    Gas Syndicates ?

    Does anybody know of any Syndicates in the South East for buying Helium & Oxygen ? We are only a small club & are getting crucified on the cost of a cylinder of He ( last one was 357 !!!!) . Oxygen is not a lot better in comparison either. I know Rich Stevenson used to run one but he gave that up years ago.
    TIA

    Don't know of a syndicate, but I am based in the south east (near Winchester) and keen to find a feasible way of getting trimix fills, so would be interested in chipping in for something (or other).

    That was including one month rental & their handling fee. No delivery as I collect .

    Wouldn't a syndicate benefit BSAC/other agency clubs? Even some LDSs

    As a bubble blower one feels guilty for consuming a quarter of a J in a single fill. Low volumes means higher prices.

    Just where do south-east divers get their happy gas fills?

    Hmmm... "handling fee"? Not sure how that covers the extra 160.

    I agree those are the prices except the price you have posted for O2 is a XL size ( which we all call a J) the helium price is for a V size which is a lot smaller.

    Vote with your feet and move to another supplier. Would air products or air liquid supply small clubs?

    OK. Didn't spot that. Assumed they were both J.

    Deep OC is really pricing itself out. People moan about the price of tyre gas

    There's a bit of a helium shortage going on at the minute and from what I am hearing some suppliers have tripled the price recently.
