    Penguin Brand Dry Ice

    Penguin dry ice (food safe) can be found in 4500 supermarket locations in the US. At $1.50 a pound it takes $3 to fill a 130L SodaStream carbonator bottle. Once the cap is screwed back on the solid CO2 will undergo sublimation until the pressure rises to a high enough level whereby all the CO2 then liquefies. My guess is that everyone on this board owns a SodaStream and hates the high refill prices. Google Penguin dry ice for their store locator to find a supermarket in your area code. Also check out the YouTube video for one method on refilling. I have 3 130 liter bottles and the nearest Staples is 15 miles away. Staples wanted over $100 with tax to exchange all 3. Instead I bought 6.5 pounds of dry ice from my local (half mile) Publix for $10 and now I've got 3 full bottles. I put the block of dry ice in a pillow case and hammered it into a powder. With a funnel I shoveled 2 pounds into each bottle. Took 20 minutes. Works perfect.
