pH Reagent Liquid Precautions

  • It is combustible. DO NOT expose the pH measuring reagent to extreme heat, flames, or fire.
  • DO NOT drink the pH reagent liquid and avoid contact with the eyes and skin. If the liquid is ingested, induce vomiting immediately and call a doctor. If the liquid gets in the eyes, flush immediately and thoroughly with cool water. Call a doctor. If exposed to your skin, wash it immediately.
  • Make sure to keep the pH reagent liquid tightly closed and out of the reach of children.

SOME HELPFUL TIPS

  • DO NOT store alkaline water in stainless steel, bronze or aluminum containers. Glass or ceramic is best for storing your alkaline water, but you can also use a high-quality plastic container.
  • Always try and keep your stored water cool and away from direct sunlight.
  • Water is always best fresh out of the machine and ideal if consumed on a day-to-day basis.
  • Save the box and styrofoam your machine came in. This will help if your machine needs to be transported at a later date.
  • If you are using your machine downstream of a reverse osmosis system or running reverse osmosis water in your home, remineralization of the water will be needed if you want strong acid water.

  • Press the desired water type: Hydrogen (H2) Water, Alkaline Water, or Acidic Water hypochlorous, or Filtered

operations2.png

Note: 

The water may initially come out discolored (light to charcoal gray) due to carbon particles in the new filter. This is not harmful and is typical of all carbon filters. Allow the water to flow for two to three minutes in the "Filtered" mode and this will flush out all the carbon dust.

 

HYDROGEN WATER / FILTERED WATER

When Drinking Hydrogen Water

Press the “HYDROGEN” button to begin flow of hydrogen water. You will hear a voice confirmation that "Echo Hydrogen Water" has been selected, and the display panel will show a blue symbol. The Echo hydrogen water comes out of the top spout. Nothing comes out of the bottom spout. 

hydrogenwater1.png 

What would I use the hydrogen water for?

The pH of hydrogen water is neither raised nor lowered and would be the same as your source water. You can use it as both drinking water as well as taking medications. There are many studies showing benefits from molecular hydrogen (H2).

hydrogenwater2.png

When Drinking Filtered Water

Press the "FILTERED" button to begin flow of filtered water. In this mode, electrolysis is not working. You will hear a voice confirmation that “Filtered Water" has been selected, and the display panel will show a green symbol. The Echo filtered water comes out of the top spout. Nothing comes out of the bottom spout.

ALKALINE WATER (Has H2 Gas Dissolved)

When Drinking Alkaline Water

Higher than 10pH water is not recommended for drinking for long periods of time.

1. You will hear a voice confirmation that "Alkaline Water" has been selected, and the display panel will show a blue symbol and purple number corresponding to the level selected. Press the "ALKALINE" button to select the desired setting from levels 1 to 4.

alkalinewater1.png

2. Whenever you press alkaline water selection button repeatedly, it changes level of alkaline water.

alkalinewater2.png Note: 

Your machine will always "remember" the last setting used. If the previous selection was Alkaline Level 2, when you select “Alkaline Water” again, it will automatically produce water at Alkaline Level 2. We do not recommend drinking alkaline water. However, some people choose to drink alkaline water.

Follow the guideline below:

alkaline1.png

Level One: Weak Alkaline Water

For those who drink alkaline water, this level is used for initial consumption period (4-7 days). Let your body adjust slowly to this increase in pH.

alkaline2.png

Level Two: Weak to Medium Alkaline Water

Those who drink alkaline water should move up to this level after the initial adjustment period. Adjust to this level for three to four days. Alkaline water drinkers often consume level 2 or 3.

alkaline3.png

Level Three: Medium to Strong Alkaline Water

If you choose to drink this level of alkaline water, you may start to detect a strong taste. You may notice calcium buildup on glasses. You can clean it with vinegar. This level can be used for cooking. However, we recommend cooking with filtered water.

alkaline4.png

Level Four: Strong Alkaline water

This level is used for deep cleaning things like kitchen counters and washing fresh vegetables. Generally, most people find Level 4 to have a very strong taste. We recommend against drinking water at a 10 pH or higher on a regular basis.

