INTRODUCTION
Dr. Marx, CSPSI

    Welcome to CS PRO. All of our UNI-PHASE Systems operate identically and produce equally high quality colloidal silver. Other than size and electrode configuration, the only differences are batch volume and time. Our unique design and innovative process produces the highest quality CS, while providing the most consistent results of any other CS production method available, as well as being the fastest, most reliable and easiest to use. Our customers, many of whom have tried most of the other "generators" on the market, rate our systems and technical support as the best they have ever encountered - anywhere. This same high level of quality and service is available to each and every one of our customers. We are here if you need us and look forward to serving you.

NOTES
Please take a few moments to thoroughly read these Operating Instructions before using your ''UNI-PHASE System''

WARNING!! THIS IS A VERY POWERFUL SYSTEM! FORGETTING TO "STOP" THE PROCESS CAN RESULT IN DAMAGING THE TANK AND ELECTRODES. ALLOWING THE ELECTRODES TO "TOUCH" WITH POWER APPLIED CAN DAMAGE THE ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS. 'CS PRO' ASSUMES NO LIABILITY FOR DAMAGES DUE TO NOT FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS OR FROM NEGLIGENT OPERATION!

TIPS ON USING THE 'TEST PROBE'

1. The Test Probe IS NOT WATERPROOF! Only the probe tip is designed to be immersed in liquid.
2. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CALIBRATE THE WATER TEST METER! The meter is pre calibrated.
2A. IGNORE the calibration instructions that came with the meter and LOSE THE SCREWDRIVER!!!!!
3. Remove the black plastic protective cover from the end of the probe.
4. Turn 'On' by sliding the switch firmly to the side until it 'clicks' into place. It will go to "000" reading (A 5 PPM reading will appear as "005").
5. When using the meter, 'plunge' the tip of the probe vigorously into the liquid, 1/2 - 1 inch, 2-4 times, and stir. The object is to ensure that the probe area is completely 'flushed' of any other liquid (previously tested) and only the liquid you are testing now is in the probe cavity.
6. Remember, NO TDS meter will test PPM silver! The readings you see are ONLY "conductivity", which you will be using in the calibration process. It has NOTHING to do with silver content! Over time the reading will actually drop considerably in the finished product. This is perfectly normal.
7. REMEMBER TO TURN THE METER "OFF" WHEN FINISHED TO AVOID DRAINING THE BATTERIES!
8. If you need to replace the batteries, GENTLY pry the top (black flange) up and slide the switch/battery assembly out of the blue body (do not pull on the connecting wires). You will see the batteries. Replace with #357, 1.5V batteries available everywhere (WalMart, K-Mart, Radio Shack, etc.). Be sure to check the polarity of the old batteries and install the new ones the same way as the old ones.
9. If you have problems with your TDS Meter, call HANNA Instruments Tech. Dept. at 800-426-6287 - X11 or X34 (warranty = 6 months), or Milwaukee Instruments at 252-443-3630 (warranty = 1 year), depending on which meter you have.

MAKING YOUR 'CALIBRATION SOLUTION'

1. Obtain a 'clean' container, with a wide mouth opening (could be a drinking glass) that will hold about 8 oz. for the UP-16 (or 16 oz. for the UP-48 and MAX 128).
2. Fill with 'steam distilled' water. Turn your test probe on, and test the water in the container.
3. Begin adding the 'Calibration Powder' (ordinary 'Baking Soda' - we provide a small amount with each system to get you started), a VERY SMALL 'pinch' at a time. Stir thoroughly and take another reading. The objective is to build the meter reading to 800-850 PPM.
NOTE: Add VERY SMALL AMOUNTS, IN SEVERAL STEPS, as about 1/32nd (or 1/16th) of a teaspoon is 'more' than enough. If you exceed the target PPM, pour a little out and add small amounts of distilled water to achieve your 'target' reading of 800-850 PPM. Keep in mind, the 'quantity' of solution is not important and the reading does not need to be 'exact' as you are simply making a concentrate.
4. Fill the dropper bottle with the solution and put the rest into the bottle labeled "Calibration Solution" (for continued refilling of the dropper bottle).
5. When finished making the calibration solution, rinse the probe area of the meter in "tap water". This will remove most of the concentrate before using the meter for the 'lower' readings (calibrating the batch).
NOTE: Baking soda is found in virtually every household, is used in baking numerous foods, consumed, used as an antacid, mouth freshener, toothpaste, and it is totally harmless. It (sodium-hydrogencarbonate, aka. sodium-bicarbonate, aka. baking soda) does not react or combine with the silver in any way, unlike salt, aka. sodium chloride - which 'could' combine to form 'silver chloride' (one of the salts of silver). As it turns out, baking soda is capable of adding a tremendous amount of PPM/TDS, using a virtually insignificant amount of the powder!
    Another very interesting side benefit of using 'baking soda' is that since distilled water will normally have a slightly acidic pH - generally 6.5 - 6.8 (7.0 is 'neutral'), any CS will remain slightly acidic if made without calibration, or using 'tap water' or 'salt' for the calibration. By using the baking soda method, the pH of a batch will be about 7.5-8.0 pH, well into the ideal 'alkaline area' which the human body prefers. In this case, the colloidal silver actually functions as a mild 'antacid'.
    We consider this to be a significant improvement in the production of CS.

