Before re-using the Alkaline ionizer, install the cartridge, re-connect the power plug, and run water through the Alkaline ionizer for about 3 minutes.
If you are not going to use the Alkaline ionizer for a month or more, the water inside the cartridge may have gone bad so it is recommended that you replace the cartridge.
Leave the power on even while you’re not using the Alkaline Ionizer.
One reason is so that the electrodes need to be automatically cleaned. Another reason is that the volume of all the water which has run through the Alkaline Ionizer will not be totalized if the Alkaline ionizer is used with its power off and, as a result, the cartridge life will not be indicated correctly.The power consumption in the standby status is very low.
The ratio is 4:1, but attention should be paid to how the amounts are measured.
The only way to compare the amounts is to use the same container for the same period of time while water is coming out of the main spout and drain hose.
At the beginning, slightly more water comes out of the drain hose.
After the flow of water has been stopped, water will drain put from inside the Alkaline Ionizer so a lot of water will accumulate on the drain hose side.
If the flow is low, slightly more water comes out of the drain hose.
Check if the drain hose is bent or flattened.
Calcium has built up inside the Alkaline Ionizer, reducing the electrolysis effect.
It’s because acidic water contains a lot of hypochlorous acid. There’s no problem if you use it as is.
Electrolysis causes the chlorine ions in the water to collect in acidic water, forming hypochlorous acid.
This stands for 2-methylisoborneol , a substances which causes tap water to have a musty odor.
The cartridge replacement lamp also lights when the amount of the water passing through the unit or its pressure has dropped.
Check whether the water volume has dropped because of a reduction in water pressure or whether the water supply hose is bent or flattened. Also, the cartridge may already be clogged due to the kind of water source used, in which case replace the cartridge.
