The Safefill cylinder was designed to be safe and easy to refill.
All the issues identified by the industry were looked into and and Safefill developed a product that’s so easy to use; has no complicated hoses or attachments that could be incorrectly used; has an integral overfill protection device (OPD); a secondary back check valve in case you forget to close the valve and tamper-proof fittings that mean gas can only come out of the cylinder when it is attached to an appliance.
The three bottles from Safefill are all significantly lighter than standard LPG cylinders.
There are no complicated extras to buy or fit as Safefill comes as a complete, one-size-fits all solution. The Safefill translucent bottle allows you to see how much gas is left - so no more estimating, and the automatic overfill protection device means it’s impossible to fill beyond 80%, ensuring complete safety.
The other advantage of a Safefill bottle, is that you are the owner. You can only "rent" a Calor bottle, and you never own it, ensuring that you cannot sell it on. Whereas, whenever you have finished with your Safefill bottle, you can sell it on, and helps to repay for itself.
You can fill from empty or just top up before leaving on that weekend away.
All that is required is a standard Propane screw-type regulator, or a Propane pigtail. The bottle has the same POL union fittings as the standard Calor bottles. Firstly, the Initial Cost is a lot less. From £153 you get a Safefill bottle that is almost identical to a Calor bottle. This means that your regulator or gas hoses do NOT need replacing or updating. For some, other re-fillable gas systems to be fitted, special hoses, changeover heads, a filling kit, and adapters have to be fitted onto the vehicle. The systems should be fitted by a Qualified Engineer, meaning Labour costs have to be considered.
Also, when your Safefill bottle is empty, you remove the bottle from the vehicle, and take it to the closest Petrol Station or LPG Supplier. However, in a built in system, you can not remove the bottle. Instead, the vehicle has to be taken to the Petrol Station or LPG Supplier. This means that before you have to fill up your bottle, you have to drain your water system, put away your awning, and pack up.
No adapter is needed for filling in the UK and Netherlands, but a few are needed for Europe.
There is a specific one for just Spain, which costs £25.
An Acme adapter is for Belgium, Germany, Ireland, Lichtenstein, Luxumburg and Switzerland. This one costs £15.
The Dish adapter can be used in Austria, Bosnia & Herzogavina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Rep, Denmark, Estonia, France, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania, Macadonia, Malta, Montenegro, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, San Marino, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden and Switzerland. This one is also £15.
We also have a LPG autogas rig, so we can fill your new bottles, and also show you how easy they are to refill in person.
