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.
Fill a pot with structured water high enough to submerge your UMH water device; bring to a boil, turn off heat and wait 10 minutes to cool down.
Add 6 tablespoons (TBS) of baking soda and solve in hot water. Submerge the UMH water structuring device fully and let sit for 30 minutes. Use a ladle to carefully submerge your device.
Then rinse the device under running water and let dry. Reattach all parts of your UMH device and make sure you put all rubber/cardboard washers back in place.
If you restructure other liquids (e.g. wine, whiskey, tequila, vodka, etc.) please rinse the device right after. Do not structure any liquids that contain sediments like fruit flesh, also no tea, coffee, milk or carbonated drinks.
Undo all parts and rubber washers. Detach the golden ball from the UMH Alpha horizontally and leave the golden nozzle attached to the Alpha stand and remove the glass funnel.
Undo all parts and rubber washers. Detach the golden nozzle on the bottom of the UMH Live and remove the lab-grade plastic funnel.
Undo all parts and rubber washers. Detach the UMH Delta main housing from the stand and remove the glass funnel.
