Refill CO2 tank in Bay Area (San Jose)
 
Where do you guys refill your co2 tank in the bay area (San Jose)? Airgas charges $20 to refill a 10lbs tank. I just want to know if there are other places that are cheaper. Thanks!

Airgas is one of the cheaper places in San Jose but the one on Monterey Rd. is closed on the weekends. I end up getting mine at Carbonic Services in Santa Clara as it is near my work, they are a few bucks more expensive.

It's just a card room and there's some quirks like you're not really betting against the place, but rather a person who's sitting next to the dealer. You also have to ante a dollar every time which can add up (more so on fast games like War or Black Jack). They have good foods and drinks and a nice sports bar so it's worth going to when a game is happening (like Warriors or now Sharks). It's not a full casino so no slots or anything like that, just strictly card games.

I had fun and good luck on the 3 card poker =)

I paid 22+tax for my 10lb at a local shop in east bay, a year ago. So I think $20 is not a bad deal at all.

There's cutting edge paint ball. They only fill up to 5lb tanks though.

Sorry to open up this old thread, but does anyone know if Airgas, or Carbonic services require you to exchange your tank? Or will they just refill the one you have?

I recently purchased a nice 5 lbs tank, and don't feel like doing an "exchange" with them, since more than likely, I'll get a old beat up one.

carbonic only refill. airgas only exchange.

Awesome, thank you so much! Can't wait to get Co2 setup from GLA

Have you guys looked for places that sell/refill/service fire extinguishers? Usually, they are a bit cheaper. I get 2, 5lb tanks filled at the same time for about 20 bucks at wilgus.
