We have the majority of Calor cylinders in stock - please call to check availability.

You are now able to complete CRAs for new cylinder issues for 13kg and 18kg cylinders. There are now six-cylinder sizes you can complete new issues for: 5kg and 13kg Patio, 6kg, 13kg, 18kg and 19kg cylinders.

Remaining cylinder sizes

In November all remaining cylinder sizes (7kg, 15kg)  will also become available for new CRA issue and no longer on one-for-one exchange. We’ll be in touch soon to confirm the date.


In any other cylinder size you must have an empty cylinder (from the correct group) to exchange
