Short answer; to act as a ‘current’ (amperage) path.
Water is dielectric, which is a scientific way to say “does not conduct electricity”. 
Yet for electrolysis (the scientific way to say “split water into hydrogen and oxygen using electricity”) to ‘work’, the electricity must get from one electrode to the other.
So to conduct electricity the water MUST have an ‘impurity’ in it. The electricity then travels through the water using the impurity.
Ideally the impurity should be a catalyst (catalysts assist the reaction WITHOUT getting consumed in the process).
George Wiseman tested thousands of potential catalyst solutions to find the most practical (low cost, readily available, least caustic while highly efficient, clean, long lasting, etc.)
Mr. Wiseman discovered a lean (not very caustic) solution of lye to be the most practical balance of all factors.
Note: The lye is a catalyst and is supposed to STAY IN THE MACHINE, not come out with the pure HydrOxy gas.
The HydrOxy gas does contain a bit of water moisture that can hold a tiny amount of lye, which gets scrubbed (removed) in the Humidifier, so the HydrOxy that is produced is PURE and SAFE.

Do Not put anything into the AquaCure except pure lye (NaOH) and PURE water.
Some people suggest using catalysts like:1. KOH (EXTREMELY CAUSTIC) which the AquaCure components are not designed to handle and causes chemical burns.2. Sodium Bicarbonate (baking soda), which makes huge sludge and poison gas (carbon monoxide) 3. Sodium Chloride (tables salt) makes green gunk and poisonous gas (chlorine).4. Etc. The point being that Mr. Wiseman did decades of research, manufactured thousands of machines and has them in use worldwide, so he KNOWS what is practical and SAFE.

George Wiseman chooses to run a really lean mixture for a practical lye mixture that makes gas safely and efficiently.
We want the MINIMUM amount of lye, just enough to do the job efficiently, because too much lye will cause crystallization, which can plug up internal orifices and potentially cause foaming, etc.

The AquaCure model AC50 is designed to allow people to optimize gas production for various uses. 

We do not want customers to inhale ‘full volume’ of 100%, thinking more is better, and severely injure (or kill) themselves if the gas explodes in their lungs. 

For therapeutic use, more is NOT better. Once the blood is saturated with hydrogen you breathe out as much as you breathe in AND TOO MUCH hydrogen in the intake breath makes a potentially EXPLOSIVE mixture.

Any air mixture that contains more than 4% hydrogen is potentially EXPLOSIVE. 4% concentration is PLENTY to breathe (to saturate the blood). Most of the scientific studies use 2% hydrogen (all studies have had positive results).

For health application, an adult male shouldn’t get more than about 18 Liters per hour (lph) to keep the hydrogen content under the 4% limit. So anything over 18 lph is dangerous for inhalation and not needed for therapeutic use.

For therapeutic use, forget ‘vigourous’ gas production and think ‘enough’ gas production.

If the AquaCure is producing up to 18 lph, it’s FULLY operational for therapeutic use.

All that said, we DO also promote the AquaCure as a ‘machine that can do everything’ so you may want to do things like:

  1. Fuel a microtorch
  2. More quickly infuse HydrOxy into water
  3. Infuse HydrOxy into larger volumes of water
  4. Make New Water
  5. Use HydrOxy for carbon-fuel combustion enhancement

Caveat 1:
George Wiseman uses a lean electrolyte mixture (80 grams in the AquaCure) for several reasons:

  1. It’s only as caustic as strong soap. Not enough to cause chemical burns (though you still want to keep it out of mucus membranes and wash it off until the slippery feeling is gone). So a lean mixture is safer.
  2. This lean mixture helps keep the gas production of the AquaCure down into the safe range for a breathing gas.
  3. A lean mixture is much less likely to foam (make soap bubbles) so there is less ‘carry-over’ of lye into the Humidifier.  Again, safer.

Caveat 2:

We do not recommend (and seriously caution against) increasing gas production to 100% for inhalation.

ALL other applications can have the AquaCure set at 100% duty cycle.

George Wiseman ONLY uses the nasal cannula (masks are MUCH more prone to explosions), grounds himself (and the machine) so that there is no ‘static voltage’ potential difference and have it set up in a static free environment.

Don’t think an explosion ‘can’t happen to you’ or get complacent. It CAN happen and HAS happened several times to people using hydrogen for health. NO ONE has been hurt (yet) because they have followed the protocols.

Two stories:

A man was using BG to treat the arthritis in his hand, so he had his hand bagged (so it was a high hydrogen concentration (BG is 66% hydrogen)) and his dog needed to go outside. He took the tube out of the bag, but left the bag on his hand and shuffled across the carpet to the door and as he reached out to the doorknob, a spark jumped (to the OUTSIDE) of the bag and the potential difference of voltage (from the inside to the outside of the bag) ignited the BG and the bag went BANG.

He was not hurt, because it’s like a balloon popping, just startled.  So was the dog, who pooped on the floor…

The second story is about a man who was breathing the BG and his amorous wife was rubbing his thigh. She is prone to building up static electricity and happened to touch the humidifier lid. Again, the spark OUTSIDE the plastic ignited the BG inside and blew the lid off the Humidifier. The man got a slight bruise from flying plastic but otherwise, no damage.
They bought a new Humidifier and are still using the AquaCure…

Caveat 3:

But this brings up another point… GLASS! MANY people ask if they can use glass (and/or are doing it without asking). GLASS is DANGEROUS because a BG explosion will shatter glass and glass shards flying are MUCH MORE DANGEROUS than plastic.

