Can I use AOX water with medication and supplements?

Yes, definitely! Unlike ionized alkaline water which might interfere with medication and supplements, AOX is 100% natural, therefore, it will not interfere with medication and supplements at all. Hence, AOX is widely used by medical professionals.

Does AOX need electricity to work?

Not at all. AOX natural filtration system does not require electricity to turn tap water into alkaline water rich in antioxidants. Electricity is only used for the chiller and boiler in the hot and cold range.

Does boiling AOX water cause it to lose its good properties?

AOX water has added natural minerals such as magnesium, calcium, potassium, sodium and silica, therefore, boiling AOX water does not cause it to lose its alkaline minerals. However, antioxidant properties would diminish with boiling as these antioxidant properties are unstable, which is a natural process.

How much AOX water should I drink?

The rule of the thumb is to drink about 8 glasses of 250ml of water daily. Drink AOX water before and after work-out to be hydrated and to regulate body temperature.

How should I store AOX Water for a long time?

AOX water contains lots of natural antioxidants which may be damaged by free radicals from the air. To get optimum benefit, drink it fresh from the dispenser. If you need to bring AOX Water out, it would be ideal to use an air-tight BPA-free water bottle and drink it within hours. Or when you want to chill it, store in air-tight BPA-free water bottle too and drink it within a week.

How do I know when to change the filters?

Our trained Technician will change filters and provide general cleaning on your dispenser at your premises too.

Instruction Manual for AOX-FCT360_1Instruction Manual for AOX-FCT360_2

How do I disable the alarm?

Press either the “DISPLAY” or “START/RESET” button. This will disable the alarm for 3 days. The alarm will sound again unless the time counter is reset. In the case of low battery, a replacement of the batteries will be required before alarm will stop.

Replacement of batteries

When the batteries are low in power, a short alarm will sound every 15 minutes. The empty battery symbol on the screen will blink until the batteries are replaced. To remove the batteries, slide off the cover case of the battery, pull out the battery housing unit and remove the 2 AA alkaline batteries. Please note that the timer will reset once the batteries are replaced. In order not to miss the filter change time, please note the remaining number of days and call our office at 6456 4321 when the time is up for filter change. Our office will provide a new set of batteries during filter change.

Why are there some traces of carbon particles in the water?

This occurrence is quite common with new filters. Nothing to worry about as carbon is safe for consumption as tested by independent lab. When this happens, flush away about 10 litres of water to clear the loose carbon particles. Repeat until the water is clear, if necessary.

Why are there some traces of white jelly particles in the water?

Unlike normal filtered water, AOX is rich in natural minerals. Over a period of time, the minerals may solidify as white jelly particles in the storage tank. You can contact our service department to do a complete flushing on the storage tank when it happens. They are tested by independent labs to be perfectly safe for consumption.

Why are there drops of water coming out from my TT tap even when I have already turn off the valve?

When the valve is turned off, water is shut off from the source. However, there will be residual water left in the tap which may sometimes flow out over time. The amount of water should be no more than several drops. Your TT tap is working normal and fine.

Why do I experience slow water flow?

Slow water flow could be due to low water pressure at your premises. It could also due to not-so-ideal water quality, causing the filters to be choked. When this happens, do give our friendly Customer Service a call to troubleshoot or to arrange a service call.  Following steps could be taken:

  1. If water pressure is low, we would recommend a booster pump.
  2. If the cause is choked filter, we would advise changing of the choked filter.
  3. If it is near the time to change filters, we would advise changing of full set of filters.

Why do I sometimes experience a sudden burst of water from the room temperature tap?

As there might be gases trapped inside the new filters, sudden burst might be experienced because of the purging of such gases. This is perfectly normal and safe.

What should I do when I go for holiday, offices closed for the weekend / public holiday?

You are advised to turn off the water inlet valve to the dispenser. For hot & cold range, drain off the water in the tank and turn off the power supply. This is to prevent leakage.
