plastic parts in water ionizers

We are told not to drink from plastic bottles as some of the chemicals can leach out into the water - yet all these machines seem to have plastic parts! Are there any products that are made with stainless steel?

Hi Karen. None with just stainless steel. However if the hoses are BPA free (as with FDA safe plastic hoses) there isn't anything leeching into the water of consequence. It's the hormone affecting chemicals that are of the greatest concern. In the Orient they don't really have the awareness of this as we do in the U.S.
