CO2 EMERGENCY

Fri Jun 28, 2013 9:44 am

HELP! I live in the South Haven, MI area and cannot seemed to find a place that will refill my 5 lb CO2 tank! I need this for my wedding tomorrow! Any places that are not too far?!

Also, it seems the nut on the regulator came lose, but I have not moved it since I placed it down. Why/How does the nut come lose? I am sure no one is messing with it.

Thanks in advance.

My searching is turning up Lake Welding Supply in Holland, or Carbonic Systems, Inc in Kentwood as your closest.

Those are both a bit of a drive, there's got to be someplace in Kalamazoo.

Double check the rubber gasket - some are built in (might be worn out), some require you to put one in yourself... & really torque on the thing when you put it on... within reason of course.

Too late for a CO2 suggestion (don't really have one anyway).
So... Congrats on your wedding! :pop
