Force-E ran out last weekend but all 3 stores got O2 late last week. Currently they have Nitrox banked in all 3 stores. Can’t speak for future supply.

Ouch! Glad I filled our 4 tanks right after our Labor Day swims.

On a good note, Force-E was running a half-price sale all weekend on air/nitrox fills and on 10-fill nitrox cards. I picked up 10 more nitrox fills for my digital fill card for $50 plus tax. Where else can you get $5 nitrox fills??!!!

Force-E had nitrox all weekend and seemed pretty confident that they would be able to get more going forward.


Oh wow. Missed it. Great deal!

when where you in Maui?
here in Hawaii there has been a ingress in Covid and the governor on Monday up'ed the covid restrictions where you now need to show you vax card to eat at an indoor restaurants, maybe all the O2 is being diverted to the hospitals
Just got back on Monday; arrived a week earlier on 9/5.

So our atmosphere is composed of ~79% Nitrogen and ~21% Oxygen and we're now low on both of those things?

When demand increases it is not easy to keep up with current equipment, it takes a considerable investment to increase the capacity.
