Cheapest Water Ionizers | Comparison
Posted by Water Ionizer Expert on December 11, 2014 0 Comments
The two cheapest water ionizers on the market today are the LIFE Ionizers Fuzion for $897 and The Aqua Ionizer Deluxe 7.0 for $895. While these machines are separated by only two dollars in price, they are completely different in how they work. The LIFE Fuzion is designed to travel. You can use it in either of two ways: Pour water into the top like a coffee maker, or connect it to the sink like a conventional water ionizer. The Aqua Ionizer Deluxe is a countertop ionizer, so it has to be connected to the sink.
LIFE Ionizers Fuzion
The LIFE Fuzion is a four plate machine that makes alkaline water with a pH of up to 10.0, depending on the water you use in it, with an antioxidant ORP of up to -500. When used as a travel ionizer, it makes .8 liters of alkaline water and. .45 liters of acidic water per batch. The Fuzion has 200 Watts of power and comes with a 5 year warranty on parts and labor. It is a high quality machine designed and manufactured in South Korea.
If you connect it to the sink, we recommend you use a pre-filter system, which you can get from LIFE Ionizers as an option with your Fuzion. Once connected to the sink, the Fuzion works like any other ionizer. LIFE Ionizers has a powerful composite filter called the LIFE Super Filter, which we recommend with this machine. The Super Filter tackles a wider range of contaminants than any other filter on the market today.
Aqua Ionizer Deluxe 7.0
The Aqua Ionizer Deluxe 7.0 is a seven plate machine, but we must note that the plates on the Aqua Ionizer Deluxe are not coated with platinum:
Warning: If you drink water from this machine, you may be drinking titanium oxide-laced water.
The Aqua Ionizer Deluxe has only 45 Watts of power, which is too low. We tested it and found that this machine simply does not work. In our testing, this machine only raised the pH of our water slightly, from 7.65 to 8.4. The water had a positive 220 ORP, which was about the same as our tap water - oxidative and unhealthy. The Aqua Ionizer Deluxe does not make healthy water. This machine is made in China and Certified lab tests show it creates water with a high lead content - significantly higher than the highest EPA allowable levels. Dangerous levels of lead poisoning can cause major health problems.
Best Cheap Water Ionizer: LIFE Fuzion
The hands down winner in this comparison is the LIFE Fuzion. The Fuzion raises the pH of your water to healthy levels, and imbues it with antioxidant potential. Plus you get the convenience and flexibility of the Fuzion’s go anywhere design. We recommend getting the optional pre-filter system so you have the flexibility of using the Fuzion as a countertop ionizer when you’re not traveling.
The Aqua Ionizer Deluxe doesn’t work, 45 Watts isn’t enough power to have any effect on the water at all. We urge you to avoid this, and any machine that doesn’t have platinum coated plates. It’s not safe to drink the water from an ionizer with uncoated plates. Plus it emits high levels of lead into the water.
