Are there any glass bottles that are compatible with your carbonator?

In order to achieve the slim profile of our Carbonator, PET bottles are currently the only option. Glass bottles would need a protective casing, due to risk of explosion. For safety reasons, please only use our carbonator with the original PET bottle.

Shop our Aarke PET bottles for a non-toxic, BPA free option!

My machine has weak gas flow. What should I do?

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.

Another cause of weak flow could be a blocked nozzle. While this is an easy fix, it requires some additional instruction—drop us a note at and we’ll help you out.

If neither of these issues seem to be the case for you, check that the gasket is intact and in place. Instructions for locating the gasket can be found here. If your gasket seems to be missing, contact customer support at

Which types of gas cylinder work with the Aarke Carbonator?

Our machine is compatible with AGA, Sodastream, 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.

Sodabär cylinders are no longer compatible with our machines due to their updated design.

My Carbonator isn’t making the buzzing noise anymore. Is there something wrong?

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.

I can see water spurting from the machine, what does that mean?

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.

Is there any way to increase the level of carbonation in my water?

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!
