On this website you'll find reviews and comparisons of most alkaline water ionizers on the market. My goal in creating this site was to try and educate people on (or perhaps I should say take the confusion out about) the difference between hundreds of alkaline water ionizers now appearing on the US market.
While the comparison chart below is a good place to start most of our readers have found the videos on the homepage and below to be very helpful in understanding the ins and outs of alkaline water ionizers .
1) Filter Replacement Cost. Every 9-12 months the filter in your article in water ionizer will need to be replaced. Many water ionizer
manufacturers overcharge for this filter in my opinion. Something to keep in mind when you're shopping as you'll have to pay this over and over.
2) Warranties. The Warranty terms and Guarantee terms are often reflections of quality and endurance. Be careful of "Pro-rated".This means that you usually end up paying money when it needs repair.
3) Quality. Without disassembling each Water Ionizer model
it's hard to determine exactly how well they are made. Taking other models apart is exactly what we've done 9to about 30 major brands) to get an idea of the quality (or lack of) in each component. Hopefully this site can help you read through the marketing materials and get educated enough to make a good decision. Look for certifications such as ETL, UL, or CE which can be
an important criteria determining quality - which is covered in detail below.
Several certification standards exist that determine quality of design and of electrical components:
UL Certified - Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (www.ul.com) is an independent lab that writes testing standards and tests products for safety and certifies them.
CE Certified - The European Commission describes the CE mark as a "passport" that allows manufacturers to circulate industrial products freely within the internal market of the EU. Most products covered by New Approach Directives can be self-certified by the manufacturer and do not require the intervention of an EU-authorized independent testing/certifying company (notified body).
ETL Certified - A product bearing the ETL Listed Mark is determined to have met the requirements of 200 prescribed product safety standards.
What I especially like about the ETL certification is the mark indicates that "the manufacturer's production site conforms to a range of compliance measures and is subject to periodic follow-up inspections to verify continued conformance".
The fact that most water ionizers are made in the Orient means that safety can be a issue, as their standards are much lower than ours.

When it comes to alkaline water ionizers the question most people ask is:
"Are any of the less expensive brands as good as the $4,500 brands?"
Just because the KangenTM water ionizer machine sells for $5,000 doesn't mean that you can't get a Water Ionizer that works just as well - and for much less money. Kangen is a high quality made machine (despite using older technology and not offering under counter ability). The high price tag factors in the Network Marketing Distributor commissions. At one point they were just about the only water ionizer available but today many companies are comparable in my opinion.
Several manufacturers wanting to break into the industry are bringing better technology and a lower price to the market, especially since the demand for Water Ionizers has grown in the U.S.
