Carbonated water tap Answered

Anyone know how to make a carbonated water tap?


Soda stream?

Soda stream is a appliance, I'm thinking more of a faucet mounted to the bench similar to the Zip Hydrotap


It may be worth looking at the kind of carbonated mixer taps used in bars (say, to top up your whiskey with soda). You could get a second-hand one, surgically remove all the syrup-related plumbing...


Carbonation requires some equipment to force the C02 into the water. Ever look at those soda dispensers in fast food shops, still a complicated piping setup behind the scenes and some big tanks of compressed C02..

Yes the post pix machine do have a few pipes but that is due to the flavors. It would be a similar setup but you wouldn't need all the pumps and tubing. All you would need is CO2, carbonator, water filter, tubing and faucet.
