Since the bottle has to withstand recurring pressure from carbonation, it cannot be used forever. The expiration date on the bottle must be checked and new bottles purchased as soon as the former expires. The bottles must also be replaced if put in the dishwasher, exposed to a heat source, or if they have become scratched. All components of carbonating bottles are recyclable. Check with your local recycling authority for more information.
Carbonating bottles may be cleaned in warm water with a bottle brush and regular dish-washing liquid if necessary. Please do not place carbonating bottles in the dishwasher, as exposure to extreme heat can weaken the integrity of the bottles. Bottles stay cleanest when immediately filled with fresh water and returned to your refrigerator. Plus, you'll always have cold water on hand when you're ready for your next bottle of soda!
Only SodaStream bottles are recommended for use with your soda maker. Damages caused by or during the use of non SodaStream bottles or Cylinders will not be covered by your warranty. SodaStream will not be responsible for any damage caused to products made by another company.
You can, but the other bottle cap may not have the special rubber seal that helps keep SodaStream soda so fresh. Please call Customer Support for replacement caps, or add an extra set, or two to your next online order.
