Do I need a special water system in order to use a SodaStream Sparkling Water Maker?

No. You may use any type of water that you typically drink at home. However, we do recommend using COLD water to achieve the best results.

How long will my sparkling water last before going flat?

The hermetic seal on the caps of our carbonating bottles keeps your sparkling water or flavoured sparkling water from going flat as quickly as ordinary store-bought beverages! Science is so cool. If you make sure to close the cap tightly and keep the bottle in the refrigerator, your sparkling water should remain fizzy and fresh for up to two weeks. Score!

Can I re-carbonate a drink that has gone flat?

If you're drinking plain sparkling water, the answer is yes! Just make sure that the water reaches the fill line on the carbonating bottle. If you've already prepared a drink with flavour, then unfortunately the answer is no. Only water can be carbonated in Sparkling Water Makers.

Can I add anything other than Sparkling Drink Mix to my bubbly water?

You sure can - AFTER your water has been carbonated. Once your water has been carbonated, it's time to get creative! We love adding fresh fruit, juice, herbs, alcohol, and anything else that tickles your fancy. Our Sparkling Drink Mixes and flavor essences have been specifically formulated to flavor sparkling water made with your SodaStream Sparkling Water Maker.

Warning: Only water should be carbonated in the SodaStream Sparkling Water Maker. You risk damaging your Sparkling Water Maker, not to mention making a big bubbly mess! The warranty is invalidated if you carbonate any liquid other than water in your Sparkling Water Maker. Stick with plain, cold water and then add any one of our fantastic flavors - AFTER the water has been carbonated!

Why does the carbonating bottle have an expiration date?

Since plastic degrades over time and the bottle has to withstand recurring pressure from carbonation, it cannot be used forever. The expiration date on the bottle must be checked and new bottles purchased as soon as the former expires. The plastic bottles must also be replaced if put in the dishwasher, exposed to a heat source, or if they have become scratched. All components of carbonating bottles except for the seal inside the cap are recyclable. Check with your local recycling authority for more information

Are SodaStream’s products recyclable?

Of course! Many of SodaStream’s consumable packages are completely recyclable, once they’ve outlived their useful lives. Remember that carbonating bottles are reusable up to 3 years before they need to be replaced, and Crystal™ glass carafes may be used indefinitely (provided they remain free from cracks or other damage).

How do I clean my carb/ fuse bottles? 

Rinse carbonating bottles with cold or lukewarm water. Only glass carbonating bottles marked 'Dishwasher-Safe' may be rinsed with hot water. If needed, use a mild dish soap liquid and a soft bristled brush to clean. Be sure to rinse thoroughly before using.

Are any of your syrup flavours vegan? 

Yes! The Soda Press Co. range is vegan. Soda Press syrups are also Gluten Free, Organic, Non GMO & Allergen free (as per the Regulation EU 1169/2011 guidelines).
