The top markets for water ionizers are Korea and Japan, where the most long established manufacturers are located. The local demand in these countries keeps them in business.
Water ionizer manufacturers outside of Japan and Korea tend to come and go as demand is limited and fluctuates leading many to go out of business in a few years. Only a few companies have remained in business over the last 20 years,
Some of these Ionizers are sold primarily in the US are via Multi-Level Marketing and personal promotion as water ionizers have remained a peripheral, niche markets,
Royal Water (aka Jupiter Science) has been in water purification since 1970 and has been making water ionizers since 1984. It is considered the best Ionizer brand and is one of the world’s largest producer of water ionizers.
Local Supplier and Customer Service
You will buy the ionizer from your local supplier, who becomes your primary point of contact for customer service.
Supplier factors such as helpful support, installation, replacement of filters are important.
Glowing Health have been supplying water ionizers since 2005 from Hornsey, North London. They supply a range of Ionizers including the Microlite JP107
The Directors Dr Ahson and Dr Zahida take pride in providing the best customer service.
An important feature of water ionizers is the quality of the replacement filters. The most effective water filters are active charcoal based. A good charcoal is able to filter over 99.9% of toxins from the water, which is why charcoal filters are used in all the ionizers listed here.
The better quality charcoal filters are graded to 1 Microns, which will filter out all microbes as well as the chemicals and pollutants. A 0.1 micron water filter is even finer, and is the ideal filter for tap water filtration.
Even finer filters that filter to 0.01M, the level of filtration used in Kidney Dialysis machines are available, but not required for water filtration.
In water ionizers, these fiters can slow down the water flow and clog the ionizer.
Multi-Phase, Hollow Fibre Bio-Stone Filters
These are filters that separate the charcoal layers with hollow fibres. The hollow fibres provide a gap that greatly improves the effectiveness of the filters. Bio-stones add a layer of tourmaline, a semi-precious stone that serves to energise the water that peculates through it.
Only the new Jupiter Ionizers feature the 0.1 Micron multi-phase, hollow fibre bio-stone filters.
Which is the Best Ionizer
The Microlite Ionizer is recommended as being the best ionizer based on price, performance, reliability, availability and local customer support in the UK.
The Microlite compares favourably with other ionizers that cost several times more, and provides the finest quality ionized water, with no metallic after taste. It has a 10 years history of reliability, performance and user satisfaction.
The Microlite is supplied by Glowing Health, who have been supplying water Ionizers and Infrared Saunas since 2004.
Unlike the US models, it connects to standard UK 220V/50Hz electricity with a 3 pin UK Plug.
