Co2

Denver area! Where do you get your co2? I know there are a million places (considering the 420 friendliness) but I want to know from other hobbyists. What is your favorite?
Much appreciated guys!

I use the liquor barn on Broadway in Englewood. Tanks are reasonably priced and it costs 10 bucks to exchange a 10lber.

Thanks Bruce, I think you mentioned that at the last as meeting but I totally spaced it. Do they also fill up smaller tanks?

They don't fill tanks they just exchange them.

Liquor barn on broadway is probably the best price. Brew hit here on Hamden in aurora wants $30 for 20lbs refill...

Yep, they are up here in Northglenn off 104th and Irma. its 9.00 I think for a 5lb fill, they fill while you wait. I use them as they are less than a mile from my house. They have strict hours though, Monday-Friday, 8-4:30 and will fill tanks up to 4:00

Another option is all the "grow" shops around town. Acme Hydroponics in Broomfield refilled my 10 gal tank for about $7 last year. I had to wait a few days to get the tank back.

If you just want to fill it Gen Air or any of those places can do it.

It seems that most of the hydroponics place so Lu do 20# tanks. They have really cheap swap out programs. I have no idea it I would check there first if you have ability of keeping a 20# with your setup.

u can find cheaper than 10 for a 20lb swap. way to grow is like 7/8 bucks. they know if they over charge for c02 there $ flow will go somewhere else, nature of the beast in that area, its more to get people into the store where they make it back on other markups.
theres also a place near/across the street from boyers coffie that does refils

would be nice if the mods made a sticky of co2 spots i remember i made a good list while back for people.

I wish they would swap steel tanks as well I end up having to pay several times as much since I have a steel tank.
