    Frustrated. Just set up my first (expensive to me) soda kit and am surprised with the poor results.

    Tried that. Vendor has been out of town and got back to me with a telephone shrug. I get that the statements sound like they contradict each other. But I wasn't ready to assume expensive=ripoff. I'm on a tower with an SS faucet and elbow shank (apparently carbonic acid eats chrome and can...
