Congratulations on an inspired purchase. You have acquired the bestvalue on an essential facet of your personal care; the water you drink.Your Gio-Bella water alkalizer represents the very latest that HighTech Holdings has to offer. Remember, High Tech Holdings is anISO9001/9002 company, which means they have achievedexemplary quality control methods in the design and execution of theGio-Bella. What else does High Tech Holdings manufacturer besideswater alkalizers? The answer is control circuitry for powergeneration plants, where quality is a must. This quality is readilyapparent in fit and finish, and in the electrical components protectedin plastic blocks, the stainless steel fasteners that are usedthroughout and in the local support that you will receive right herewhen you need it.This manual will show you how to install, operate, and maintain yournew Gio-Bella to help insure that you will get many years of usefulbenefit from it.WARNINGS Read manual prior to installation and operation. Verify with your health practitioner that prescribed medicationsor existing conditions will not be affected by alkalinity. Your new Gio-Bella is intended as a point-of-use applianceonly. Serious damage may result from misuse of your GioBella. Never attach any plumbing or tubing to the flexibledispensing hose. Your Gio-Bella will only operate on 110-120 VAC. Severedamage will occur if used on incorrect line voltage. Never drink the acidic water by-product from your Gio-Bella The Gio-Bella is NOT intended for use on microbiologicallyunsafe water.2

Follow manufacturer’s suggested uses for pH levels. Theconsumption of water that is too alkaline may cause diarrhea orother symptoms. No medical claims have been made nor implied by themanufacturer. Always see your physician at the first sign ofillness. Manufacturer is not responsible for adverse effects thatmay result the use, or misuse of ionized water. Never operate the Gio-Bella with hot water. Serious filter andwater cell damage will result. Never open the case of your Gio-Bella. There are no userserviceable components, aside from the filter and calciumcartridges, which are accessed by removable covers. Maintain a clean and dry area around your Gio-Bella. Neverallow unit to sit in standing water. Notify your Gio-Bella dealer at the first sign of malfunction anddiscontinue use immediately.3

INSTALLATION, OPERATION, AND MAINTENANCE1. Unpacking – Remove all contents from shipping box. Saveshipping box and packing materials in the event your Gio-Bellawould ever need reshipped. You should have the followingitems included with your Gio-Bella: Hose kit with clamps Gio-Bella base unit Metal flex hose Diverter valve with extra adapters.Appearance may vary with market. Hole template for wall mounting pH test kit2. Installation – Our objective here is simply to attach the GioBella to a water source. This is easily done with the divertervalve that is included. Once attached to a faucet, the diverterliterally redirects the water from the faucet to the hose that isattached to the Gio-Bella. When not using the Gio-Bella, thefaucet may be used without any inconvenience whatsoever.Just follow these simple steps: Decide on an installation location. For most this will benext to the kitchen sink. The ultimate location should be4

determined by convenience and easy access to both anelectrical outlet and water. Remove original faucet aerator. This is usually donewithout tools by rotating counter-clockwise. Put the original aerator in a safe place andinstall the diverter valve assembly in its place.Note that if your faucet has threads on theinside, there are 2 adapters included that canbe used. Position the diverter valve with thebarbed fitting pointing towards the Gio-Bella Next, take the hose kit and roughly gaugediverter tofaucetsufficient length from the Gio-Bella waterINPUT, to the barbed fitting on the diverter valve. Pleaseallow for the lateral swing of the faucet. You should alsocompensate for any extra if you will be adding aBluestone Group pre-filter. Once a sufficient length is determined, use a sharp pair ofscissors and cut the hose straight across in a single cut. Using a dab of Vaseline, or soap, lubricate the end of thediverter valve barbed fitting. Select aclamp from the hose kit and place overthe hose end. Next, firmly press the hoseonto the barbed fitting until the entirefitting length is inside the hose.Attaching hose toAttachingdiverter Slide the screw clamp onto the end of thehose to the point where it is midway over where thebarbed fitting has penetrated. Tighten the screw clampfirmly with a Phillips screwdriver. (Note, in some marketsspring clamps may be supplied instead.) If installing any of Bluestone Group’s prefilters:o Sediment5

o Carbon Blocko Combo carbon and scale inhibitero Fluoride/arseniccut the hose at the location where the filteris to be placed and fasten hose fromdiverter onto to the filter end marked “in”, or“input from faucet.” Once again, securehose with a clamp. With sharp scissors, cuta 2nd piece of hose sufficient in length toreach from the “output” side of the prefilter,to the “water input” port under the GioBella. Secure each of these connectionswith clamps. If not installing a BluestoneGroup prefilter, hose lengthshould reach from the divertervalve fitting to the input fittinglocated under the Gio-Bella.Secure this connection with a clamp. The last connection will be from the“ACID OUTPUT” port under the Gio-Bella.Simply cut a sufficient length of hose toreach from the Gio-Bella, back to the sinkdrain. Allow some extra length in theevent acid water is to be collected forexternal or plant use. There is no need fora clamp at this location since it will not bepressurized.

