Specifications & Requirements
The Ionizer Plus is available for 110V and 220V power.
Water electrolyzers, including the Ionizer Plus, should not be used with water softeners. Water softeners typically exchange the calcium in the water for sodium, making the water high in sodium. The water electrolyzer then further concentrates that sodium. Most people’s diet is already sufficient or high in sodium, so consuming such water is not recommended.
People with water softeners who want to use the Ionizer Plus will have a plumber run a cold-water line that bypasses the softener. In difficult situations, it can be easier to run a cold-water line off of an outdoor faucet – the outdoor faucets should have bypassed the softener because the high sodium (salt) content is bad for watering plants.
Some kitchens have replaced standard faucets with sprayer faucets. The Ionizer Plus comes with two faucet attachments which work for most standard faucets, but they cannot be used with sprayer faucets. Our customers with sprayer-faucets typically put their Ionizer Plus in a laundry room, bath room, or some other location with a standard faucet. Some customers have a plumber install a separate ionizer-only faucet in their kitchen sink.
Cold Water Only
Granular activated carbon filters, such as the one used in the Ionizer Plus, cannot have hot water run through them. The hot water causes the carbon to clump together effectively clogging the filter. One advantage to having a faucet dedicated to your Ionizer Plus is that you can have the faucet tapped from the cold water line without an ability to run hot water out of it.
