Why Safety Matters

CO2 cylinders, though commonly used with SodaStream machines, come with their set of risks when mishandled. Incorrect storage can lead to leaks or even pressure-related accidents. Such incidents not only jeopardize the functionality of your SodaStream but can also pose risks in your household.

Best Practices for Safe Storage

When it comes to CO2 cylinders, a little awareness goes a long way. Here are some straightforward measures to ensure they're stored safely:

Upright Position: Always keep cylinders upright. This position helps maintain the internal pressure and reduces chances of leakage.

Cool and Dry: Store your cylinders in a place that’s cool and dry, away from direct sunlight. Basements or pantries often make good choices.

Stable Ground: Ensure the storage area is free from the risk of the cylinder tipping over or being struck by other objects.

Sealed and Undamaged: Before storing, check your cylinder for any visible damage. Make sure it's properly sealed. If you notice any issues, consider exchanging it.

What to Avoid

Safety is as much about knowing what not to do. Here are some practices to steer clear from:

Heat Exposure: Avoid placing cylinders near heaters, stoves, or in vehicles for extended periods. High temperatures can increase internal pressure.

Using Compromised Cylinders: Rusty or dented cylinders can be hazardous. If you're unsure about the integrity of your cylinder, it's best to replace it.

DIY Fixes: While it might be tempting, never attempt to repair a cylinder yourself. If you suspect an issue, consult a professional or consider an exchange.
