Bubble Bummer! Let's get you through this. Don't panic, and try these tips: 1. Tighten the carbonating cylinder into place and make sure that it’s full. 2. Double check that the sparkling water maker is in its proper upright position and plugged in if it requires electricity. 3. After inserting the carbonating bottle per the instruction manual that came with your sparkling water maker, press the carbonating button ALL the way down in firm short bursts. 5. Want a stronger fizz? Try adding a push or pressing down for a few seconds longer. Still not sparkling to your hearts desire? Contact our sparkle support team and we'll help you sort it out.
