Who fills co2 tanks near Joliet.


I would usually go to the Joliet tri state to have it filled but they are now out of business. Can anyone point me in the right direction. I'm looking for a fill not an exchange. Somewhere in the Joliet area would be best.
Thanks

Search for local welding or beverage/beer supply companies. I've heard of fire extinguisher service facilities refilling them as well, but I don't know what type of business that would be... Good luck finding someone to refill it, I had none.

There is a welding place in Joliet, but can't recall the name right now... the other would be Brew & Grow, but they exchange tanks. Paintball shops will only refill the small 20/24oz tanks, not the bigger 5/10lb tanks

This is for a 5 lb and 10 lb tank so paintball place wont work. Ill probably hit up the place in mokena for now. Something closer would be nice so keep the suggestions coming. Thanks everyone.

Call them before you go. Need to tell them what time you'll be there.

Cintas Fire Protection
1080 Corporate Blvd, Aurora, IL 60502

about $25 to refill a 5lb tank, I haven't had mine refilled there yet but I plan to when it runs out. I called for the price.

looks farther from you than Mokena but maybe somebody else will find this useful, if anyone knows a cheaper place near Aurora let me know.