'SETTING-UP' AND 'OPERATING' YOUR 'Uni-Phase' System

1. Take the ScotchBrite pad and (with a pair of scissors) cut it in half long ways, then across twice. This will give you 6 - 1"x1" pads, a perfect size for cleaning the electrodes.
2. Hold the "power head" over the sink with the electrodes angled downwards.  Wet one of the ScotchBrite squares and lightly 'swipe it down' the electrodes to remove discoloration. Check that they are reasonably straight, perpendicular, and parallel to each other. Wipe clean/dry with a paper towel.
3. Using a good quality 'Steam DISTILLED WATER' ("000" > "002" reading on the test probe), fill batch tank. For the 16 and 48 this level will be just above the 'shoulder' (NOT up into the vertical 'neck'). For the MAX, fill to the fill line on the attached label (some DW bottles contain more than 1 Gal) being careful NOT to overfill. Generally, a well known 'Brand Name' of distilled water will provide the most consistent quality, even though you will occasionally find fluctuations in quality within the same brand. We suggest you try a number of different brand names. Eventually you will find the one that most consistently provides the quality of water you need. It is impossible to lower the conductivity of 'not good enough' water to an acceptable level. However, distilled water that is 'better' than necessary can always be adjusted 'up' during the calibration process! If the distilled water is not good enough to use in the process, keep for 'drinking', and try another bottle.
NOTE: The reason we want the initial reading of the water to be slightly lower than the final 'calibrated' reading is so that we can add at least a small amount of the calibration solution and slightly increase the pH.
NOTE: Temperature of the water will effect the operation of the system and the ultimate PPM/Ag. For best results, temperature should be between 75 to 80 degrees F.
4. Use the dropper to add the calibration solution to the batch water. For the MAX, you can add 10cc (using the dosage cup provided) of calibration solution and finish the calibration with the dropper. As you continue to 'add' calibration solution, 'stir' the batch water with the tip of the 'Test Probe' (use a spoon for the MAX), monitoring the reading. The final CALIBRATED READING should be 4-5 PPM.
NOTE: If you slightly "over calibrate" simply pour out about 1/3 of the water in the tank, refill with "new" water, and recheck the reading. If now slightly "under calibrated", re-add a small amount of calibration solution (a drop at a time) until it is correct. You may not need to do anything, depending on how far you went "over" on the first try. After you have gone through the calibration process a few times, you will get a "feel" for about how much of the calibration solution to add for achieving a given reading.
5. When 'calibration' is complete, install the 'power head' on the tank and place the system near the receptacle.
NOTE: These are the most versatile colloidal silver systems available You can plug the 'UNI-PHASE' systems (or the timer if you ordered the "Auto Version") into any standard 115VAC/60Hz. household receptacle, OR they can be used anywhere in the world (240, 230, 115VAC - 50/60Hz.) by simply adapting the system (or timer) plug to fit your receptacle. You can also operate the UP-16 and 48 on 12VDC with an appropriate 'inverter'. This will permit using the system in a vehicle, or from any 12VDC source. You can also operate using the inverter with any 'solar panel' capable of putting out 20 Watts @ 15VDC. Because of the higher power requirement of the MAX, we do not recommend using it with an inverter without calling CS PRO first to determine the proper inverter capacity.
6. MANUAL OPERATION (see "Automatic" below) - You can use anything you wish to time the batch. The time does not have to be 'exact', but you should be as close as possible, give or take a few seconds (see "Time Table" below). Generally, running the system at 220/230 Volts will take approximately '2/3' the time required at 115 Volts. The "TABLE" (below) will give a 'General' guideline. As you become familiar with the operation, you will soon be able to 'visually' determine your selected batch 'stopping point'. If 'manually' operated, you MUST remember to physically unplug the system at the end of the appropriate running time.
7. If you have done everything correctly to this point, within the first fifteen seconds, you will notice the 'red' electrode(s) begin to 'darken, and some very small bubbles forming on the 'green' electrode(s). Shortly, you will begin to see bubbles streaming up the green electrode(s). Within another few minutes you will see very fine 'swirls' of particles beginning to form near the surface of the water and around the 'red' electrode(s). As the process continues, (depending on the concentration you are running), you will see the clouds of particles increase. They will be slowly 'swirling' from one electrode to another, back and forth (see photo - appearance at approximately 15 PPM). This is the 'Pulse-Phasic' Process working. As the particles move from the 'phase field' of one electrode, and into the 'phase field' of another, they are being continuously reduced in size. SEE "OPERATING TIPS' - below.
8. When the Process has run the desired time, 'UNPLUG the UNI-PHASE System from the power source and bottle or store the CS you have just made. The shelf life should be 1-2 years! Clean the electrodes, wipe the tank dry with a soft paper towel, and you are finished.

