Water Ionizer Price Considerations
Does a high price mean that particular water ionizer is better? No,in my experience I have found that price does not necessarily equate to better quality in a water ionizer. Choose the water ionizer features that are important to you, then use the comparison chart above to find the right machine for your needs. While some water ionizer companies may make claims to sell “The Only Real water ionizer,” or “The Cadillac of Water Ionizers,” these are simply sales slogans.
I object to sales people making false claims and using scare tactics and I consider this to be a very poor business practice. Look at the things listed above with any water ionizer you’re considering, and you’ll find the best ionizer for you. I encourage potential water ionizer buyers to get the real facts from an objective and knowledgeable source.
I’ve been drinking ionized water for over 20 years now, and I’m convinced that water ionizers DO work to help people with their health. Years ago my first water ionizer helped me enormously. The biggest problem I had was allergies, and with my water ionizer, they all disappeared. This was with a far inferior water ionizer than the ones above. [It only got about -250 ORP per pH level of 9.5, whereas the good ionizers I sell today get up around -300 to -600 ORP at that 9.5 pH level.] With that same inferior water ionizer my health and the health of my five children changed drastically. Prior to drinking alkaline water, we all made regular doctor visits for the usual complaints - sore throats, ear infections, and allergies galore, but after regular alkaline water use, we were able to reduce these visits to simple annual well child check ups.
The water ionizers I sell on my site are all there because they’re good ones. I refuse to sell a water ionizer that is poorly designed. Each are comparable with the rest. While some may outperform the others in certain areas, they probably are the underdog in other categories. Buying a water ionizer boils down to personal choice and budget. I have tested the highest-priced water ionizers with great expectations, but found them to be comparable with the others, and often not even better in the most important categories.
Do not be fooled by a sales person’s hype if they attempt to imply their water ionizer is the only one that has health benefits or performs certain functions. It just wouldn’t be true. The Japanese Health Department recognized that ionized alkaline water from water ionizers had proven health benefits and described water ionizers as health devices. This recognition was given with no regard to a particular brand. The origin of the development of water ionizers was Korea and Japan, which built off of the knowledge of the other. Korea recognizes water ionizers made in Korea as medical devices [provided they are good enough] and Japan recognizes the water ionizers made in Japan.. that’s how it works. Each country examines its own manufacturers’
devices. Jupiter, KYK and Tyent are all approved by Korea to make medical devices, and in Korea their water ionizers are recognized as medical devices.
I have first-hand knowledge of people who many years ago [when I bought my first water ionizer] experienced unbelievable health benefits from ionized water. Most of the water ionizer companies today didn’t exist at that time. As a matter of fact, back in the 70’s Michael Moon [the founder of Jupiter water ionizers] was a very wealthy manufacturer with failing health. He was introduced to water ionizers by a friend, and after regaining his youthful health with a primitive crude water ionizer of the time he decided to develop the superior quality Jupiter water ionizers we have today.
Life Water Ionizers
You may also notice that Life Ionizers [Life 7600, Life 8100, Life 9200, etc.] are not compared on this page. Read these articles to find out why we do not trust or compare most Life Ionizers.
We don’t deal with the Lifeionizer company and have only tested one of their ionizers for this chart. I don’t advocate Lifeionizers and you can read more about it here.
Enagic Kangen Water Ionizers and Impart Excel Water Ionizers
You may have noticed that I don't sell the Enagic Kangen Water Ionizers. The reason for this is not that they're bad water ionizers at all. You can see on the chart that they rate among the better water ionizers available. I don't sell them due to an exclusivity clause in their marketing contract, which would make me sign that I wouldn't sell other brands. Of course I couldn't do that. I do sell the Impart Group's Excel water ionizers, though, which are designed by the same engineers. Impart claims that their IE-900 is better in every way than the Enagic SD501, but I haven't verified that yet, one way or the other.
The Excel water ionizers aren't on the comparison chart yet, but most of their features would be the same as the Enagic. The warranty period for Excel water ionizers is less than most, 1 year full parts/labor and then 5 years for the electrolysis chamber if you buy their $39.00 cleaning cartridge and use it yearly.
