Congratulations! After careful research you’ve decided to invest in a water filter and ionizer and you are already enjoying the many benefits of drinking, clean, ionized H2 water. Although our ionizers are engineered with the greatest precision and need very little maintenance, there are still some things that you can do to ensure that you are drinking the freshest water possible and that your ionizer lives a long and healthy life.
Change your filters yearly
Most ionizers have some sort of built-in mechanism that helps the user determine the approximate time to replace the filter. However, it’s important to realize that these indicators are just estimates and to be used as a guide only.
No matter what the reading on your unit indicates, it’s important to replace the filter at least once a year depending on the hardness of your water. That means every 12 months no matter what the indicator says or how much you use the water. Here’s why.
Bacteria love to grow in damp dark places. What better place than the inside of a water filter?
Every filter will have media specific to bacteria – either killing bacteria, preventing bacteria from developing inside the filter or both. Whether or not water has been flowing through your water ionizer every day – or you have only been using it a couple of times a day – this “anti-bacterial” element never stops working. So after twelve months the filter will have lost its ability to fight bacteria and your water filter will not be able to deliver the water freshness that you desire.
So mark down on your calendar when you insert a new filter so that you’ll remember when to order the next one. But don’t worry if you forget. Here at Best Water we will give you a courtesy call once a year to remind you when to order new filters!
Clean your ionizer
Although changing your filter regularly will go a long way towards keeping your ionizer functioning smoothly, sometimes it just isn’t enough. In areas with hard water it’s inevitable that some hard water scaling will build up inside your unit and it may affect it’s functioning. Enter Ionopolis Z – a home cleaning system that you can use over and over again. This handy, easy to use cleaner is compatible with all ionizers. This is the most effective way to clean hard water scaling. Simply attach to your ionizer, turn it on and let it run for 1-2 hours depending on how dirty your ionizer is. Comes with citric acid cleaning solution.
