How to clean your Kangen Machine using Enagic's reusable e-cleaner cartridge.

The system consists of a Cleaning Powder Unit (CPU) and packets of powder or a bulk container of citric acid powder.
Remove the cap from the CPU unit and pour one packet of powder, or a brimming scoop from your bulk container, in the unit then put the cap on and tighten it.
EXTREMELY IMPORTANT! Before you start, shut off the machine and unplug it from the wall. Now remove the filter cover and twist off the white plastic ring at the base of the filter turning it counter-clockwise (left) to loosen it, then lift the filter off to remove it and set it aside. Make sure the o-rings on the filter did not get left behind!

Place the CPU where the filter was, and then replace and tighten the white plastic ring.Take care that there is no cross threading when you tighten the white plastic ring.

Turn on the water and allow the water to flow slowly through the hoses until water is coming from both the flexible hose and the gray hose. Have a glass or cup at the ready on the side.

With the water running, place the end of flexible hose and the end of the grey secondary hose in a cup allowing the cup to retain water through the entire length of the hose, and leave them in the cup for 3 to 5 hours (we suggest overnight, but no more than 9 hours).

With CPU still in place remove the hose ends from the cup after 3 to 5 hours (or the suggested overnight), turn on the faucet and allow water to flow through the machine for about 2-3 minutes at full flow rate, then turn off the water. You can taste a bit of the water, if it is sour, then let the water run longer.

Now replace the original filter and the white plastic ring that you removed in step 1, then turn on the water again and allow it to flow through the machine for about 1 minute. There is a possibility that calcium may flow from the hoses so dispose of this water.

Replace the filter cover, plug in your machine, and turn on the power and your machine is now ready to use.

Lastly, rinse any residue out of the CPU and let it air dry, then store it in a place where it will not be subjected to dust.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If the 0-rings or CPU cap becomes broken, please replace immediately. With proper care, it is expected that you will be able to use the CPU for 3 years.
