Cylinder refill agreement
When buying a gas bottle from us for the first time, you’ll be subject to a new cylinder refill agreement costing from £39.99, depending which of the four groups your gas bottle is in. If you do not have a gas bottle to exchange, this cost will be automatically added to your order when you checkout. The charge will be added for each bottle you purchase without an empty counterpart to exchange or if the bottle is not within the same group as your previous policy.
How to connect a 4.5kg Butane gas bottle
This gas bottle takes a regulator that screws on to the valve outlet—both have a connecting nut that features a black sealing washer.
Check the valve hand wheel is off by turning it clockwise and then take off the protective black cap (keep it for future use) Check the black sealing washer on the regulator for damage before connecting—replace it if it’s faulty Fit the connecting nut (left hand thread) to the bottle using a suitable spanner; tighten it firmly, but don’t over-tighten it as this can damage the washer. When you need to use gas, turn the valve hand wheel anti-clockwise
How to connect 7kg, 12kg and 15kg Butane gas bottles
These cylinders have a 21mm valve and should only be used with 21mm regulators. To connect, just turn the orange safety cap so that the arrow is pointing to the gap in the shroud, then remove the orange cap by pulling the lanyard out, and then upwards. Avoid using tools for this, and just leave the cap hanging.
Check that the black sealing washer is fitted inside the cylinder valve Make sure the regulator switch is in the disconnect position (3 o’clock position) Fit the 21mm regulator as the manufacturer’s instructions suggest. When you need to use gas, turn the switch anticlockwise to the ‘on’ position
IMPORTANT: If the regulator on/off switch gets stuck when turning the supply on, it means the regulator has not been connected correctly. If this happens, disconnect it and follow the instructions to reconnect it.
Turn the regulator switch clockwise to the off position. Replace the orange safety cap onto the empty bottle valve
