O2: Refill:

Post by Laevatein » Sun Dec 21, 2014 8:04 pm

I need to refill my small D tank.

Does anyone in the Los Angeles know a place
where I can get it filled at a reasonable price?

Airgas wants $75.00 to fill the tank, which is
way too much.

If anyone knows a place, please let me know.

Thanks!

+1 to this
"When it comes to justifiable use of deadly force, you should seek to avoid confrontation, unless you have no choice and your life is on the line. This is easier to say than to do because it requires that you be calm and peace-loving throughout your life, but ready to use deadly force at any moment."

What level of license do you hold?

If you're an EMT or a Paramedic I can recommend a place in the San Fernando valley that I use.

The other, of course, involves orcs."

That's a mini-cascade..........we used to do that with about 10 of the largest O2 tanks. Do not do the big-boy cascade hung-over, it will scare the shit out of you......... :crazy: ........thank God I haven't had any booze in 20 years, but still...........Hell of a lesson !

So I'm not sure what I'm looking at here...

Is that for refilling a D off of the tank in picture?
Or is it for refilling the tank shown?

or at least make friends with some one at a hospital. the washers come on all the gas bottles, so there are usually extras kicking around.

DrJack,

The rig pictured is for filling a D from a bulk tank, This bulk tank happens to be a small 10CU o2 tank from Airgas.
