Best Water Ionizer Reviews 2018 – Buyer’s Guide

What is the Best Water Ionizer? Is a question I hear all the time, but a better question is, “What are the top water ionizers?”

There are many different water ionizers each with their own good and bad parts. Yet there are a few that stand above the rest because of their value, features, and customer satisfaction, more on that later.

All of these water ionizers have a large company that supper them, a must for any Best water ionizer.

You can’t go wrong with any of these best water ionizer, but the main difference between them is the price range.

If you are are looking for the best value or you are new to water ionizers take a look at the Aqua Ionizer Deluxe 7.0 from Air Water Life ®. MSRP $895.

The incredible price along with the high 11pH and super low -840 ORP anti-oxidant rich (water clusters) make this ionizer an amazing buy for under $2,800 let alone the $895 sale price. It even has an optional under counter kit for $75 and a lifetime warranty.

If you have a bigger budget round $3,000 and want an elegant looking ionizer take a look at the Tyent Rettin Under Counter Extreme 9000T ® for $2,800 , it made our list as a best water ionizer.

Yes this is a big jump in price almost three times our best buy ionizer, but if you have the budget for it you can’t go wrong.

Finally we have the ionizer that started it all, the Kangen SD 501 ® water ionizer for $3,800.  Yes this is a big price to swallow and yes many people do not agree with their marketing strategies, but the ionizer itself is a great unit.

It has household name recognition, quality and uses chemical to get down to that low 2.5 pH if that is important to you.(Most people do not need the 2.5 pH I will show you why later)

Lets dive right in and find out why these are the best water ionizer I feel in the market today.

2. Jupiter Water Ionizer Review

This will cover the Jupiter water ionizer review, a “popular” ionizer, with the specifications, the advantages and disadvantages.Jupiter Water Ionizer

I cut the fat out of this review. I looked at over 25 individual and independent reviews from across the internet as well as my personal experiences for this Jupiter Water Ionizer Review.

Jupiter Water Ionizers ® offer about 5 different alkaline water machines. Some units are branded different but have the same “guts” inside. Their price ranges from the base model around $1,295 to the under-counter option for $2695.00

Business Information

Jupiter or Melody water ionizers are manufactured by a company called EmcoTech ®  from Korea, but they are distributed by another marketing company, Ionways ®

Ionways is not a water ionizer manufacturer but a US selling company.


  • Moderately Priced
  • Average 5 year Warranty
  • Average pH range
  • Standard Titanium Platinum coated Plates
  • Solid Plate Design


  • 5 Plate design
  • Chemical Additives to increase pH (Why did they use them? Keep reading)
  • Filter cost- Up to $170 a year
  • Plastics- Unspecified, Unidentified (Are they FDA approved? BPA Free?)
  • Age of the Machine/Design

3. The Melody Ionizer Review

I do like the melody ionizer. It is easy to use and install from a great company.

Yet the machine only has 5 plates rather than 7 plates like many other water ionizers in the same price range. (Some high quality ionizers even have 7 plates for only $900)The Melody Ionizer

Having more plates lets the ionizer naturally achieve a higher pH range as well and the all-important ORP range.

Internet reviews including Amazon Reviews are mostly positive for this unit. They like the design and easy to use features of the unit like I do. Yet some people were expecting a higher pH and ORP range from a unit of this price.

People do have different water sources, such as well water, softened water, and RO filtration which may account for the lack of pH and ORP.

I would suggest a 7 plate water ionizer to insure you get the full ph and ORP ranges no matter what your water source is.

Advantages and Disadvantages


  • Platinum Plates
  • Warranty -Above average 5 years
  • 30 Day Satisfaction Guarantee
  • Average Price Value
  • pH options – 4 alkaline and 4 acidic


  • Only 5 plates- For this price I was hoping for 7 plates
  • No Approved Plastics
  • Filters costs $89.95 up to $179.90 for one year
  • ORP Range ???

4. Samsung Water Ionizer Review

Don’t let the brand name fool you on this one folks. The Samsung water ionizer is not all that it looks to be. The reason this ionizer is not more popular is because it is not actually made by Samsung! The company Alka Viva, also known as Ionways, is the main manufacturer of this ionizer. Samsung Water Ionizer

Samsung assisted Alka Viva in the designing of the machine and also let them put the Samsung name on it to make it more attractive to consumers. The Samsung water ionizer I will be primarily focusing on for this review is the Samsung Vesta.

