Goodsphere is a total pure air system. The Swiss-designed technology is simple and efficient. Toxins, pollution, dust mites, bacteria, smoke and allergens from the air are washed in a bowl filled with water combined with a small amount of one of the fragrances from the essence ranges.
Q2. Can I use the Goodsphere essences in other air purifiers?
Yes! The Goodsphere essences are completely compatible with the Antibac2k Magic Ball, PureAire, and all other brands of water based air purification systems.
Q3. What volume of air is cleaned?
The airflow for the Goodsphere air systems is about 120ft³/hour (3.5m³/hour). The 'Original System' and 'Goodsphere Dew (F16)' will efficiently clean an area of up to 800ft² (75m²). The 'Bubble' and 'Groove' will cover an area of 400ft² (37.5m²).
Q4. How much electricity will it consume?
The Original Goodsphere System only consumes 15W of electricity. It is economical enough to keep running for 24 hours, 7 days a week without supervision. The Goodsphere Bubble and Goodsphere Groove Systems consume under 2W of electricity. It is designed to be used for a maximum of 12 hours per day. Bubble/Groove Systems with the new improved motor (after April 2008) can be used 24/7. The Goodsphere Dew (F16) uses 5W of electric.
Q5. How often do I change the water?
Only if the water becomes dirty. If people are smoking in the room with the system you will see the water change to a muddy brown. If the air is polluted it will turn from grey to black. For both systems you only need to ensure that the water level stays above the minimum mark. It is our experience that it only needs refilling once a day.
Q6. How much essence per usage do I need?
When you first use the Goodsphere we recommend you use quarter to half of one of the sample tubes you get with your Goodsphere to begin with. Add more for larger rooms or for a more concentrated fragrance. Once you have used the Goodsphere for a few times you can start to try different essences and different quantities to find a level that you like. Bottles have a dropper fitted to the bottle top to aid use. The great thing about the Goodsphere is that you control the level of fragrance - if you want a subtle aroma then use slightly less essence, for a more dominant fragrance add a bit more - you are in control! The Goodsphere system works the same way as conventional aromatherapy burners and candles, however a Goodsphere is safe to use unsupervised. The fragrance will not become increasingly concentrated with continuous use. NOTE: Stronger more stubborn odours will require more essence initially with continuous use of the system for a period of up to one week before results are noticeable.
Q7. Can I use essential oils?
No, essential oils do not emulsify effectively, or safely, with water. Using essential oils can damage the motor and invalidate your warranty.
Q8. Are the essences safe?
All our essences are non-toxic, non-combustible, non-alcoholic and made from natural botanical extracts. As with all pure essential oils, we recommend you to avoid contact with the eyes and contact with the skin, and the essences are not meant to be ingested.
Q9. Do I need a filter?
No! There are no cartridges to replace like there are with other systems.
Q10. How do I keep my Goodsphere clean?
The Bowl - For best results, rinse out the bowl with cold water and wipe dry with a cloth or sponge. Avoid abrasive detergents or scourers. The Lid - To clean under the lid of the Goodsphere, wipe around the edges of the motor with a dry cloth. In the larger Original Goodsphere System also wipe around the area where the plug lead enters the motor housing. Remove the motor spoke by turning anti-clockwise until you hear a click. Rinse the motor spoke under a cold tap or use commercial lime scale removers to remove any blockages. Replace the spoke in the same position that it was removed from by turning it clockwise until it clicks back in place. NOTE: When realigning the motor spoke after cleaning, if the spoke is not aligned securely or sometimes to the original position that it was removed from this may cause added vibrations and may make your Goodsphere seem noisier. Make sure that the arrow on the spoke lines up with the mark on the lid.
Q11. How do I clean any limescale build up?
Wipe around the glass bowl periodically to avoid excess buildup or it can be soaked with either a commercial lime scale remover or, for a more natural alternative, use a solution containing lemon or white vinegar. For build up under the motor lid, use a moist cloth to wipe away the lime scale using the same products you would for cleaning the bowl.
