Caring for your
new water ionizer is surprisingly easy. Most of our water ionizers are

replace your cartridge filter at least once a year. This
guideline will guard against bacteria growth. Again it doesn't

If you follow
these guidelines you should have your machine working flawlessly
for many years.
