Posted by Water Ionizer Expert on March 30, 2016 0 Comments
The LIFE M-13 is LIFE’s ultimate top-of-the-line water ionizer. This machine has 13 plates and more plate surface area than any other ionizer, it can adjust up to 800 Watts of power. All those plates and power mean that this machine can compete with ionizers that cost thousands more - and win. The M-13 has the highest flow rate of any ionizer we’ve ever tested, and it’s pH and antioxidant levels are off the charts. We rate this machine as best in the market, you simply can’t find a water ionizer with optimized health benefits like the Life M13.
pH and ORP tests over time
The M-13 gives incredible pH and antioxidant ORP performance. In our ionizer testing lab, we got a pH range of 2.1 to 12.0, which is the best we’ve ever seen. The machine’s antioxidant performance is similarly incredible, we got to an antioxidant ORP level of -878, which is also the highest we’ve ever seen. Thanks to LIFE’s patent-pending RADC self-cleaning system, the pH and ORP levels we got after 6 months of use were pretty close to original. the pH range was 2.3 to 11.7, and the antioxidant ORP level was -865.
Thanks to the combination of large plates and high power, this machine gives you the highest antioxidant ORP at pH levels that are recommended for daily drinking by health experts. Alkaline health experts recommend alkaline drinking water with a pH range of 8.5 - 9.5 for daily use. Other machine may reach these antioxidant levels, but usually only at pH levels that are too high for daily use.
Our ruling: Pass. If you are looking for strong pH performance to tackle the toughest body acidity challenges, and outstanding antioxidant ORP performance to fight harmful age-causing oxidation, look no further, the M-13 is the best.
Toxins filtered out
The LIFE M-13 comes with LIFE’s ultimate custom filtration system. LIFE Ionizers will analyze your local water quality report and find out which toxins are in your water. They will then customize your filtration system so you have the right filters to address them. LIFE is the only ionizer company that makes sure you get the right filters for your water quality.
Our ruling: Pass LIFE Ionizer’s filtration is the best in the water ionizer industry. If you want the best protection from toxins in your water, get a LIFE.
Quality of components
The LIFE M-13 is certified lead free by the Water Quality Association, and uses 100% BPA free plastics. It has an 800 Watt SMPS power supply which saves energy and produces a ton of power. The plates in our M-13 are LIFE’s new GRID plates, which are drop-forged and much sturdier than the plates in competing ionizers. LIFE Ionizers are convertible, so you can use them countertop or undercounter with LIFE’s optional faucet kit. The faucet is solid stainless steel, which we really like. Many competing brands have cheap plastic faucets that break. The M-13 is a heavy duty machine that we expect will easily last a lifetime.

Maintenance: Is it easy, effective?
The LIFE M-13 is equipped with LIFE’s patent-pending RADC cleaning system which works in the background to keep the machine clean. The only maintenance you have to do on a LIFE Ionizer is filter changes. At filter change, you run a cleaning cartridge to give your ionizer a deep cleaning, and that’s it! That’s really all you need to do to get a lifetime of top performance from a LIFE Ionizer.
