Default NANO refill Station??

I need to refill my NANO bottle, where can i go??

There are only two scuba shops in town, one said he wont rick messing up his compressor , nothing over 3600psi, the other said they will only fill scuba bottles..

I haven't tried the paint ball shops, they will not be open till the weekend.

Is there anything else i can do??


Does anyone have a list of scuba shops accros the US that will refill NANO bottle? ( maybe someone should start a list of places that will refill )

Just checked with the local fire station, and they wont fill anyone but there own, liability reasons. But they do fill to 4500psi.

I bought this kit and i cant get it refilled, lol..

Just go to 3600psi. the only reason for 4500psi is for supporting bigger shots as the 3000 series is 3000psi and supports 200/250hp hits. the 4500psi can go to 550hp. At least that's the way i understand it. The added pressure is to refill/repressure a nitrous bottle that is empting really fast, so if your not real big on your shot 3600psi should work fine.

300 most of the time, 350 if needed for now.

I'll keep it under consideration though

That's exaqctly why the blanket rule is to put a fresh filled NANO bottle in everytime we put a fresh n2o bottle in, that covers all shots. Just speculation, but I would bet that 3600psi would be real close to filling the needs of a 300 shot, but don't know for sure. what i will do though is to figure the math out so we would know if a partial bottle would be good enough for anothe n2o bottle? Meaning, say i have a 4500psi kit and am only running a 250shot, well I bet one NANO fill would do two n2o bottles, any one want to bet? lol

If you have the 4500psi system it needs to be filled to 4500psi no matter what hp. The reason is volume of air vs. volume of nitrous. If you only fill it to 3600psi it will not drain the bottle like we say it will.

PM your address and ill find a place for you. Thanks

Yea that's what we need to do is have a list going where all the available shops are at. We have one currently going for nitrous refills at nitrousforum. So maybe getting one started for NANO fills would be good.

How is it that a 3000psi 3000series kit can drain a bottle, and a 4500psi bottle filled only to 3600psi can not? Is it because the 3000series is a larger bottle? My 4500 series kits came with 4000psi in them?

Now a 4500 with only 3600psi would not empty a bottle, so is that the only down fall? I only ask these questions so we can all have a full understanding. I have talked to guys that have used the same NANO fill on two bottles, maybe they don't realize yet that they are not emptying the 2nd bottle like they could? But at this point they claim that it worked OK.

Myself, I haven't used my 1st bottles, however, at the small cost of topping off your NANO bottle it just seems a no brainer to do it each and every time we refill or top off our Nitrous bottles.

I think it is important to understand the down falls of a partial NANO bottle. Most strips have nitrous refills available, but not air/nitrogen. So i see many whom may want to top their N2O bottle off to make sure they make it through an important pass, and knowing if the NANO will still work at a partial fill is needed. I believe it will in fact be beneficial over leaving it disconnected.

UPDATE-

I went to a local paintball shop, they filled it no problem. It took about 30 seconds, and only cost me $4.00... I had to wait for it too cool down then he added more to get the needed 4500psi. I was surprised it didn't take as long as filling a nitrous bottle.


So check with your local paint ball shop, most have to fill carbon fiber bottles to that psi for the paintballer, so they should be able to fill ours.
