re: CO2 canister refills
Eight dollars is a buck sixty avg. per year -- test cost doesn't seem
like a reason for swapping tanks. At least not if you have someone
local that can do it. But, if the swapping arrangment means you don't
have to buy a tank, just put down a security deposit, then swapping
isn't a bad way to go at all. Even more so if your local supplier has
to send tanks away to be tested.
I will agree with this if your tank was brand new when purchased or you have
some sentimental reason for keeping it. In my case all my 20# CO2 tanks were
purchased used, so swapping them out gets me tanks no better or worse than I
had before, except I know they are tested when needed. Besides, swapping out
tanks takes about as much time as it does to pay the $12.67 a swap costs me.
The original question was whether swapping out tanks increased the chance of
regulator or needle valve damage due to a "contaminated" replacement
cylinder. I've never heard of this happening and I doubt it would. Never been
an issue, IME.
