Anyway I can't remember the name of the company however I found quite a lot of suppliers in the yellow pages under heating/ heater supplies etc... give it...

    Soda Stream Adaptors - Differences

    I Gather from this you mean the ESB one doesn't work... If thats the case, maybe the pin in the end of the SS bottle is fitting into the hole in the adapter therefore sealing it.
