Water ionizers Trouble shooting

Please check out the following water ionizers troubleshooting suggestions before calling for repairing an water ionizer.

Symptom  Possible cause   Resolution 
The display panel of the water ionizer does not light up. Is the power cord plugged in correctly to an active outlet?  *Plug the power cord in properly.
Switch does not work. * Is the power plug connected to the outlet properly? * Is the fuse on the back of the water ionizer blown? * Plug the power cord in properly. * Check the fuse on the back of the water ionizer and replace it if necessary.
 Water does not flow out or the water ionizer unit has stopped functioning. * Is the source water valve line closed? * Is the source water line properly connected to the water ionizer? * Is the white water  hose bent? * Is the input water pressure too low? * Is the main water supply turned on or is the line frozen? * Is the water  filter clogged? * Running the acidic water on Acidic Level 3 for 10+ mins. through the water ionizer? * Turn the water supply valve on. * Be sure the water supply hose is connected properly. * Be sure the water line is not bent. * Replace the water filter. * If the water ionizer unit is leaking, turn off the water supply valve and contact customer service. * Replace the water filter. * Turn off the water  ionizer at the power switch for 5-10 minutes to allow for a reset period then turn the water ionizer back on.
Water is leaking from one water hose at the attachment to the water ionizer. * Check to see if the water  hose is disconnected from the water ionizer   Connect the hose snugly to the attachment to the water ionizer.
 The ionized or filtered  water has a strange odor or tastes bad. * Has the water ionizer been unused for a long time? * Has the drain water hose been immersed in water?  * Let acidic ionized water flow through the water ionizer & filters for 3minutes or more. If the water does not improve, replace the water filter. * Remove the drain hose from water
Even though the filter has been replaced, the filter life indicator still shows no-life. * Did you reset the water filter counter?  * Reset the water filter by pressing the filter replacement button \
There is a strange noise coming from the water ionizer. * Unknown. * Switch off and stop using the water ionizer and contact customer service.

Calcium in ionized water When filling your cup with alkaline water, white flakes are seen floating in the cup. * This large quantity of mineral flakes in the water may occur right after a filter change or first use of the water ionizer. There is no problem with drinking this water as it is mostly calcium which is not harmful to consume. When high alkaline water is left in a container, the water will form a white film around the edges or on the bottom. The substance is CaCO2 – bonded calcium, which falls to the bottom of the container. If you prefer to not have this white substance in your water, adjust the pH to a lower level which will reduce the possibility of calcium bonding. Calcium flakes form by bonding with hydrogen which is abundant in alkaline water. The presence of calcium is a sign that the water ionizer is functioning properly. If you would like to clean calcium out of any container, put a spoonful of vinegar in the container and fill it with water. Vinegar will dissolve the calcium. Leave the water in the container for 1 hour and shake the water out.   FEEL FREE TO CONTACT US FOR ANY HELP: +40758638401 Kindest Regards!   AlkaViva Team

Distilled Water and RO Filtered Water

Distilled Water and RO Filtered Water

by: Sang Whang

Water is a strong solvent; therefore, it carries many invisible substances: minerals, oxygen, nutrients, waste products, pollutants, etc. Pure water without any substance is as un-natural as a pocket of vacuum within a normal atmosphere. A pocket of vacuum will suck in any and everything around it until the pressure becomes equal to the surrounding.

Likewise, pure water will leach out any and every substance that it can dissolve from the substances that it comes into contact with, until its content is homogeneous with its surrounding or the water is saturated with substances so that it can no longer dissolve anymore substances.

Since the creation of this planet, rainwater has been washing down minerals from the mountains into the ocean. Ocean water has been saturated for a long time with specific minerals, yet rivers continue to carry down the minerals. The result is that at the bottom of the ocean there are tons of mineral deposits precipitated. If we knew how to recover the minerals from the bottom of the ocean, we would be very rich.

Distilled water and RO (reverse osmosis) filtered water contain NO minerals, simulating close to pure water. This pure water should be neutral with a pH value of 7. However, it measures acid pH! The reason for this phenomenon is that pure water sucks in carbon dioxides from the atmosphere. Although it measures acid pH, there are no acid minerals in that water. If pure water is stored in plastic bottle, the water smells plastic.

For this reason, distilled water or RO filtered water should be stored in glass bottles or special plastic bottles that can block carbon dioxide penetration. Coca Cola was bottled originally in glass bottles only. Then came the plastic bottle and it lost the fizzles. Then better plastic bottles came out that didn’t lose carbon dioxides; still plastic-bottled Coca Cola has to have expiration dates. Carbon dioxides penetrate through plastics, making pure water acidic.

In the 1980s and 1990s, the health food industry recommended that people eat certain types of healthy food and exclude other types of unhealthy food. Initially, people noticed a marked improvement of their health. However, staying with this healthy diet for several years, people suffered from nutritional deficiency syndrome, which the health food industry concluded as a sickness caused by pollutants in the drinking water. The health food industry began to sell distillers and RO filters to protect people. To me, this is a case of arriving at an erroneous conclusion because they totally misunderstood the facts.

In the 1950s distilled water was sold in drug stores with the label “Not for drinking!” Distilled water was used to fill car batteries and steam irons. Distilled water is NOT healthy because it will leach out valuable alkaline minerals from our body. However, I realize that I cannot change some people’s mind.
