When you refill your own propane cylinders, you have an obligation to ensure you meet all of the critical safety propane requirements. By choosing propane cylinder exchange, you can avoid all of these hassles. Simply leave your empty propane cylinders and we will exchange them with full aluminum propane cylinders.
