Many people have gas grills and Mosquito Magnets. You can get the propane tanks you use re-filled at Harbor Garden Center.
You can also take those tanks to a propane tank exchange place and swap your tanks for one of their tanks.
Swapping out your tanks is not a good idea. The commonly used gas grill tank holds 20 lbs. of propane.
If you take it to a tank exchange, they will give you a tank with 15 lbs. of propane in the tank. The price you pay for the 15 lbs. is, in many cases, what we charge you for 20 lbs. of propane. If you swap your tank, you may also get an older tank that has been re-tested. Re-tested tanks are only allowed to be filled for 5 years from the test date. If you have a new tank, it is allowed to be filled for 12 years from the manufacturing date. So, let’s add it all up; you can swap your tank and only get a tank that is ¾ full. You may be getting an old tank that can only be refilled for 5 years or less. Or, you can bring your tank into Harbor Garden Center and get a full 20 lb. refill. If you have any propane left in your tank when you bring it to us, we will weigh your tank, figure out how much is left in the tank and only charge you for the amount of gas we put into the tank. Let’s say you are having a big cook out and you want to get your tank topped off.
If we weigh the tank and you have 10 lbs. of gas left in the tank, we will only charge you for the 10 lbs. you need to fill the tank. Some places would charge you for a full 20 lbs! When you need to have your propane tanks filled, it only makes sense to have them re-filled at Harbor Garden Center.
If you own a motor home, we can fill the tank on your motor home too.