We use ‘food grade’ plastics so please do not be concerned with VOCs or other poisons. And if you MUST use glass, then do NOT use the AquaCure.

We purchase our lye in bulk with special order at a local hardware store. Lye used to be available in most grocery stores and hardware stores but police campaigning has mostly removed it from those sources.

Lye (aka NaOH, sodium hydroxide and caustic soda) can be purchased online in quantity and cheaper than we sell it. Just order 99% pure lye.

This also applies to citric acid, although it can usually be purchased in a local whole food store bulk section (it’s used for canning fruit). We add citric acid to the mixture in the same ratio as the lye.

For Australian users we found the correct Lye which has no impurities added for cleaning drains and that is “Glitz” Caustic Soda and is readily available at “Bunnings ” Warehouse.

The lye is a catalyst, so it is not ‘consumed’ and in theory the initial charge would last a lifetime. However, in practice a tiny amount is lost out with the gas over time (that’s why we have the Humidifier, to trap the lye).
Lye can also be lost when people pour out some of the solution or if you have a foaming issue or if you have a malfunctioning duckbill valve. The easiest way to determine when you need to add another ounce of lye is when you notice the gas production has dropped (and there is no gas leak or hose blockage).

Also known as Sodium Hydroxide, NaOH and caustic soda. This is an inorganic chemical at minimum 99% pure. It is a white solid, highly caustic metallic base and alkali salt. Sodium hydroxide is soluble in water, ethanol and methanol.

This alkali is deliquescent and readily absorbs moisture and carbon dioxide in air.

Lye is used in many industries, like candle making and making Bio-Diesel.
In Soap Making: Lye is mixed with water to create a lye solution. The lye solution, when then mixed with fats and oils, will cause a chemical reaction called saponification (fancy for soap). The result of saponification is beautiful handmade soap. This is how soap has been made for thousands of years and you can still buy it in specialty shops and farmer’s markets.
In Cleaning: Industrial, or technical, grade lye is often used as a cleaner and is the active ingredient in common household drain cleaners and oven cleaners.
In Food Prep: Food uses of sodium hydroxide include washing or chemical peeling of fruits and vegetables, chocolate and cocoa processing, caramel coloring production, poultry scalding, soft drink processing, and thickening ice cream. Olives are often soaked in sodium hydroxide for softening; Pretzels and German lye rolls are glazed with a sodium hydroxide solution before baking to make them crisp.
The point is that most households already use lye directly or indirectly without even knowing it.

George Wiseman says: “Spectro-analysis shows that HydrOxy contains monatomic hydrogen and oxygen but it’s only about 3% of the total volume.

Scientific evidence also shows that HydrOxy contains a significant volume of Electrically Expanded Water (ExW).  
ExW is a negatively charged (electron rich) plasma form of water.  
Depending on the quality of the HydrOxy gas, ExW can be up to 30% of the total volume.

ExW is still water (hasn’t split into hydrogen and oxygen) but it’s water that’s soaked up electricity and become a gaseous form of water that is NOT water vapor or steam.  If cooled, it does not condense.

Plasma is the fourth state of matter (solid, liquid, gas, plasma) and is defined as an ‘ionized gas’ (has extra electrons).  

ExW is water (H2O) in a gaseous form that has excess energy (in the form of bio-available electrons).  It’s a plasma at room temperature so it’s a ‘cold’ plasma.
ExW is NOT water vapor or steam.  It does not condense if cooled.  It only ‘condenses’ back into liquid water if it loses it’s electrons.

ExW forms in the middle of the liquid, between the electrodes and if you insert a ‘membrane’ to separate the gases (like traditional electrolyzers do) then the ExW forming ‘effect’ (water absorbing electrons) doesn’t happen.

So the only way I know to have and take advantage of the ExW, is to make and keep all the gasses together…

We can confirm the existence of and measure the volume of ExW in Brown’s Gas by drying the gas (to remove water moisture) and use mass spectrometry to see that a gaseous form of water (that is not water vapor or steam) is still there (it will not condense if cooled).

That’s the most direct way to confirm the existence of the ExW.

ExW is what makes Brown’s Gas (aka HHO, HydrOxy, etc.) more effective for health application than using straight molecular hydrogen (H2).  
Because the body (and particularly bodies that are ill) NEEDS the energy (electrons) that the ExW provides.  

Bodies that are ill usually have compromised energy generation systems and their energy reserves have been depleted.  Adding energy INDEPENDENTLY of those systems allows the body to heal and re-start it’s own energy generation systems.

It’s good to give the body the food (hydrogen) it needs to heal, but also helps greatly if you give the body the ENERGY it needs to use the ‘food’  to heal.

It’s like any construction site.  You can bring the concrete and lumber, but without electricity and fuel no machines can operate.  The ExW provides the fuel the body needs to heal quicker.

Bodies that are ill usually have compromised energy generation systems and have used up their energy reserves.  So the ExW is needed for best results.

Of course the Hydrogen Technology people do not know about ExW, most don’t :))

This is another indication that they are copycats rather than original innovators.  They make a really nice looking machine, but it’s cobbled together from various sources (I can see several places in their machine).  It is well built and well presented, but they are what I call “Me Too” technology.

Jumping on the gravy train but late to the party.

All BG electrolyzers produce sludge, particularly if they are making plenty of ExW.  
Because it’s the ExW production that also supports the transmutation.

