This guide explains the basic installation of a counter top water ionizer using the standard “faucet adapter-to-water ionizer” connection method.  This standard water ionizer installation method  will be the same for almost all counter top water ionizers but the parts may vary somewhat from company to company.

Installing a counter-top water ionizer should only take a few minutes once you’ve identified all of the parts.  The process is relatively simple and the majority of water ionizer customers never feel the need to call a plumber or “handyman” to complete the installation.

This guide illustrates Water Ionizer Authority’s recommended installation method for counter top water ionizers.  This installation method will make your counter top water ionizer easier to use, frees your faucet from adapters & hoses,  and protect it from damage that can be caused by accidentally running hot water through the unit.

Your water ionizer will still sit on the counter top near the sink, offering full access to the control panel.  The difference with this installation is how water is supplied to the unit.  Instead of adding an adapter to your faucet with the hose running from the faucet to your water ionizer, an adapter is placed directly in the cold water line below the sink.  This provides a constant supply of water to your ionizer which means no more turning the faucet on and diverting water to the ionizer.  The water supply has already been diverted below the sink using a dedicated water supply line for your counter top water ionizer.

G2 Faucet Installation GuideThis guide illustrates installation of your counter top water ionizer using Chanson’s G2 Faucet.  The G2 Faucet eliminates the need for a faucet adapter and a waste water hose draining into your sink.

The G2 Faucet can be used with any counter top water ionizer and is ideal for those who with more modern kitchen faucets or faucets that have a pull-out sprayer rather than a standard tap.  No faucet adapter means no hose running from your faucet, across the back of your sink and to your water ionizer.  Your water ionizer will be protected against anyone accidentally running hot water through your ionizer.

Your water ionizer will still sit on the counter but water is supplied to the unit through connection to the G2 Faucet instead of the traditional faucet adapter.  The drain hose is replaced by the spout on the G2 Faucet – your drain hose now connects to the G2 Faucet and waste water is eliminated through the spout.

Installing an under-counter or “faucet style” water ionizer is just as easy as the above the counter installation when connecting directly to the cold water line below the sink.  No need to call a plumber – most people can do this themselves in 30 minutes or less.

Instead of installing a faucet diverter, you’re installing a t-adapter into the cold water line – the hardest part of the installation is dealing with the drips while putting the T-adapter in place.
