(Video) How to Replace the CO2 Cylinder in Your Sparkling Water Machine

Last updated: 10/30/2020

Drinking water can feel like just another item on your to-do list at times. Yet, adding a bit of CO2 to your H2O concoction can transform a tedious necessity into a refreshing escape. Sparkling water and sparkling water machines are nothing new, but with their recent spike in popularity, you would think carbonated water just hit the market a few years ago. In reality, carbonated water has been around since before the United States was even a country.

Millennials’ fixation on health and wellness are fueling the resurgence of sparkling water. According to Business Insider, many Millennials seek healthier alternatives to soda and prefer to consume drinks that are free of synthetics like artificial flavors and sweeteners. Since Millennials make up nearly 50 percent of the labor force today, it’s likely that your workplace is chock-full of sparkling water lovers.

We’re here to make sure carbonated water is never too far out of reach by showing you how to make sparkling water in your workplace. All it takes is knowing how to replace a CO2 cylinder on your Quench sparkling water machine. Think of your CO2 cylinder as your sparkling water maker. Gas is stored inside of a carbon dioxide cylinder under high pressure and only makes an exit when injected into your sparkling water machine.

Changing your CO2 cylinder for a Quench sparkling water machine is simple. Follow the video above or the step-by-step instructions below to learn how to make sparkling water for your office.

How to Change Your CO2 Cylinder in Seven Easy Steps

Step One: Check to see that you have all the items you need to replace your CO2 cylinder. Those items include:

  • A new CO2 cylinder
  • A wrench (if one is not provided with the cylinder)

Step Two: Check that the “No Gas” indicator on the front of the Quench machine is lit. If the light is not on and the machine is not dispensing sparkling water, please contact us.

Step Three: Turn off the CO2 to your Quench sparkling water machine by turning the gas valve to the right. Remember, lefty-loosey, righty-tighty! 

Step Four: Using a wrench, detach the old cylinder from the regulator assembly.

Step Five: Remove the safety cover from the new cylinder and discard it. Attach the cylinder to the regulator assembly and then tighten it with a wrench.

Step Six: If you have the Quench 523, secure the cylinder in the machine base using the Velcro straps. 

Step Seven: Turn on the CO2 to your Quench sparkling water machine by turning the gas valve to the left.