If you’re not making sludge, you’re not making ExW and the ‘health quality’ of your gas is LOW.  The ExW is a plasma form of water that gives living bodies ENERGY needed to heal.

The BEST (current) way to ‘measure’ the ExW is by inference.  The machines produce too much gas.

So the gas production is ‘over-unity’ when you compare the electrical input to the gas production using Faraday Law.  
In the case of the ER50 I’m 130% efficient.  So this ‘extra gas’ is the ExW.  It’s formed independently of the Faraday Equations.

When using spectroanlysis and chromaphotography the ExW shows up as ‘dry’ water vapor (it’s WATER in a gaseous form that does not condense).

These people should really be studying my work because I’m decades ahead of them.”

Eagle-Research defines Brown’s Gas (aka BG, HHO or HydrOxy) as:

“A mixture of combustible gasses coming out of an electrolyzer that is specifically designed to electrolyze (split) water and to NOT separate the resulting gasses from each other.”

Electrolysis splits water into hydrogen and oxygen by inserting two electrodes into a solution containing a catalyst and water; then running direct current through the solution.
Hydrogen evolves from the negative electrode (cathode) and oxygen evolves from the positive electrode (anode). There are many catalyst choices.

The difference between traditional and Brown’s Gas (BG) electrolyzers is a ‘membrane’ in the solution between the cathode and anode. The membrane traditionally separates the hydrogen and oxygen into two separate streams.

BG electrolyzers do not have a membrane, so all gasses generated come out the same hose.

Because there is no membrane to interrupt the process, the BG electrolysis can make a third gas, a negatively charged plasma form of water (H2O with extra electrons we call Electrically Expanded Water (ExW)), evolving directly out of the solution (not associated with either electrode); making the BG uniquely different from a traditional H2:O2 mixture.

Brown’s Gas is a ratio of 2 parts hydrogen to 1 part oxygen and usually contains a significant water vapor component.

Brown’s Gas is made using water and electricity in specially designed electrolyzers, like our AquaCure.

Research indicates that Brown’s Gas has characteristics that cannot be achieved by simply mixing bottled hydrogen and oxygen in a stoichiometric ratio.

BG contains H, H2, O, O2, H2O (as water vapor) and a special 6th ‘structured’ gas that shows up in ‘dried gas’ as water vapor; Yull Brown called these structures ‘Fluid Crystal’, Chris Eckman calls it “linear water isomer with extra electrons, stable in a Rydberg Cluster”, professor Ruggero Santilli calls them ‘Magnecules’ and George Wiseman calls it ‘Electrically Expanded Water’ (ExW) (a negatively charged plasma form of water).

The 4th state of water (ExW) then acts like a ‘glue’ that holds ‘structures’ of water together, which is why we think atomic oxygen and hydrogen can exist in a stable form. These structures of water (molecules) can be large enough to be heavier than air.

Prep it in the morning and have it at work to drink throughout the day!
Aluminum containers work best… but we shy away from recommending aluminum because of it’s connection with Alzheimer’s.Normally (any other material) sealed sports bottle at room temperature, the goodness is half gone in a day (so use anything you like). Aluminum holds it for and additional day (goodness half gone in two days).
Keeping it cool also helps retain the ‘goodness’. Conversely, heating the bubbled water (like to make tea) drives the goodness away.

George Wiseman says:

“Be sure you have enough layers of Teflon Tape.  

LAYER as many wraps of tape as needed (5 to 9) clockwise around the TOP threads of the silver Water Fill Stem.

Don’t use so much tape that the layers get ‘pushed down’ as you screw on the Tower Cap.

The Tower Cap is NOT supposed to be taken off except for the 100 hour maintenance cleanings.  Fill the AquaCure using the syringe and squirting water into the Tower Cap check valve (which needs the clean water squirted through it to keep it functional).“

Regarding static electricity: Our home is carpeted and we run around in our socks when indoors. Any thoughts? 

  • Ground yourself on (touch) the machine before using it. Keep yourself grounded often.
  • Keep a higher humidity in the room that has the AquaCure in it.
  • Don’t wear static prone clothing around the AquaCure.

The manual says that the AquaCure should be operated in an environment temperature 65 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit. It gets hot here and the main room I live in can get over 90 in summer. Can the device spontaneously combust even when not in use?
No, 90°F is OK for that, it will not self-explode even in higher temperatures. The main reason we put in the temperatures is to keep it out of FREEZING temperatures, which would damage the machine.
Should I keep my AquaCure in a cool room, only?
We don’t recommend to operate it at greater that 90°F because fittings inside might start to leak.

George Wiseman says:

“Ignore the last two digits on the right, they are tenths and hundreds of an hour (yes I know, crazy, but that’s the way they do it).  So the last 2 numbers are % of an hour.

So 0564.66

Would be five hundred sixty four hours and 66% of an hour.

The right two figures are % of an hour, not hours or minutes.

And YES, the red light is supposed to be flashing when gas is being produced.“

Yes, the normal distilled water is good enough. The pharmacy grade is better, but regular is still acceptable.
The purer you can make the water, the better everything will perform. The difference between the two would be hard to measure except over a long period of time.
More sludge will form in the machine with less pure water resulting in need for more frequent clean outs. The less pure water won’t scrub lye quite as well as pure water, (in the humidifier). The less pure water won’t be quite as healthy to drink, due to non-bio-available impurities.
Another option is to buy a good water distiller. George Wiseman recommends one that has a ‘pre heat’ cycle, which gets rid of ‘light’ contaminates before the regular distillation starts. The one he uses is from https://www.waterlovers.com.au And he is negotiating for North American distributorship.

