In the world there are certification standards which can help determine quality and performance of components found in water ionizers:
UL (Underwriters Laboratories - www.ul.com) - an independent lab which writes testing standards and also tests those products for safety and
certifies them. This is the most common and basic certification across all electrical devices sold in stores across the U.S.
CE Certified - This is the European Commission. It
describes the CE mark as a "passport" that allows manufacturers to
circulate industrial products freely within the internal market of the
EU. Most products can be
self-certified by the manufacturer and do not require the intervention
of an EU-authorized independent testing/certifying company (notified
body). In other words it is largely left up to the company.
ETL Certified - A product which has the ETL Listed Mark is determined to have met the requirements of more than 200 prescribed product safety standards. Most Water Ionizers have not passed these standards. Today stores like Target and Walmart are demanding more products be ETL Certified to guarantee safety and quality.
What I especially like about the ETL certification is:
1) The mark indicates
that "the manufacturer's production site conforms to a range of
compliance measures and is subject to periodic follow-up inspections to
verify continued conformance". This means the factories are checked regularly to maintain standards of ETL. This is very important for products made in the Orient.
2) The ETL labs goes through the machine and then give recommendations for improving the quality and durability which must be performed before passing certification.
3) The ETL guarantee that the claims and Specifications offered by the company match the actual performance of the device.

All in all I rank the Jupiter Melody Water Ionizers are one of the better values for a water ionizer . If you need additional help you can call 1-800-215-1689 at the top of the page and/or read the additional reviews via the menu to the left.
I would like to see the Meoldy upgraded with ETL Certification and Safe Plastics. Both are safety concerns - one for electrical safety the other for health safety.
