DIY geekery

Check out the link:
Homemade carbonation system (warning, extremely nerdy content)

And yes, I am posting this because I just constructed such a device and am quite pleased with myself. Pictures tomorrow, maybe, though mine isn't nearly as trick as the setup shown.

I was meaning to ask why you had a tank of CO2 in the shop. I was going to sarcastically ask if you were going to make your own soda. Guess you showed me.

Why??? Last time I check soda was really cheap

Anon -

Seltzer water from the store: $0.80
Seltzer water made by Walt: <$0.10
Bottles of Selzter consumed by Walt and Sarah per year: ~300
Annual savings: ~$200

Plus, you don't have to drag a bunch of heavy bottles home from the grocery store, and you don't have to throw away 300 perfectly good soda bottles.

Seems like it makes sense to me.
