On all alkalizers, there is a tendency for mineral or scale deposits to accumulate. This is nothing to be worried about but will result in a reduction in performance with regard to alkalizing ability.
To perform the cleanse:
- Remove the minerals cup from the AlkaPod
- Place into a glass and fill with white vinegar
- To extend the life of your filter, soak in white vinegar for 5 minutes every 3 months
- Dry in sunlight
Any white vinegar is OK for this task.
