Life Ionizer 7700 Review

Retail Price $2,497

Overview

The Life Ionizer 7700 model is a 7 plate model which, despite the $2,497 price tag can often be found online for less [For a discount the Life Ionizer can often be found HERE]

[2013 UPDATE - Some of the recent problems between the Better Business Bureau and the Life Ionizer Company has me more hesitant to recommend their products. I like many of their units but some of the Customer Complaints and misleading information coming from this company is cause for hesitation. Life has falsely claimed that they are AAA+ Members of the BBB yet the BBB website rates them as "F". I hope they clean all these things up].




Common Questions

Here's what people ask me about this model:

Q: Should I keep the flat plates or upgrade to the Mesh plates??

Keep the flat plates and save the money. While MESH allows more surface area (the claim is a 5% improvement in ORP or pH) it also requires more cleaning, descaling and (according to my technician) may require faster plate replacement than flat because the mesh creates more places for the contaminants to lodge. Stick with Flat plate- which is still the standard in the industry.

Is it worth the price? I think it's a bit high - given that there are comparative models available with the same performance and comparable technology.
