An 870 Medical Oxygen Tank requires a prescription first. Once you have a prescription you can go to a local home-care pharmacy and to get an 870 Medical oxygen tank. Ask for a size between 20-40 cu/ft. An oxygen tank this size will be about 5”x18”. We recommend the 870 tank over the 540.
A 540 Industrial Oxygen Tank does not require a prescription. You can find these at companies such as AirGas or Praxair. Simply request a new tank between 20-40 cu/ft.
