The water supply to the water ionizer is attached to a sink faucet using a faucet head diverter valve. The alkaline water is
delivered through the flexible steel hose on the unit. The acidic water drain line (3/8” tube) from the water ionizer is
placed in the sink. The water ionizer power cord is plugged into a 120 Volt three-prong electrical outlet.
NOTE: Please begin drinking alkaline water gradually as it is detoxifying. For example, drink 16 oz. of Level 1 water

for several days, gradually increasing the amount you consume to your full daily amount of water. Increase one level
each week until you are drinking your full daily amount of water on Level 3.
Following this gradual procedure will minimize unpleasant effects of detoxification, such as cold or flu-like symptoms,
headaches, rashes, diarrhea and/or nausea. You may notice differences in bowel habits during the first days at each pH
level. Urine frequency may increase and color may darken as more water is consumed and your body detoxifies.
Eventually the color decreases as your body adjusts to the cleansing.

medications. Check with your physician to make sure prescribed medications for existing conditions will not be
adversely affected by drinking alkaline water on a daily basis.
The quality and content of the source water provided to the water ionizer has a direct affect on the quality of the
ionized water produced. This is true of ANY water ionizer. Tap water provided by municipal water companies
typically has a pH value between 7.1 and 7.3 and a moderate water hardness of between 80 and 140 parts per million.
NOTE: Insert water supply and drain lines into the quick connects until they will not go in any further. Use of the locking clip to prevent the
tube from coming loose is a must. Give each line a slight tug at the point of connection to make sure the lines are properly connected and
that they do not slip out. This step will ensure proper installation and avoid possible leaks from improperly installed lines.
Such water will generally result in the production of high quality ionized water. Water supplied from other sources
may vary considerably in quality and content. Low pH water (typical of some well water) may require an additional
pre-remineralization cartridge to enhance water ionization. Water with excessive sediment (typical of well water)
generally requires a sediment prefilter. Your Dealer can help you decide if additional water conditioning is required.
NOTE: To achieve optimal pH and ORP performance it may be necessary to install the re-mineralization cartridge between the source water
and C7 product. Depending on your local water TDS levels, it may be necessary to adjust the Ionizer plate power setting. Follow the
instructions for "Programing the C7".

Instructions for Cleaning the Electrode Plates
• To insure continued optimum water ionization, it is necessary that you clean the C7 ionization engine (electrodes)
every 2850 gallons . This is accomplished using a cleaning cartridge that contains citric acid. Citric acid is a common
food additive that poses no health risks.
• Adjust the water flow until there is a rapid sequence of drops coming out of the ionized water output hose.
• Let the water run (DRIP) for about ONE minute. This will insure that the ionization engine in full of cleaning fluid
(citric acid).
• This cleaning process requires that you (1) remove the expired water filter (2) install the cleaning cartridge and (3)
briefly operate the C7 to introduce the citric acid into the ionization engine. The citric acid must remain in the
ionization engine for five (5) hours to insure complete cleaning.
• After the cleaning process is completed, you will install a new water filter and then you can again produce and enjoy
high quality ionized water.
• Turn the water OFF. Let the C7 sit (unused) for 5 HOURS.
• After 5 hours has passed, remove the cork plug from the gray acid water drain tubing.
• Remove the cleaning cartridge. Turn the cleaning cartridge counter clockwise as far as it will go. Lift the cartridge out
of its seat.
• Discard the cartridge (the cartridge is designed to be used only once).
• Disconnect the C7 power cord.
3.
• Reinstall the filter or replace the filter if needed. Insert the filter cartridge
• Remove the water filter cover. Press the tab on the side of the cover. Swing the
cover on its hinges and remove it.
