About home carbonation​

Drink mixes

Mysoda has two drink concentrate lines. One manufactured in France and the other manufactured in Finland. 

All flavors produced in Finland are vegan. 

Mysoda offers five naturally sweetened drink mixes with sugar that do not contain any artificial sweeteners and eight sugar-free drink mixes sweetened with acesulfame K or sucralose in the Nordic line.

Drink mixes in the French line are naturally sweetened with sugar.

  • Fill the bottle with cold water up to the mark
  • Attach the bottle to the appliance and carbonate the water by pressing the carbonation button 2-3 times, depending on your preference.

  • Fill the glass with cold sparkling water

Drinking bottles

Mysoda offers two types of bottles: plastic (PET) and glass bottles. The plastic bottles are made of BPA-free plastic. The bottom and cap of the bottle are made of either wood composite or aluminium, depending on the model. The glass bottles for Mysoda Glassy are made of durable glass and have a cap of aluminium.

Plastic bottles should be washed with warm water and a mild dishwashing detergent. Glass bottles can be cleaned the same way or washed in the dishwasher.

Only Mysoda glass bottles can be washed in the dishwasher. Mysoda plastic bottles should only be cleaned by hand and will get damaged when put in the dishwasher. Plastic bottles that have been in the dishwasher must not be used for carbonation.

Our plastic water bottles are compatible with all Mysoda sparkling water makers. In addition, they can be used with devices produced by Wassermaxx, Aqvia, Sodapop, Drinkmate and Levivo. Mysoda glass bottles are only compatible with our Glassy model.

Sodastream drinking bottles are not compatible with Mysoda sparkling water makers due to a different locking mechanism. All Mysoda drinking bottles are compatible with all Mysoda sparkling water makers.

No, these sparkling water makers are not designed for the use with glass bottles. Due to the devices’ open design, they can, for safety reasons, not be used with glass bottles. You should only use original Mysoda bottles on your Mysoda sparkling water maker. Mysoda cannot be held responsible for any damage or injuries caused using another manufacturer’s bottle.

Sparkling water makers

Mysoda sparkling water makers  are made in China. But, the raw material of the device, UPM Formi EcoAce wood composite, is manufactured in Finland utilising the residues of the sawmill and pulp industries.

If you carbonate very cold water with the Woody sparkling water maker, the nozzle of the appliance may freeze momentarily, preventing the water from carbonating properly. When you remove the bottle from the carbonator, the ice disappears on its own. The Toby and Ruby sparkling water makers have an anti-freezing nozzle, allowing very cold water carbonation.

First, make sure the CO2 cylinder is securely fastened. Do not overtighten or use tools. If the carbon dioxide cylinder in the appliance still loosens while carbonating, proceed as follows:

  • Remove the top of the device by turning it counterclockwise.
  • Remove the CO2 cylinder.
  • Make sure that the black O-ring is properly in place at the bottom of the base. Press firmly to seal with your finger.
  • If after this the CO2 cylinder still loosens when carbonating (even though the CO2 cylinder is tightly screwed in place), please contact

Follow the instructions below:

  • Fill the bottle with cold water up to the mark.
  • Attach the bottle to the carbonator by turning it ¼ counterclockwise and gently pushing the bottle upright.
  • Carbonate the water by pressing the carbonation button 2-3 times. Stop when you hear the hiss.
  • Pull the bottle towards you to release the pressure in the bottle.
  • Remove the water bottle by turning it ¼ clockwise.
  • Ready!

Enjoy bubble water as is, or add Mysoda drink mixes. 

You can clean the Mysoda carbonators by wiping the surface with a damp cloth. To prevent damage to the surface of the appliance, do not use strong detergents.

The white specks you can see on our Woody and Toby sparkling water makers are no sign of dirt or damage of the machine but part of their design and material. Our sparkling water makers are made of renewable wood-based composite. The white particles you see are wood fibres which are a component of the wood composite material used.  

CO2 cylinders

Yes, CO2 cylinders are manufactured according to a European standard. Therefore CO2 cylinders from other manufacturers are compatible with Mysoda sparkling water makers and vice versa. However, this does not apply to Quick Connect cylinders and any Sodastream models using those Quick Connect cylinders. Find out more about how to identify CO2-cylinders compatible with your Mysoda sparkling water maker here.

Yes, Mysoda CO2 cylinders are manufactured according to a European standard. Therefore Mysoda CO2 cylinders are compatible with manufacturer’s sparkling water makers that use cylinders with screw-on mechanism.

Always check first that the carbon dioxide bottle is securely attached to the appliance. You know it’s time to replace your CO2 cylinder by the following signs:

  • When you press the carbonation button and no bubbles enter the water.
  • When you remove the water bottle from the appliance after pressing the carbonation button there are still no bubbles in the water.
  • The carbonation button feels loose, and you don’t hear the sound of carbonation but only the sound of a button press.

Take an empty carbon dioxide bottle with you to the grocery store and replace it with a full one. That way, you only pay for the gas in the bottle.
