The cost for exchanging a 60-liter SodaStream CO2 canister will vary based on the location but the average price is $15-$17 dollars.
Now exchanging your canister is usually 1/2 the price of buying a new filled SodaStream tank.
This is because you are only paying for the compressed CO2 gas, not for the tank.
Where Can You Get SodaStream CO2 Refills
1- The SodaStream Company
The SodaStream Company offers a home delivery service in certain areas.
How this works is that a full cylinder will be delivered to your home in exchange for your empty canister.
To do this:

- Once you are in one of those zones
- You next need to decide on the delivery method
- And then pay for the full cylinder before its delivered.

Pros of Delivery System
- SodaStream delivery system really helps to take the stress out of having to actively go out and find places the exchange your cylinders which trust me can be a real hassle.
- And also helps save on gas and more importantly your time.
I hope SodaStream expands it to more areas to make it easier for all SodaStream owners.
A couple of years ago SodaStream had a mail-in system, where you would order a cylinder and when it arrives through the post, you would mail back your empty cylinder.
This was a very easy and cheap way of getting exchanges because it relied on the postal service but sadly because of the new regulation concerning the shipping of compressed gas, this had to cease.

How Does SodaStream Refills Work
SodaStream Machines use CO2 gas to carbonate water, and the CO2 gas is stored in cylinders also known as tanks or canister.
These CO2 cylinders would eventually need to be replaced when empty, meaning all the CO2 gas has been used up.
Now in SodaStream case, they offer exchanges, where rather than having to buy a new tank every time one is empty all you need to do is give them your empty CO2 Canister and get back a full CO2 Canister.
Why Exchanges Are Great
This works out better since you are only paying for the Compressed CO2 gas, not for another tank.
And also this is great for the environment since you won’t be throwing away all your used up CO2 canisters which would end up at some landfill.
Tips for SodaStream Refills
- Always have a back up CO2 canisters so, when one is finished you can always use the other, whilst you are waiting to get the exchange Amazon usually has great prices, click to see the current price for a Spare CO2 tank.
- Another great tip is to use a 130-liter cylinder which is bigger than the regular 60-liter tank and would last you a much longer time.
- The 130-liter tank doesn’t work with all SodaStream Models, I know for sure that it works with the SodaStream Jet, since I have one so if you have the Jet consider buying the 130-liter.
