Comparing water ionizers & water filters

some water ionizers comparisons were made ​​by independent government laboratories Silver State Laboratories, U.S. EPA certified laboratories (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency) based on tests conducted on the multiple water filtration – ionization devices.


only focusing on pH, ORP and the size of the electrodes IS A MISTAKE .

There is so much more to consider when deciding which water ionizer is a better choice for your personal needs – click; important differences are in water filtration power, technology , sophistication & design(i.e.:SMART electrodes & DARC II electrode cleaning systems,AutoAdjust optimal performance with low power ), manufacturing quality and durability of water ionizer.

Here is the logical way — the informed way — to compare water ionizers:
Water ionizer filtration-first you need ultraclean mineral rich water. did you know that some water contaminants can become worst after water ionization/electrolisys?
Manufacturer of water ionizers
How long have they been in business? Can you locate or verify them?
What type of certifications do water ionizers manufacturers  hold? Are they an assembler or manufacturer?
What is the track record of the product in the United States?

We want you to know:

The ability to produce high concentrations of molecular hydrogen at a pH of around 9.5 is probably the most important thing to consider when choosing a water ionizer.


compare AlkaViva H2 water ionizers & purifiers(2 filters)

The market focus for water ionizers is now on diatomic molecular hydrogen H2 water infusion/generation  performance.
The water cell – the heart and engine of the water ionizer – has two components: electrodes and (ion exchange) membranes.
Diatomic molecular hydrogen- Hwater Infusion Technology is based on the fact that water ionization cell membranes are as critical as the electrodes.

AlkaViva water ionization cell membranes are made in-house(NOT from outside sources) and are ultrasonically pressed, rather than bonded with chemicals. This provides you with a distinctly superior water ionization cell membrane that is designed to work specifically with AlkaViva SMART DESIGN electrodes, giving unmatched water ionization performance.

When you put together AlkaViva advanced SmartDesign electrodes to AlkaViva ultrasonically pressed  water ionization cell membranes, the result is a great level of diatomic molecular hydrogen H2 dizolved in water

Technology and better diatomic molecular hydrogen  H2 performance(meaning more molecular hydrogen H2 dizolved in ionized alkaline water). This is especially so at the better tasting lower levels of pH(7 up to 10)

The new Alkaviva H2 water ionizers use the latest technologies(SMPS & AutoAdjust,SMART electrodesDARC II electrode autoclean, RealTime water flow control , H2 infusion Technology)  available  built upon more than 30 years of manufacturing experience that is more efficient and durable ensuring a long electrode / plate life and water ionizer life.  some  current water ionizers use outdated technology requiring larger electrode plates to perform adequately which degrade over time and require excessive electrical power to operate/ionize water (witch may lead to faults). ALKAVIVA has SMART electrodes as well as top electrode membranes  for top water ionization performance,

ALKAVIVA provides water quality issues support as well for top water ionization performance over time and a durable water ionizer

Alkaviva have dedicated extensive research into developing not only the best water ionizers but the best water filtration technology – Ultrawater. some water ionizers use cheap carbon and vitamin C water filters that do a poor job of filtering many common impurities such as fluoride, chlorine, hormones, VOC’s and heavy metals. Ultrawater filters have been tested and certified by EPA governmental lab  to removes all impurities by up to 99.9%.

Unfortunately there is a considerable amount of false claims and inaccuracies made on some water Ionizer manufacturer’s websites about the water ionization performance of their water ionizers versus other brands. We have been selling Alkaviva products for over 23 years and know the water filtration & ionization performance of the AlkaViva water ionizers  are TOP

In terms of reliability, water ionization performance, the 2016 Alkaviva H2 water ionizers are the TOP water ionizers for sale in the world.

Foot Note: Comparing Transformers to SMPS Power Supply Systems.

A switched-mode power supply (also called SMPS) is an electronic power supply unit which differs from the more common linear, transformer type power supply. Each type has advantages and disadvantages. For example, while the SMPS power supply is lighter weight and typically less expensive to manufacture, it has been shown to respond more slowly and be less stable overall than the Transformer system. One clear advantage of SMPS has nothing to do with its electrical performance and this is that its lighter weight results in lower shipping costs.

While some water ionizer manufacturers choose to employ SMPS for use in water ionizers, comparative research by Emco Tech into specific water ionization applications indicates an overall lack of stability and long-term reliability in the systems currently available. Following are the comparative results of EmcoTech’s research on SMPS versus Transformer power supplies in water ionizers, in a residential setting:

Much has been made in the internet marketing for water ionizers using SMPS. One example would be that SMPS can adjust the water ionizer’s performance to your water quality. Technically this would require an extremely fast power supply response time. Based on Emco’s research you can see that SMPS does not produce. While SMPS is employed in some electronics due to the weight and cost advantage, transformers remain the most prevalent, durable and most stable power system in home electronics. EmcoTech utilizes a transformer based platform in order to assure stable, long term and consistent power supply – and reliability for every customer.

Don’t just Buy the Advertised Features – Buy the Real Value!

