CO2 gas bottles

Post by steve crawshaw »

Went to Whites in Lawrence Hill to refresh my gas bottle on the weekend. They said that they will be going over to a larger bottle, about 3 times the capacity of the normal ones at a cost of £46 instead of £22. It will offer some cost savings in the long term, but they are going to be a lot heavier which will be a consideration for some (including me) that need to get them down stairs etc.
cheers

I like to keep a bottle of stimulant handy in case I see a snake, which I also keep handy.

Colin said they only had the big ones when he's been. I'm not bothered really, still got two small ones to work through.

Did they do an exchange for the small bottle?

This year I think that I will finally develop an invisible cardigan and my project to extract gold from spiders legs will also reap great rewards.

I got a smaller one this time, but I guess it will be a monster next time. For me the issue is manhandling into the cellar but can probably manage if i'm careful. Hopefully they will just exchange small for big.

The "small" ones last me around 8 months, the big ones will be almost 'fit and forget'

The small ones I have are called 14Lb cylinders as they have that much CO2 in them (6.4kg ish) they weigh a lot more.

Just collected a large bottle from White's. Now £48 plus VAT, but no deposit charged (and I had no bottle to exchange). It is a beast though, I couldn't lift it out of the car.
