[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].
Here's what people ask me about this model:
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.
1. 7 Platinum Titanium Plates
2. Well Designed
4. Dual Filters
5. Too expensive (as other comparable brands are available for less)
1. Lifetime Warranty is on parts (not labor). This means you'll pay for repairs at their price.
2. Price is a bit high as there are comparable models on the market to this model
3. Expensive Replacement Filters ($130)