When we use the nose prongs, we don’t seem to be able to feel any gas coming out of them.

The gas volume is too small compared to what you normally breathe, so it is normal to not feel any gas coming out.

The ONLY practical way to know if gas is coming out the cannula is to submerge the nasal prongs under water… and YES it’ll only bubble out of one prong, which one depends on which has the least resistance when under water.

But gas is bubbling in the containers. Does the gas only come into the nose prong tube as we inhale?

It will come SLIGHTLY more as you inhale but it’ll come regardless, (assuming you don’t have a gas leak).

I put the nose prongs under water and no bubbles come out…is this normal?

No, this is not normal. You have a gas leak, likely on or around the bubbler lid. Submerge the bubbler under water and plug the cannula output and you’ll see the bubbles where the leak is.

We currently use about 80 grams (3 ounces or 6 tablespoons) of lye in the AquaCure model AC50. Which is about 0.1% mixture of lye (very lean and safe (relatively)).
Many ‘other’ electrolyzer manufacturers recommend up to 25% lye solution (by weight), which is theoretically optimum for efficiency but in reality far too dense and totally un-needed.

George Wiseman says:

“Lots of people travel and do not take their AquaCure with them. 
I take mine with me, so I drain out all the fluids for travel (unless I KNOW that the machine won’t be turned upside down).

As for storage, the AquaCure can be ’stored’ for months with the lye in it.  The ‘problem’ with storage comes from the water evaporating out and leaving the lye crystals behind, which plug up the small orifices inside the machine.  But if the water cannot escape everything is fine.

If you do have lye crystals in a machine, you’d pour in boiling hot water and dump multiple times to dissolve the lye crystals.

If you have any doubt, the safest is to pour out the lye solution into a storage jar with plastic lid (no metal). 

Then, when you return, if the lye has crystalized in the jar, just remix it into the solution (make sure to dissolve every bit) and pour it back into the AquaCure.“

George Wiseman says:

“I looked online and there were numerous responses. One stated don’t pour down drain, another said let it sit outside for a day so the naptha can blow off then pour it down drain.

Oh man… So much miss-information about lye.  

First, it’s what SOAP was made of for thousands of years (people put it on their skin).  Most soap is still made that way.

Second, there are NO ’naphtha’ or any other ‘off-gassing’ to do.

Third, it’s made naturally by nature everytime there’s a forest fire and rain (it’s made by leaching water through wood ashes), so it’s environmentally compastrible.

Fourth, it’s the main ingredient on almost all drain cleaners.

That is so much miss-information about NaOH, even on WikiPedia (where they show a picture of KOH burns).  I’m actually a little annoyed at such blatant miss-information campaign.

People can literally wash their hands in the lye solution I recommend (80 grams in the machine).  It’ll sting if you get it in mucus membranes or open wounds, but warm water washes it away.  Wash until the ‘slippery’ feeling is gone, just like any soap.

So, as I detail in the Operation Manual and videos, just pour it down the drain.“

“I read to only use a plug with earthing. The adapter supplied has no earth prong. Can I use my own lead from a different device that fits?”
It’s OK to use without earth, but optimal to install an earthed plug.

The AquaCure will ‘work’ with ungrounded power but it is best (safest) to use earthed (grounded) receptacles.

George Wiseman says:

“Yes, yellow tint is perfect color of conditioned electrolyte, which is MORE EFFICIENT then new electrolyte.


The BROWN in solution, during rinsing, is the sludge that normally forms during Brown’s Gas electrolysis.

BLACK bits are ozidized construction debris or solidified mineral (from impurities) or plate decomposition.  If it is plate decomposition, it only matters if the plates actually decompose.  As long as the machine is making gas, it’s OK.“

There are three places water is used in the AquaCure system.
1. The AquaCure itself… 
Which requires PURE water ONLY; because impurities in the water may cause excessive sludge, plate out on the electrodes (reducing efficiency), degrade (eat) the electrodes, cause foaming and/or make poison gasses.
You REALLY need to put ONLY pure (distilled is pure enough) water in the AquaCure.
That said, the only water we recommend putting in the AquaCure is the water from the Humidifier, because it is distilled water and has any trapped lye, which you are then putting back into the machine (where it belongs).
NOTE that the AquaCure AC50 works most efficiently if it is kept near full, so we recommend that you change out the Humidifier water at least often enough to keep the water level
2. The Humidifier…
Again, PURE (distilled) water ONLY because only pure water can efficiently trap the lye molecules that ‘rode out’ on the water mist. Those molecules are trapped in the Humidifier so the gas that goes out to be used is PURE.
However, the Humidifier water must be changed every few hours to make sure it maintains it’s absorption capability. If it gets ‘too full’ of lye, then some might be able to travel out with the gas.
So a perfect solution is to use the Humidifier water to fill the AquaCure when the liquid level drops to ¾ or ½ full.
3. The Drinking Water Bubbler…
If you are not breathing or drinking the final water can be ‘clean’ water (tap or spring), not mineralized.
In Mr. Wiseman’s opinion, the Drinking Water Bubbler should always have distilled water. 

