There's a reason why the Emotech Water Ionizers have not become a popular Water Ionizer Model - it's because they don't really make it.
Initially I was excited by the idea of a major Korean Company being involved, however it's really the Alka Viva formerly known as Ionways Water Ionizer Company (an MLM or network marketing company) who merely arranged for some of the S***** designers to assist in the design for Emotech - the makers of these units. I don't know what compensation S**** receives or received for the use of their name. Of course this isn't uncommon anymore for a Company to lend their name in exchange for a % of sales.
We'll take a closer look at the workings of the Machine in this Review of the Emotech Water Ionizers Vesta model.
When I saw that it used 9 plates I thought "Oh no, here we go! People are going to think that the more plates the better". Such is not the case however as the number of plates do not determine the results but rather that 1) you have enough surface area and 2) that the power supply is consistent.
1. 9 Plates of Titanium/Platinum (quality)
2. Limited Lifetime Warranty
3. Good Biostone Filtration for Tap water purification
4. Good quality Machine
1. Very Expensive (MLM Markup)
2. Since you never want to drink alkaline water over a pH of 9.9 the 9 plates are more about marketing than anything. 7 plate.
(We are currently testing this model)

It's a well made unit. The emotech Water Ionizers are going to be a good test of the market - to see if people are ready to spend over $3,000 for a Water Ionizer. That's a price in "rarified air" since it gets close to only the Kangen ionizer price which is a whopping $4,200.00 new.
Since more Water Ionizers with comparable quality to Kangen are showing up on the market it is more likely that you will see water ionizers coming down in price while improving in quality and technology.
