In order for the product to slush, it has to be at the right brix level (syrup to water ratio). if it's too lean, it will ice up causing damage. there are also silicon seals that will not do well with carbonation after a while.

SOURCE: I have an Ultra 2 bunn slush machine. One hopper

make sure it's mixed properly. if there is toomuch water, it'll freeze solid. if the mix is too rich, ice will form on the outside of the bowls. you may also have a low refrigerant level.

What are the health benefits of carbonated drinks?

Carbonated water is almost as beneficial to health as plain water. When compared to regular water, sparkling water has the ability to cause dental erosion, but the negative dental effects of carbonated water are negligible. However, adding sugar or acid substances to carbonated beverages greatly increase these negative effects. Carbonated water is good for hydration, although fizzy water has less of a hydrating effect than the same volume of regular water. The taste and texture of carbonated water may lead you to drink a greater volume of sparkling water than you would have consumed had only regular water been available. Carbonation is one way to increase consumer interest in drinking water.

Pepsi contains 100 calories per serving (240 ml). Coke contains 97 calories per serving size (240 ml). So they pretty much contain the same amount of calories.