We want you to make an educated choice and have assembled essential information to help you determine the best water ionizer for your budget and needs.


AlkaViva understands there are quite a few competitors in the marketplace and important differences between the various brands of water ionizers.

Unfortunately, tricky marketing and questionable sales tactics are often used to avoid answering important questions such as who is behind the water ionizer you buy and how reliable and proven will your water ionizer be.

The charts in this article show technical and basic differences between multiple brands of water ionizers and between water ionizers in as unbiased a manner as possible. It may not be as “interesting” to read as on other sites, but hopefully will provide you with essential and accurate information.

Comments/ Helpful Advice

The details in the charts are accurate to the best of AlkaViva knowledge.

For more information on any brand please CONTACT US

1. There are a few very misleading water ionizers comparison sites now on the internet. These are not true comparison sites but sites put up by an importer to make sales by showing dishonest or misleading information.

It pays to check the “facts” and talk with internet dealers that sell many brands for their opinion of what is best and the most reliable. AlkaViva tries to hold a high ground, but will provide independent comparison test results from a truly Independent Laboratory upon request.


2. Copy models from China/Taiwan are beginning to show up in the USA and EU.

Be careful of products that have not been made for the USA or EU market and have no track record here.

These models can disappear as quickly as they have appeared, leaving customers without any backup service, filters or parts.

we have been around for more than 23 years

3. AlkaViva water ionizers are still some of the few water ionizers to always give alkaline water (even when cleaning electrodes). This patented system means that there is no waiting, no risk of drinking acid water by mistake and also means that scale build up on the plates is minimized -> ALWAYS TOP water ionization PERFORMANCE & INCREASED DURABILITY.

4. ** Most water ionizer units use only genuine Platinum Titanium. This is because Platinum is by far the most effective and stable element for water ionization.

Some models made in Taiwan(i.e:CHANSON) are using Platinoiridium or Platinum mixed with Iridium. They don’t use platinum titanium because platinum titanium is 7 times more expensive than iridium. The Japanese and Korean governments do not allow any company to sell iridium for drinking water applications because it is bad for your health. The EP units made for the US market do not use iridium while the same models in Taiwan/China do use iridium.

Also there are new models on the market using ‘white gold’ for their plating. This is very misleading as there is no such thing as “white gold” since gold is always yellow. “White gold”, in fact, is actually an amalgam and contains at least 62% silver and other minerals. Platinum is about $1250 an ounce while Silver is about $12 an ounce. Obviously all the Japanese manufacturers and Jupiter Science etc would use “white gold” if it was any good.

Some companies use cheap electrodes/plates that are dipped in iridium instead of been baked which is a more expensive and effective method.

more about water ionizers electrodes 

5. A few manufactures make a lot of profit from replacement filters.

While most brands have reasonable water filter prices there are some that don’t. But regardless why buy an water ionizer if the water filter does not remove most of the contaminants in the water?

We now offer for FREE our ULTRAWATER filters, in addition to the standard factory water filters, that will remove ALL known water contaminants (including Chlorine, chloramine, Fluorides, pharmaceuticals, nitrates, etc) with an OUTSTANDING 99.9% accuracy -lab testing proof available

Ultrawater offers the BEST possible water filtration from ALL known water contaminats with an outstanding precision of 99.9% , including chlorine, chloramines nitrates, fluoride ,  etc), but WITH healthy, natural minerals to pass (we even remineralize water)(as opposed to dangerous distilled & purified water (i.e.Reverse Osmosis) our water is a fountain of HEALTH, detoxifying your body without depleting it from essential minerals

6.Don’t be fooled by  thinking “bigger, is better”.

With electronics quite the opposite is true (consider how the radio, camera, computer and TV have evolved). Effective conductivity is the primary determinant – NOT electrode size – of effective delivery of voltage into the water needed to create electrolysis. The larger electrodes draw 3-4 times more power DECREASING the electrode life with NO additional benefit to the water quality. See our report on “Why Bigger is Not Better” Here

Generally the larger electrodes have poorer conductivity due to inferior plating processes or the grade of materials, so they have to be larger.

Similar things  can be said about extreme pH or ORP values

As opposed to other brands that focus on producing wide range of pH & ORP, though ALL our water ionizers can and will produce ionized water with wide range of pH & ORPALL our water ionizers are designed to optimally ionize your water – with a unique history of over 30 years research and experience , collaborations with hospitals , medical centers, specialists and researchers,we think that what nature creates should be a reference point .NATURALLY occurring alkaline and ionized water is NOT generally over pH 9 nor does it have artificially high – ORP. We know – we went to Vilcabamba, Ecuador to meet with the people in the Valley of Longevity and tested their water. If interested, please ask for our FREE DVD on this trip contact us or leave your mail address( we will not share it with anyone)

Experts do NOT recommend drinking water over pH 9.5 -such as Dr. Theodore Baroody (author Alkalize or Die), Dr. Robert O. Young (The pH Miracle), Sang Wang (Reverse Aging) and the Korean FDA plus Japanese Ministry of Health.

