Good point!

I don't believe there are any close enough to Razorworm. I delt with those companies in my last job. He'd be close to the next Praxair in Elk Grove.

Paintball is pretty big here, so they usually will refill.

(we live in adjoining towns)

There's a beer brewing place in Libertyville that refills CO2. Not sure if it's still open, but worth a look-see. I think the place is called The Perfect Brewer.

What size CO2 tank do you need? I used to go to Brew & Grow to exchange my 5lb tank for a new one. I think it was around $18 for the exchange. The one by me only exchanged 5lb and 20lb tanks.

If you are using paintball tanks, any place that refills paintball tanks (Dick's, Sport Authority) will refill them. They won't refill bigger tanks however

I have been coming here for a while to fill my aluminum tank. Only place that fills instead of exchanges.
