as pubs use, I don't know at what grade it would become fish unsafe. Probably worth searching the CO2 forum and asking there if you don't find anything.

I would suspect that the co2 in a FE, which many of us use, would of a lower grade than food grade co2

CO2 is CO2, simple as that. The only difference in grades from what I understand is the container. Food or medical grade (cant remember which) comes in a container with a glass lining, whereas FE's are just the metal cylinder with no lining. The glass stops any potential metal that may come off getting into the gas.

FE's are fine for what we need :)

Ok, I've finally got one for South Wales although its a bit expensive

Aquatics Online

Email : mail@aquatics-online.co.uk
Website : http://www.aquatics-online.co.uk
Direct Link to the product - http://www.aquatics-online.co.uk/catalo ... ystems.asp
Tel: 01656 663427

You send your empty one to Aquatics Online (you pay the postage) and they send it away to be refilled. The refilled bottle is then sent back to you with a carriage charge. The changeover time is up to 3 weeks, but they normally have full bottles which they send to you immediately and then refill the one you've sent to them and add it to their stockpile.

Thanks, I've added it under a new heading of 'online' since it might also be useful for people who don't have a local source.

Have they moved then?

I drove by their place the other day and they were still located on Litchard/Brackla Industrial Estate, Bridgend - a good 10 miles from Brynmenyn.

Oh my Gosh, sorry, I'm totally wrong! It is situated in Brackla Industrial Estate, not Brynmenyn Industrial Estate! I totally apologise - I had Brynmenyn on the brain.
