CO2 in Greenville

Anyone looking for a decent place to get CO2 in Greenville should consider AndyOxy. They are on Rutherford road and they sell a full 5lb tank for $80 after tax and then offer refills (swap outs) for I believe $10-$16.

Airgas has the same price for the tank, but their refills are $20. I found a welding supply place in greenville that does refills for $10 but can't remember the name of it right now.

i'd go with a 10 lb at least. my 5 lb on my 38 gallon usually last 3-4 months i think.

My 20 oz. tank split to two tanks lasts about a month at a time. There used to be a welding supply place in Mauldin, but I'm not sure where it has moved to. Thanks for that other info guys!

Swapped out my 5 lb. tank at Praxair on Hwy. 101 in Greer by BMW for $20 yesterday. Just an FYI to keep things updated.

Do you know the name of that place? It's pretty close to my work and sounds cheap! Is that the machine and welding supply place?
