It looks like they will last a long time, so they're worth the money.

I built a simple system to make sparkling beverages, using a CO2 10 liter Keg, a hose with a connector that fits this "Carbonator" cap.

I think I have carbonated about 1000 liters of water using three of these caps, and they are still working with no trouble. They are very solidly made. Following are a few things I learned that will help achieve better results (i.e., stronger carbonation). (1) Start with refrigerated water because carbon dioxide dissolves better in water at lower temperatures. (2) Fill the bottle leaving a an inch or two of empty space at the top so that you can better shake the bottle. (3) After screwing on the carbonater top, push the valve down with your finger and squeeze the air out of the bottle. When you connect the carbon dioxide tank, the bottle will expand (with a bit of a pop), and all the air space will be filled with carbon dioxide. (4) Shake the bottle for about 45 seconds. You don't have to do it vigorously; just keep the water and gas mixing. (5) Let the bottle sit for at least two minutes before removing the cap. That will let micro-bubbles absorb so you won't lose too much gas when you remove the top. I like to carbonate at least three bottles in a row, using three carbonater caps. That way the the first bottle is ready to be opened by the time I've carbonated the third bottle.

So I don't use The Carbonater for beer like most people probably do. I've rigged up my own carbonation station at home. With the help of this product, I can carbonate any liquid in a 2-liter bottle. I've also used it on the Coke 1.25 lt bottles as well with good results. Product came with good instructions and seems very durable, this isn't a soft cheap plastic. I'll be buying a couple more, as the directions indicate, it's good to leave the cap on overnight or even longer to help the co2 absorption. That's no lie, to me, the soda tastes much better after a couple days of sitting in the fridge before consumption.

The product is also great for rejuvenating flat soda. To be honest, I didn't think I'd ever use this product for that purpose, but I have on a few occasions and it's great to not have to just throw flat soda away.

A little information about my setup: 5 lb co2 tank, regulator set to 40 psi with a hose going to a quick connect for The Carbonater. I recycle used 2-lt bottles and use cold filtered water from my refrigerator. Generally, I use SodaStream syrup (diet cola) to make my sodas, but I've also had good results with Crystal Light and store brand powder mixes.

This is the second cap I bought. The last one worked for nearly 2 years. I built a simple system to make sparkling beverages, using a CO2 10 liter Keg, a hose with a connector that fits this "Carbonator" cap. Simply screw this cap on a plastic water bottle (suitable for sparkling water), fill it with your own filtered chilled water and pressurize it with CO2. You need to shake because under the pressure the carbon dioxide dissolves. Simply disconnect and leave it with this cap in the refrigerator until you open,once open you can replace it with a normal cap. Note: you can sparkle almost anything. Favorites mix of 50:50, water and apple juice or other fruit juices. I played a trick on one of my friends, told him that he is drinking expensive Champagne, but I carbonated a cheap white wine. (note the cap will not fit on a champagne bottle, so you need to bring glasses..).
I sparkled hundreds of bottles of 1/2L bottles with this 10L keg, which lasted now over 2 years. Refill is cheap. I use CO2 gas for beverages, which is used in bars and restaurant for beer and soda beverage systems. The cap is made out of plastic and will eventually wear out and cannot keep the pressure. I was looking for alternatives but I couldn't find any. This solution is still the best and cheapest. No need to buy these expensive soda makers.

The Carbonater is a plastic valve that lets you make soda at home for less than a tenth of what bottled sodas or brand-name home soda makers cost. It works with the following (or similar) Amazon items:

5/16" Gas Line Assembly - Ball Lock
Premium Pro Series Dual Gauge Co2 Draft Beer Regulator

and

A filled 5 pound carbon dioxide (CO2) tank (can usually be found at a welding supply company).

I use this to make soda and it work very well. Wish I had some thing bad to say about it, but cant find any fault with this product. The only fault I can find, is that the instructions tells you to push down in the valve to vent the air, but it hard to push. So what I do, is just squeeze the bottle to let the air out. well I cant bash this over a minor word correction. If you are asking your self should I get this, my answer would be why have you not all ready.

This works very well on 2 litre bottles that do not have slots in the threads. i did have trouble with leakage when trying to carbonate in a coke bottle that had the slotted threads.

I use The Carbonator for carbonating bottled water, beer, and home-made soda. It fits on any traditional screw-top sized plastic bottle (I use 1.25 liter club soda bottles from a local grocery store).

The thick plastic and tight air valve can endure a beating. In the beginning, it takes a couple tries to learn how to successfully attach the ball lock gas in disconnect. Once you get the hang of it, the entire process only takes seconds. The Carbonator doesn't leak or allow liquid to escape, so you can use it to replace the regular bottle cap until you're ready to carbonate the next bottle. Highly recommended.
