1) Purpose of the Cylinder Refill Agreement
In consideration for the Refill Agreement Charge, the company agrees to exchange the cylinder(s) included in your order with supplies of Gas (“Gas”) during the currency of this agreement. The company will fulfil its obligation to refill the Cylinder by providing the user with a pre-filled Cylinder in exchange for the empty Cylinder but reserves the right to refill the Cylinder by any other means. A cylinder(s) can only be exchanged for a similar replacement cylinder(s), within the same category as the current cylinder otherwise a new cylinder refill agreement is required. Please see our exchange policy for further details about exchanging cylinders.

2) Future supplies of gas
In entering into this agreement the user also understands that he/she will pay additional sums at the prevailing rate for the gas contained in the cylinder and for all future supplies of gas as and when the cylinder is refilled in accordance with Condition 1.

3) Cylinders remain the property of the company at all times and may only be filled by the company
The company makes the cylinder(s) available to the user as a means of safely transporting and storing the gas supplied. This agreement is not a rental agreement and it does not provide the user with title in the cylinder. The user will not part with possession or control of the cylinder(s) (other than to a CALOR outlet) nor claim to have any rights that conflict with this agreement, nor create or purport or attempt to create any agency or bailment in relation to the cylinder(s) or to the User’s obligations.

In any case of wilful damage or breach of this agreement the company may repossess cylinders immediately and the User by entering into this agreement irrevocably authorises the company or their agent to enter on the user’s property for these purposes and in that event, this agreement is terminated. The company may charge the User for loss of use of a cylinder, in the event of loss or damage to the Cylinder but this charge shall not give the User any rights in the cylinder. In that event, unless the company, at its discretion, decides otherwise, the User will forfeit any rights or benefits conferred upon them by this agreement.
