Can you refill a paintball tank from CO2 used for soda machine?

Yes, you can. its a little tricky but it can be done, the issue is you need liquid co2 in your paintball tank and if you just open up that co2 tank only gas will come out, so what you need to do is invert the tank before filling to make sure you get the liquid out of the soda co2 tank

Does a c02 tank have to be used upright?

A CO2 tank does not necessarily have to be upright. It depends if you want liquid CO2 or gaseous CO2. When I purchased a CO2 tank for a specific application, namely, CO2 snow cleaning, I had the option of getting a tank that either had a dipstick, that picked up liquid CO2 from the bottom of the tank, or one that had no dipstick so that it collected gas from the top of the tank. I selected a tank without the liquid pickup. So, my upright tank output gas. However, if I wanted liquid CO2, I would put my tank slightly upside down, and get liquid CO2. It is probably not recommended to run a commercial gas tank in a non-upright position. So, depending on what type of tank you have, and what type of output you want, the answer to your question literally is: depends. For farm and garden use, you are probably seeking gaseous output, and probably have a tank with no dipstick; based on these assumptions, yes, you will need to keep your tank upright.

How do you hook up co2 to a paintball gun?

Take your CO2 tank to a fill station and have it filled. Then look at your gun for the ASA (air source adaptor) which is underneath the grip, usually with a hose coming out of it. Screw the brass threads of the tank into the asa, and make sure it is tight. You will hear the CO2 enter the gun once you have turned it enough to open the valve. Your co2 is attached, and you can now play!

How can you tell if your Co2 tank is siphon type?

There are two ways to test if your Co2 tank is a siphon type tank. (1) Look on the side of the brass valve for either an "S" for siphon or "DT" for dip tube that would be used to draw the liquid from the botom of the tank. Either of these would indicate a shipon type valve. (2) If you do not find the "S" or "DT" on the valve there is a good chance that it is not a shipon tank. You can do a second test to verify this. With the tank upright and securely supported, open the valve and watch the discahrge. If it looks like snow and falls to the floor you have a siphon tank. If you get just gas and no snow, it is not a siphon tanks. Caution Co2 is very cool and and burn skin. Be sure to protect yourself when performing this test.
