4. DESIGN AND PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION
4.1.
4.2.
The device consists of a lower container (1), a removable vessel (3) and an enclosure (9).
(See picture 1)
The lower container (1) is an electrolysis container. In the upper part of it two handles are
installed. (2) A removable semi round vessel is built in the container (3), in which
parchment partition with two plate form plastic retainers are set instead of the front wall
(4). Partition is fastened in the top with a fixer (5). On the inner side of the container and
the vessel there are two marks: lower (6) indicates minimum and upper (7) € maximum
water level.

4.3.
In the enclosure (9) an electrical scheme is installed that is covered from inside with a
plastic cover. In the cover flat electrodes (8;19) and round contact (18;mod.K) are fixed.
Flat electrodes are meant for production of activated water and round contact € for
connection of silver electrode (mod. K). . On the board (12) located on the top of the
enclosure three LEDs are mounted: the middle, green one (14), lights when the device is
operating (is switched on), simultaneously one of the red LEDs (11;15) lights which
indicate that activated or silvered water is produced.. On the other side of the enclosure
there is a cord with a plug (13).
4.4.
Parchment partition is fitted between two plastic plate form retainers in such way, that
arrows on the outer sides of the plates are directed downwards. Then partitions with
retainers (4) is mounted into special notches of the removable vessel (3) and fastened with
a fixer (5).
4.5.
During water electrolysis acidic water is generated at the black electrode (8) and alkaline
water - at the light one (19). Partition (4) of the removable vessel (3) doesn•t allow ionized
water to mix.
4.6.
When producing silvered water (mod. K), the removable vessel (3) is not necessary.
4.7.
A switch (16) is mounted on the enclosure (9) for switching the device on and off.
The device control scheme does not allow to switch on the modes of production of activated
and silvered water at one time.
5. PROPERTIES OF IONIZED WATER AND ITS APPLICATION
5.1.
Alkaline water (catholyte) - is a natural stimulator, stimulates growth of plants, accelerates
germination of seeds, flowering of domestic flowers, revives faded flowers, vegetables, etc.
It is a soft, odorless water having taste of rainwater.
5.2. Acidic water (anolyte) - is a natural bactericide, kills small pests, various microbes,
bacteria, fungi. It is good in disinfecting soil, tare, fresh vegetables, fruit, etc. It is a sourish
water having typical acid and weak chlorine odor.
5.3. Ionized water should be kept in tightly closed jars protecting it from direct sunlight. It not
recommended to keep it in refrigerator. Alkaline water preserves its properties for up to 3
days and acidic water - for up to 7 days.
5.4. Properties of ionized water are characterized by two indexes: ORP- oxidation- reduction
potential and pH … hydrogen index.
ORP is characterized by positive or negative charges (mV) that charge ionized water
(respectively anolyte + and catholyte -).
pH values can fluctuate between 0 to 14 units. Potable water is neutral, its pH is about 7,0.
pH of alkaline water fluctuates from 8,0 to 11,0 pH (the bigger this number, the more
alkaline water is) and of pH of acidic water is from 6 to 2,4 pH (the smaller this number,
the more acidic water is).
5.5.
In the 1st table dependence of pH and ORP values on the working duration of the device is
presented. These pH and ORP values have been obtained during testing of water used by
the company- producer. In case of different composition of water values can differ. A
minor difference of pH(+/-0,2-0,3) and ORP values does constitute practical influence.

It is essential to know that a negative oxidation - reduction potential acquired by ionized
alkaline water lasts a relatively short period of time. Keeping the alkaline ionized water in a closed
container from which water is continuously used, after 24 to 36 hours the negative ORP value
becomes practically zero or slightly positive. (These water pH values - 8.5 to 9.5 € last a much
longer period of time: 4-7 days). Therefore, ionized alkaline water should be used as fresher as
possible, or at least it should be used within 12 hours from its production.
Shops are available with ionized alkaline water in different containers, as indicated on
the label. However, this water, at best, can be considered alkaline, as the ORP value of the
water shall not remain negative.

Holding the lower container (1) on its handles (2) remove the enclosure (9) of the device.
Make sure the partition with retainers of the removable vessel (4) is tightly inserted into the
notches of the vessel.
Pour cold water from tap: first of all into the removable vessel (3) then into the lower
vessel (1) up to the lower marks (6).
Put the enclosure (9) on the lower container (1) so that the dark electrode (8) would get into
the removable vessel.(3).
Connect the cord with the plug (13) to the socket and turn on the switch (16). On the
enclosure (9) green (14) and red A (15) indicators light up. Set the working duration of the
device according to the chart 1.
After the set time passes pull the plug of the cord (13) from a socket, take off the enclosure
(9), pour out from the removable vessel (3) the acidic and then alkaline water into prepared,
tightly closed jars.
Just produced alkaline water is turbid and sometimes foamy. After pouring alkaline water
into a jar, sediments and foam precipitate on the bottom, water becomes clear and suitable
for using (the amount of sediments precipitated shows the level of contamination of water
and they shouldn•t be used).
Just produced acidic water has a slight acidic and chlorine odor and is sourish.
When working with the device water can heat up to 40 degrees.
Wash the removable vessel (3) and lower container (1) with water. It is PROHIBITED to
wash with water the enclosure (9) containing the electric part!
Clean the light electrode (19) and the contact (18) with soft cloth dipped in vinegar. It is
not necessary to clean the dark electrode (8).
Dry the lower container (1), the enclosure (9) and removable vessel (3) without taking out
the partition. Assemble the device and store it in dry place.
Notes:
1.
Use the device strictly to the sequence of operations.
2.
For production of ionized water use tap water.
3.
It is recommended to pour out (do not use) the produced ionized water after the first use in
a new appliance or after the change of the membrane.
The membrane is made from a special material suitable for electrolysis. Do not use other
materials than those specified by the manufacturer.
4.
After taking the removable vessels (3) out of the container (1) the membrane may slightly
leak through the bottom of the vessel. It does not affect the production of ionized water. If the leak
is more significant - the membrane must be changed.
5.
Anode electrode (the dark) is produced by using rare inert metals (ruthenium and iridium)
and oxide mixtures on the titanium base. These electrodes have good electrochemical and
physical-mechanical properties. Their longevity or life span is very high.
Anodes made from any other metal are not suitable for water ionizers as the emission of gases
takes place in an acidic medium during the electrolytic. Cl- ions contained in the solution are
soluble. In this way metal, from which the electrode is made, complex ions, from which Cr and Ni
ions or their compounds are very harmful to human health, enter the acidic water.
The dark electrode must be replaced in case of damage of the electrode„s covering layer.
7. PROPERTIES OF SILVERED WATER AND ITS APPLICATION
7.1.
7.2.
7.3.
7.4.
7.5.
7.6.
Silvered water kills microbes, bacteria. Small silver doses (0,01 mg/l) positively affect
organism.
Impact of silvered water depends on concentration of silver ions: the bigger this
concentration, the stronger the impact and the more quickly it begins. In the 2nd table silver
ions dependence on the working duration of the device is presented.
Silvered water preserves its bactericidal properties for several months.
For production of silvered water potable water is used. It is recommended to use filtered,
spring water, or tap water that has settled for several hours.
Silvered water of low concentration is entirely clear, tasteless and odourless it has to be
kept in dark premises. When boiling silvered water silver sediments precipitate and it
losses its properties.
If you regularly drink silvered water, its• concentration can not exceed 0,01 mg/l (UN 481994.). Such concentration is obtained when device is turned on for 2 seconds (see 2 table).