The water in this bubbler is the drinking water and some people have strongly held belief that mineralized water is what they should drink so that’s what they use in the Drinking Water Bubbler bubbler… It doesn’t matter (to the AquaCure operation) what water is in the Drinking Water Bubbler, so it’s your choice; whatever YOU think is best for you.
Note that the Drinking Water Bubbler is the redundant defense to make SURE you never inhale lye. So we do not recommend inhalation from any point in the system except the gas output of the Drinking Water Bubbler.

The problem is that your well water tests high because of impurities. Just because the pH is high doesn’t make the water healthful. The water needs to be healthful because of hydrogen, not minerals.
Lye makes water have a pH of 13…Would you drink lye water? (please don’t).George Wiseman’s recommendation is drink only distilled water that has been bubbled with BG.

You should not need to add much or often. Keep your old electrolyte when you clean out the machine, add a bit of new lye as needed (when the electrolyte is out of the machine) and you’ll be good for many years.

99% pure lye should be fine no matter the source.

Machine Maintenance

George Wiseman recommends:

Maintenance rinses

About every 100 hours of operation,
(might need to be more often if water impurities make more sludge) Because some machines make more sludge.
Which (believe it or not) is a GOOD THING, because this sludge is a by-product of the ExW production process so more sludge indicates more ExW.

First dump the lye solution into a plastic bucket or stainless steel pot (save it, don’t pour it down the drain).  Do NOT use aluminum containers or utensils, Lye eats aluminum.

Second, put about 3/4 liter (quart) of hot (not boiling) water (can be hot tap water) into the AquaCure and swish it around by slowly raising the AquaCure front and back up and down, to ’swish’ the water up and down in the sight tube.  

To clean the sight tube of lye crystals and/or soap formation, it’s better to rock the machine by lifting the front and back (not quickly) so that the hot water can completely surge up into and down the sight tube.

Then dump the rinse water out (down the sink is OK),repeating as many times as needed until the water comes out clear (no sludge or debris).  

And/or the floating ball comes free and floats at the same level as the water in the electrolyzer.
And/or the sight tube is clear of lye or soap ‘fog’.

NOTE: If your ball is sticking, it’s usually because the ball has lye or soap deposits on it, which cause it to sink or stick to the tube wall, a good rinsing will usually free it. 
Rinse again and again until the ball floats free.

NOTE: Vinegar or citric acid are NOT needed for flushing, plain hot tap water is OK.  
There are no ‘deposits’ for such cleaning agents to dissolve as lye itself is a great ‘soap’.
We no longer recommend ever putting citric acid in the AquaCure, because trace oils cause foaming and oil combined with lye forms soap which clouds the sight tube and can cause internal plugging issues.

Third, let the lye solution sit for a few hours and all the sludge will settle to the bottom.  You can then suck the clarified (it’ll be yellow tinted) lye solution out of the container using a hose on a syringe and/or filter the saved lye solution through a coffee filter and then pour it back into the AquaCure.   ONLY about 1.25 liter, don’t overfill the machine.  

At this point your sight tube should be working.  
However, don’t depend on the ‘floating ball’ because sometimes it doesn’t.  Look for the fluid meniscus (liquid level line).

You keep the old lye because it is ‘conditioned’ and more efficient than ‘new’ lye.  It does not matter if it’s discolored (that occurs in any case).  What matters is to remove the debris and sludge; otherwise the solution will last for years.  I’m still using lye solution I mixed in 1986.

Note: If your gas production has been reducing, it may be because your lye solution has gotten weak.  

You will lose a tiny amount of lye over time (for several reasons) so you can add an ounce of lye when the solution is out of the machine, but ONLY if you need it (the gas production reduces or quits if you don’t have enough lye).  

You do not want the lye solution to become too concentrated.  Too much lye in the machine leads to crystallization which clouds the sight tube and can cause internal plugging of small orifices.

We recommend the model EA-H160 to have a solution of 1 ounce of lye to a quart of water and the model AC50 to have 4 ounces of lye to a quart of water.  These are for initial fill ONLY. 
Regular fills of water are distilled water ONLY.

NOTE:  Sludge normally forms as a side effect of electrolysis and is not your ‘fault’.  Although if you do not use PURE (distilled) water, the sludge will form MUCH faster

NOTE: That you should be using ONLY the water from the Humidifier tank to refill your AquaCure, NOT fresh distilled water.

The water in the Humidifier tank contains any trapped lye and by using that water, you are putting the trapped lye back into the machine.

If there is excess water in the Humidifier after re-filling the AquaCure, dump the excess down the sink, so that you always re-start with a full fresh charge of distilled water.  Some people were just replacing the amount taken out with distilled.

Then we recommend that you wash the Humidifier tank (with warm tap water) until the slippery feeling is gone.  Do NOT put the Humidifier Tank or the Drinking Water Bubbler in a dishwasher, they will melt. 

Always refill the Humidifier with pure distilled water so that it can efficiently trap lye.  The Humidifier water needs to be regularly changed (because only fresh pure water can only absorb lye).

Further FAQ:
You write: “you can add an ounce of lye when the solution is out of the machine, but ONLY if you need it.” By 1 oz do you mean 1 oz volume (6 teaspoons)? 

GW/ Correct.

How do I determine whether I need to add 1 oz of lye? 

If the gas production has visibly reduced and you do not have a gas leak.  Most times more lye is NOT needed.  The initial charge should last for up to 5 years before more is needed.

Would the 1 oz of lye be added exactly as the manual and video explain for a brand new (empty) AquaCure, except that only 1 ounce of lye is added, and it’s put into the existing lye solution rather than into plain distilled water?

