Below you'll find a water ionizer comparison chart along with an important educational video which points out some of the problems in the industry.
1) Unsafe Plastics Used In Asia. As the video revealed most water ionizers are using unsafe plastics.
2) Filter replacements. Most water ionizer manufacturers charge too much for their replacement filters. This "after purchase" replacement can cost you more over time.
3) Warranty vs. Guarantee. The
Guarantee is different from the warranty. The guarantee is usually the satisfaction return policy of 30-60 days, often called the
satisfaction guarantee. The Warranty is the longterm policy and can
reflect the quality and durability of the ionizer brand. Be sure to read
the terms when it says "Pro-rated". These often mean paying more money
when or if it needs repair. The ideal is lifetime or limited lifetime. But you need to read the terms.
4) Quality. When we
dissasemble the Water Ionizers we review to look at components and power supplies we also look for certifications such as ETL, UL, or CE
as important criteria for determining quality and longevity. Most important is testing the components for durability, and testing ionizer plates to determine whether the voltage across the plate is consistent to produce proper ionization.
