Frequently Asked Questions - Operating Your Home Soda Maker

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

The soda maker should be cleaned with a soft, damp cloth in lukewarm water using a non-abrasive cleanser if necessary. Be sure to remove the soda carbonator before cleansing. The machine and the PET bottles are not dishwasher-safe.

No. Only water should be carbonated in the SodaStream drink makers. You risk damaging your drinks maker, not to mention making a big fizzy mess! The money-back guarantee and the warranty are both invalidated if you carbonate any liquid other than water in your drinks maker. Stick with plain cold water and adding any one of our fantastic flavors - after the water has been carbonated!

If you're drinking plain soda, the answer is yes. However, if you already prepared a drink with soda syrup, the answer is no. Since only water can be carbonated in the homemade soda machine, you cannot re-carbonate once you've added syrup.

Syrup and MyWater flavors have been specially formulated to work with your home soda maker. However, some SodaStream customers like to add fresh fruit juice to their fizzy water instead of syrup. This is perfectly fine - as long as you try this after the water has been carbonated. Mix it in a glass or pitcher for best results.

One of the great benefits of using a SodaStream drinks maker is that you control the level of fizz in your soft drinks. In general, you should press the carbonating button several times until you hear the LOUD BUZZ that indicates carbonation. Keep going until you achieve the level of fizz that you like! Three LOUD BUZZES provide average carbonation. Use one buzz for very light carbonation (good for fruit flavors) or five buzzes for strong carbonation (works well for colas and other dark syrups.)

SodaStream home drinks makers operate without batteries, electricity or plumbing, making them an energy-efficient home appliance and an ideal accessory to take on the road in your RV or onboard your boat. The carbonation in your soda is purely a result of the compressed gas stored in the SodaStream carbonator.
