It is the brand name of carbonation systems for use at home. They were invented in the early 1900s to add carbon dioxide (CO2) to drinking water. In those days they were called “apparatus for aerating liquids”. The newer versions allow for adding flavored concentrates and before you know it – you have homemade carbonated, flavor drink or soda pop.
The initial machines made were rather large and were sold to the houses with more people of the upper classes of London, including the royal household. There were flavors with odd names, one being the famous sarsaparilla released while in the 1920s. The commercial carbonation machines were also introduced from the 1920s and were very popular. The first smaller machines for home carbonation was manufactured in 1955.
