UNDER SINK COMES OF AGE...
The Life Ionizer 7000 features an above the counter faucet and an under the counter main body to provide more counter space. It is a small volume machine (and a bit pricey for that) but will handle the average families needs.
A comparable model that doesn't include the above counter electronics and faucet would probably cost about $1400 so you have to consider whether the effort of installation and extra expense is worth the cost. If you have a small counter, or aesthetics are important, then it probably is.
1. Platinum titanium Plates
2. 5 Year Warranty
3. One touch counter top controls
4. Dual facuet for acid and alkaline
1. A little pricey for a small unit like this - even though you get under counter convenience.
2. The unit and Faucet have an inexpensive feel
3. Small production of ionized water
4. 5 plate technology has a limited range
ABOUT UNDER COUNTER DESIGN - There are 2 designs to under counter ionizers:
1) Acid/Alkaline Controls. Rather than being inside the machine the controls for acid and alkaline (usually on the front panel as most water ionizers are) are on the dual faucet. This is the method the 7000 uses.
2) Water Only Controls. Much less expensive are the under counter ionizers that skip the acid alkaline
controls on the faucet and use a water on/off valve to control the electronics inside the machine. Some of these models allow the additional under the counter later, as an addon.
The 7000 is one of the early under counter models and the electronics are fairly simple. Unlike the second method above it is under counter only.

UPDATE; BECAUSE THE Life Ionizer 7000 IS NO LONGER BEING MADE MY SUGGESTION IS TO LOOK AT SOME OF THE OTHER UNDER SINK MODELS AVAILABLE.
