Why Is It Important to Know the Weight of a SodaStream Cylinder
- For Shipping Purpose; so you can calculate the cost of shipping your SodaStream Cylinders.

What’s the Meaning of 60 liters and 130 liters
This can be confusing to a lot of people at the beginning.
The liter system describes on average how many liters of water the cylinder can carbonate, it is commonly mistaken that it means how much CO2 is stored in the cylinder.
So a 130-liter cylinder will make roughly 130 liters of carbonated water.
Now the other size of SodaStream tank is the 130-liter size which would have different weight.
The 130 liter SodaStream Cylinder weighs 1400 grams or 3 pounds when it is empty.
When it is filled with CO2 gas it gains 935 grams or 2 pounds of weight which gives it a total weight of 2335 grams or 5 pounds.
