Water Ionizer Prefilter Demo
What are water ionizer prefilters, how do you use them, and why would you use a water ionizer prefilter?
In this video I explain and demonstrate the water ionizer prefilter. Most people don’t realize that water ionizer prefilters can be beneficial to your health, and your water ionizer’s health. This demonstration shows you an up-close look at a single housing with a prefilter inside. Here’s the video:
Water ionizer prefilters are beneficial to health, because they can filter out specific toxins you are concerned about in your source water. One particular element in most US municipal source water is fluoride. You can learn about fluoride and its harmful health effects in my blog posts about fluoride. Many professional water experts recommend the H3 Triple Housing Filter Set for city water with fluoride.
Well water users can benefit from specific prefilters sometimes if their well has some toxic element in it. An example may be arsenic or lead. While your regular water ionizer filter gets most of the bad stuff out of your water, it may not get all. Most water ionizer filters don’t get all the arsenic out. Therefore, if you have arsenic in your source water in significant amounts, you can benefit your health by choosing a specific prefilter to plug into your water input line which will get the arsenic out. The easiest way I know to test your well water to find out if there are any toxic elements in it is to get my Comprehensive Well Water Test Kit and find out instantly how much of each toxin you have and how this compares with the maximum amount of that substance allowed by the EPA.
Another popular reason to use a prefilter with your water ionizer is if you live in an area that has either very hard or very soft water. With very hard water there are anti-scale filters that can remove some of the hard water elements from your water prior to it entering and potentially damaging your water ionizer. [Please note there are two other products that can help with hard water, the Ionizer Armor, and the Anti-Scaling Device. With very soft water or RO (reverse osmosis) there are remineralizer cartridges [containing calcite, coral calcium and 70+ organic trace minerals] that can be placed in your prefilter housing.
One more reason some people use prefilters is to save the life of their water ionizer filter. You can get a very inexpensive carbon block prefilter, which will get a lot of the junk out of your water prior to even entering your water ionizer. This will put less wear and tear on your Biostone or other more expensive main water ionizer filter…and allow you to use it for up to 50% more than without using prefilter(s).
Most prefilters last a very long time, usually 1500 gallons or more, and cost very little. So, prefiltering is often not just a healthy choice, but also an economical choice.
