Salin Plus brings together the best of all worlds: cutting-edge technology (Gold Medal at the 51st World Exhibition for Innovation, Research and New Technology in Brussels, 2002) and low maintenance, meaning there isn’t much that can go wrong with your device!
However, there are some tips and tricks that can help optimise therapeutic benefit and maximise the longevity of your device.
While a generally robust device, humidity can be problematic. In high humidity or damp environments, the dry salt filter will absorb ambient moisture from the air, compromising salt crystal structure and in turn its ability to be distributed in aerosol form.
If your device is leaking water, the filter has been corrupted by moisture! Unfortunately, the only solution is to replace the filter with a new one and regulate room moisture.
The good news is this issue occurs in only 1% of cases, and with the right precautions, the Salin Plus Salt Therapy device can be used effectively in humid conditions by:
It is also worth noting that “filter flooding” can occur when the device is not in use! Salin Plus should be stored in a dry, cool place; ideally in its originally packaging.
A little-known fact: oily or greasy environments can also compromise the device’s filter! Avoid using Salin Plus in the kitchen, or around oil burners and diffusers.
Timely filter replacement goes a long way to ensuring you enjoy maximum benefit from your Salin Plus device! After four months of (recommended) nightly use, salt crystals are eroded meaning the concentration of microparticles dispersed into the air is gradually reduced. In addition to this, the filter will have also collected dust and other pollutants from the air reducing operational efficiency by the end of the four-month period.
Many long-time customers have reported that they “just know” when the filter needs replacing because troublesome symptoms can resurface. The best tip is to schedule four-monthly reminders to replace your filter and keep an eye out for monthly discount codes by signing up for the Salin Plus newsletter.
(If you pre-purchase your filters, be sure to store them in a dry and cool place to avoid moisture damage.)
To maximise therapeutic benefit, it is important that your device is positioned at or around the same height as your bed, aimed toward you and unobstructed by clutter or furniture.
Do not place the device on the ground or too high up. The bedside table is the ideal place for Salin Plus!
The faster the fan speed, the greater the quantity of air drawn into the device, and concentration of particles released back out into the room. Many long-time customers use the device on the highest setting, every night; others only use it on high during times of illness and reduce speed to maintain health and wellbeing. There is no right or wrong answer! Select the fan speed that suits you best when you need it.
Don’t send your used filters to landfill, they can be recycled! Refer to our blog for advice on how to prepare your used filters for recycling.
