GREAT NEWS FOR BOTTLED GAS USERS … here is what you have been waiting for … a barcode which guarantees you pay only $15 for a 9kg refill at any of the 30 Anaconda stores listed above*.
Download this barcode to your phone or tablet, or print off a copy to show to staff when requesting a refill.
At the majority of SWAP outlets, bottles described as “3.75 kg”, “4.0 kg” and “4.5 kg” with a POL fitting cost as much as $25 to swap, but at Anaconda these bottles cost only $15 to refill.
Consider this fact also … there is no such thing as a “swap only” metal gas bottle. Even bottles that came from “swap cages” outside hardware stores, service stations etc., can be refilled … IF … the following conditions are true:
The first proviso for all refills in every State is that a bottle must be 10 years or younger in age. For example, as the message you are now reading was posted on 23/07/2018, the date stamp on the bottle must be “07/2008” or later.
The second proviso is that the bottle must be in good condition.
Store staff could face a hefty fine for breaching these provisos, so their decision as to age and condition is final.
Severe weather conditions and staff availability may also affect when refills are done.
Remember this … you ALWAYS have the choice to go elsewhere if you are not happy with the service and conditions we have worked so hard to achieve for you. Please don’t abuse the staff.
