Where to Buy Carbon Dioxide (CO2) For SodaStream

As a SodaStream owner, I thought about the best way to minimise the cost associated with refills.
They run at about $20 per SodaStream bottle which is 400g of CO2. (which I go through in a month..)
There are kits you can buy (like this http://www.ibrew.com.au/products/freedom-one-soda-stream-ada... ) that can fit a standard
Australian gas bottle. Looking up BOC Gas I figured I could get 12Kg of CO2 for about $50. So I headed out
today and that's what I got. I also got a bit of a surprise; I found out, purely by chance when asking about a larger size,
that I will be charged 'rent' for the gas bottle. (And it wasn't cheap, at about $0.50 per day!)
Unfortunately for me, that means that the expecting 'savings' I would have got from say $240 per year with SodaStream Vs
$50 per year with BOC didn't quite materialise.
So I'm wondering, Where do OzBargainers get CO2 for cheap?
(I'm in Sydney BTW)
