A fill station is a bulk CO2 tank, a fill hose and a scale. They are used by trained air smiths and paintball field employees to refill empty Co2 tanks. First the tanks are purged of all remaining Co2, then carefully refilled and weighed. If you are not trained on how to do this, do not attempt, at the risk of breaking the tanks burst disk or damage to you by the extremely cold gas.

Where can i refill my CO2 tank?

sure, gennerally there are 30lb co2 tanks and 50lb tanks that you can fill from, you will also need a fill station and instruction from a air smith on how to use it, so it is fairly expensive to own, but what a lot of people do it buy a fill station and then rent a co2 tank for the day from a welding shop or another place that will do it (scuba shops sometimes, propane stations, you just have to do a little searching) for a 50lb tank i think it was around $30-$40 so have everyone pitch in a few bucks and you are covered for the day
