Water Ionizer Brands We Don't Carry
Several brands of water ionizers are sub-standard: either made by small and unknown manufacturers or who seem to have several things to hide about themselves. I usually will to my due-diligence to find out as much about a brand of water ionizers that I can before I sell that brand. Then again if I start selling a brand, but then later find there are some issues with the products or company that cannot be reconciled, we of course would part ways. Here are some issues that would disqualify a brand from getting my support:
- If I can tell the company is using any kind of deceit in their business.
- If the research and development team appears to be led by profit rather than safety.
- If the methods of used in water ionizer construction appear to be unsafe, or if I can't validate that they are safe. (This includes cases where the company doesn't answer my questions about their safety and certificates.)
Examples of Water Ionizer Brands We No Longer Carry:
Without using names, I'll try to describe some of the issues with water ionizer brands we have come across over the years.
- Companies who keep boosting the power and plates of residential water ionizers. Water ionizers are tested and safe to use between 100 and 200 watts and with 5 - 9 plates. They start getting either 1) unsafe to use or 2) ineffective for normal residential purposes after that. Here is an article explaining the electronics and plates issue with water ionizers. The fact is we have tested all kinds of water ionizers; all sizes, all major brands of water ionizers; and all power-levels. We have found much more truth in testing them then we were able to find in asking the manufacturers of those brands of water ionizers. All brand-owners will boast about why there brand is best, but for us to function we actually needed to sift through all of that and get to the facts. Testing and comparing was the only way it could be done.
- Companies who use deceitful methods in promoting their brand of water ionizers. This includes companies who have several websites that they use to build up their reputation in a false and mis-leading way. One particular company has one of their websites give their water ionizer brand "water ionizer of the year" awards.
- One particular particular company tried to stop Alkaline Water Plus at every turn from testing their water ionizers. Their concerns about our publicly sharing any test results about their water ionizer brand got so serious that they contacted us to cease any public sharing of any testing whatsoever. Obviously that was a serious red flag about the company. I then tried to just visit them and privately test their ionizers (without sharing the results) but they refused even this. In the meantime the company continuously kept boasting about how they were better because they used more plates, watts, etc. It was very frustrating and I didn't trust anything about them at that point. Prior to that point, the only testing I had seen for that water ionizer brand at the time was testing done by a PHD scientist and his team at Silver State Laboratory in Nevada. The scientist was commissioned to perform several independent tests of several water ionizers and was no way influenced by any bias. Theirs was the only water ionizer brand that did poorly in that testing of all the major brands of water ionizers. Another problem with the company was that they owned several websites and used them to build a false impression of their brand's size and importance. Had the company been honest and straight to begin with I may have still left them, because when I eventually did test their brand of water ionizers I found it to be in fact inferior.
- Another situation we run into with a lot of brands of water ionizers is the company saying their products are on sale when they really are always offered at that price. As an example, one brand of water ionizers says the regular price of a particular machine is $4995 but now for a limited time it is being offered at a sale price that is $1500 lower: $3495. This is actually a type of fraud. The Federal Trade Commission calls this DECEPTIVE PRICING, and it's illegal.
