Me Two! Got two slim cylinders that I am sure will be out of spec and do need to be filled.

Our local (Connecticut) gases and welding supply company replaced the valve and decertified our tank with no issues.
I think I saw a new tank of this type and size at West Marine, so that could also be an alternative.

for the central valley

Campora Propane, Stockton

For the bay area

Ideal RV and Trailer Supply, Redwood City

Both can be found online

I didn't mention Ideal in my original post but they are knowledgeable and non-bureaucratic. They try to help as opposed to trying to obstruct.

Yes, I think any big propane supplier will be good. Many have minimum charges so be aware that a couple gals of propane is likely to cost $15 or so.

Thanks for all the great information. I'm going to see the guy tomorrow and if he hasn't done the job I'll use one of your contacts.
Yes it is all a cash grab.

Big surprise. They claim the valves in them are illegal in Canada now and they can't recertify them. Guess we'll be heading to WA with them to see if we can find someone more helpful. Joys of living in BC.

The old valves are illegal in the USA as well. That's why you need to change it.

I just Googled "replacement OPD propane valve" and see an OPD valve is available online for $26.58. In the same Google search results was a website describing the replacement procedure. Could be DYI.

All propane tanks need to be hydro tested every 12 years, so they should be able to handle that.