6A. AUTOMATIC OPERATION - (recommended)
All automatic systems now come with the 'Intermatic' Digital Programable Start/Stop Tabletop Timer. Read and follow the manufacturers instructions. The EURO Rotary timer is self explanatory..
a. When the batch is calibrated and set up, simply plug the system into the back of the wall plug (Digital) or receptacle (on the back) of the Rotary timer.
b. PERFORM A FINAL VISUAL CHECK TO ENSURE THE ELECTRODES ARE STRAIGHT AND NOT TOUCHING!
c. When the cycle is complete the timer will turn off the power and your batch is done.
Always unplug the system from the timer before removing the powerhead from the tank.

MISCELLANEOUS OPERATING TIPS!

END OF BATCH READING: Although this reading has nothing to do with the Ag content of the batch, if you stir and test immediately after finishing a 10-11 PPM/Ag batch, you should get a PPM/TDS reading of about 15-18. This is NOT PPM/Ag and this is ONLY a point of reference, enabling you to compare the end result of this batch to the last, the next, and so on. This reading is ONLY good at this point in time. Over time, the TDS reading on the stored product will gradually decrease. This has NOTHING to do with the actual silver content of your product! Once silver is added to the water, it remains the same, irregardless of the TDS reading, which WILL diminish. This is due to the molecular restabilization of the water which was disrupted during the process!
PPM RECOMMENDATION: You can run the UNI-PHASE Systems for longer periods, and create higher PPM's, but we do not recommend ever going over 18 PPM. As you exceed 20 PPM, the size of the particles gradually increases, the 'bio-availability' goes down, a slight settling may begin, and shelf life is reduced. At this point, all you are doing is reducing the quality and effectiveness of your CS, and using excessive amounts of silver from the electrodes, drastically shortening their life. At the 99+% 'bio-availability' level of the CS produced by the 'Pulse-Phasic' Process, 10-12 PPM is more than enough to get the job done! In 15 years of experience and clinical application we have found no benefit to using concentrations over 10 PPM.
ELECTRODE CONDITIONING: The first batch you produce will be quite a bit stronger than normal (18-20 PPM) and darker, the second batch will be intermediate (13-15 PPM) and slightly darker than normal. By the third batch the electrodes will be conditioned and subsequent batches will be consistent. Do not discard the first and second batches. They are perfectly good to use. You cannot make a 'bad' batch of colloidal silver with these systems when following the operating instructions.
TEMPERATURE: Temperature is an important parameter in operating your system and you should always try to use water in the 75-80 deg. F range. This is often overlooked, particularly in the cooler months. Below 75F, performance will drop rapidly. Exceeding 80F slightly is OK as warmer has less effect than colder. Find a warm place in the house and allow the water time to equalize to this temperature. Stores are generally kept at 68F so the water will be quite cool. Allowing it to set in the warm area overnight will improve your results.
COLOR: PulsePhasic colloidal silver exhibits some unique characteristics. Up to 8-9 PPM, it will generally remain colorless. At and above 10 PPM it may turn to very light yellow, while displaying a very light, almost indiscernible Tyndall (visible beam of a penlight shined through the liquid). Above 12 PPM, the yellow color may intensify. This is difficult to immediately ascertain since most all batches will finish colorless and the color will develop over time. Generally, the higher the PPM/Ag the more intense the yellow color becomes. Tyndall will also increase accordingly. The extreme "fineness" of the Tyndal indicates exceptionally small particles. Although batches may appear colorless at completion, the color may materialize slowly over a few hours. Color will only increase to a specific intensity and stop. This has no meaning or effect upon the quality or efficacy of the PulsePhasic CS.
ELECTRODE CARE: The electrodes should be gently "swiped" after each use. There will be slight discoloration on the green and black electrodes, and a blackening of the red electrode, all easily removable, especially while wet. Do not scrub any harder than necessary to remove the discoloration. Excessive scrubbing only shortens the life of the electrodes. After every third or fourth batch, "remove" the electrodes for cleaning by pulling straight out of the sockets. DO NOT TWIST! To reinstall, push firmly into socket until they stop (about 1/4"). When removing used electrodes, make note of which 'end' came out of the socket and be sure the same end is always reinserted. Do not flip electrodes "end for end", since as they wear and become thinner, they will no longer fit the socket. Whenever removing electrodes, to equalize the wear, reinstall them in different locations than removed from. The electrode in the red socket wears the fastest. Make sure the electrodes are "straight" parallel and equidistant. This is particularly important with the longer electrodes of the UP-48 and MAX. Maintaining the correct distance between electrodes is important  to the quality of the product. NEVER ALLOW ELECTRODES TO TOUCH TOGETHER WHILE POWER IS APPLIED!
SYSTEM CARE: All UniPhase systems require only minimal care. Aside from the electrodes, all that is needed to maintain the tank and powerhead are wiping with a paper towel before putting away. If necessary, the tank can be washed with a mild dish soap. Be sure to rinse thoroughly to avoid any soap residue. The powerhead may be periodically wiped clean with a damp cloth. NEVER IMMERSE THE POWERHEAD IN WATER! NEVER ALLOW WATER TO ENTER THE POWERHEAD THROUGH THE ELECTRODE SOCKETS!

