As a start, chill your water in advance. The colder the water you have without using ice, the better it will carbonate. This due to CO2 reacting at its best when mixed with water at colder temperatures.
While your water is chilling in the refrigerator, you can assemble your soda machine. Make sure it is placed on a flat, sturdy, level surface.
Make sure your machine is sitting perfectly upright, if not, you may encounter some problems with using it.
2. Prepare Your Carbonator
The next step is to load your carbonator into the machine. Make sure to dispose of the plastic seal found on the top part of your carbonator. After your canister is good to go, dispose of your SodaStream machine’s back cover.
3. Inserting of the Carbonator Canister

5. Resting and Removal of Water
Once the carbonatation of your drink is done, simply leave your water bottle be in your machine and unbothered for about 45 seconds. This would allow a resting period in order for the CO2 to become entirely infused together with the water, enhancing carbonation.
If not, you might be opening the bottle too early and this would allow a big amount of CO2, that is not yet mixed together with your water to escape.
6. Adding Flavor
The last step, if you prefer to do so, is adding flavour to the water that has been carbonated. You can also simply add any kinds of syrup or flavour that you would want, In addition, you can even add sugar, honey, or other types of sweetener if the flavour is not sweet enough for your taste.