GW/ Correct.

How would one know if gas productive were reduced?

GW/ It will be visible.  Gradually less bubbles to the point there are almost none.  
Take care though, because a gas leak will reduce bubbles too.  
The Key Difference is if you look down the fill stem while the machine is running (assuming you have enough fluid inside to cover the white plastic block down inside)…
If there are lots of bubbles INSIDE the machine, then you have a gas leak.
If there are almost no bubbles, then you have a low lye concentration in the solution.

Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting

We took off the blue light when we went to translucent tubing because it was near impossible to see the water meniscus (water line) even with the blue light and people were over-filling the machine, thinking that the blue light in the bottom was the fluid level.

But customers wanted it back, so we put the blue light back in, and have a little white ball to help them see the meniscus. But sometimes the ball sticks, so it isn’t an ideal solution, but the best we can do right now.

75 lph is NOT the ‘specified’ volume of the AquaCure.

75 lph is the MAXIMUM volume if everything is optimized for gas production. 

We have deliberately throttled back on the gas production and do not tell customers what they need to do to get maximum gas production. We do not want customers to try it, thinking more is better, and severely injure (or kill) themselves if the gas explodes in their lungs. 

For therapeutic use, more is NOT better. Once the blood is saturated with hydrogen you breathe out as much as you breathe in AND TOO MUCH IS EXPLOSIVE. Any air mixture that contains more than 4% hydrogen is EXPLOSIVE. 4% concentration is PLENTY to bubble in water (to saturate it) and to breathe (to saturate the blood). Most of the scientific studies use 2% hydrogen (all studies have had positive results).

For health application, an adult male shouldn’t get more than about 18 lph to keep the hydrogen content under the 4% limit. So anything over 18 lph is dangerous and not needed for therapeutic use.

For therapeutic use, forget ‘vigourous’ gas production and think ‘enough’ gas production.

If the AquaCure is producing up to 18 lph, it’s FULLY operational for therapeutic use.

All that said, we DO also promote the AquaCure as a ‘machine that can do everything’ so you may want to do things like:

  1. Fuel a microtorch
  2. Provide breathing gas for more than one person
  3. More quickly infuse HydrOxy into water
  4. Infuse HydrOxy into larger volumes of water
  5. Make New Water
  6. Use HydrOxy for carbon-fuel combustion enhancement

The MAIN thing you can do to increase gas production:

Simply add more lye. If you add more lye, up to a mixture of 25% by weight (so 1 kg of water and 0.25 kg of lye) the AquaCure will go to near it’s maximum volume production (it will also rise a bit more as it warms up).

Caveat 1:
George Wiseman uses a lean electrolyte mixture (1 ounce of lye per quart of water) for several reasons:

  1. It’s only as caustic as strong soap. Not enough to cause chemical burns (though you still want to keep it out of mucus membranes and wash it off until the slippery feeling is gone). So a lean mixture is safer.
  2. This lean mixture keeps the gas production of the AquaCure down into the safe range for a breathing gas.
  3. A lean mixture is much less likely to foam (make soap bubbles) so there is less ‘carry-over’ of lye into the filter and humidifier. (also keeping the liquid level lower helps this). Again, safer.

Caveat 2:

We do not recommend (and seriously caution against) increasing gas production UNLESS you have a micro-torch (or some sort of restriction valve) so that you can adjust the gas volume for safe breathing.

George Wiseman personally breathes a 9% mixture of hydrogen, but is aware of the risk and takes personal responsibility. He ONLY uses the nasal cannula (masks are MUCH more prone to explosions), grounds himself (and the machine) so that there is no ‘static voltage’ potential difference and have it set up in a static free environment.

Don’t think an explosion ‘can’t happen to you’ or get complacent. It CAN happen and HAS happened several times to people using hydrogen for health. NO ONE has been hurt (yet) because they have followed the protocols.

Two stories:

A man was using BG to treat the arthritis in his hand, so he had his hand bagged (so it was a high hydrogen concentration (BG is 66% hydrogen)) and his dog needed to go outside. He took the tube out of the bag, but left the bag on his hand and shuffled across the carpet to the door and as he reached out to the doorknob, a spark jumped (to the OUTSIDE) of the bag and the potential difference of voltage (from the inside to the outside of the bag) ignited the BG and the bag went BANG.

He was not hurt, because it’s like a balloon popping, just startled.

The second story is about a man who was breathing the BG and his amorous wife was rubbing his thigh. She is prone to building up static electricity and happened to touch the humidifier lid. Again, the spark OUTSIDE the plastic ignited the BG inside and blew the lid off the humidifier. The man got a slight bruise from flying plastic but otherwise, no damage.

They bought a new humidifier and are still using the AquaCure… But this brings up another point… GLASS! MANY people ask if they can use glass (and/or are doing it without asking). GLASS is DANGEROUS because a BG explosion will shatter glass and glass shards flying are MUCH MORE DANGEROUS than plastic.

We use ‘food grade’ plastics so please do not be concerned with VOCs or other poisons. And if you MUST use glass, then do NOT use the AquaCure.

If your machine (ER50, AquaCure or other BG electrolyzer) is producing too much gas for therapeutic breathing, seriously consider throttling it back using the micro-torch valve, (or some sort of restriction valve).

Caveat 3:

A strong lye concentration is more prone to foaming and misting, so WILL put more lye into your filter / humidifier, resulting in the need to change out the ‘scrubbing water’ more often.

