Introduction

Sometimes when you operate your SodaStream, the drink does not come out fizzy enough, or you can hear gas escaping on the inside. This may be an issue with the internal air hose. This is a small piece that is part of the inner machine setup. The hose is what helps the carbonation process, it connects the carbonation bottle with the nozzle on the main loader tab, and if it is damaged in any way you may not be able to use your device. In this guide, you will see how the hose can be disconnected and replaced if the need arises.
