Jupiter Ionizers comprise of 5 different alkaline water ionizer models ranging from $1,200 to $2695.00 for their under-counter model.
In this review we'll be reviewing their popular Jupiter Melody Ionizer, including specifications as well as pros and cons. I've been compiling reviews on this model from around the internet and these will be posted and distilled into my conclusion shortly.
Jupiter Ionizers are manufactured in Korea by a company called EmcoTech, and distributed in the US by Alka Viva formerly known as Ionways, a Network Marketing Company.
Their home office is in Goyang City just outside of Seoul, South Korea. Manufacturing plant is in Bucheon Gyeonggi-do, South Korea. Although some parts are made elsewhere.

While most people will opt for a 7 plate model the Jupiter Melody is a good mid-range water ionizer, quality made with a good track record. The price is fair. I don't like the added chemical aspect of this unit (or any for that matter) to create the desired range. I'd rather have a model that can achieve this without the chemicals.
Jupiter has been in the industry for quite some time, and made in Korea generally means quality. The MLM aspect raises the price over what other comparable units might cost so you may consider doing some shopping, although you won't go wrong with this unit.
Like many other brands, in fact most brands, I hope they consider using safe plastics for parts that carry water. Plastics can affect hormones in the body and can harm infants according to the World Health organization. It's a big concern and some experts believe it accounts for some of the health problems that are on the rise.