You’ll know if there is lye getting into your drinking water if the water ‘tastes bad’.

If you use a strong lye mixture in the AquaCure, keep the liquid level lower when you are breathing. However, for maximum gas production you’ll want to keep the liquid level at about the 80% to ‘full’ levels.

Do you feel that the maximum concentration of hydrogen necessary for blood saturation is 4%?

NO. 4% is the maximum SAFE concentration to breathe. 4% is far above the concentration necessary to achieve full blood saturation (2% is proven to adequately achieve saturation). Once blood is saturated with hydrogen, you start breathing OUT as much as you as breathing IN. So more does nothing (or very little) therapeutically.

A higher breathing percentage does saturate the blood (or water, etc.) faster, but once saturated is of no benefit, and is potentially explosive so we do not  recommend breathing anything over 4%.

Then the question is, why does George Wiseman personally breathe 9%?

“As an experiment using myself as the guinea pig. To see what will happen. So far, I haven’t blown myself up.”

And, how do you adjust to 9% if it comes out of the cannula at 66%? Is that by virtue of the dilution that occurs in your nasal passages and with higher lpm flow from your personal machine?

“Correct. I don’t adjust, I just breathe the mixture as it comes out. If I wanted less (a lower percentage), the AquaCure is designed to be able to do that using the torch valve, as I described in the previous answer.”

Would just using a gallon ziplock bag be a simpler way to get a ballpark estimate for gas flow?

“I’m thinking not accurate. Too many variables. How do you seal it? How do you know when it is full? But it is better than nothing… Maybe ‘ballpark’.”

When we use the nose prongs, we don’t seem to be able to feel any gas coming out of them.

The gas volume is too small compared to what you normally breathe, so it is normal to not feel any gas coming out.

The ONLY practical way to know if gas is coming out the cannula is to submerge the prongs under water… and YES it’ll only bubble out of one prong, which one depends on which has the least resistance when under water.

But gas is bubbling in the containers. Does the gas only come into the nose prong tube as we inhale?

It will come SLIGHTLY more as you inhale but it’ll come regardless, (assuming you don’t have a gas leak).

I put the nose prongs under water and no bubbles come out…is this normal?

No, this is not normal. You have a gas leak, likely on or around the bubbler lid. Submerge the bubbler under water and plug the cannula output and you’ll see the bubbles where the leak is.

You write: Do not allow breathed air:HydrOxy mixture to exceed 4% (by weight) of hydrogen in air. Me: how do I control this percentage?

Most people don’t bother. If you are breathing it with cannulas it’s highly unlikely that you’ll get a spark up in your nose. George Wiseman breathes 9% hydrogen for at least 4 hours a day and has for almost two years now.

However, to answer your question, you first need to know how the volume of air the person ‘breathes’ then you’d calculate the MAXIMUM HydrOxy you that would keep the hydrogen portion (of the breathed mixture of air and HydrOxy) under the 4% level production.

Once you know the maximum gas rate allowed you can control it with the torch valve. Simply set the valve to allow only enough gas so that you do not exceed the 4%.

Or is it auto-magic 2% with the AquaCure? Do I need to concern myself with this? Is this simply a matter of how much Lye one uses?

That is one of the reason’s we tell people to use one ounce of lye per quart of water. When the mixture is lean, it limits amperage flow, which limits gas production.

I read to only use a plug with earthing. The adapter supplied has no earth prong. Can I use my own lead from a different device that fits?

It’s OK to use without earth, but optimal to install an earthed plug.

From a Health Practitioner:

“Fascinated by your research and discoveries in regard to health as I am a health practitioner that uses many alternative methods such as PEMF, EWOT, Lasers, electric stim, vibration, etc. I know you can’t make medical claims, but how might this therapy affect cancers, infections, etc., in other words, what is the mechanism by which Brown’s Gas can possibly affect cancer or viruses or bacteria or fungi?”

George Wiseman says:

“WOW, you cut right to the point Simply put, hydrogen is a FOOD and corrects a hydrogen nutrition deficiency that has resulted in illness and ailments.

Our bodies are fantastic machines and know how to heal themselves, if given what they need to heal.

But they also ‘know’ how to survive when NOT given what they need.  

An example is when the body gets cold, it knows to shut off blood flow to the extremities to preserve core temperature.

Similarly, with hydrogen deficiency, the body starts shutting off ‘extraneous’ (not immediately life threatening) systems, to preserve life.

The first thing that shuts off is the regeneration systems, so wounds scar instead of healing.

The next thing to go is the immune systems, so people get sick and eventually ‘auto-immune’ diseases happen.

The last thing is that organs start to shut down.

All this happens even when people aren’t drinking enough water and eating plenty of food.

People are (by volume)  62% hydrogen, 24% oxygen, 12% carbon and 2% everything else.

Hydrogen is our most important macro-nutrient.  Every detail of our bodies are built using it in one way or another, even our DNA is assembled around a spine of water.  Every chemical process uses hydrogen directly or indirectly.

We cannot get hydrogen by breathing air, like we get oxygen.  

Hydrogen is tightly bound on this planet because once released, it rises back to God.  

We get our hydrogen from our FOOD (hydrocarbons)

It takes a lot of energy to pull hydrogen away from the molecules it is bound to, so that it can be used.  To survive we depend on one of the earliest forms of life… Bacteria.

