Is there a Water Ionizer Consumer Reports?
Unfortunately, no, there isn’t a water ionizer Consumer Reports article. Boy, we sure do wish there was one, too, because instead of a legitimate 3rd party evaluation of water ionizers that Consumer Reports would offer, what you find instead is a whole lot of fake reports by dishonest companies.
So Many FAKE Water Ionizer Consumer Reports
It seems all of the major US water ionizer distributors have set up a fake water ionizer review website. Tyent USA leads the pack with three fake review websites: ionizerresearch.com, waterionizer.com, and alkalinewater.com. All three of these websites give Tyent water ionizers 5 stars and every other water ionizers get less than 5 stars. They don’t even have an “about us” page, which is mandatory for any legitimate website, which should immediately send up some red flags.
Tyent is not alone. Life Ionizers has set up alkalinewaterionizerreviews.com (whew! could they fit any more keywords in there?). It’s the same nonsense as the Tyent site but with a very prominently promoted secondary site called waterionizerexpert.com . Life wants you to know that if you have any questions about their fake water ionizer reviews, you can go to this supossed water ionizer expert website and get all your questions answered. Of course, the “expert” there is going to try to sell you on Life. Very shady.
Life Ionizer’s alkalinewaterionizerreviews.com DOES have an About Us page but no address or name. They just call themselves a “panel of experts with over 19 years experience.” How about calling yourselves what you really are — a panel of con artists who have no issues lying to and manipulating the American consumer!
Not to be outdone by Tyent or Life, Alkaviva owns waterionizersreviewed.com . This fake water ionizer review website follows the same pattern as Tyent and Life but at least on the About Us page they acknowledge that their review website is owned and operated by Alkaviva dealers. But, does that make it okay? No! Because, unless you click on the About Us page, you are given the impression that the reviews are conducted by some legitimate, third party source like Consumer Reports, not by a group of salesmen. It’s still manipulation.
Bawell Water Ionizers has their own fake water ionizer consumer reports site and so does Chanson. It seems that Water for Life USA, distributors for EOS water ionizers, is the only major US water ionizer distributor that does not operate a fake water ionizer review website. Why? Because we believe in earning business with an honest and straightforward presentation of our products and business, not by manipulating the consumer away from our competitors.
In Search of a Legitimate Water Ionizer Consumer Reports
If there are any legitimate third-party, non-profit laboratories out there, the water ionizer marketplace is in desperate need of fair evaluation. It is not right for the American consumer to have to wade through all of these lies. We would like to see a legitimate labortory set up a list of standards for all water ionizers to be evaluated by and then give an endorsement or stamp of approval to the water ionizers that pass the tests for those standards.
Until that happens, the best the American consumer can do weight the facts about existing water ionizer distributors. The biggest problem, as we just discovered, is that most of them lie. Their water ionizers might be decent, but the companies that distribute those water ionizers do not embody the values that most American’s come to expect from the businesses that they purchase from. This fact has held back the water ionizer marketplace for years! And who ultimately loses? The American consumer who ends up not purchasing a water ionizer because they can’t get straightforward answers to their questions.
If you’re considering a water ionizer for you and your family, the first place you might want to look is the Better Business Bureau. Life Ionizers and Tyent USA have less than perfect scores. No big surprise there. Next, you probably want to evaluate the manufacturer of the water ionizer you’re considering because where and how it’s made is very important. Next, you’ll want to consider certifications to make sure that the water ionizer you’re considering is safe and legal to sell in the US (many aren’t!). Next, compare plate quality because some plates are thin and not made well. Next, consider filtration. And finally, compare warranties.
