Default carbonate water for club soda?

How long does it take to carbonate water for club soda?

I have a keg, regulator, and Co2. The 5 gallon keg is full, I charged the keg to 40 PSI. Tt does not appear that i have any leaks. The keg has been in the fridge for 2 days and the water has little fizz.

Give the keg a shake for several minutes. This will help dissolve co2 quicker.

Make sure it's very cold. Colder liquids carbonate easier. I shake my kegs when making club soda. Be careful not to overdo it. Shake it a bit and then test. You can make club soda that is so carbed it's almost undrinkable.

I use 35 psi and without shaking, it takes a week to carbonate. I also use 20 feet of 3/16ths beer line to minimize carbonation loss.

I do mine in a two liter bottle with a carbonator cap. I add a little gypsom and a few grains of salt to the water also.