 

Alkaline Level 1 is 1 pH higher than your source water. Each level of alkaline will increase the pH of the water 1 pH higher than the last setting.

 

ACID WATER (Hypochlorous Acid)

caution.jpg

Acidic water is not drinking water. Be careful not to drink acidic water, confusing it with alkaline water or hydrogen water.

When Using Acidic Water

Acidic water has many uses, including washing the face, brushing the teeth, as a mouthwash, or washing the body. It is also recommended for cleaning surfaces or creating a natural household cleaner. Level 1 acidic water can irrigate plants and flowers. When using with plants, pay attention to the pH that is best for the plant.
 

1. Press the "ACIDIC" button to select the desired acid levels, from 1 to 4. You will hear a voice confirmation that "Acidic Water" has been selected, and the display panel will show an orange symbol and an orange number corresponding to the level selected.

2. Whenever you press the acidic water selection button repeatedly, it changes the level of acidic water. Acid water has hypochlorous acid, which can be an effective disinfectant. The level of disinfectant is dependent on the ppm of HOCL.

Note: Your machine will always "remember" the last setting used. If the previous selection was Acid Level 2, when you select Acid Water again, it will automatically produce water at Acid Level 2.

 

Some uses for the different levels of acidic water

Descriptions of acidic water levels. Note: pH levels will vary, based on your tap water. 

acidic1.png

Level One: Weak Acidic Water

Facial cleansing. Used for oral hygiene, mouth wash, irrigating flowers and plants, etc.

acidic2.png

Level Two: Weak to Medium Acidic Water.

Used for skin care, as an astringent, and oral hygiene, gargling washing your hair, etc.

IMPORTANT! Stop water flow prior to filter replacement.

1. Stop water flow by turning the power switch on the back side of the product to the OFF position.

2. When the digital filter life indicator displays 0000 or you see the flickering filter symbol, it is time to replace your filter.

3. If you do not replace the filter, the machine will no longer function until you change the filter with a genuine filter.

replace1.png

4. Open the filter door.

Press gently on the indentation on the side of the filter door to open.

replace2.png

5. Remove the expired filter.

Take hold of the filter securely with your hand, press the top of filter firmly down against the spring-loaded mechanism (Figure 1) to disengage the top of the filter and then pull it toward yourself (Figure 2) and up to remove it.

The upper part of the filter is separated from housing by pressing firmly down. Once you have engaged the spring-loaded mechanism, you can easily remove the filter from the main body by pulling it toward yourself. 

 

6. Insert the new filter into the compartment.

Remove the plastic caps covering both ends of the new filter.

Set the large opening (on the bottom of the filter cartridge) onto the base in the center of the filter cushion. Push the filter down and into the housing compartment, ensuring that the opening at the top of the filter is seated properly into the fitting at the top of the housing.

 

7. Once the new filter is installed, rotate the filter until the arrow on the filter is aligned with the arrow on the machine.

Your Echo® filter is equipped with a genomic chip. This chip communicates with the machine how much water has flowed through the filter.

8. The filter life indicator will automatically reset once the machine detects a new filter present.

caution.jpg

Check for leaks by running water through your machine before replacing the housing cover.

 

9. Flush out the carbon dust.

The water flowing through will initially come out discolored (light to charcoal gray) due to carbon particulates in the new filter. It is not harmful.

Allow the water to flow for two to three minutes in the "Filtered" mode to flush out all the carbon dust.

 

10. Replace the filter door.

High Performance Carbon Filter

The effective period of filter use may differ greatly depending on the season, usage, and environment (i.e. water pressure, quality, of source water and, amount of use).
 

caution.jpg

Please replace the filter when prompted by the machine or if any of the following occur:

- The water no longer tastes clean.

- Your machine has not been in use for a month or more.

 

MEASURING THE PH OF WATER

Important Note

Water quality and mineral content vary greatly in different Iocations and will directly impact machine performance with respect to pH and hypochlorous acid production.
 
ph1.png Fill the test container provided about 1/2 full with alkaline, acidic,filtered water or H2 water. 
ph2.png

Add two or three drops of the pH reagent into the container and stir.

