I’ve just returned from filling my new Safefill cylinder for the first time at my local Morrisons supermarket. It proved to be a much easier operation than I had envisaged.
I had to follow the instructions on the pump regarding attaching the pump’s nozzle to the cylinder, it’s a bayonet push on action followed by pushing a locking leaver into place. I then had to keep a button on the pump pushed until the required 14 litres were pumped in to the cylinder. I did remembered to close the valve on the cylinder before releasing the filler nozzle but there was still a release of a small amount of gas on disconnection.
The cost of £7.83 compares well with the £26 that the gas would have cost in a pre-filled 6 kg CalorLite® gas bottle, a considerable saving of about £18. Only another 8 refills to recover the cost of the Safefill cylinder, but at least I can now easily see how much liquid is left in the cylinder.
When my CalorLite® bottle is completely empty I shall return it and claim the balance of the deposit back, that should pay for another refill.