There are specialized bacteria in our Colin that complete the job that our digestion system prepared (with mastication, enzymes, acids, etc)

EXCEPT that the modern miracle of antibiotics, artificial sweeteners and a thousand other chemicals KILL these sensitive bacteria…
Also, we generally are not eating the kinds of foods these bacteria like (such as fiber) so other forms of organisms (like candida) tend to push them out.

And if there are not enough of them, the food doesn’t complete it’s digestion and we become hydrogen deficient.  Most of us (on the planet today) are now hydrogen deficient.

So, with hydrogen supplementation an AMAZING thing happens…

First organs come back to life, doing what they were intended to do.  In my case, my heart healed a bad valve (heart murmur) that I’d had since childhood.  My skin lost it’s psoriasis, my hair is growing back, etc.

The next thing that happens is the body’s immune systems come back online.  
In my case I haven’t been sick (with anything) since 2005 when I started drinking HydrOxy enriched water) and (once I started breathing HydrOxy in March of 2016) my body was able to heal from hand warts and a planter’s wart (viruses) that I’d had since childhood.  

The next thing that happens is the body’s regeneration systems come back online.  In my case all my scars (again, that I had since childhood) disappeared, wounds and sprains heal extraordinarily fast and I look 15 years younger than I did 3 years ago (pictures to prove).

In addition to all that, physical ability improves (both strength and endurance), noted by many athletes.

Many people are suffering needlessly and dying from a nutritional deficiency no one even knew they had.
By supplementing with hydrogen, they regain their health (their body’s heal themselves) and enjoy quality of life.

HydrOxy is a therapeutic mixture of hydrogen, oxygen and ExW.

ExW is a major component of HydrOxy (Brown’s Gas).  

HydrOxy doesn’t do anything to cancer or viruses or bacteria or fungi.  

The AquaCure provides the gaseous mixture (HydrOxy) that is the FOOD (nutrition and energy) the body needs to heal itself and then rejuvenate to a healthful vitality.

With the body’s organs and immune systems functioning correctly, virtually all cancer, pathogens, fungi, etc. are eliminated and with the regeneration systems back online, wounds and organs heal quickly.

Any good Doctor knows that they do not heal.  The BEST they can do is mitigate catastrophe and give the body what it needs to heal itself.”

Prep it in the morning and have it at work to drink throughout the day!

Aluminum works best. Normally (any other material) the goodness is half gone in a day (so use anything you like). Aluminum holds it for and additional day (goodness half gone in two days).

Keeping it cool also helps retain the ‘goodness’. Conversely, heating the bubbled water (like to make tea) drives the goodness away.

George Wiseman says:

“I’m assuming you are talking about the hydrogen in the water when you bubble HydrOxy (aka Brown’s Gas or HHO) through it… 
Because HydrOxy machine gas volume production is normally measured in liters per hour (lph) or milliliters per minute (mL/m)… NOT parts per million (ppm).

PPM is appropriate to measure hydrogen ppm in water.  Hydrogen in water is a RESULT of bubbling (infusing) the hydrogen gas into the water, not the measurement of volume of gas produced by the machine.

The more volume of hydrogen the machine can generate, the faster the water can be infused with hydrogen, but the water can eventually be FULLY infused / enriched / saturated with hydrogen no matter the gas production of the machine.

The AquaCure AC50 produces 50 lph (833 mL/m) of HydrOxy Gas.  This is enough to fully enrich a liter of water in 10 minutes.

The PPM of hydrogen in water is REALLY hard to measure when enriching the water with HydrOxy, because ALL ‘simple’ hydrogen measuring techniques (like titration and cheap meters) are compromised by the oxygen content of the HydrOxy gas.  The oxygen partially negates the titration causing it to ‘under-read’ the hydrogen volume.

BG hydrogen cannot be measured accurately with H2 Blue (or any titration drops) because the OXYGEN in the water negates the test.  I have confirmation of that that direct from the H2 Blue manufacturer.

Further, it’s really hard to even estimate the volume of hydrogen in water (that also contains oxygen) because the water’s ability to absorb oxygen and hydrogen is dramatically different and changes with temperature, pressure and impurities…

You need a $20,000 meter to do it.  One that is designed to ignore all gasses BUT hydrogen.  We found one such meter (in Germany) and measured the hydrogen content of HydrOxy bubbled water to be about 0.5 ppm.

Yes that is much less than 1.6 ppm, but that’s because the water is also saturated with oxygen and ExW, both of which enhance the therapeutic value of the hydrogen

Note that our BREATHING protocol puts 100 TIMES more hydrogen in the blood than drinking hydrogen enriched water, because water only holds a few ppm (if no oxygen, about 1.6 ppm at SATP).

Breathing (inhaling) HydrOxy for 12 seconds puts as much hydrogen in the blood as drinking a fully infused (1.6 ppm) LITER of hydrogen rich water (HRW).

AND with HydrOxy you get ExW which super-charges the water (and gas) with extra bio-available electrons; helping the body heal in ways that straight HRW does not (cannot) do.

For example, enhancing the immune system to get rid of pathogens (like wart virus) that it could NOT do with HRW and

re-starting the body’s regeneration system (stem cells) so that it can actually HEAL scars (they disappear) that couldn’t be healed before.

So ppm of hydrogen in the water really becomes redundant when applying (comparing to) HydrOxy gas. 

Rest assured that the HydrOxy water is therapeutically infused / enhanced with hydrogen and HydrOxy is proving to be MORE healthful than ’straight’ hydrogen.“
