Things you find!

Grovelling under the stairs as part of a tidy up, I came across this Moorhouse Soda Syphon. I have not seen one of those for maybe 30 years. Since Moorhouse were part of BHead Breweries I guess someone here will know the History.

I seem to remember that with this type of sealed syphon you paid a deposit and then just paid for a filled exchange. Don't suppose I could get my deposit money back on this one??

The other sort were the Sparklet bulb type that you filled yourself. I found one of those under the stairs.

Question: Anyone know where you can buy the Sparklet bulbs these days?

I remember getting our soda waters from Yorks in the narrow part of old Wallasey Village.

I remember sparklets soda syphons well and Moorehouse lemonade.
Soda syphon bulbs surprisingly still readily available HERE ONLY 6.50 for a box of 10 !! I think they used to be 10p each.

I think mum used to exchange the soda syphons in Quales Chemist in Wally Village.

I was hoping for somewhere local to get the Sparklet type bulbs. My guess is somewhere dealing with homebrew stuff - but that is not my scene so do not know where.

I remember how tricky it was to add to a spirit without it flying out the other side of the glass.

If you know a shop which sells airguns, try there; lots of airguns these days are powered by CO2 bulbs.

As mentioned, soft air guns and paintballs use CO cartridges.
Still readily available, try here 8 for 4.95!! They call them SPARCLETTS. www.store.justpaintball.co.uk/air-co2

With that "small" reminder I turn round from my desk and there are half a dozen of them in the box with the CO2 air pistol !!!! They are Crossman make so expensive of course.

Snod, is it 30 years since you last had a tidy up? Think it was half a crown return on the soda syphone bottle in the late 50s. Use to sell them along with moorhouses pop in my mums shop 1953 to 1964ish.
