Removing the lights in a soda or vending machine reduces the visibility hurting sales and may only save $50 per year. By simply unplugging customers may approach the machine and find it out of operation so you have the added hassle of unplugging and plugging in daily. Timers can be installed to regulate the times that a vending machine has power but because timers may shut down a machine while its running through a refrigeration cycle. Shutting down a machine during one of these cycles may increase the amount of required maintenance.

The soda pop maker machine uses refillable Co2 canisters to carbonate your own h2o. The system has a pressure release designed for safety so you cannot over pressure a persons bottle which is also used to get the correct amount of fizz in your water. I highly recommend this kind of machine makes it far more easy than lugging the seltzer residence from the store. I love creating my very own flavoring for that sodas. On top of that while using commercial machine to make soda beverages will save persons the stress of heading a great distance to grocers price of travelling and the possibility of losing a few containers on transportation.
A great place to pick up used machines is Craigslist and eBay. Also make sure to look in your local yellow pages for vending companies. Most medium sized cities have vending companies and they very often have used machines for sale that they are no longer using. One of the main issues though with getting used machines is keeping track of all the different product selections. Getting the product selection right is paramount to running a successful vending business. Thats why I suggest using a vending management solution so you can keep track of all of your different sodas in each machine.
