6. Return Policy:

All cylinders ordered and delivered through Atco Energy (Atcogas) or its merchant will always have a seal around the valve of the cylinder. This is your guarantee that the cylinder has passed a final check in our filling process and is the correct weight and in a safe working condition.

Atco Energy does not refund stock that was correctly invoiced and delivered. Should a cylinder/refill have been ordered and subsequently discovered to be the wrong size Atco Energy will exchange the cylinders for the correct size as long as the original cylinder still has its plastic seal around the valve intact.