Rotate threaded end clockwise,until finger-tight.Installing Gio-Bellaflexhose6

3. Before First Usage – There are a number of items to checkprior to turning on the water: Plug power cord into a 3-pronged 110 VAC outlet. Therewill be a momentary illumination of all theuser panel LED’s. Open the filter door and verify that the filterhas not been dislodged from its mountingpoint. A loose filter WILL leak. Rotate filterwith your thumb. It should revolve evenlybetween its upper and lower connections.4. First Usage - Here we will verify operation of theGio-Bella.Verify that filter issecure Locate rear panel rocker-switch for mainpower and press to the “ON” position. Turn on COLD water. (Do not turn onhot water since warm or hot water willdamage the built in filter.) Pull out on the diverter valve button. Thiswill divert the water from the faucet,through the hose that’s attached to the GioBella. As soon as the Gio-Bella’s water pressurePull diverterdetector senses flow, the ionizationbutton to startGio-Bellachamber will turn on automatically. Theuser panel lights will illuminate, and the lastselected alkalinity level LED will glow. Within severalseconds, water will begin coming out of the metaldispensing (flex) hose on top of the Gio-Bella. Note thatthis dispensing hose may be swiveled nearly 360degrees, and that it can also be bent to accommodate justabout any container.7Rear panelpower switch"ON"

Allow water to run for several minutes. You may noticethat the water has a black tint, which is nothing more thancarbon particles washing out of the filter. This willdisappear after several seconds. After this initial systemflush, the Gio-Bella will be able to produce drinking waterinstantly. Push in diverter button so that water, once again, exitsfrom the faucet, instead of the Gio-Bella. With the waterflow stopped, the Gio-Bella will automatically turn off.5. pH Level Selection – Included with your Gio-Bella is a liquid testkit for measuring pH. The importance of measuring the pH is sothat you know which of the 4 pH selections is the best one foryou and your family. Not every water source is going to yieldthe same pH for each setting. The reason for this is that themineral content will vary from region to region, or even fromone town to the next. This is why pH measurement is soimportant. You certainly would not want to consume water witha pH that was either too alkaline, or acidic. Ideally, you shoulduse the selection that will give you between an 8 and 9 pH fordrinking water. To measure the pH, obtain a clear test tube orjuice glass and perform the following: With water running through the GioBella, experiment with the “Alkaline”button. Note that each time it isdepressed, the next higher alkalinelevel is reached, until the level #4,after which, the lowest, or weakestalkaline level is activated. Select thelowest pH setting. Wait a coupleseconds, and then get a very smallsample (1-2 ounces) in the test tubeor glass. Unscrew cap from small dropper bottleof test solution and carefully add just 28User Panel

drops to sample. CAUTION – pH TEST SOLUTION ISTOXIC, DO NOT DRINK. KEEP TEST SOLUTIONOUT OF CHILDRENS REACH Gently mix sample until water turns a consistent colorand compare resultant hue to the reference color chart.This should help you determine the pH closely enoughto determine the best setting to use. Repeat on thehigher settings to determine a pH value for each. Youmay also wish to test the acid discharge pH. Followthe advise of your medical professional regardingthe optimum pH to use. Refer to chart below fortypical pH usage:PH VALUEUSAGE7.0 – 8.0 AlkalineDrinking water for new user and pets8.0 – 9.0 AlkalineDrinking water for acclimated user9.1 – 9.5 AlkalineOccasional drinking water for acclimated user after exertion9.0 – 10.0 AlkalineCooking – boiling vegetables, rice, pasta, use in dough forbread and piecrusts. Great for coffee, tea, and reconstitutingfruit juices3.0 – 4.0 AcidExternal use as antiseptic or for washing fresh produce.4.0 – 7.0 AcidVarious uses, including plant fertilizer or for cut flowerarrangements6. Neutral Setting – This setting is to be usedwhen no ionization is desired. The resultingdispensed water will be filtered, but not ionized.The pH will be about the same as tap water.There are not many situations when the “NeutralSetting” will be used, except for those thatrequire a pH unchanged from tapwater, asmight be required with certain medications.7. Acid Setting – The acid setting allows the userto obtain acidic water from the dispensing flexhose. While in the “acid-mode” the polarity ofthe Gio-Bella ionization chamber is reversed,resulting in the reversal of pH from alkaline to acid. This is thesame thing that happens during the automatic cleaning cycle.9

