I’m finally able to…
Test and Compare the Athena Water Ionizer with Other Water Ionizers!
The Athena water ionizer has a tradition of winning in water ionizer comparison tests. However I have never tested it myself until today. Also to my knowledge the Athena water ionizer has never been tested against the Tyent Turbo water ionizer. So today I think I’m the first person showing publicly the testing of the Jupiter Athena water ionizer vs the Tyent Turbo! I thought it was important to test the Tyent water ionizer against the Athena first, because the Tyent Turbo has been up till now — the winner, in the ability to get the highest rH.
Previously the Tyent Turbo [in my own testing] has been also beating the KYK and the Melody in its ability to get the lowest acidity and the highest alkalinity [“the Extremes” …as I call it]…although the KYK and Melody come close. I personally don’t care about the extremes, but some people do. They want the ability to get the lowest acid possible or the highest alkaline possible.
What I care about and think is the most important thing to look for in a water ionizer is the Level 3 “drinking water” rH. The rH is a measure of the “relative Hydrogen” of the ionized water and is showing you how high of an ORP is that ionizer able to give you relative to the pH level of the water tested. [see below for a more scientific explanation] The rH is better for you when the number is lower, or the closer to zero – the better [on a scale of 0 to 42].
This three-part series of videos starts at level 3 in the first video and then Level 4 for the Athena and the “Turbo Level” for the Tyent is demonstrated in videos 2 and 3. Here are the videos:
The following chart shows the pH, ORP, rH and acid output for the Athena water ionizer at Level 3/4 and the Tyent water ionizer at Level 3 and Turbo levels.

Another thing to consider in comparing water ionizers is the internal self-cleaning systems. The Athena’s self-cleaning is about three or four times better than the Tyent. It is all automatic and back-end [meaning that you never have to wait while your Athena water ionizer is doing a self-cleaning cycle. This is described in further detail in other blog posts, but the bottom line is that the self-cleaning system is a very important feature to look at in a water ionizer. Even the tiniest little film of calcium on the plates will cause a drop in the water ionizer’s ability to put out a good pH and ORP. Therefore if you can keep the plates squeaky-clean you will get the best, healthiest water consistently for the life of your water ionizer!
Here is my analysis of todays water ionizer comparisons [as seen in the above videos and chart]:
The Athena beats the Tyent Turbo in…
- rH [relative Hydrogen]…which is the overall healthiness of the alkaline ionized water, basically. However, the Athena and Tyent are very close and so the Athena didn’t beat by much.
- the warranty — the Athena has a Lifetime warranty standard with every water ionizer purchase [you don’t have to pay extra] vs the Tyent with a 20-year [plates] and 10-year extended warranty that you can purchase.
- the price — the Athena costs $2095.00 and the Tyent Turbo [with 10-year extended warranty] costs $2495 + 195 = $2690.00. [Keep in mind, though that you get some free gifts with the Tyent purchase worth about $300.00]…but even with the free gifts, the Athena still wins.
The Tyent Turbo beats the Athena in the following…
- ability to produce the lower acid output at both levels 3 and Turbo-level. This is significant if what you want is a water ionizer that can do this. The acid water at the lowest setting for the Tyent is still not low enough [in this test] to kill germs — I don’t think. [I do plan to test this sometime]. What I have heard is that the acidity needs to be around 2.5 pH to kill germs [or at least under 3]…but I won’t know this for sure until I test it.
- the ability to produce a higher alkalinity. This is only slightly higher though…almost equal. Both water ionizers appeared to be producing a high enough alkalinity to emulsify oils [which will be the subject of another test.
