We are pleased to offer for the first time in
the United States the electrolysis cleaning cartridge for the
Microwater ND-145 and ND-155 Water ionizer. Most customers have had
their water systems for at least ten years, so we expect significant
calcium build on the electrolysis plates of these machines. This
electrolysis cleaning cartridge will help you get more life out of
your water ionizer by cleaning the plates and internal hoses. Why is
Have you ever used a
pot to boil water over and over without washing it? What occurs? A
white film begins to build up. Well, this same water is running
through your machine and the electrolysis plates your machine works
by attracting the calcium and magnesium in your water to itself so
it can be ionized. This process will inevitably lead to a build up
of calcium on the electrolysis plates just like what you see in that
pot. What does this do? This scale build up forms a barrier between
the water and the electrolysis plate thereby reducing the effect of
the ionization. As this scale accumulates on plates your machine
will not be able to make the same quality alkaline water as when you
just bought it. Even though every machine has an automatic cleaning
cycle, over time it is not enough to control the calcium build up on
the plates. If this calcium build up continues and your water
ionizer is not effectively cleaned it will have trouble making
alkaline water and even worse the calcium build up could get
hardened over time.
The basic idea behind using the this cleaning
cartridge is to have the acid media in the cartridge mix with some
water and move from the cartridge to the electrolysis chamber of
your ionizer. This can be achieved by installing the cleaning
cartridge filter, then turn on the tap for a short period. Once
water start flowing through the flexible metal discharge hose, turn
off the tap. Allow the acid water to sock and dissolve any calcium
build up on the electrolysis plates. Let sit for a few hours and
then flush by running water for three to five minutes. Install your
regular cartridge filter and enjoy alkaline water.
