How to make seltzer water at home is a very simple process. You need to purchase a “seltzer bottle” and “chargers”.
The bottle will hold regular tap water. Most seltzer bottles look like old thermos bottles and have a spray device built in the lid. The CO2 charges are canisters of pressurized carbon dioxide and come in two types – one a snap-on type an the other is a screw in type. The charger fits into the spray head. When you press the trigger or plunger, you will get fresh carbonated seltzer or soda water.
The chargers usually come in boxes of 10 and each charger will carbonate about 1 quart of carbonated water. You then just dispose of the charger. After using all 10 in the box, you just need to order another box. Chargers can be purchased at many stores as well as a great number of websites on the internet. The price of these chargers comes out to less than buying club soda from the store. You can even join a club where the price of your chargers can come out to being even cheaper.
The seltzer bottles themselves have many different prices depending on the material the bottle is made of. You can get aluminum, glass or stainless steel. The bottles with the plastic parts are usually not very cost effective as they do not last very long. The most popular bottles are the stainless steel ones. They can be bought at any store or at many websites over the internet.
Once you have the devices necessary for making seltzer or carbonated water, you are quickly on your way to making great tasting soda pop or soda water for your family. You can add pieces of fruit to your water for a refreshing, low sugar drink or you can buy flavor packages that can also produce low calorie drinks. You can also use your seltzer water to mix with alcohol for cocktail hour with the adults.
