Water Carbonators236 offers*
Water is made sparkling by adding carbon dioxide to water under pressure. The inflowing gas reacts to a small extent with the water and becomes carbonic acid. With this technique, you can also produce and enjoy sparkling water at home with the help of a water bubbler.
The application is very simple for all devices: You put your carafe filled with water into the water bubbler and press the button. This releases the carbon dioxide from the gas cartridge into the water.
It is important that you follow the instruction manual of your model, as the different models differ in some points. For example, you will need the right carafe for your model and also cartridges that are compatible with your device.
If you live in the UK, you can use tap water for your water sprinkler without worrying about your health. Tap water is clean drinking water in the UK and is subject to strict controls.
The carbonic acid in the water also inhibits the growth of germs. However, you should clean your device thoroughly on a regular basis. If you clean your device and also the carafes at regular intervals, you can look forward to a harmless enjoyment of sparkling water. Furthermore, you should observe the following tips:
- Do not pour syrup directly into the bottle.
- Clean bottles regularly.
- Do not drink directly from the carafes.
- Do not store water for too long.
- Keep water cool.
You wipe the surfaces of the device with a soft, damp cloth. There are special cleaning tabs for water carbonators, which you should use weekly. For cleaning with the tabs, please follow the instructions for use of the tabs.
Household remedies are also ideal for cleaning your water carbonator. For example, you can use commercially available citric acid every week to decalcify your water carbonator.
To do this, pour the amount of citric acid indicated on the packaging into the carafe and then fill it up to the fill line with warm tap water. Now place the carafe in the water carbonator and press the button once briefly.
Let the carafe rest in this position for ten to fifteen minutes to allow the citric acid to take effect. After cleaning, rinse the carafe thoroughly with water. Make sure that you store the carafe in a position where it dries well.
Commercially available descalers, such as those for coffee machines, are also suitable for cleaning.
The cylinders are available online and in retail stores. At pricehunter.co.uk you can also find cylinders from manufacturers such as SodaStream or Cago in different sizes.
Check with the manufacturer of your water carbonator to find out which cylinders are compatible with your device, as not just any cylinder will fit on every water sprayer.
Some offers of water sprinklers already include one or even two cylinders with the purchase of the device. Again, take a closer look so you know if you need to buy a cylinder separately or if you can get started with your water carbonator right away.
Basically, you can use any syrup you like for your water carbonator. The syrups for water carbonators are offered by different manufacturers.
You can also use the syrup of one manufacturer for the water carbonator of another manufacturer.
So you can experiment and try out which syrup tastes best to you. Sometimes there are tasting sets on offer that contain different syrup samples so that you can try out a few flavours.
