No. The glass bottle is designed to be used solely with the Carbonator Pro. The glass bottle is not compatible with Carbonator 3.
The reason is that any product involving the use of gas and pressure systems in combination with glass, requires a chamber covering the glass bottle during the carbonation process. The Carbonator 3 does not have a chamber (since it is not necessary for a sparkling water makers developed for a PET bottle). A glass bottle should never be used in the Carbonator 3!
At the moment, gas cylinders are not included with the purchase of the Aarke Carbonator.
Our machine is compatible with AGA, Sodastream (except for Sodastream Quick Connect), Linde, SodaMagic, Vikingsoda, and other standard 400-425g/60l cylinders for sparkling water makers.
Please note that standards in Australia and New Zealand are different, and Carbonators sold in these countries are not compatible with EU, US, or Asian cylinders. For these machines, we recommend Australian Sodastream and Soda King cylinders.
400-425g/60L gas cylinders are widely available on Amazon.
Depending on your location, you can also buy and refill these gas cylinders at your local supermarket.
The Carbonator 3 features an updated internal safety valve system and new stainless steel accents like the precision nozzle, CNC-machined from a single piece of steel to produce a smooth and controlled spray beam.
You can find more details in our blog article Carbonator 2 vs Carbonator 3.
No outlet needed--our carbonators are cordless and electricity-free.
If you use extremely cold water with your Carbonator, the water can react with the gas to cause a build-up of ice at the nozzle. To remove the ice, pump the lever up and down a few times without fully releasing.
There can be other causes of weak flow that need some additional instructions—drop us a note and we’ll help you out.
A lack of the buzzing noise doesn’t necessarily indicate that something is broken. Occasionally you won’t hear the sound due to heat, cold, or different pressure. If you still hear the safety valve opening and air releasing from under the drip tray, your water is still fully carbonating.
Always be sure to fill to the marked water line on the PET bottle. Otherwise, the water could end up inside the machine. Over time, this might damage the carbonator.
You can pump the lever an unlimited number of times to achieve more carbonated water. We recommend 1-3 pumps for best carbonation results. Cheers!
No, PET bottles are currently the only option. Water carbonation in a glass bottle would require a solid case protecting the bottle in case of breakage (due to improper use, defect, crack or anything compromising the material).
Glass bottles should never be used in any sparkling water maker that doesn’t have a protective chamber covering the bottle during carbonation. This applies to our Carbonator 2 and 3, which is why it’s crucial not to use any other bottles than the PET bottle provided. Shop our Aarke PET bottles for a non-toxic, BPA free option!
Yes. This is true that in some markets you can now find the Sodastream CO2 cylinder, which can produce up to 80L of sparkling water. It is still compatible with our Carbonator if its volume is indicated as 425g.
However, please note that if you prefer medium to high level of carbonation, the 80L canister will still provide you with approximately 60L of sparkling water.
Yes. At the end of its lifetime you can unscrew the bottom metal part, remove the cap and recycle the components separately.
Our PET bottle has an expiration date for safety reasons. By its expiration date, the bottle’s plastic may be weakened from use and should be replaced.
Yes. We only use food-grade, virgin PET. This means that our bottles are non-toxic, BPA-free and do not contain any harmful chemicals. Our bottles have also been tested and approved according to the German LFGB standard, California Prop 65 and FDA CFR 21.
Though the Aarke PET Bottle is engineered to be extremely durable, it can only withstand a maximum temperature of 40 degrees Celsius. Most dishwashers operate at extremely high temperatures, placing the structural integrity of the bottle at risk.
Therefore, the bottle should be washed manually and never placed in the dishwasher.
The best way to clean your Aarke PET Water Bottle is by using clean lukewarm water and a mild detergent. If using a dishwashing brush, please make sure it is intended for cleaning plastic bottles.
Once washed, store the bottle with its cap off.
Our bottle has a special marked filling line to help avoid excess water flowing into the spill tray during carbonation.
The capacity of the bottle up to the filling line is 80 cl or 800 ml and this is how much water can be carbonated at once. The capacity of the whole bottle equals approximately one litre.
The capacity of the Small PET Water Bottle up to the filling line is 45 cl or 450 ml and this is how much water can be carbonated at once. The capacity of the whole bottle equals 65cl or 650 ml.
