Today we’re going to demonstrate the installation of the Life Ionizer 9100 convertible ionizer. The difference between the 91 convertible series and its 92, is that the 92 comes with a faucet, which allows you to install it under the sink.
Let’s start by going over what comes in the box. The 9200 Life Ionizer, the 9200 faucet, the reagent drops, the 9200 adapter, the cold water connection valve, the power cable, the quarter-inch supply line and the quarter-inch supply line to the faucet.
There’s going to be two extra parts in your box. That is the flexible spout and the faucet diverter valve. These are for the 9100 application. Today we’re doing the 9200 under the counter install, so we’re going to set these aside.
As you can see here, I’ve created a demo mount for the cold water supply line to replicate whats going on under your sink. This visual display will help you see whats going on behind the pipes.
The first thing you want to do is find the cold water faucet under your sink. Run some hot water for a minute or two, so you can feel which copper line leading to the faucet is warm, then pick up the other faucet.
Now that we’ve determined which is the cold water connection valve, we’re going to tighten the valve in a clock-wise direction to turn off the water flow. Once that’s tightened you’ll want to remove the steel braided line. Now we’re going to install the cold water connection valve. If you look on the side right here, this regulates flow by tightening this clockwise is going to restrict flow, by loosening it, its going to increase flow. When putting it on here you can also put Teflon tape if you want to.
The next thing we’re going to do is cut a piece of quarter-inch supply line and connect it in between the T-valve and the in on the pre-filter. Make sure you measure before you cut. The first thing you’re going to do is remove this nut from the T-valve, then you’re going to place it over the tube, slide the supply line over and then thread this on.
(2:51) Then get your pre-filter, look for the in with that arrow pointing that way. Then you’re going to press this in and it’s going to go in about a half-an-inch.
(3:01) So now we’re going to connect the quarter-inch water supply line to the out in the pre-filter, which is right here with the arrow pointing that way to the in on the bottom of the ionizer, which is right here, the long one. The first we have to do is remove these plugs. There’s one on the in and one on the out. It’s very straight forward. What you’re going to do is press down on this ring on the top and then pull the plug out.
(3:35) Now we’re going to connect the water supply line from the out on your pre-filter to the in on the bottom of your ionizer. I’ve already cut a piece, so make sure that before you do yours that you cut a piece that will fit. So you’re going to plug this straight in here and then plug that in to the in on the ionizer.
(3:58) Now we’re going to install the supply line from the acidic outlet on the ionizer to the acidic side on your faucet. Keep in mind – on your faucet that it’s going to be labeled red with the word acidic. Next we’re going to connect the quarter-inch supply line to the outlet, which is the acidic outlet on the ionizer. And we’re going to plug in the power cable.
And remember when you’re installing the quarter-inch supply line; press them as far as possible in to the fitting. Once they’re in to the fitting, you want to give them a little tug to make sure they’re tight.
(4:43) Now we’re going to move on the installing the faucet. You’re going to need a hole in your counter to install this faucet. This hole diameter is about a inch and a quarter to an inch and three-eighths – standard size for most soap dispensers, so if you have a soap dispenser you can remove that place the faucet in there. If you need to drill a hole, you may want to contact a professional.
(5:04) I’ve set up this demo and this has the sink hole, so what I’m going do is remove this piece from here and you still have this rubber piece you’ll want to leave this rubber piece in. And you’re going to want to feed the electrical cord through there first along with their fittings. Once that’s in there, position it in whichever position you’d like and then we’re going to tighten it.
(5:55) Now that I have the faucet installed we’re going to move on to the acidic tube coming out of the bottom of the ionizer on the out. So you’re going to take that tube and run it to the acidic side of the faucet. It’s labeled acidic. The first thing we’re going to do is remove this dust plug. Once that’s removed we’re going to install this adapter. It has threads on there, so you’ll just want to tighten it in a clock-wise direction. There’s no need to really tighten it that much. It has 0-rings behind it that will put a good seal.
(6:36) Now that I’ve installed the adapter I’m going to connect a quarter inch supply line from the adapter to the alkaline side on your faucet. And keep in mind that “Alkaline” is written right here in blue.
(6:55) Now that you’ve installed the quarter-inch supply line from your adapter to the alkaline side of the faucet we’re going to install the electronic link to the back of the ionizer. So you’re going to take this plug and you’re going to remove this and we’re going to look on this side of the link and there should be a groove. What you’re going to want to do is find the groove inside there and match them up, press down and tighten this. Make sure it doesn’t move around and it’s tight.
(7:34) Before applying power and water pressure to the ionizer, let do a little re-cap of what we just did. First off, we installed the T-valve to the cold water connect. Then we ran a quarter-inch supply line to the in on the pre-filter. From the out of the pre-filter we went to the in on the bottom of the ionizer. From the out of the bottom of the ionizer we went to the acidic line on the faucet. Then we installed the adapter, ran another quarter-inch tube to the alkaline side of the faucet. Then after that we installed to plug to the electronic link on the faucet.
(8:25) Now were ready to apply water pressure to the ionizer and check for leaks. Now we’re going to go to the cold water faucet and spin it in a counter-clockwise direction to turn on the water pressure towards the ionizer. At this time, everything should be filling up – the pre-filter. Now would be a great time to check for leaks at your T-valve and your pre-filter.
(8:52) Now that you’ve checked for leaks, we’re going to apply power to the unit by plugging this in to the wall. Then we’re going to go under the ionizer and there is a switch on the bottom. And you’re going to want to switch it to the line. Now that your unit is powered up you should have a light on your faucet and the front of your ionizer.
(9:15) Now that your units powered on you’re going to press the on/off button on the faucet and the units is going to start cleaning itself. When you’re using this faucet there’s going to be an LED on the top and it’s going to have the numbers 1, 2, 3 or 4 that would be your alkaline or acid levels. If your alkaline light is on and it’s a number 3, you’re on alkaline level 3. If you’re choosing alkaline water, alkaline water will be coming out of your top spout; acidic water will be coming out the bottom spout. If you choose acidic water, acidic water is going to be coming out of the top spout. Any selection you do up here will be coming out of the top spout.
(10:04) Now for the final thing is going to be your pH test, which you’re going to want to do is set your unit to alkaline level 4 and collect a sample of water from the top spout, drop three drops of the reagent drops in there and hopefully it’ll turn purple. If it turns purple it means your ionizer is working correctly. If you have any issues, call tech support.
