****** Page 5 ****** User Guide Your newest home ritual, courtesy of Aarke. As a group of design enthusiasts, we appreciate you taking the time to get to know your new Carbonator. At-home carbonation is a more convenient, affordable, and environmentally-friendly alternative to store-bought sparkling water–you’ve made an excellent choice. Beyond the surface, there are a wide range of benefits your Carbonator has to offer, such as custom carbonation levels. We encourage you to experiment with the lever to achieve your preferred degree of carbonation. Your Carbonator has been crafted with the finest premium materials, designed and tested from the inside out for peak quality and safety. However, please keep in mind that any product involving the use of gas and pressure systems should be handled with care and used only as intended. Be sure to carefully review the safety section of this guide before use. Welcome to Aarke EN

If the bottle is overfilled, excess water will flow into the spill tray during carbonation. 3. Carbonate the water Pull and gently hold the lever down until you hear a persistant buzzing noise from the valve. EN 2. Attach the bottle Place the bottle in the socket and begin to screw in with a counterclockwise motion. No need to overly-tighten, but be sure the bottle isn’t crooked when screwed in. 1+. Release the bottle Release the lever back to its resting position. The remaining pressure in the bottle will automatically release with a puff sound. Unscrew and remove the bottle from the machine.

****** Page 9 ****** User Guide DECREE OF CARBONATION The Aarke Carbonator allows for custom levels of carbonation, depending on your personal preference. Carbonation is also influenced by other factors such as water temperature and xl EN the amount of gas in the cylinder. How do you prefer your sparkling water? Carbonation levels can be increased by repeating the carbonation process. Pro tip: Conserve gas and maximize bubbles by only releasing the lever half-way between each carbonation cycle (each time you push the lever down all the way). CIVE YOUR CARBONATOR A LONG, HAPPY LIFE 0 o o Stainless Steel finish The Carbonator in Stainless Steel is truly made from stainless steel–its lustre comes from a chrome element, and its stainless quality comes from nickel. To clean your Stainless Steel Carbonator, we recommend using a microfibre cloth and clean water, with some mild soap if needed. Avoid strong detergents and abrasive household cleaners. Following these maintenance tips is strongly encouraged to prolong the look and performance of your Carbonator for years to come. Lacquered finish The Carbonator is also available in a variety of lacquered finishes that are achieved by industrial paint or finishing on stainless steel. For Carbonators with a gloss finish, we recommend using a microfibre cloth and clean water, with some mild soap if needed. For Carbonators with a matte finish, we recommend using a soft cloth or sponge and clean water. Avoid strong detergents and abrasive household cleaners.

****** Page 10 ****** User Guide CLEANING THE BOTTLE To clean your Aarke PET Bottle, use clean lukewarm water and a mild detergent. If using a dishwashing brush, be sure that the brush is intended for cleaning plastic bottles — other brushes may leave scratches on the bottle’s surface. Avoid solvents, strong detergents, and abrasive household cleaners. Never put your Aarke PET Bottle in the dishwasher. Though they are engineered to be extremely durable, our bottles can only withstand a maximum temperature of 1+0 degrees Celsius– more extreme temperatures may compromise the structural integrity of the bottle. EMPTYING THE SPILL TRAY Why is there water in the spill tray? If the bottle is overfilled prior to carbonation, excess water will flush through the machine and be collected in the spill tray. To avoid this, be sure to only fill the bottle up to the filling line. To clean excess water from the spill tray, use a clean dishcloth. EN 60

****** Page 11 ****** User Guide SAFETY GUIDELINES Never carbonate anything other than plain water During the carbonation process, small amounts of liquid can bubble up into the valves. EN If the liquid being carbonated contains sugar or other compounds, the valves can eventually be compromised and malfunction, and lead to potential danger when operating the product. Be sure to rinse the bottle carefully before each use. Never add fruit slices, ice, or flavors — only carbonate plain water. We highly recommend adding flavor post-carbonation either in a carafe or a glass. Don’t put fruit, vegetables, or herbs in the bottle before carbonating. Don’t carbonate juice or milk. COLA Don’t put flavors or syrup into the bottle before carbonating. Don’t put ice in the bottle before carbonating. Don’t carbonate wine. 0 Don’t try to re-carbonate old, flat soda.

****** Page 12 ****** User Guide EN Never clean the PET Bottle in the dishwasher The Aarke PET Bottle is designed to withstand pressures up to double the working pressure of the Carbonator. However, the structural integrity of the bottle can be quickly compromised if exposed to heat exceeding 1+0 degrees Celsius. Most dishwashers operate at extremely high temperatures, placing the bottle at risk. Keep your Carbonator out of the heat Due to the laws of physics, pressure within the gas cylinder is dependent upon its outside temperature. The Aarke Carbonator is optimized for use with gas at room temperature. If the cylinder gets too hot, the machine can become potentially dangerous to use. Don’t place the Carbonator in the direct sun or too close to a window. Don’t place the Carbonator close to open flames of any sort. Don’t place the Carbonator next to a radiator or space heater. Don’t use the Carbonator in extreme outdoor temperatures.

****** Page 13 ****** User Guide Don’t transport the Carbonator with the gas cylinder installed Always unscrew the gas cylinder while traveling. EN Do not use the PET Bottle after its expiration date By its expiration date, the bottle’s plastic may have weakened and should be replaced for your safety. Expiration date n xxø DO NOT USE WATER BOTTLES FROM OTHER BRANDS. THIS CAN DAMAGE THE MACHINE AND LEAD TO A SAFETY RISK. A few additional safety tips Never use a bottle that’s deformed, discolored, or scratched. Never put the bottle in the freezer. Avoid bacteria and odor by always keeping the bottle clean and storing it with the cap off.

****** Page 14 ****** User Guide EN Never attempt to carbonate an empty bottle Injecting gas into an empty bottle may lead to high pressure inside the bottle that could result in a safety risk. Keep the Carbonator away from children Children are way too creative to use this product. Always use your sparkling water maker in an upright position If operated in other positions, dangerous levels of C02 gas can accumulate in the bottle curing the carbonation process.

****** Page 17 ****** User Guide CYLINDER CASKET TROUBLESHOOTING AND REPLACEMENT EN The rubber gasket is located inside the Carbonator’s cylinder compartment and functions as a very important seal between the cylinder and the machine. If the gasket is missing, damaged, or misplaced, the machine will not work as intended. Possible symptoms of a faulty or missing cylinder gasket could be: 2. 3. A leaking sound from the cylinder compartment when pushing the lever Water droplets in the cylinder compartment or a frozen cylinder The cylinder quickly runs out of gas The cylinder is leaking gas when screwed into the machine, even when the lever isn’t being pushed Checking the gasket Unscrew the cylinder and turn the Carbonator upside down. Look down into the cylinder compartment and check to see if there’s a black gasket (a black ring) around the brass pin, and if it looks to be placed correctly. Replacing the gasket (go to for illustrated instructions) 2. 3. 5. 6. Each Carbonator has an extra gasket stored under the base of the machine, underneath a sticker labeled “Extra Gasket.” Remove the sticker and take out the extra gasket. Ensure that the C02 cylinder has been removed from the Carbonator. A few inches below the black seam there is a screw at the back of the machine. Unscrew it, grab the upper part of the machine, and lift it out from the body. Turn the upper portion upside down and look inside. If necessary, remove the old gasket with tweezers or a small screwdriver. Place the new gasket into the circular hole and push it into place around the entire perimeter. Place the upper portion of the machine back into the main body. Ensure it’s straight and facing the correct direction before screwing it back in. Done!
