    Keep checking with the supply houses. Every now and then they do a cylinder exchange program around here. They take old bottles full or empty and give you a new or certifed bottle.

    For every 30lbs of r22 we exchange they sell us a virgin drum for $200 vs the $485 to buy a single drum. They don't care if the tank is out of date or not.

    Never tried it but would a propane distributor test recovery tanks? They have to pressure certify their tanks so they should be able to do it.

    The company that I used to work for was going to have one of our supply houses retest ours until they found out you could buy new tanks cheaper than the test. I dont know what you are paying to retest but they wanted something like $60.
