    I need to refill my CO2 canister. Frans suggested Afrox in Stikland, but when I spoke them now they say they don't do it.

    Can anyone suggest a place in Cpt(northern subs) that can fill a canister?

    Hi JD - I usually go to Chubb in Paarden Island. I actually need to take my CO2 bottle there as well, at some stage :(

    Just could net get around to doing it, yet. BUT, they only do it in the week as well. Not on Saturdays :(

    Cool thanks Jacques. I managed to get hold of a company called Baytec Fire in Oakdale, Bellville. I'm waiting on them to call me back with a price and time it will take to fill. I think they can actually go out to your premises to fill as well. I'll ask the lady when she phones me back.

    I also have a 2kg canister. Baytec don't fill the canisters themselves. They send it away. That's why it's so expensive.

    Thanks man. They charge R105 excl VAT to fill. Also sounds like they want to force an inspection(R65 excl VAT), which is stupid since this is a brand new canister.

    So far Chubb sounds like the best bet. Anyone else know of places?

    CO2 refills

    I fill my 2kg Co2 at Nova marine in Paarden Eiland for R30!

    I think you guys are paying way too much for CO2. I thought I was paying too much for CO2 but now I see I get it at a bargain!!!

    The second time I went to Chubb both guys that fill the tanks were on lunch. I found another place in Milnerton(the name escapes me now but I should have the invoice somewhere) that charged me R35. No more Chubb!

    Getting CO2 refilled in CPT is a real pain in the ass. :eek: and chubb really sucks in terms of reliability and service. There is always an issue. So I found somewhere new where service was simple and great. They will even mod a fire extinguisher for you.

    Paid R45 to refill 2KG's

    Hope this helps you guys

    That's where I've been going. Quick and easy. Chubb isn't too bad, IF the guy that is supposed to do the refill is actually there.

    That reminds me, I have to go get my canister filled this week... I just wish there was a place in the northern suburbs that can do it while you wait.