!! - PRECAUTIONS - !!

THIS SYSTEM OPERATES AT POWER LEVELS WHICH ARE CAPABLE OF INFLICTING SERIOUS SHOCK, BURNS, FATAL INJURIES, ELECTROCUTION, AND POSSIBLE DEATH!

NEVER ATTEMPT TO REMOVE THE LID FROM THE TANK, OR TOUCH THE ELECTRODES, WHILE THE 'UNI-PHASE SYSTEM' IS PLUGGED IN! ALSO, NEVER PLUG-IN THE 'UNI-PHASE SYSTEM' UNTIL THE TANK IS PROPERLY SET-UP AND ADJUSTED, THE POWERHEAD IS IN PLACE AND YOU HAVE VISUALLY VERIFIED THAT NO ELECTRODES ARE TOUCHING EACH OTHER!

? - CHILDREN - ?

It is advised, that if you have small 'curious' children in the household, you should always remove the electrodes from the UNI-PHASE System before putting it away (preferably somewhere that they will not be able to find, or reach it), and keep the electrodes in a separate location.

NOTES!

The Colloidal Silver produced with the 'PULSE-PHASIC' Process, and the UNI-PHASE Systems, is many times better, more 'bio-available' at 10-15 PPM (100% vs. 10-20% for LVDC), and has a much longer (unstabilized) 'shelf life' than CS produced using the 'Low Voltage DC Process'. We are finding that this colloidal silver is equal in quality and efficacy to the '100% bio-availability' and 'indefinite shelf life' of the CS PRO HVAC Process / Product.

STORAGE

Unlike LVDC CS, The 'Hybrid' CS produced by the 'Pulse-Phasic' Process can be stored in plastic bottles! There are bottles included in the UP-16 and 48 Packages for storage of your batch. It can also be kept for extended periods in the same 1 Gal. HDPE plastic bottles your DW comes in. For the MAX, since it makes a full gallon at a time, simply use the 1 gallon jug your DW came in. We have sample bottles which have been setting for over 2 years and are still in excellent (fresh) condition with no settling.

OBTAINING BOTTLES

We recommend: "E. D. Luce Pharmaceutical Packaging", <www.essentialsupplies.com> for bottles and caps of all kinds, plastic or glass. Their prices are very affordable, they have a reasonable 'minimum order', and reports are that they are very good to do business with.
