Updated: Monday, June 11, 2018Hello fine friends of BreakMateSource.com, We are planning a major redesign of the site from the top down. Every single aspect of the site will be redesigned for a more concise, clearer, and more user-friendly approach. We also want to highlight any new areas of information you might like to see and remove any sections that the community feels are no longer relevant. We know that content to the site has been a bit stale for a while and are personally making a commitment to post new content more often. Community member action (i.e., forum posts, ads, etc.) has also been relatively slow, so we want to change that and we’re asking for your support. How can you help? As we go through the process of mapping out our redesign plans, we’d like to hear from our community members, to let your voices be heard, and to make BreakMateSource.com the absolute best site it can be. So, how can you help? Provide us your unbridled and unabashed feedback. What do you like about the site? What do you wish would change? What features would you like highlighted? Here are a few questions you can help us answer: What type of content would you like to see more often? Videos? Instructional Posts? Beginners Guide(s)? Etc… you name it! Are there any sections of the site that you feel are useless or underutilized? For example: Is the For Sale / Want Ad section useful to have? Is the FAQ section useful to have? Are there sections/features you’d like to see that are missing? Are there specific topics that you feel would benefit the community? For example: How to first setup your machine How to convert from a BreakMate CO2 tank to a standard CO2 tank How to perform system diagnostics. These are

But more importantly, it is searchable. If you have suggestions on how to improve it further, please let me know. You can find it in the knowledge base. Or by clicking here.
Updated: Friday, June 10, 2016A BIG thank you to all of our loyal friends, visitors and entrants in the “Win A BreakMate 2016” Contest. We received a number of excellent candidates and are very proud of the traffic this small little contest was able to generate. Please continue to tell your friends about us – especially those who are interested in at-home Soda Fountains and BreakMate machines. It is with great pleasure that we can, today, announce the winner of this contest. While we had many worthy entrants, the verified winner of this contest is Joe O – from New York! We have been in contact with Joe and hope to have his BreakMate to him very soon. And we’re hoping that he’ll post a few photos/videos of it in action once he receives it. We’ll be posting quite a lot more content in the next few days and weeks – specifically – we’re looking at a few more “start up / first time” videos, a video tutorial of all the BreakMates parts and functions, and a whole lot more. As always, we value your feedback, so if you have any questions, comments, or anything else, feel free to reach out to us. Thank you again to everyone who entered.
Updated: Friday, May 6, 2016Thinking of doing an interactive “this part is called this…” type walkthrough of the BreakMates as my next video series. Who thinks this is a good idea? Anyone want to see something else first?

Updated: Tuesday, April 12, 2016As I reviewed the forums @ Yahoo, I went back and looked at what the recurring themes were. By far, the greatest question asked is: “How do I get replacement Syrup bottles”? The stock of existing bottles is quickly drying up, so if you’d like to purchase NEW bottles, made from FDA approved materials (no mystery glues), now is your chance. For more information on this opportunity, visit our post, to learn more: https://breakmatesource.com/donations/help-make-breakmate-replacement-syrup-containers

Updated: Wednesday, March 23, 2016As BreakMate hobbiests, you know that syrup bottles are a necessity and one that is becoming more difficult to obtain. And with three needed per machine, and the lack of supply, prices are starting to rise. To help with this issue, I am considering having new bottles produced. in order to do so, I need the community to help me understand if there is adequate demand and just what the pricing structure would support. Please help me by filling out the following polls. Thanks! As always, feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
Updated: Friday, March 11, 2016Hi Everyone, After discussing with some of the other fine BreakMate enthusiasts out there, some who are well established and some who are not, I decided to take my hobbying of BreakMate to a new level. During my initial “getting to knows” of the BreakMate product, I found that some information was hard to come by directly. Yes, there are plenty of resources scattered through the “internet of things” but being so scattered, it wasn’t quite so easy to find. So, since I’m a technically-minded guy, I decided it might be nice to combine all of the resources into one cohesive and easy to use website. That is why breakmatesource.com is here! I feel it has all the elements a proper “community focused” site should have: Forums for discussion, Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and/or a Knowledge Base (KB), as well as Classifieds for selling or looking to purchase items and an area devoted to those (few) suppliers that are still available, along with a rating system. If there is anything on this site that you feel is lacking or missing altogether, please feel free to use the ‘contact me’ form and I’ll do my best to update the site as time permits. And of course, your feedback (good or bad) is always welcome. Right now – I’ve put the framework in place and as time progresses additional sections and information will appear. So – sign up – and check back often! Looking forward to seeing where this goes. -Matt
