I want one.  Does anyone have one?  Pros and cons?  (We drink a ton of seltzer at the house, and occasionaly soda, but I don't generally keep soda in the house).

LOL, I'm reading reviews, it seems like something I want.  I'm wondering what this trading of the co2 units and Bed Bath and Beyond is about though, the closest one to me is 40 miles away, I go to that area twice a year, so I don't know if that will be a problem.

Ahhhh, that makes sense.  I wonder if there is anywhere in the area that refills them.  

Quoting MissMysteriouss:

Yes I have one. I really like it.

It comes with one CO2 tank. Once it is empty you can either buy another one for full price, or refill the old one for about half the price. Here many places refill them. Walmart, ect. Or in your case, you could buy a couple tanks and refill them once they run out.

How often do you have to replace the tank? How much is it?

I wanted to get one when they first became popular.  My dad would go through about 20 bottles of seltzer a week and at $1.00/bottle he'd had the thing paid for in a month.  He decided not to get one.  I still want one, but I don't know of any places around me that refill the CO2 tank.

Okay I'm the only one who drinks seltzer water and we really don't drink soda. To make seltzer do you have to add anything?

So I guess it's cheaper than purchasing bottles at the store and better for the environment?


Quoting MissMysteriouss:

Here a new tank is $29. To refill is between $15-$20, depending on where you go.



We are a family of 8. 4 of which are teen boys, so the tank goes quick for us. It lasts about 2 months. The boys like the energy drinks, they say it taste like Red Bull.



But for smaller families it would last a lot longer.

Okay thanks for answering all my questions. I think I'll be getting one for Christmas.
Which one do you have?


Quoting MissMysteriouss:

If you want plain seltzer water, you don't need to add anything.



They do have little flavor viles if you want to add some flavor to your seltzer water.