One thing about the Samsung water ionizer that really jumps off the page is that it has 9 plates. Many people would think that this much better than the original 5 or even the 7 plate models. Well I’m here to tell you, that is incorrect.

The more plates you have increases the amount of space required to fit all the plates, plus needing a power supply strong enough to be able to consistently generate power to all the plates.

The main reason why having 9 plates is unnecessary is because the ionized water that comes out of a 9 plate machine will test high on the pH scale. It is recommended that you don’t drink water over a pH of 9.9 because of health reasons.

This machine and any other 9 plate machine, has the capability of producing water at a much higher pH than this, which could harm you more than help you. Here are some more positives and negatives on this machine.


  • 9 Plates
  • Lifetime Warranty (Limited)
  • Quality Filters for Tap water
  • Machine Quality is very good


  • Extremely pricey
  • 9 plates

5. Platinum Alkaline Water Ionizer Machine Review

The Platinum Alkaline water ionizer is more popular in Europe than the US, but they are definitely still around and good enough to take a look at.Platinum Alkaline Water Ionizer Machine

There are two models of water ionizers made by Platinum Alkaline. The first model is the MS600 Water Ionizer and the second model is the MS900UV Water Ionizer.

The second model uses the Ultraviolet light technology when treating the water. The Platinum Alkaline models are also UL and CE certified, which means the plastics they use to make the ionizer are safe and the company is allowed to sell their products worldwide.

There are so many different types of water ionizers out on the market now, it’s hard to know which one is right for you. Hopefully this review will teach you enough about the product for you to make an informed decision before purchasing.


  • Inexpensive
  • Easy to Use
  • Ultraviolet Light to help kill bacteria
  • Platinum-coated titanium plates


  • Outdated technology
  • Hard to find information about ORP levels

What are Alkaline Water Ionizer Machines?

Simply put, Alkaline Water Machines use Ionization to remove impurities and acid to turn ordinary tap water into extraordinary water to boost your health, wellbeing and help with weight loss.

There are two types of machine, ones that work via distillation (Very Rare) and more common ones that use a gentle electric currant to ionize the water.



As standard, tap water has a pH of 7, this means its base and neither acidic nor alkaline. The health boost that comes from alkaline water is when your body’s natural balance is restored to a slightly elevated pH level. Why is your body so acidic to start with?

Well, western diets, pollution and environmental effects all cause your body to operate at a more acidic level than it’s used too. Alkaline water is the perfect way to restore that balance and give your body the health kick it needs.

A few years ago, these machines were very expensive and completely out of price range for most households. Now, prices have decreased as the technology has become more widespread; Alkaline Water Machines are now well within reach for most families.

What about the Health Benefits?

There are numerous health benefits to drinking alkaline water regularly.

More Energy

The Ionization treatment allows alkaline water to carry more oxygen that its standard counterpart. This allows more life-giving oxygen to reach body tissues, aiding recover, repair and giving you more energy for work, sports and life.

Making the effort to drink more water in general is good too. The average person needs 2 litres of water each day for optimum health. Many alkaline water drinkers cite an overall increase in the water they consume every day – a simple change that makes all the difference.

Alkaline water is a good overall measure to take if you’re serious about losing weight, feeling great and generally making the move towards a future full of health and vitality.

During the Ionization, each water molecule of water is burst into smaller atoms. It’s been said that because alkaline water contains smaller molecules, it can enter the bloodstream far quicker than standard tap / bottled water – allowing you to hydrate much quicker.

This helps with sports, fitness and promotes greater health due to the fact water is so important to your body’s health and well-being.

“I’m Ready, How Do I Get One?”

With many vendors selling alkaline water machines it’s tough to find the best one for you. Some of the options are difficult to understand plus the terminology can seem a bit scientific.

If you’re in the market for an alkaline water machine right now, here are some tips to find the perfect one for you.

Models – Different models have different features and not all will be suitable for you. Try a handful of different devices out and be prepared to do some online research or talk to a professional to get a good idea of what each model does.

Some suppliers do offer a free test of their machines and it’s always a great idea to take them up on their offer. Cleaning – Always make sure your chosen machine can be cleaned easily.

Not all models are easy to take apart and clean, something you won’t want to spend too much time on after a busy day.

If you’re stuck ask the advice of a professional or look at online reviews to see how each model compares for cleaning, ease of use and maintenance.
Plumbers – If you’re looking to have a system installed; choose a good plumber to do the job. In the UK, look for City and Guild qualification and check your states local laws if you live in the United States – different states might have different qualifications.
