In my Jupiter Mavello Water Ionizer Review I'll try to cut to the chase. As you're probably discovering there is a large field of 5 and 7 plate water ionizers in this price range available now, and the Mavello (made by Jupiter) is no exception.
Mavello is a 5-plate water ionizer with a modest price. It has a good reputation, however there are several things I would like to see including a guarantee which is more than 1 year. This isn't necessarily a red flag, but a sign that this model is a bit behind the times when other companies are offering 3-5 years.
My review continues further down the page along with specifications, pros and cons and my final conclusion.
Because there are so many similarities amongst brands on the market you're probably wondering:
Are any of them really all that different?
Are the ones costing $2,000-$5000 as good as the $1,200 models?
Most water ionizers on the market are the same. However there are some newer technologies and some great models at lower prices. In the final analysis I look for distinctions that really matter which include:
1 - Price/Value Comparisons
2 - Safe Plastics
3 - Ease of use (skipping all the bells and whistles)
4 - Overall Quality (electrical components, plating, etc.)
5 - Replacement Filter Costs
6 - Ease of Hookup
7 - Feedback from Consumer and Expert Reviews
The one unique thing about the Mavello water ionizer is a new state-of-the-art UltraFilter which they claim is like filters used in kidney dialysis). This is a multi-stage, built-in filter that uses carbon, a space fiber, and tubular (hollow) membrane media for removal of chemicals and particles to 0.01 microns. However the importance of the filter is relative to what your water is like to begin with.
When it comes to the water filter - which comes before the water is ionizes - I often suggest people use a more complete system as the simple carbon filters don't do an adequate job with bacteria and some chemicals. especially if you're on city water. See the page on Source Water
While not unique it has 4 alkaline pH settings, 1 acidic setting, and a filter only setting which is pretty standard.
1 - Reasonable Priced
2 - Advanced pre-filter
3 - Easy to Use
1 - 1 Year Warranty
2 - Expensive Replacement Filters
3 - Not using safe plastics

The Mavello Ionizer Machine is pretty middle of the field and perhaps a bit expensive for a 5 plate model compared to the industry today. However its reputation is good and it would be a consideration.
