The List of Places That Offer SodaStream Carbonator Exchanges

SodaStream devices are small appliances that allow you to make carbonated water from the comfort of your home. You can even purchase flavors to add to your sparkling water or turn it into soda. All SodaStream machines come with a carbonator, or cylinder filled with carbon dioxide. The CO2 is what carbonates the drink — adding “bubbles” to plain water.

SodaStream carbonators come in different sizes, but the standard size is 60 liters. New carbonators cost about $30, while an exchange costs about $15. If you have a cylinder that SodaStream has discontinued, such as the 130-liter, you can exchange it for a 60-liter cylinder — also for around $15. The 60-liter cylinder fits all SodaStream machines.

Below, we have the list of places where you can exchange your empty SodaStream carbonator. It’s important to note that while the retail chains listed confirmed that they exchange SodaStream cylinders, some locations may not offer the service or may be out of carbonators. In addition, most stores only offer refills on the 60-liter carbonators. If you’re looking to exchange another size, give the store a call first to find out if it has other sizes available.

Here’s where to exchange SodaStream cartridges.

      Hello, David! Unfortunately, SodaStream discontinued the 130-liter cylinder earlier this year, so you will not be able to exchange your cylinders for the same size unless you find a store near you that has leftover 130-liter stock. However, you can exchange your cylinders for 60-liter cylinders at any SodaStream exchange location; this will cost around $15. SodaStream states that the 60-liter cylinder will fit all of its machines. We have updated our article to include this information.
