Ultimate Home Seltzer Water Machine | SodaStream KILLER!

When we stopped drinking soda 5 years ago, we wanted to make seltzer water at home. This was before the SodaStream was popular, so I made my own carbonated water maker that connected a co2 tank to a 2 liter bottle.

When we moved back to florida, we never bought another co2 tank, but we dreamed about having club soda on tap. Today we made that dream a reality. We bought a used soda fountain carbonator and installed it under our sink. Now we have unlimited seltzer water whenever we want!

    Love the experiment. What a great idea! For those of us who are considering embarking on a similar project, I wonder if you might give us a little update. How has the system worked for the past few months? What sorts of pressures have you experimented with for optimal bubbles?

    Also, I’ve read a few articles that seem to say that you need to chill the water down to the low 30’s to ensure that the co2 stays in the water. Like you I’m planning on using the system to dispense water one glass at a time, but I don’t want to go through all the trouble of an install to end up with barely bubbly water. How has your non-cooled system worked in a warm climate like Florida?

    Thanks again for the great resource and any advice you may be able to offer.

      Glad you asked. We posted an update in the YouTube description, but not here…Yes you’re right the water needs to be chilled or the soda water starts to loose it’s fizziness. There’s still some, but it tastes kind of flat. So we’ve actually disassembled this until we can make a DIY chiller. If you look up the “whiskey chiller” project on our channel that’s my solution. If the whiskey chiller works, I’ll use another dehumidifier to make a water chiller and get this back up and running.

      In the meantime, we’ve just been using the co2 tank directly into a 2 liter bottle. You can look up “carbonator caps.” Basically I made my own one of those back in 2009 and it’s still working great.

    Hey guys – I’m redoing my kitchen and thinking about putting one of these in. How did this turn out in the end?

    Did you ever post a parts list?
