After boiling structured water 90% of the structure will remain. The loss of 10% is insignificant; we recommend to use cold structured water, then boil it and then use it for your coffee or tea. We also recommend to structure your water first before adding tea, coffee or other ingredients. Do not run liquids through your UMH device that contain sediments! It will be hard to clean afterwards.
Yes. You can use your water structuring device for other clear liquids without large sediments. Wine, whiskey, vodka, tequila and other clear alcoholic beverages are fine to use. Juices, milks and carbonated liquids are not equipped for any UMH water structuring device. When using other liquids besides water make sure to rinse your UMH device with clear water right after.
Yes. Depending on your device there is a little bit of uptake required. All inline devices are completely free of maintenance. The UMH Alpha, Live and Delta need to be maintained and cleaned 1-2 times per year.
One time is fully sufficient. If you want to, you can run it through several times which will increase the crystallinity every time you run.
Depending on the degree of your water filtration, you need to consider the right order of processing steps. If you are using demineralized water – either by distilling it or using a reverse osmosis (RO) system, you need to remineralize your water after the filtration process.
Step: Filtration; distillation or RO filtration (demineralization).
Step: Remineralization; adding trace minerals by hand or using an inline remineralization cartridge.
Step: Restructuring; running the water through your UMH device by hand or your installed UMH inline water structuring device.
Running your water through your UMH device is always the last step in the processing order for your clean, filtered and structured drinking water.
