i will keep my eyes open for you.

you can get that tank re-valved but it would probably be just as cheap to get a new one if you can find them.

Takes a lot to find them on the CTC website... but here is the link. Just keep plugging in store addresses until you find one. Last year Richmond Hill had some

Ya, what Wayne said. The new Richmond Hill CTC at Major MacKenzie and Woodbine had them last year.

Thanks for the replies. I had checked out the local CT (Thanks for the link Wayne - went to one of the stores that has inventory and was told they didn't have any :dunno: )and Home Hardware without any luck. Have had good luck at the Whitby location in the past, will check that out tomorrow.

 

Thanks again!!

Our Indian Reservations will refill propane into just about anything here in NYS at about half the cost.

Home Hardware carries 5LB tanks #6422-980 for $44.99 and 8LB tanks #6422-981 for $59.99, probably don't stock them but can get them for you within a week,just quote the number for what ever size tank you want.

BTW did you ever buy gasoline on our side of the border... :whistling:

I wonder if this will work to fill a 5LB'er from a 20LB?

You need to cut the right hand fitting off and get the fitting the same as the left hand one off of an "OLD" bbq and put it on with a clamp.That's what I use to fill mine,Your 5 LB tank should have a bleed screw in the valve also.It takes about 3 minutes to fill a tank.

Some people shouldn't be advertising their follies when it comes to doing stupid things, go to a propane refill station and if not saving yourself, maybe save the unknowing that's too close for comfort.

Thanks again for all the info. Ended up going to Whitby CT the other night a found a 5 pounder. Went to purge and fill it at the Oshawa CT and the valve leaked. Went into see if they could find the ones they couldn't the other night and they had moved them out and on display. Grabbed one and when filled it leaked as well. Manager gets all the other ones from the display and they start to test them. 3 leaked (+1 from the other location) before we found a good one. Monday morning or Friday afternoon built tanks? Oh well I'll have heat in the hut. Hopefully this one will not leak as time goes on.

 

Also managed to grab a Mac Coupler for my 1 pounders from Lowe's if anyone is looking for them.

 

Thanks again.

That's nuts that they leaked like that. Shoddy workmanship for sure, and on a propane tank no less :o:blink:

Mine from CTC in Peterborough leaked too. Yet to test the replacement. For that kind of $ I expect safety and then some.

    • Cleaning out built in gas tank

      Just reading about ethanol and phase separation in boat gas tanks. I’ve had  no problems and want to keep it that way. I’m guessing,  after 11 yrs, that I’ve got some water and gunk in the bottom if my Lund’s tank.  Should I get this checked? How and who would do this? I have a fuel “Reserve” setting that I can use if I run out of gas. It’s just a lower pickup in the gas tank. It’s more likely to pick up crap I’m guessing. Will stay away from using it. What say you Guys about a cleanout?

    • Bait Tank

      Got the semi portable bait tank up and running (semi portable?), is that once filled with water it's not coming out of the truck; until drained. LOL Its been going now for a week (on my deck in direct sun), keeping the water temp right around 50° mark. Put some water conditioner in the tank, to neutralize the chlorine, that's in the city water. Bought a scoop of the small (sacrificial) minnows from  the bait shop. Put them in the tank and so far after 36 hours, there's not one floater. They're a

    • Electric vs Propane Water Heater

      Once again I am reaching out to this great group of knowledge, as some may remember I am building a house in the Eugenia area and its time to finish my plumbing. As I have no knowledge of propane vs electricity water heaters I am looking for some feedback, I was surprised that propane tanks are special order at all stores, even the ones out side of the city, but also the fact that a propane one is about 3 times the cost. Does going with a propane unit justify itself in the long run?

    • Bait Tank

      I have means of keeping a large amount of minnows alive, while transporting them and at camp for the week we'll be there. My question is, am I and our group allowed to keep our legal amount of bait fish (minnows) in the same tank? What we're thinking of is 30 dozen minnows split between 6 guys; which is still below an individualizes legal amount. Any thoughts? Dan.
