For the vaporizer to operate in areas of low or moderate mineral-content water, 4 TO 5 PINCHES OF SALT (1/8 teaspoon) MUST BE ADDED TO THE WATER AND MIXED THOROUGHLY. If an adequate steam flow is not obtained after ten minutes, add another PINCH or two as needed, mix thoroughly. CAUTION: Add salt only by the PINCH, since too much salt can cause excessive boiling, a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker. FINGER GRIPS If you live in a “hard-water” area, the vaporizer may operate well without salt additive. The salt and other minerals in your water remain inside the vaporizer and do not affect the purity of the steam. ® End-Of-Season Maintenance/Storage: OWNER’S MANUAL Send your order to Kaz Consumer Service Orders, 250 Turnpike Road, Southborough, MA 01772.
