maintenance is necessary to keep your clean cell functioning
the first 30 days, your Clean Cell goes through a
break-in period. It is recommended to change the water
Simply remove the lower hose of the Clean Cell and
drain the electrolyte into a plastic bucket.
(2) Your water reservoir should be empty. To empty
your water reservoir, start the vehicle with the lower
hose removed.The automatic water fill will empty the
(3) Reconnect the lower hose.
(4) Mix together 2 cups of distilled water with 2
ounces of KOH in a plastic container. Read the instructions
on the label.
This should give you a 15% mixture. Add electrolyte
to your empty water reservoir.
(5) Start the vehicle and wait for the automatic water
fill to pump the electrolyte into the Clean Cell.
(6) After about one minute, the water reservoir will
be completely empty. Turn off the vehicle and refill
the water reservoir with distilled water.
That's it, you're all done.
this procedure once a year.
Clean Cell requires some kind of electrolyte in order
to make the distilled water conduct electricity.
You have several electrolyte choices. Listed in the
order we prefer......
(1) KOH 10-15%
KOH is Potassium Hydroxide, it is commonly used because
it is easy to dissolve (used for making soap).
Link to buy KOH $7.00
Vinegar (white vinegar 5% acid)
(3) Baking Soda (this will plug up your cell). You
will need to clean your cell every month.
We recommend using (KOH) because
this is not used in the electrolysis process and only
needs to be added once. Sodium hydroxide can also
be used, but will shorten the life span of your cell
and does get used in the electrolysis process.
You can use vinegar, but you'll have to continually
add vinegar to your water tank (white vinegar 5% acid).
some of these are acids similar to battery acid. Always
wear protective goggles and rubber gloves when performing
maintenance to your Clean Cell. Try not to spill any
electrolyte on the paint.
can add a drain valve to the lower hose when you install
your Clean Cell to make this easier. Just make sure
it is plastic and chemical resistant.
the event that your Clean Cell stops performing properly,
check all of the connections first.
a VOM to check if 12 volts is getting to the cell.
If not, you might have a bad relay or fuse.
KOH will keep the inside of your cell nice and clean
but in the event that your cell stopped performing
and it's not the electronics, you can try this.
Disconnect the positive wire from the cell.
Drain the electrolyte from your cell by removing lower
(3) Start the vehicle and wait for the water reservoir
to empty itself.
Reconnect the lower hose.
Add 2 cups of CLR and 1 cup distilled water to the
water reservoir or until the cell is full of CLR.
Start the engine and wait for the automatic water
fill to fill the cell.
Let the vehicle sit overnight then drain out the CLR,
rinse out the cell with distilled water and refill
the cell with electrolyte. Reconnect the hot wire.
*Do not operate the Clean Cell
with CLR as the electrolyte*
