An apparatus for providing carbonating of water. The apparatus including a carbonating tank having a carbon dioxide inlet, a water inlet, and a carbonated water outlet. The carbonating tank is pivotally mounted to a rigid structure and connected to an electric motor for providing an undulating or rocking motion of the carbonator about its pivot mounting. The motion of the carbonating tank providing for carbonating of the water held therein.
A method for carbonating water, comprising the steps of: pivotally securing a carbonating tank to a support structure, filling the carbonating tank partially with water, applying a head of pressurized carbon dioxide to the water held within the carbonating tank, and moving the carbonating tank in a reciprocating motion about an axis for imparting a motion to the water within the carbonator for facilitating carbonating of the water.
