Carbonator caps
« on: April 13, 2011, 10:16:34 PM »
The new caps and their threading on the PET bottles will no longer accept a Carbonator cap. Ideas? Suggestions?

Is this all bottles?  Maybe a different brand would work better, I haven't had any problems.

Are you trying to find a 20 oz bottle? The only ones I've seen recently that haven't switched to the recyclable caps are Aquafina. AFAIK 1 L and 2 L bottles are still using the same threads/caps as always.

As far as I can tell the 1&2 liters have also gone over to the new cap design. Hopefully these folks will release a new Carbonator cap.

I'm going to have to start hoarding my plastic bottles now?  Bummer.  I really don't want to have to buy new carb caps.

Ooh, that's good to know. I guess the manufacturers haven't switched over on this side of the country yet, or maybe the old bottles are still working their way out of the supply chain. Guess I'll be stocking up on tonic water next time I'm in town...
