Water Ionizer Face-Off #4: Enagic SD501 $3800. Water vs. Jupiter Athena Water Ionizers

Posted by Alkaline Water Plus on

Today I had the pleasure to test two great water ionizers, the Enagic $3800 Water ionizer [the SD 501] and the Jupiter Athena water ionizer.

The results were close, but the Athena was a bit better in levels 2 and 3 [which I feel are the most important levels, because they are the levels that most people drink at].

The Athena has a better design than the Enagic — more sophisticated and efficiently designed. Jupiter Athena is Jupiter’s highest-end water ionizer. It is a tried-and-true water ionizer design, that has been around for many years. It has come out top in many water ionizer comparison tests, including the ones done by Silver State Labs [an independent certified lab]. The filtration in the Athena is exceptional along with the internal self-cleaning system, called the DARC [double automatic reverse cleaning] cleaning system. The Athena also has a better warranty than the Enagic’s 5-Year Warranty.

Here are the videos, chart, and commentaries for today’s water ionizer comparisons:

10/29/ Enagic/Athena-1 Enagic Athena
Level 1  pH/ORP

10.5/-780  Better


Level 2   pH/ORP/rH

11 /-805 / 1.83

10.4 /-710 / 3.8 Better because the water’s more drinkable

Level  3   pH/ORP/rH

11.3 / -825 / 1.77

11.1 / -817 / 1.63 [Tiny bit better]

Level 4   pH

11.4  Better [for emulsifying oils]


Acid   pH


2.5  Better [for killing germs faster]

Here are my comments about today’s water ionizer comparisons:

  • Enagic’s results at level 1 were higher, but the pH was too high for most people starting in at drinking ionized water.
  • The Athena’s ORP at level 2 was almost as good as the Enagic’s but with a far more drinkable pH. Same for level 3.
  • The Enagic had a slightly higher pH at the highest level [this was without the aid of any chemical], but both water ionizes’ high alkaline results were plenty high enough to emulsify oils.
  • The Athena had a slightly better low acidic pH [without the aid of chemicals], but both water ionizers’ low acid pH results were plenty low enough to kill germs.

This was part 4 of a series of water ionizer comparison tests that I am calling Water Ionizer Face-Off. So far I have compared…

#1 The Tyent vs. the Enagic …got a near tie between the two water ionizers but Tyent won.


#2 The Melody vs the Enagic …got a near tie [Enagic only a little better] between the two water ionizers.https://alkalinewaterplus.com/blog/water-ionizer-face-off-2-enagic-3800-ionizer-vs-jupiter-melody-water-ionizers/

#3 The Tyent Turbo vs the Chanson Miracle …Tyent was the winner. https://alkalinewaterplus.com/blog/water-ionizer-face-off-3-tyent-turbo-vs-chanson-miracle-water-ionizers/

#4 The Enagic Kangen Water Ionizer [SD501] vs the Jupiter Athena …got a near tie [Athena a bit better]…https://alkalinewaterplus.com/blog/water-ionizer-face-off-4-enagic-sd501-3800-water-vs-jupiter-athena-water-ionizers/

#5 KYK Generation II vs. Jupiter Melody Water Ionizers
