Sodastream carbonaton adaptor - anyone use it?

Hi friends,

I hope everyone is doing well. I have a question about my Sodastream.

I have a Sodastream Source, which I primarily use to make carbonated water, without any flavorings. It uses the 60L carbonator bottle.

I am wondering if anyone has any experience in using the after market adapters which allow the Sodastream carbonator bottle to be refilled (as opposed to exchanged for a new cannister)?

I am running through my carbonators quite often, and looking for a cheaper alternative if any.

Also, while I have your attention...I right now have two carbonating bottles. I want to use these to carbonate the water and then transfer it to another bottle which will hold the carbonation well, so that I can keep some chilled carbonated water in the fridge.

Any suggestions on what type of bottle I should use?

I appreciate your help as always

  1. Hi Desidude -

    A few nearby were using adapters a few years ago to try and save a few coins. After the thrill was gone, they gave up.

    The problem is finding a sanitary or hygienic-grade source of carbonation for the refills. You don't want to necessarily use a source from the paint ballers or gasoline station, etc.
