Despite increasing costs we have maintained our air price at £3.50 since January 2014. In 2016 we purchased two brand new compressors to replace older machines in order that we can maintain standards and speed of filling at busy times. These, together with our existing big compressor give us in excess of 100 cubic feet per minute filling capacity and ensure that there are no long queues at busy times.
In the past three years there have been big increase in operating costs, primarily electricity but also lubricant and filter materials and we can no longer afford to subsidise the air price. We are increasing the price of a 10, 12 and 15Lair fill to £4 per fill with effect from 25th February 2017.