7. When looking at what brand to buy look also at the level and quality of ongoing support you will be getting.

This point can not be emphasized enough. In the last  years alone, approximately 8 new water ionizers manufacturers have come and gone in the market

With AlkaViva you buy with absolute certainty that your company will be around to support you – long after the other Johnny-come-latelys have left some people high and dry.
We will be there for any ongoing support.0

8. By US tested we mean that the company have been selling in the USA for at least one year. It takes a number of years to show that a water ionizer is reliable (less to show it is not).

9. We do NOT recommend models that use UV lighting as a means for moving bacteria or viruses. UV light has to shine through a clear surface but in time these surfaces tend to become opaque or dirty (especially where there is hard water). Also the UV bulb may stop working and UV light may not work well with fast water flow. In comparison anti-bacterial filters will always work at optimum strength as long as they are replaced in time. All water ionizers that use water filters have a water filter counter inbuilt.

10. inbuilt ORP meters. Although a good idea this is still only at this stage gimmickry. It is very hard to get an accurate ORP reading and an ORP meter needs to regularly recalibrated and cleaned (since its points quickly get oxidized). In our tests using water ionizers with inbuilt ORP we found that the readings were very inaccurate and misleading when compared to the results from a proper ORP meter.

Emco Tech (Jupiter Science) water ionizers have been sold in the USA since 1995 and recently the great success of AlkaViva/ IonWays/Ionlife as the industry leader, has resulted in many new water ionizers

Because new players have little to lose and possibly a lot to gain it is very tempting to put up a good looking site that compare water ionizers, then manipulate, cover-up or not reveal facts and figures to fool the unwary.

AlkaViva has been, and is, happy to let our customers and dealers speak for themselves.

But there comes a time when it is necessary to get involved on another level.

As an example of what is NOT a true, independent site, comparing water ionizers, please go to

Is it obvious who put up this site and for what purpose?

Are you told this is not an unbiased compare water ionizer site (it is owned and run by Life Ionizers)?

And why are the only links on the home page to Gold Fox (a non-competing low end model) and Kangen (a not for retail/wholesale MLM company)?

Next click on the link that goes to the comparison chart.

Did you expect or hope that the information here would be unbiased and accurate?

And do you see here that Life Ionizers has changed “manufacturer” three times since 2007?

Now please click on the “Independent” Comparison Lab Tests button

These compare water ionizer tests were apparently run on hard water (where the pH is high to start with) and apparently show the Athena hardly able to change the pH at all, unlike the Life Ionizer unit that gets an impressive 10.9 pH.

Well, we know these results are not true because:

  • The Athena  JS 205 water ionizer  is our top selling water ionizer and in government certified tests shows it outperforming other brands -See EPA-certified-Lab-Report-water-ionizers – CLICK HERE.
  • AlkaViva would not be in business as the leading water ionizing company with over 600 dealers in USA plus Agents in about 28 other countries if we did not get great results in pH, ORP and reliability. We know AlkaViva water ionizers compare well to any other brand and with the patented DARC cleaning system we know our water ionizers will keep performing like new for many years after others have failed due to scale buildup and breakdown of the plates etc.
  • The person in the white coat was employed by Life Ionizer in 2008 as a salesman and was employed with no experience in water ionization and with no scientific qualification.
  •  Do a web search for dealers that sell Emco Tech models AND other models.  Ask them what they think of Emco Tech and what results they have achieved.

Now read on … this gets interesting!

So, on July 22, 2008, we decided to call Aquatic Consulting & Testing Inc to see how these test results that compare water ionizers were obtained. The technician, we spoke to, knew about the water ionizer tests and told us that he was never sent any water ionizers!.

Instead what he was sent were water samples in the mail, by a dealer of Life Ionizers, with the name of the water ionizers on the outside!!! He did what he was asked to do and now what you see is what Life Ionizers wants you to see.

Another example of a bogus compare water ionizer site is  All the “information” on this site was put up by the importer selling the unit. The guy in the video was Rob Gray of Tyent. And guess which unit “appeared” to perform the best?

Please notice

a) how the “tests” are performed with completely un-credible and non-scientific methods and protocols and

b) how answers to obvious questions are ignored such as, “How old is the unit?”, “What was the water source?”, “What levels are used in testing?” and “What type of meters are used and are they cleaned and calibrated?” Etc.

Also these compare water ionizer sites ignore a very important issue; who are you buying from?

AlkaViva has been selling water ionizers into the US market longer than any other company (18+ years). We provide better service, more post sale tools like installation and user DVDs, and have excellent customer service and manuals. We have already been and will continue to be around a lot longer than our competition.

Let’s shift the conversation about comparisons to include ALL the salient questions. AlkaViva water ionizers perform extremely well and will continue to, long after others have built up tremendous scaling, and we provide the best certainty and service.

So when you look at videos that show a man in a white lab coat testing water ionizers or see performance charts or read about this company being the biggest and best then please ask questions and check around. We will happily provide evidence to back up everything we say on our site.
