Finding the Best Alkaline Water Ionizers on the Market
So you’ve made the choice to invest in an alkaline water ionizer machine for your home. Luckily, you’ve managed to steer clear of the numerous alkaline water scam products available (like alkaline water drops and sticks) and decided you want the benefits of real antioxidant-packed alkaline water that genuinely gives you the long-term health benefits that you’ve been looking for.
What’s more, you figure that getting to drink acid-busting water from the comfort of your own home, on tap, every day is worth every penny.
But with so many different alkaline water ionizers on the market, you are going to need to know what to look for to get the best product for your hard earned cash.
The Best Alkaline Water Ionizers Have Good Water Filtration
Not a lot of people know that the tap water they drink every day can have traces of pesticides, chemicals and even pharmaceutical drugs floating around inside it. So even before you think about turning your water supply into antioxidant alkaline drinking water, you should prioritize banishing these nasty contaminants from your diet first. From traces of Prozac to nitrates and chloramine, unfiltered water with traces of this stuff inside it is going to neutralize the benefits of using good alkaline water ionizers, and while municipal water companies do treat water so that it is “safe” to drink, they are not going to get rid of contaminants completely.
Luckily, filtration is what good alkaline water ionizers specialize in. So when you are doing your shopping for one, the filtration system that the machine uses is an important area to compare. For high efficacy, look for a dual filtration system on your ionizer. Products using single filter systems that try to cram too many stages into a small space ritually clog up, and you end up changing your filter too often at great expense. What you are looking for is a dual filtration system that is at least .1 micron, preferably more. .1 micron gives a 99.9% filtration rate, which will bring all those horrible contaminants down to non-detectable levels in your drinking water.
Another thing you may want to consider is filters that have ion resin exchange to remove fluoride and heavy metals. Most water ionizer filters do not have this, but the latest EOS Genesis and Revelations ranges do.
Great Alkaline Water Ionizers Don’t Lure You With Crafty Warranties
Everyone would take a ‘lifetime manufacturer warranty’ given the choice but many of us are unaware of just how many hurdles and hoops we have to jump through to qualify for such an alluring amount of customer care. Unfortunately, the important information about exactly what companies mean when they offer a ‘lifetime warranty’ for alkaline water ionizers is often hidden in the small print. As with anything, when it sounds too good to be true, it usually is!
So there is nonsense like having to send your ionizer back to the company for repair once a year or your warranty is voided, or not being told there is actually a limit on the amount of water you ionize which can break your warranty agreement. Good products don’t need to lure you with this trickery, so make sure you do the research so that you know exactly what you are getting. EOS alkaline water ionizers, for example, offer a straight 5-year comprehensive parts, labor, and shipping warranty with no restrictions on usage.
The Best Alkaline Water Ionizers Use an SMPS Rather Than a Transformer
Many years ago when alkaline water ionizers were first invented, they used something called transformers to deliver electricity to their plates. The problem with this is that systems using transformers are inefficient as they produce what is termed “dirty” electrical currents. In simple terms, this means that if you buy a water ionizer that uses a transformer system, the internal components will be damaged over time.
Look for the better models that use a switched mode power supply, or SMPS, which produces a cleaner electrical current that doesn’t waste electricity as heat. Alkaline water ionizers which use SMPS also creates a more precise ionization, which helps more easily deliver to you the antioxidant water that you need.
