Manual & FAQs

V150SGN Owner’s Manual

Question: Why are there black particles in my vaporizer?

Answer: The black particles that you see in your vaporizer are normal and do not affect the purity of the steam. These particles are the left-over minerals from your water. The reason the minerals turn black is because they have passed between the electrodes and have been charred. If the unit is maintained on a daily and weekly basis, you should not experience any problems with its performance.

Question: Why do I add salt to the water?

Answer: These units require water with minerals in it in order to function properly. If you have filtered water or are using distilled water, this can prevent the unit from steaming.
We recommend mixing one or two pinches of salt (1/8 tsp) to your water if the vaporizer does not produce steam after 10 minutes. Please wait ten minutes for the salt to have an effect, and if it is still not generating steam, or is only generating a little steam, then add a pinch or two more as needed, up to ½ tsp.
