The water cell is the heart of all AlkaViva ionizers. Manufactured in Japan to standards that makes AlkaViva the company of choice for large corporations such as LG, Samsung, Toyo and Hyundai - your Venus is guaranteed to not only make ideal alkaline and acid water but to continue to make the same quality water year after year. That is why IonLife was the first company to offer a five year warranty plus free shipping if any repair was required.
AlkaViva Science has used a proprietary matting between the Venus cell electrodes. With any water ionizer, it is essential that this material allow water to pass during ionization. What can happen; however, is that, unless there is an automatic cleaning cycle, very hard water will leave deposits on this material and eventually lower its transfer efficiency. The new proprietary matting used in the Venus water cell is extremely resistant to mineral deposits. Lime, iron, and other minerals are "sloughed off" enabling better ionization for a long period of time. The inner structure of the Venus water cell also enables a much better acid from alkaline water separation. This enhanced segregation between alkaline and acid water results in more efficient ionization as well as better isolation of any remaining chlorine or fluoride. This combination of efficient draining, improved matting, and revised inner structure enables the Venus to operate very efficiently on only one clean cycle of 10 seconds per every 20 liters.
The Venus controls have been designed with the Western kitchen in mind. The new control panel is membrane sealed making it easy to clean. A gentle touch on the buttons is all that is needed to change any setting.
a - Shows the different level of acid or alkaline
b - Gives an estimate of filter life - when last bar turns red it is time to order a new filter
c - Alkaline Water Indicator - illuminates when alkaline water is selected
d - Acid Water Indicator - illuminates when acid water is selected. A tune will always play when acid is selected or when Venus is in clean mode
e - Filtered Water Indicator - illuminates when filtered water is selected (filtered is clean but neither more acidic or alkaline)
f - Press this button for filtered water to come out the flexible drinking water hose
g - Press this button for acidic water to come out the flexible drinking water hose
h - Press this button for alkaline water to come out the flexible drinking water hose
i - Turns the sounds on and off. Also, volume level can be adjusted
j - Lights up when units is self cleaning - auto clean for 10 seconds every 20 liters
k - When this lights up unit needs to be serviced
Flow Control Knob
This special feature has been, until now, only available on much more expensive ionizers. This enables you to control the flow of water easily on your ionizer which in turn affects the strength of the alkaline water and -ORP. The slower the water flow the more time the water has to be altered by the ionization process. However, you will find that in almost all cases there will not often be a reason why you would need to slow the flow down due to the exception strength of the Venus's ionization chamber. The control knob though will prove very useful in helping to fine tune your preferred pH level so that you get the exact same pH level every time you use your Venus.
The Venus comes with the same .1M BioStone filter that is available in other top AlkaViva models. This filter is very effective at helping to remove many water contaminants and will give a good 1000 gallons of filtered water. You also have the option of purchasing the Venus with a .01M BioStone - the finest domestic filter available. AlkaViva has made replacing the BioStone filter so much easier with the Venus. One simply opens the filter compartment door, pushes the filter down on its spring loaded pedestal, and pulls the filter out. New filter installation is literally a "SNAP".
This special feature allows for exception user control as you can now reduce the voltage if your water is very hard or increase the voltage if your water is very soft. In the USA there are places like southern California and Texas where there is a lot of extra calcium in the water and this water is called hard. Because a high level of minerals (or TDS) will produce a higher than average pH you may wish to reduce the voltage so that your acid and alkaline settings show a good range of choices. On the other hand in places like Seattle the water lacks minerals and is called soft. By increasing the voltage in these areas you can get a high alkaline pH as well as a good acid pH.
1/4 inlet tube; better visually in your kitchen that the 3/8" tube on other models. Why? Smaller is less obvious, and even though you may not want to connect your 'Melody' to the mains, and hiding the inlet hose completely, the 1/4" tube looks far better than the bulky 3/8" hose on other models.Features of
