A good place to refill a Co2 tank is at DBC Marine in Richmond. They are a liferaft/ Safety Equipment for marine place. They are on Jacombs road in Richmond, very close to Ikea. I can't remember the address but you can google it. There is a big "Z" for Zodiac sign on the front of the building.

Just head to the right where the fire extinguishers/Co2 tanks are and ask for refill. Most of the time, they will refill for you right away.

I have used both KMS tools and DBC Marine. KMS was way to expensive I will never go back. Bring cash to DBC and you will get it even cheaper!!!

I'd call the other places, but I would also give Badlandspaintball and Camoflauge a call just to see if its cheaper ^^.

You won't get any cheaper than $15 cash at DBC if who ever is manning the desk there feels like it. Be aware, though that the last time I went I got a bit of an underfill.

I brought the "price too high" information to the attention of KMS and they dropped their price to $19.99 per 10lb refill. At KMS I know they will get me a proper consistent refill, their service is prompt and the price match/beat to Royal City ($21 these days) was very prompt.

Today I went to DBC Marine to refill and my 5lb which require hydro test. Instead of waiting a day for it, they swapped me with one of their red canister. He said its the same, now after doing a search, should I be worried?
It cost me $30.

SS Cylinder is those really nice aluminium ones that aquarium store sells?
Mine is really old, and its orange color with paint flicking off. There shouldnt be any difference right?

KMS on Woolridge off Lougheed just after Bloue Mountain. In Burnaby, you can try Royal City Fire Protection just south of King Ed.

I use to fill up 10lb tank at Royal city fire supplies for $20, but now the tank is half the size and if KMS actually charge by the weight then they are cheaper. :)
