Depends how fizzy you like it. You can easily go 150 to 200kpa on a cold keg. I usually set reg to 300 and shake for a few minutes, burp and serve at 100, that's at 5 degrees.
If you have beer on the same gas lines put a non return valve at the gas in of your soda keg so gas can't escape from there and overcarb your beer.

I recommend only making soda water and then flavour each drink as you pour it, gives you more variety and pure soda water.

only a hour seams a bit short term i was thinking at least 24 hours
Yeah one hour should be enough to let is settle down. You can leave it up to 24 hours though anything over that and you will probably over carb.
