Glad you're getting CO2. Your plant growth is about to explode. You can get CO2 refilled at a welding store, paintball field, maybe a sporting goods store. I get mine at Robert's Oxygen (it's a chain) in case there is one near you. Good luck!

I have heard one thing to be careful of when you have it filled. Stay and wait for it to be filled. If you drop it off and come back for it or just exchange, I think they will just give you a crappy old one rather than your shiny brand new one.

That, of course, depends on where you go! The place I go doesn't refill your tank but gives you an already filled one in exchange. Also, I think we were looking for a link to the actual kit you purchased, the cylinder isn't important but the rest of the stuff is (solenoid, regulator, diffuser, etc).

How long will this 10LB CO2 tank last and how much cost to fill it. Hope fully I can get it filled today cause I just got it. But I might not be able to cause so far not one is able to refill the tank that I have talked to on the phone. I live in Duluth MN. Thanks for any answers you may have for me.

To refill my 5lb costs 20$ and they say it will last 1/2-1 year. I have gone through 4 in the last couple months because I keep having issues with my setup (tubes disconnecting, leaks, etc.). I have had this last fill-up for a few weeks now and everything was fine until all the sudden the gauge is down near the red :(. Now I have to figure out where my new leak is. My advice: make sure your system is tight before you turn it on, otherwise it is a big money pit!

Also, I'm sure you can find a place to fill it. Look here:,+mn&spell=1

Good luck!
