Asked Questions About Ionizers
How do I evaluate
and select from the different Water Ionizers that are available?
There are two major
criteria to use in evaluating water ionizers:
The first is the filtration
provided by the water ionizer filter. A standard filter uses
a 1.0 micron filter. Some filters use 0.03 microns. The UltraFilter
has a 0.01 micron filter.
The second criteria
to apply is how the unit will be connected to the water supply
in your home or office.
- Some units allow direct
connection to the kitchen faucet by the provided diverter valve,
- Some connect directly
to the cold water line under the sink by the provided T-valve,
- Some place the entire
unit under the sink with an optional undersink adaptor kit.
Determine which method
you prefer and examine those units that will provide you with
When do I
replace the filter?
All quality water ionizers
have Filter Counter Displays. When it reaches a designated number,
the filter needs to be replaced, usually in 9-12 months. Your
instruction manual will give you this information.
Can I use
a water ionizer with a reverse osmosis unit or a water softener?
Some Water Ionizers
(Isis/Melody and Athena and Delphi and Venus) can be used with
RO when the filter which comes with the machine is removed and
replaced by the Re-mineralizing cartridge. Remineralized water
can then be used by the ionizer to produce alkaline water.
Water softeners have
extremely high levels of sodium or potassium that can damage
the water ionizer unit.
You will need to hook
up your water ionizer to a line that is not connected to a water
softener or a reverse osmosis unit.
Will I need
to use a calcium cartridge with my water ionizer to increase
Usually not. In most
areas the metropolitan water will have a neutral pH or be slightly
acidic or alkaline. Only those areas which have especially acidic
water will need calcium cartridges to increase alkalinity to
a proper level. Calcium cartridges last approximately 2-3 months
an are inexpensive.
What is the
ideal water pH that I should use on a daily basis?
The ideal water pH produced
by a water ionizer should be in the 8.5 to 9 range. Higher levels
can be used for short periods of time for detoxification.
What are the
major characteristics of the water produced by a water ionizer?
2) Micro-clustered water
for improved absorption and hydration
3) Negative ORP (Oxidation
Reduction Potential) - free radical scavenger.
4) High levels of oxygen
