Ange Alkaline Water Ionizer


The Ange Alkaline water ionizer was a development of Nippon Intek Co.based in Japan. Intek is still in the business.

[2012 Update - My informants and several Distributors tell me that it is no longer for sale in the U.S. I'e noticed them on sale on Ebay on Occasion for under $500.00...]

The Ange Model AW-960 was a popular one in Japan, which had made ionization more available for the masses. It used the popular silver and carbon combination now found on most water ionizers.

It was one of the early Water Ionizers not named Kangentm and hence teh price in Japan was less (as it was in the U.S.)

Since this model is not available anymore (although you can still get the replacement filters) there is not any support for repairs that I can see. My recommendation, if you find one used or on Ebay as I have seen, is to look at some of the newer technology models via the comparison charts and videos on this website...
