Re: [APD] Solenoids & Needle Valves

you know i thought to myself this guy could be lying, it's probably never been tested. but then i realized they are just gonna take my bottle and give me one thats already filled. and theyre gonna test that bottle and refab it if anythings wrong. so i called and asked them, and they said thats true. I asked him if he didnt think that was just a little crazy. he said thats how they do it, besides a new bottle in cycle isnt a bad thing.
good idea though.
i never thought to check it once i get one from them. although we dont have a welding place for gas, just Airgas. And they do medical and everything. I think they keep a certain amount of filled bottles in all the sizes, alot of smaller soda carrying places use the 5lb tanks.

First thing I did when I got my 5lb bottle was check the sucker when it 
was full when I got home. I put some soapy water around the neck and lo 
and behold there were bubbles. The tank cost me around $150 if I 
remember right.

Now I likely did marginally overpay, but returning the bottle was a no 
questions asked deal. The dealer didn't even test it. Just took it 
behind the counter and says, "Sorry about that. That is rare. I'll have 
to order another, but come back tomorrow morning and I'll have another 
for you filled".   The next day I dropped by on my way to work to check 
their hours at 6:30 in the AM. Surprisingly they were open. Sitting on 
the counter was a familiar sight, a pefectly new silver 5lb. cylinder 
with a bill under it that stated "Replacment. Hotte. Pickup."   Since 
then I've been to have it filled and they've waived the fee a couple 
times for me.  

I think the welding shop is just entertained that I can use their 
equipment for fish. Likely see it as an opportunitly to send a whole new 
line of customer their way. I tell you... I would in a heartbeat if I 
knew any other aquarists in this area. I've _never_ experienced customer 
service so good as from the folks down at Cane Welding Supply.
