    I found this site http://www.boneville.net/soda/

    This is something i have been thinking about for years. Both me and the girl drink diet Dr pepper and Diet coke like water. I was thinking that this is cheaper in the long run. I can get 5 gallon syrup packs from costco for like 50 bucks.

    I have never bought anything on ebay and to get this stuff cheap i would have to get it there. Found a hand unit (bar unit) for 300 with all the parts. But i cant decided if i want a standalone unit more.

    This would be a big project and alot of work but i think it would be cool. IF i had a house instead of a apartment i could work it into the house itself this would have to be external of any walls.
    Aay ideas, sugestions, comments?

    I can't drink any form of liquid from those things, it always tastes disgusting :speechless:
    I've never known anyone feel the need to have one at home :eek:

    Would be a really sweet project, best of luck to you and post some pictures throughout if you decide to take it on ;)

    I would agree that you should wait for a house though - when you go to sell marketing a "built-in" soda fountain would be sweet :p

    My father-in-law had a soda fountain in their house a long time ago. It did save them money.

    I still think there could be a market for fizzy milk.
