Tyent MMP 7070 Review

Retail Price $1,195


Overview

UPDATE: The new Tyent Mmp 7070 has been discontinued in favor of the MMP 7070 Turbo model which boasts a broader pH range which comes as the result of a variable Wattage power supply.

The 7070 was an affordable, quality, easy to use ionizer which certainly held a good reputation in the field. It is no longer available. So the question becomes:

Q: Is Turbo worth the price difference? and

Q: Are there still ionizers in the price range of the original that can get the job done?

Higher Price for the Turbo

The fact that the Tyent MMP 7070 model came in at $1,995 certainly meant it was in a more affordable price range.

Q: Is Turbo worth the difference?

A: Since the pH range for alkaline should not exceed 9.5 for drinking the range of 12 by the Turbo is probably unnecessary (or overkill). And since there are other comparable models at lower prices I'm not convinced that the price difference is worth it to the consumer.


Pros and Cons

PROS

1. 7 Plates

2. Quality Made in Korea

3. Reasonable price

NOTES: Installation was very easy. i especially liked that the hoses connect in the back and use quick connect couplings which removes the need for clamps or pliers.

CONS

1. Lower pH range than some models nearly the same price

2. Does not have FDA safe plastics*

3. A 15% return restocking fee for returns = $434

* FDA Safe plastics assure that the chemicals which appear in most plastics are non-existant. These chemicals mimic hormones and can cause breast, prostate and other hormonally sensitive tissues in the body (according to the World Health organization and many Cancer Specialists) to absorb toxins which can lead to cellular abnormalities.

Conclusion


I'm sorry to see that the Tyent MMP 7070 has been replaced by the Turbo version. I considered it a good, quality water ionizer with a relatively good track record in the industry at a reasonable price.

Warranty on the older 7070 models - The warranty is now 10 years, whereas their newer models have a greater lifetime warranty now in place.


Price: I'm not sure if you can find any Distributors with the older version but if Tyent still honors the service of them it may be an opportunity for some savings. My opinion is that for the price there are several comparable water ionizer units for less money.
