Bump... So gang, what's the consensus on this? Is seltzer water from a syphon better tasting than club soda? I bring this up because I just watched an old episode of Good Eats on bar drinks and Alton Brown (my hero) said seltzer was better tasting than club soda. If he said it, maybe it really is. I did happen to notice that he got a lot more fizz in his glass than I do when I pour in club soda.

Club Soda has additives such as sodium bicarbonate, sodium chloride, sodium phosphate and/or sodium citrate, so it has a different flavor then seltzer, which is just carbonated water. The carbonation in the seltzer I have delivered form larger bubbles and seem to last longer then club soda.

I have an ISI soda siphon and I do like it. I bought mostly because I got tired of buying San Pelligrino and lugging bottles to the house and taking them out to recycle etc. It's got some great advantages to buying club soda or seltzer: you can have as much or as little anytime you want and it stays carbonated and there's less environmental waste than buying bottled water. Think about how much gas is used just trucking around bottles of water!

That was something else I meant to ask. Once it's charged, does it need to be used in a certain amount of time before it goes flat?

I've never kept a charged bottle around for more than a week or two without finishing it but it does not go noticeably flatter in that amount of time.
