1) Filter replacement costs. Several areas to consider include the ongoing price of water ionizer replacement filters. Many manufacturers charge a lot, or should I say overcharge, for the "after purchase" replacements.
2) Warranty Terms. Warranty and guarantee terms are often reflections on the quality and durability of the brand you purchase. "Pro-rated" can often mean you have to pay to have it repaired.
3) Quality. Without taking each Water Ionizer apart it's hard to determine how well they are made (The purpose of this website!) but certification (ETL, UL, CE, etc.) is an important criteria you can use.
When it comes to comparing water ionizers, the price is probably the most important factor for people, and especially since they are expensive.
But just because the KangenTM machine (The Grandfather of all water ionizers) runs close to $5,000 doesn't mean that you can't get a Water Ionizer just as good for a lot less.
Kangen, while a quality made machine, has some of the older technology. You also have to factor in the Mulit-Level Distributor commissions into your price. While it is a quality machine, which at one point was the only water ionizer brand available, in more recent times there is more competition at better prices.
Some companies are developing even better technology at a lower price, especially because the interest in Water Ionizers have grown so much in the U.S.
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-of electrical components:
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.