If the reagent and water are not mixed well, an incorrect reading may occur.

ph3.png The pH value is determined by matching the color of the water to the pH color chart provided. A digital pH meter is more accurate than reagent.
 
caution.jpgCAUTION
  • DO NOT consume water containing pH reagent.
  • Keep the pH reagent Iiquid and color chart away from open flames!
  • If the liquid comes in contact with the eyes, flush liberally with fresh water and seek medical help.
  • If ingested, induce vomiting, and seek medical help.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE

Please check the following before calling Technical Support. If the issue continues, please contact Technical Support at (855)737-1114 and press 3 or email support@echowater.com

Abnormal Condition Cause(s) Resolution
The Function Display Panel does not come on. The power plug is not properly inserted, or it is inserted into a faulty outlet. Properly insert power plug into a correctly functioning power outlet.

The fuse is blown.

The fuse is not inserted properly.

Replace the fuse. A spare fuse is located in the rear-panel fuse holder. (5A / 250V fuse)
pH test shows alkaline water color as neutral (7) while acidic water color gets yellow (6). This is normal Faulty or evaporated reagent: alkaline / acidity are always produced in inverse proportions. Therefore, showing an acidic color means inversely that alkaline water has to be generated from the unit. Lack of alkaline color can result from a chemical reaction where carbonic acid in water evaporates some test reagent elements.

Test pH value on level 3 or 4 water: replace reagent.

Test TDS of source water.

The optimal TDS is 75-150 ppm.

Power supply is suddenly turns off while operating the unit. Elevated level of salt in the water or high TDS, extended operation at high pH, or sudden change in electrical current. In these cases, your machine will shut down automatically to protect the electrodes and circuitry. Wait — the unit will become operational again after about one hour. Your machine has a safety mechanism built in to protect the electrodes and circuitry. This mechanism will shut the machine down automatically. This mechanism protects the unit from damage or excessive electric current.
Low output of alkaline water from the unit. Filter is clogged. Premature clogging may be caused by sudden drop in water quality and high level of sediment or other contaminants, which clog the filter. Replace your filter or clean dust pre-filter. There may be calcium buildup in the top spout. Clean the machine with the cleaning cartridge. Call customer support to order a new filter and cleaning cartridge.
Low pressure in your household plumbing. Ensure water supply valves are fully open. The water pressure in the house may be too low.
The input hose is bent, kinked, or otherwise restricted. Straighten any bent hose.
The Function Display Panel / display indicators do not come on even after turning the tap on.

Faulty PCB

(Printed Circuit Board)

Immediately unplug the unit and contact customer service to arrange service.
Strange smell from alkaline water.

Expired filter from ordinary use or premature clogging due to contaminants in water quality.

Replace your filter.

Sudden change in water quality with elevated level of sulfur (not chlorine). Elevated sulfur levels are observed in some areas during summer months. These levels fall within safe drinking water standards, yet will cause a reaction with electrolyzed water, causing a sulfur smell.

 

Select lower pH level (1-2). If still present, filter replacement may be necessary.
Alkaline water appears murky; (white, snow-like particles in the bottom of your glass).

You have high hardness (primarily calcium) in your water. The white is extracted CaCO3 (calcium carbonate). After CO2 in water is bonded with Ca where elevated levels of CO3 exist in your water. In water where elevated levels of CO3 exist, what you see after electrolysis is calcium carbonate.

This is calcium and is harm- less. You can lower the alkaline setting to 1 or 2. Lower the voltage to the electrodes. Typically, this only occurs in extremely hard water. You can also add a softening pre-filter.
At first no smell, but then smell from the alkaline water about one hour after.

Expired filter.

It could be dishwasher detergent or hard water deposits on the bottle/cup that you are using

Replace your filter.

When the alkaline water comes in contact with it, it will react to the hard water or detergent. Clean your bottle/cup using 1 part vinegar, 3 parts water.

Water leakage from the filter cartridge housing.

Filter not installed correctly into filter housing.

Remove your filter and

reinstall it, properly following the filter replacement instructions. Increase the quantity of source water inflow.

 

No acid water flow from the bottom water outlet.

Bottom water outlet hose is bent, kinked, or otherwise restricted.

Straighten the bent hose. Increase water flow from supply.
