A person who has not read and understood all operating and safety instructions is not qualified to operate this appliance. CAUTION: Basic safety precautions should always be followed to avoid risk of fire and electric shock. Because boiling water is generated in this appliance, basic safety precautions should always be followed to avoid risk of burns from hot steam and scalding water, especially when children are present. READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USE. HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY. 1. WARNING: Steam and hot, boiling water will scald the skin and result in severe burns. Water in the boiler tank is heated to boiling (212° F). Even water at 130° F can cause severe burns. ALWAYS seek immediate medical attention for burns caused by hot, boiling water or steam. To avoid risk of severe burns: • DO NOT allow children or persons with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities to operate the Distiller. • DO NOT allow children near the Distiller without close supervision. Warn others of possible risks. • DO NOT change position or location of Distiller while it is operating or cooling. Wait at least 30 minutes after a completed cycle or 5 hours if cycle is interrupted before moving the distiller. • DO NOT lift boiling tank cover while Distiller is operating or cool- ing. Wait at least 30 minutes after a completed cycle or 5 hours if cycle is interrupted before lifting the cover. • DO NOT unplug Distiller from electrical outlet once cycle has been started and the fan and red indicator light are on. Press reset button if the cycle is accidentally interrupted. • DO NOT operate in a moving conveyance such as RV or boat. • DO NOT use outdoors. Use INDOORS on a dry, level, well-support- ed surface ONLY. • DO NOT place Distiller on a tablecloth or near the edge of the sup- ported surface where it can be bumped or pulled down. 2. DO NOT attempt to make safe drinking water from non-potable sources. Use with potable water only. DO NOT use salt water as this will damage certain components and void warranty. Appliance has not been tested or certified by the California Department of Public Health. 3. ALWAYS operate in a well-ventilated area away from other heat sources. Provide adequate air space (at least 4 inches from walls or cabinets) when in use. 4. DO NOT place, store or stack anything on top of or against sides of Distiller while in operation. 5. DO NOT place on or near a hot gas or electric burner. 6. ALWAYS make sure collection/storage bottle is properly positioned with spout cover of lid in the open position for proper water collection (fig. B, page 5). DO NOT remove collection/storage bottle while Distiller is operating. 7. DO NOT operate without water in the boiler tank. Permanent dam- age may occur. 8.

To avoid risk of overfilling or spilling, use a pitcher to fill the boiler tank. 9. DO NOT use appliance for cooking, heating, humidifying or any other purpose except making distilled water. 10. DO NOT attempt to repair the Distiller. There are NO user serviceable parts inside. If servicing becomes necessary, please contact your authorized dealer or an authorized service facility. See warranty for service details (Page 12). ELECTRIC CORD STATEMENT 1. Plug Distiller into a grounded electrical outlet only. 2. A short power supply cord is provided to reduce risks resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. If an extension cord must be used, DO NOT allow cord to hang over the edge of counter or contact hot surfaces. 3. To prevent electric shock, injury or fire, a grounded extension cord must be rated at least as great as the electrical rating shown on bottom of the Distiller. 4. DO NOT operate with a damaged cord or plug, after a malfunction, or if the Distiller has been damaged in any manner. Return to an authorized dealer or authorized service facility for examination, repair or replacement. 5. To prevent electrical shock or personal injury, DO NOT immerse power cord, boiler tank or cover in water or liquid. 6. Fan cord receptacle is for Distiller use ONLY. 7. Unplug from wall outlet when not in use and before cleaning. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS 3 Figure A 4 HOW IT WORKS This appliance produces distilled water by using the oldest, most effective method of water treatment–steam distillation. When the Distiller is operating, the water temperature rises to 212° F (100° C), killing bacteria, cysts, and viruses that may be present. As boiling water 1 converts to steam 2, it rises and leaves behind dead microbes, dissolved solids, salts, heavy metals, and other substances. Low boiling light gases that may be present are discharged through the gaseous vent 3. Steam is then cooled in the stainless steel condenser 4, turning it into distilled water which percolates through a final polishing coconut shell carbon filter 5 to enhance quality by adsorption of VOCs (volatile organic compounds), then is collected in the borosilicate glass collection/storage bottle 6. PREPARING FOR FIRST TIME USE Clean Collection/Storage Bottle Lift off Cover from Boiler Tank and remove the borosilicate glass collection/storage bottle (fig. B) from INSIDE Distiller. Carefully remove contents and assemble per instructions included inside bottle. • Fill bottle approximately three-fourths full with warm tap water • Add one or two drops of dish detergent and wash bottle interior • Rinse thoroughly Figure B CoverFilter Cup Spout Boiler Tank Collection/Storage Bottle Reset ButtonIndicator Light Protective Liner Rinse and Sterilize Carbon Filter Cup Turn the Cover upside down on countertop. Remove the filter cup by pushing inward and lifting up to unhook (fig. C). Before installing new filter cup, remove plastic and the two protective seals (one on top and one on bottom) and discard. Pour 1 to 2 cups of boiled or distilled water through filter cup to rinse away any small harmless carbon fines (dust). Water draining from the filter cup may contain black dust. This is normal. This carbon dust is formed as a result packaging and shipping of filter cup. 5 Once water runs clear through the filter, to ensure optimum water purity, sterilize filter cup by fully immersing in boiling water for about five min- utes. DO NOT microwave. Carefully remove filter cup from boiling water and allow to cool before handling. Rinse briefly with boiled or distilled water before installing. Install Filter Cup There is a label packaged with each filter cup. Write in the date of installation as a replacement reminder and affix label to filter cup. Place the sterilized filter cup into opening of distiller spout. Hook the filter cup tab under cover gasket and apply light, downward pressure away from Cover until the filter locks into place (fig. D). Clean Boiler Wash inside of boiler with soap and water. Rinse thoroughly. The unit is now ready for use. Operational maintenance and replacement requirements are essential for this product to perform as advertised.

Boiler Tank Rinse the boiler tank with warm water before every distillation cycle to remove any loose residue. As scale deposits accumulate, use an approved cleaner, such as KLEENWISE, to remove deposits. You may also use a diluted solution of one cup white vinegar to every two cups of water. DO NOT operate Distiller with cleaning solution in boiler tank. Use a soft plastic or nylon scouring pad if needed. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners, caustic acids, steel wool pads or metal utensils. Rinse thoroughly after cleaning. Wipe outside of Distiller with a soft cloth or sponge and mild soapy water. Condenser Fins Dirty condenser fins can cause poor cooling efficiency. If you notice steam coming from the filter spout or a decrease in the amount of distilled water, clean the condenser fins. • Remove three screws (located under gasket) from the cover (fig. F) and lift off louvered cover top (fig. G). • Clean accumulated dust/dirt from condenser fins with small brush or vacuum cleaner (fig. G). • Replace cover top and secure with the three screws. Collection/Storage Bottle See page 5 for cleaning instructions. 9 10 Carbon Filter Cup (figs. C & D) The filter cup should be replaced every 2 months or after 60-80 gallons of water processed (whichever comes first). Replace more often should the distilled water begin to have an unwanted taste or odor. Rinse and sterilize new filter cup per instructions on pages 5 and 6. Discard first gallon of distilled water as it may contain small, harmless carbon fines. Order replacement filters from the outlet where you purchased your distiller. TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS 1.
