Every Water Ionizer must
be equipped with the ability to clean the Platinum/Titanium Plates
within the Ionization Chamber.
A Water Ionizer has an Ionization
Chamber with two compartments, one with positive plates and the
second with negative plates. The negatively charged plates attract
the positively charged minerals, which are the alkaline minerals.
The Cleaning Cycle directly
affects the quality of the water and the overall efficiency of
the unit. It also will influence the durability or longevity
of the Water Ionizer - that is, how many years it will last.
Without self-cleaning the Platinum/Titanium Plates will have
a tendency to build up deposits, which can lead to lower operating
efficiency and ultimately corrosion of the all-important plates.
The Cleaning Cycle in a
Water Ionizer can be manual or automatic. The Automatic Cleaning
Cycle is preferred. The manual cleaning cycle requires the user
to put the Water Ionizer through a short cleaning cycle at least
once a day.
A Water Ionizer with an
Automatic Cleaning Cycle means the cleaning cycle is performed
automatically, usually at the end of each use. As the user, you
will never have to be concerned about being sure a daily cleaning
cycle is completed. And because the cleaning cycle is activated
after every use, it is much more thorough than manual cleaning.
It is a definite convenience, but will also extend the life of
the Water Ionizer.