Acid water may also be obtained from the acid discharge hosewhile the Gio-Bella is producing alkaline water from thedispensing hose. The acidity of the discharge water will bedetermined by the alkaline setting in use.8. Cleaning Cycle – The Gio-Bella has an automatic cleaningcycle. During a clean cycle, the polarity is reversed in theionization chamber so that any minerals that are sticking to theelectrodes are “repelled away” instead of being “attracted to”the electrode surfaces. The reason this is important is so thatthere is no mineral build-up to eventually clog the ionizationchamber. Your Gio-Bella will clean automatically for 45seconds, every 100 counts of the filter life indicator. For anaverage family of 4, this amounts to once every 1.5 days. Neverattempt to defeat the clean cycle. As explained above, thewater exiting the dispensing hose during the clean cycle will beacidic and should NOT be consumed. A tune will play duringthe clean cycle and the “power” and “acid” LED’s will flash.After 45 seconds, the Gio-Bella will resume normal operation.9. Filter Life Indication – Your Gio-Bella has a filter life indicatorthat counts backwards from “9999” to “0000.” Once “0000” isreached, the “Replace-Filter” LED will light. The filter life meteris simply an approximate indication of when to replace the filtercartridge. Actual lifespan will vary depending on the watersupply, and whether there are any prefilters in use. Should younotice an “off-taste” or a reduction in flow, you may need a newfilter sooner that what is indicated. By the same token, if youhave a prefilter and notice no flow reduction or “off-taste,” yourfilter may last well beyond the filter-change reminders.10.Filter Replacement Procedure – As with all HTH wateralkalizers, the Gio-Bella filter is extremely easy to replace. Justfollow these steps: Turn off water at faucet.Open filter access door located on the left side, facingthe back of the machine. Press in on the thumb detent,swing door open, and remove.10

Placing two fingers at the top of filter cartridge, pressdown until the filter top clears the nylon top fitting. Pull filter back and lift out of filter compartment. Note that there is a removable filter basethat will be reused with the new filter.Gently remove this from the old filtercartridge and set aside. Discard old filter. Unwrap new filter cartridge and locatefilter base. Place a small film of Vaseline (optional to preserve orings) on the filter base o-rings and gently press on-tofilter bottom. Place filter/base assembly, base-first into filtercompartment. The filter base o-ring should fit into thespring loaded pedestal receptacle. Press down on the filter cartridgewhile guiding the filter top so that itclears filter compartment opening. Push filter back far enough to allowtop-nylon fitting to seat into filter tophole.Retain filter baseInsert new filterbase first Verify that new filter is fully seated by rotatinghorizontally ¼ turn. Rotation should be centeredwithout any wobble. Turn water on and with filter door still removed, verifythat there are no leaks. With water running, press andHOLD filter-life indicator reset button, until indicatorresets to “9999.”11

Replace filter door. Reorder new filter cartridge so thatyou will have it when you need it.11.Calcium Additive – Your Gio-Bella hasa small percolator basket to which a slowdissolving calcium compound can be added.After tap water runs through the filter, it flowsthrough this percolator basket, picking upsmall amounts of calcium in doing so. ThisAccessing calciumcalcium will then be ionized and dispensedbasketas a readily absorbable form of calcium insolution with the ionized water. Each “charge” of calcium willlast about 6 months. Additional calcium may be purchased fromyour Gio-Bella dealer. The use of this supplemental calcium isoptional and should not be used in place of any prescribedcalcium supplements. Check with your health care provider formore information. CAUTION – DO NOT PUT ANY OTHERCOMPOUNDS OR MATERIALS IN THE CALCIUM BASKET.SERIOUS ILLNESS AND/OR DAMAGE TO THE GIO-BELLAMAY OCCUR. ONLY USE THE CALCIUM COMPOUNDSUPPLIED BY YOUR GIO-BELLA DEALER.12.Special Gio-Bella Functions – Your Gio-Bella has somespecial functions that most users will not need to worry aboutand that are accessed while the water is turned off. Theseinvolve: Filter-life time adjustment – enables user to speed upor slow down the filter life indicator. In areas of highsedimentation, the user may want to speed-up theindicator; or if a prefilter is used, the user may want toslow down the filter life indicator. Gio-Bellas built forthe North American market are already set for themaximum filter life selection. Acidic Button preset – enables user to determinestrength of acid water coming from the dispensinghose when the “acid” button is pressed.12

Alkaline level #1 to #4 presets – enables user tochange the pH value for each of the 4 alkaline settingsby adjusting the power on the desired level.To access these special functions, use the ic Acidic Access Special Programming to display current value and enter new value Alkaline Enter new value Index UP to desired value Index DOWN to desired valuea) Filter life indicator adjustment:i.
