Instruction for Mineral Cube Replacement:
- Replace the mineral cube when "CC" (change cube) appears on the display.
- Place the new cube inside the bottom of the pitcher, then turn the cube clockwise to secure it properly inside the pitcher.
- Fill the whole pitcher with water.
- Run the machine for 9 minutes to clean the cube.
- Throw the water away.
- To clear previous minutes used, press the minute and start/stop button simultaneously for 2 to 3 seconds. CL (clear) will appears on the display.
- You are ready to use your Vitalizer Plus Water System.
Note: To take out and unlock the cube from the pitcher, turn the cube counter clockwise.
When To Replace
The Vitalizer Plus™ is equipped with a digital timer that records that amount of running time. After 4000 minutes (approx. 65 hours), “CC” will appear on the digital display, indicating that it is time to “Change the Cube.” For a single person making one batch (.6 gallons) of 9-minute water every day, the mineral cube will last well over 1 year (15 months). Greater use will precipitate the replacement of the mineral basket more frequently. After replacing the mineral basket, simultaneously hold down both the “minutes” and the “start/stop” button for 3-4 seconds, with the power button on. This will clear the digital timer and you will notice that “CL” replaces the “CC” – ready for another 4000 minutes of operation.
What is the significance of adding minerals to the water?
Certain minerals (especially calcium and sodium) actually help water to hold its structure. The addition of minerals, supplied by the mineral basket in the bottom of the Vitalizer Plus™, not only help to stabilize the structure of the water, they also alkalize the water – often raising the pH from an acidic to an alkaline condition. One of the difficulties with both distilled and RO (reverse osmosis) water is that the pH is very acidic (often below 5.0). This can contribute to an acidic condition in the human body which has been linked to a number of degenerative diseases. The addition of tiny amounts (approx. 8-10 parts per million) of minerals is enough to help stabilize the structure of the water, raise the pH, and provide highly charged ionic minerals which are easily absorbed by the body.
What kind of minerals are in the mineral cube?
Calcium is the most predominant mineral in the mineral cube. It is provided from coral calcium—a natural form of calcium and other minerals. Coral calcium also contains other minerals in a balanced blend provided by nature. Tourmaline is also included because it adds negative ions and far infrared frequencies that resonate with the frequency of the water. It naturally alkalizes the water and helps to structure the water.
