Where to refill/buy CO2 tanks in ATL?

Just wondering if you all have any suggestions on a good place to refill/buy CO2 tanks for calcium reactors?

I've gotten mine filled by Pye-Barker, Fire and Safety. The one I've gone to is in Kennesaw (3800 Cobb Int. Blvd.). Their phone number is 770-333-9988. Don't know if thats near you or not. If not they can probably direct you to one that is. It was $22.50 to fill a 10lb bottle.

The 10lb CO2 tank/bottle I got mailorder from Premium Aquatics. You can get used ones cheaper from local welding supply companys, but you have to be careful and know whats been in them before you use it. HTH.

I've been to Pye Barker, but I'm also looking for an alternative. I'm looking for something in the Alpharetta, perhaps a welding or beer supply shop?

Problem with Pye is that they are only open on weekdays 7:30 to 4. It's too far for me to go during lunch, and only open when I'm at work. I literally have to take a day off to get it filled.

I think they are pretty inexpensive for refills - thought I saw ~ $15. However, they are currently out of aluminum bottles (what I was looking for today).

HTH,

I'm considering getting a spare tank. I use Pye too and it's a pain to try to get by there the very day your tank happens to run empty. They're also sky high on their refill prices. IMO $22 for 10# is outrageous.

Beverage Supply in Norcross gives on site service while you wait for $8.

I get mine filled at Georgia Paintball near Roswell Road. The welding places I have been to always make me feel like i am a pain in their butt. They are open on weekends too which is nice.

If I can recall they charged me 12 dollars or so for a 5lb bottle. I don't remember what I paid the last time I used Pye Barker but I think it was close.
