Just been into maidenhead aquatics shepperton (nutty lane)
They carry 500g and 2kg refills. £18 and £34 respectively
They can do other sizes but will need to send them off, so there's a turnaround time.

Yep £16.95 for a bottle full of CO2. When its empty just go and buy another one, and return the empty bottle at the same time.

I'm not sure how big they are Paulo - I'll be going to get one tomorrow so will let you know.

I just picked a couple of these up today - they are 82cm tall, 14cm diameter and come with 14lb / 6.35kg of CO2 for £15.99 each. Thats £2.51 per kg which I reckon is about the cheapest around :D Ring your local calor dealer and see what they do.

I don't suppose any one knows of better place in London? What is wrong with this big city? All I need is a freaking CO2 refill station and there few around mostly out of town (I mean London town) :D

Right, sorry for the delay guys, I've been so busy this last month or so! Think I've updated everything.

Interesting to see that Euro Fire Protection have put their prices up by £5 on the 2Kg refill.

Tony, I'm confused, your bottle sounds the same size as mine but I could have sworn mine was 3.9kg.... quick Google on the web shows you to be right though, I obviously got more than I realised :D

Any chance of an address of this place, there's nothing on their website, it just asks you to call a generic national number.
Cheers :thumbup:

Anyone found refills around the farnborough, Surrey or Reading, Berks area. Guildford looked good until I saw read the size of the bottles. Got nowhere to safely store a cylinder that tall.

Not sure, I had a quick look round Guildford for FE replacements but they all turned out more than I was prepared to pay. I'm afraid I can't remember who I contacted, I just googled for fire service people in the area.

I'm afraid not, the nearest on the list at the moment is Kendel!

Try calling your local calor gas depot, they've been quite good for me in Guildford.

Alternatively you'll have to turn to your local listings.

If you do find anywhere then please do let me know so I can add it to the list. :)

Hey,

I have just got back from this one:

Euro Fire Protection
Location : unit 38 Capital Business Centre, 22 Carlton Road, South Croydon, CR2 OBS
Tel : 02089162010 or freephone 0800 316 7615 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting              0800 316 7615      end_of_the_skype_highlighting begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 0800 316 7615 end_of_the_skype_highlighting.
Services : refill 2kg bottles for £20 though someone got 2 x 2kg cylinders for £10 each in 2009 so they might be open to deals :)
Date Added/Updated : Mar 30, 2010


I got a refill for £20 and a new one for £40.

My point for posting however is that if you call before and they have them in stock, they will simply swap your canister for another one, so there is no waiting.

They are in an industrial estate, so there is plenty of parking, just try to call before you go there as I went yesterday, even though I didnt get through on the phone and they were closed, however I spoke to the chap today and he says thats very rare and there is normaly always one person in.

Also..... they took my old tank in and it didn't have its horn which was nice of them!

I know someone else said that it takes a week to turn around, however when I told him about the site and the previous comment he showed me the tank that they were brought a month ago and said they are still waiting for the owner to collect it! It wasn't an FE, so they do have to send those away!

They are on cromwell road in Banbury the lady said not to tell the guy out the back that it was for a fish tank as somone else gets goes there for that and he gets a bit funny....just make sure your FE has a nozzel on it and you will be fine!
