Where do you fill CO2?


I ordered a 5lb tank, and I'll need to get it filled. Where do you go to fill your tanks? Preferably in Newton/Needham area.

I'm not sure if its different for a plant system, but, almost any paintball shop has a co2 filling station. Usually there prices are reasonable. I am not sure if they will fill a large cylinder like that though.

All my co2 is made by yeast. But, I fill my paintball gun canisters at the local Wal-mart for pretty cheap. There's a sporting section in the back, might not be the same for all Wal-marts.

You could try going to a gun hobby store, they usually have paintball refilling tanks. Paintball shooting ranges usually have refilling stations that you can go to and fill free of charge.

Of course you would need to pay for rental or admission, but usually I just walk right in and fill up my tanks and leave.

Hi,
just found this thread...
I have not been in a while, but I have my tanks filled at Igo's Welding Supply in Watertown. A lot cheaper than Airgas for example...

Hope this helps...

Yup, that's where I've been going.
