co2 hydrotesting and refills


so i bought a co2 tank online but i need a place to fill it and possibly get it tested. so i was wondering if anyone has spots they like to go to specifically. i live close to east side canary but i dont mind driving far.

so where do you go for your co2 refills?

Welding shops, fire extinguisher companies might test them. But i dont think theyll fill such a small tank

your good - yeah, they do (it's in the Suba Department) All I can tell you or anyone else is don't look at paintball places or Dick's sporting goods. They don't do Co2.

Sport Chalet didn't have the correct fittings for the tank.

All the local welding / gas supply stores were closed on Saturday. Ended up at a new local paintball facility near I-215 and Rampart. $25 for a fill 11-24-2012.
