This section of the Guide will be nothing more than a list of where people can locally purchase, fill, swap or get CO2 cylinders hydro tested.

This guide replies heavily on your input. Contact me with the necessary information and I will add it to the list. See the table below for what kind of information I require. The more information provided, the better it will be for everyone. The CO2 Resource Information for Canadians is listed below.
