    Can't help with what you need but looks like you did well for yourself, someone dropped a clanger by the sound of it.

    I am not suprised the manager was not happy. If it was a CALOR dealer the firm would be charged 50% over the hire charge to replace the bottle into stock.

    You got a good deal.

    Either go to gaslow website to buy connectors (you need an LPG filler mechanism) or best bet is to go to a Gaslow distributor - I paid £115 for the smaller size bottle a couple of years ago so you got a bargain!!!:thumb::thumb:

    re Gaslow 'Freebie'

    :Smile:

    Well done.....BUT do have a quick look on the bottle [ bottom rim - from memory] it will have a date stamp and number.

    Again from memory [only a few months ago,but getting even older...By the minute] :Doh: I supplied these nos. to Gaslow to get a 'Certificate of conformity' from them ...AND I think the life span is 10 yrs.

    What happens after the expired date has been reached I am not sure., probably needs RE testing OR REnewing.

    BUT do check with GASLOW.....I have found them most helpful:thumb:
