You have found this website!

You have taken the first step towards optimal health and understanding the importance and power of the water you drink.

Consider this:
A recent City of Winter Park (FL) Water Quality Report mentioned a possible health risk from drinking municipal water "for people that have undergone organ transplants, cancer patients on certain drugs, some elderly people, infants and people with HIV - AIDS or other immune systems disorders."

This warning comes from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and is effective for all municipal water systems. This leads one to believe that drinking tap water is a risk, even if you're comparably healthy! A recent research project using specially bred mice that have a weakened immune system had some astonishing results. One group of mice was given plain tap water resulting in an average life span of 235 days. A second group given restructured alkaline ionized water had an average life span of 346 days. The ionized water significantly increased the second groups life span and strengthened their immune system.

1. What is so unique about Water Ionizers? [top]

The Water Ionization Filter is far, far more than just a filter. Initially, the filter functions effectively using silver impregnated activated carbon fiber or granules to purify incoming water, just like 99% of household filter systems. What separates it from ordinary water filters or magnetic devices are several important additional benefits:

Additional Benefits - The ionization of the water molecules creates changes in the physical characteristics of the output alkaline water (change in pH, oxygen content, lower surface tension, negative ions) and Japanese studies have shown significant health benefits.

Unlike devices that filter through magnetic rock, or pre-bottled chemicals added to water, the water ionizer uses its own microcomputer to accurately control the rate of pH and REDOX (antioxidant quality) output. This water is sometimes called reduced or restructured water. The negative charged produced is known as ORP (Oxygen Reduction Potential).

Alkaline water ionizers improve the taste of food beyond that of normal filtered water. And, in addition, as the user 's body pH balance changes, so do the taste buds. You may find yourself enjoying simple, natural flavors more! Weight loss is a common free bonus of drinking negatively charged alkaline water.

Users commonly report major health changes, especially for chronic conditions including skin complaints, Inflammation, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, Migraine, arthritis and many more.

Pets love it and their coats will be soft and shiny.

The byproduct acid astringent water is beneficial for skin complaints, may be used as a hair rinse, eye wash, gargle, and for mild antibacterial cleansing. Users have also reported excellent results for fungus and eczema.

2. How long have Water Ionizers been on the market? [top]

Water Ionizers have been available in the orient for over fifty years and in the United States for over 25 years. Invented for industrial use in Russia in the mid-1900s, water ionizers were popularized in Japan and began to become somewhat common there around the mid 1980's. Millions of Asian and American families now use this amazing, proven product. Way back in 1992, for instance, 130,000 domestic water ionizers were sold in Japan alone. This ionization concept is also used today in industrial applications. Our manufacturers have been providing the best quality ionizers for over 25 years. They not only hold patents from the USA, Germany, Japan, Mainland China and Taiwan, but also have received worldwide recognition. In Japan and Korea, water ionizers have been approved by the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare and are used medicinally in hospitals and clinics.

We are also aware of numerous cancer clinics and alternative wellness centers that use high-alkaline ionized water as part of their protocol.

Health giving, functional water is growing in our country. Along with this growth in awareness will be the rise of popularity of water ionizers producing functional water. 10 years ago hardly anyone knew what an air ionizer was, producing the beneficial negative ions to clean the air. Water ionizers do the same, and more, for our water, and in 10 more years they will be commonplace here in the United States.

3. Why is it expensive? [top]

When compared with other water filtration systems and water ionizers on the market, our water ionizers are not expensive, and our models have been chose with the best quality, features and appeal. Further, compared to bottled water solutions, ionizers are both economical and environmentally acceptable. If you used only 2 liters of bottled water a day, at only $.99/liter, this would equal $722.70 in bottled water per year (per person in household). Over the 10 year expected life span of an ionizer, bottled water would cost you $7,227. And that's for only one person. ADD in bottled water you may buy when you're out and about! In addition, less than 10% of plastic water bottles end up being recycled!!

4. What goes on inside of a Water Ionizer? [top]

It is really a simple process called electrolysis, or ionization, something your body has to do every day to make energy available. It is backed up by the high tech ability of micro-circuitry to maintain quality and regular output, plus the ability, through ionization, to remove harmful chemicals and retain beneficial, alkaline ionized minerals. Ionized minerals are the form your body can recognize and use, just like in fresh food. This is why Sang Whang, author of "Reverse Aging" calls it REVERSE AGING WATER.

A custom designed motherboard controls all aspects of the process of ionization, while the LCD screen displays the current settings including flow rate, water temperature, filter life and on some models pH and ORP levels.

5. Does it matter what the electrodes on a Water Ionizer are composed of? [top]

The electrodes are one of the most important components of a Water Ionizer. It is sometimes suggested that there are units on the market that have stainless steel electrodes or have titanium electrodes coated with iridium. Be assured that all of our water ionizers are of the highest quality standard using titanium electrode plates dipped in platinum, which is one of the main costs of a Water Ionizer. It is important to note that the electrodes are coated with platinum, not electroplated with platinum. All of the ionizers we carry are SOLID-plate electrodes, not MESH, and it's what we recommend

6. Will my Ionizer fit my kitchen tap? [top]

Your water ionizer comes with a diverter adapter kit which will fit most traditional faucets, but will not fit some of the designer taps which have pull out handles with a flexible hose. The accessory adapter rings that come with your ionizer may be needed, and/or a trip to the hardware store for the proper adapter rings may be needed if you want to install the ionizer diverter at the end of your designer faucet. To install your ionizer underneath the sink, see our Conversion Kits - this option keeps your counter clear with no hoses to the faucet. A dedicated faucet with two spouts (one each for alkaline and acid waters) is installed with the hoses and ionizer under your sink.

7. Is the water ionizer easy to install? [top]

It is actually very simple and far simpler than a DVD player! You attach the sturdy diverter valve to your faucet, attach the supplied hose to the diverter and the other end to the ionizers inlet valve. A second hose attaches to the ionizer to allow the acid water to drain out of the Filter. Plug it in and drink!Click here for an Installation Video for the AlkaViva H2 Series of water ionizers.

8. How do I get my ordinary tap water once it's attached? [top]

The diverter that attaches to your faucet has a lever which directs the water flow from the tap water faucet to the Ionizer. It has an incorporated aerator for your tap water and is easy to flip.

9. Can it go under my counter? [top]

YES! There are under-counter Conversion Kits that work great! That's what I use. The Conversion Kit includes a double-spigot faucet that gets installed in a hole in your counter top - either from a hot-water or filtered-water dispenser, a hose sprayer or a soap dispenser pump. These holes are standard size, but you can always have a hole drilled for your Conversion Kit faucet, if need be. This double spigot allows both the alkaline and acid waters to flow into your sink. Click here to see our Water Ionizer Conversion Kits for under-sink installation.

Keep in mind that you will want to change pH levels, so you do want easy access to the unit when you open the cabinet door. All of our water ionizers can also be mounted on the wall for above counter use.

10. Why can't I just drink a lot of tap water to be hydrated? [top]

You CAN just drink copious amounts of tap water and you will harvest some of the benefits we speak of, but it still can't penetrate your cells like micro-clustered alkaline, ionized water, and this is why ionized water with its bounty of negative oxygen ions is able to rid you of acid wastes in the cells. It can go where ordinary water cannot, getting into the finest of capillaries, and, because of its antioxidant properties, it has the ammunition to neutralize free radicals, the cause of cancer, disease and aging. This is also the fundamental difference between water ionizers and so-called bottled anti-aging water. This water is 'live'.

11. Why do different Water Ionizers come with different levels of intensity? [top]

A Water Ionizer should have at least 3 alkaline levels to chose from, plus neutral water. This is mainly because Ionized Water is extremely detoxifying and most of us have toxins built up over our lives in our systems. Drinking too much water at too high a pH too quickly, we might suffer detox reactions such as headaches, flu symptoms or diarrhea. It is suggested that the older you are, the slower you work your way up from the weaker alkaline water to the highest level. Also those who have a very poor diet or have taken a lot of medicine should adjust slowly. Having various levels simply offers the convenience of more levels of strength to chose from, thus allowing people to build their tolerance for Ionized Water more slowly if they wish. No need to rush, as you'll be drinking this water for the rest of your life!

When I started drinking ionized water (2004), I thought I was so healthy because I hadn't had a cold in nine years...read about MY DETOX REACTION! That's how I knew how powerful this water was, and why I created this business to spread the word!

12. How do I know if I have acidosis or an acid-overloaded system? [top]

Most Westerners do. The pace and stress of life, the state of our foods, the concentration of acid-producing items in our diet means that 99% of people are overloaded.

You can use a litmus urine or saliva test to give you some idea of your acidity. This is not foolproof or definitive, however, because your body is always attempting to balance your acid and alkaline levels and could well be getting rid of a load of acid at the time of the test. Plus, the time of day you test is crucial to understanding. It pays to look at your diet.

Testing your saliva should be done first thing in the morning, before drinking or eating anything. Make a bunch of saliva and swallow it three times, then do the test, BUT only with pH test sticks/strips meant for this.

Testing your urine requires some analysis as to time of day, lapse since eating or drinking, and collecting this data over time.

13. Why is some water healthier than others? [top]

People located in the Hunza Districts of Pakistan, Shin-Chan areas of China, the Caucasus in Azerbaijan, and in the Andes Mountains live longer with less health problems. Researchers believe that these waters are very pure and have a negative redox potential (ORP) caused by either intimate contact with certain native volcanic materials/minerals or by cascading over certain igneous rocks. It is believed that Water Ionizers are able to produce the same effect.

Water from the spring that flows from the Grotto of Massabielle in the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes, France has been found to contain high levels of hydrogen, just like ionized water!

14. What maintenance do water ionizers require? [top]

None, with the exception of changing the filter regularly and an annual deep cleaning. The LCD readout tells you when the filter(s) needs to be changed. All of our water ionizers have built in cleaning functions, reversing polarity of the electrodes on a regular basis, repelling mineral residue that may have accumulated on the electrodes since the last cleaning. An annual deep cleaning is recommended to keep the electrodes in optimally functioning condition. This can be done manually (using a small garden pump) and we now carry special cleaning filters for the AlkaViva ionizers.

15. Do all Water Ionizers have a silver impregnated carbon filter? [top]

All continuous flow Home Water Ionizers on the market have a carbon filter. The carbon in the filter is silver impregnated in order to retard bacterial growth. The silver that is impregnated in the carbon will NOT leach into the water. Every major manufacturer of carbon filters in the US produces carbon filters with silver impregnation. There are no Water Ionizers currently manufactured that use arsenic in their filters as has been suggested elsewhere on the internet. The standard filters are a silver impregnated, activated carbon FIBER filter filter, and a silver impregnated GRANULATED carbon filter. The AlkaViva water ionizers' Ultra-Filter is the BEST filter on the market.

16. What about hard water areas or other detrimental substances? [top]

Some very hard water may require a pre-filter. You can also add pre-filters to remove specific substances, such as fluoride, iron and arsenic. A water report from your town is usually available. Call us for more info.

17. What are some of the more harmful organisms and chemicals removed from water by the Ionizer? [top]

Chlorine & trihalomethanes, suspended solids, cryptosporidium, parasites (cysts), waterborne flu virus, E-coli, organic compounds, bacterias pharmaceutical drugs and radioactive particulates.

Click here for information about the Yi-Shan replacement filters.

18. What is the advantage of having UV light on a water filtration unit? [top]

The purpose of UV light is for bacterial disinfection. However, on a Water Ionizer this is completely unnecessary. If you have city (municipal) water then your water has already been disinfected through the use of chlorine, which the carbon filter on the Water Ionizer will remove. The carbon fiber in the filter is impregnated with silver to prevent any subsequent bacterial growth. The UV light itself loses much of its effectiveness after the first six months of use and should be replaced often, which is of course an expensive proposition. In addition, the glass tube that the water travels through in order that it can be exposed to the UV light develops a film on it after only a few months, which greatly lessens the effectiveness of the UV light on the water which passes through the tube.

19. Do Water Ionizers remove fluoride from the water as some have claimed? [top]

There have been statements made regarding Water Ionizers removing fluoride from municipal water. To Ionize means simply to gain or lose an electron. The amount and type of minerals that are present in the water before ionization is the same after ionization, however some amount of certain minerals remain in the alkaline side and some on the acid side. In testing, about 50% of the fluoride in the water was removed from the alkaline side to the acidic side. This means that half but not all of the fluoride in the Ionized Water after ionization had migrated to the acidic side of the ionization process which runs into the drain. However, it must be clearly stated that the ionization of the water does NOT completely remove fluoride from the Ionized Water on the alkaline side. To remove fluoride (and arsenic) most effectively you must use a specialized fluoride pre-filter with a housing. Contact us for more details.

Keep in mind that there is some naturally occuring flouride in water.

20. What kind of warranty do water ionizers have? [top]

Our water ionizers have 3 year, 5 year or Limited Lifetime warranties, depending on which ionizer you purchase. We will repair or replace any part which, in our opinion, is defective during this time. This warranty is voided if the unit has been subjected to tampering, alteration, or improper use after delivery or has been repaired by anyone other than an authorized representative of URparamount.

Using an ionizer with soft water, reverse osmosis water, distilled water or well water voids the warranty.

21. Will you still be in business 5 years from now? [top]

Our company has been in business since 2002, and its suppliers have been in the water products business since the early 1990s. We are passionate about bringing the benefits of ionized water to as many people as we can, and we believe the popularity of water ionizers will continue to grow, and we will grow as well.

22. What exactly is Ionized Water? [top]

Ionization simply means to gain or lose an electron. Water that has been ionized becomes either alkaline or acidic, more positively charged (acidic, low pH) or negatively charged (alkaline or high pH). High-Alkaline water is full of negatively charged Hydroxyl ions, which have a potent anti-oxidant benefit in your body.

Acidic water is full of positively charged Hydrogen ions. This is water that we apply only to the outside of our body. It is also great for plant growth and cleaning as a disinfectant.

23. How does the Water Ionizer produce ionized water? [top]

Water is run over positive and negative electrodes, which ionizes the water, changing the molecular structure ever-so-slightly. It is then separated into negative alkaline and positive acidic water as it passes through membranes.

Research indicates ancient Greeks and Romans stored water in copper and brass vessels and caused ionization. Copper is a chemical element with a very high thermal and electrical conductivity and brass is a mixture of copper and zinc, an alkaline mineral.

24. Why should I drink Ionized Water? [top]

There are four main benefits to Ionized Water, in addition to filtering your water:

First and foremost, alkaline ionized water is a powerful antioxidant, very negatively charged, which neutralizes positively charged free radicals. Free Radical damage causes us to age, wrinkle and allows disease to take root. Some people spend significant dollars each month purchasing antioxidant supplements for anti-disease, anti-aging and anti-cancer. Since Ionized Water is a liquid antioxidant, it is easily absorbed into the body which makes it much more effective and a potent antioxidant.

Secondly, when the ionized antioxidant water in the form of negatively charged Hydroxyl Ions (oxygen molecule with an extra electron) donates its extra electrons to positively charged free radicals (oxygen molecule that is missing one electron) you are left with lots of extra oxygen. It is this extra oxygen in Ionized Water that gives you energy and mental clarity (no more brain fog!) by bathing your cells in oxygen! This is one of the most incredible aspects of Ionized Water! To underscore these benefits, in 1931, Dr. Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize for his work showing that cancer cannot live in the presence of abundant oxygen. And it is becoming more and more well known that disease (and cancer) CANNOT live in an oxygenated ALKALINE environment, both qualities of which are provided from ionized water.

Thirdly, Ionized Water balances body pH because it is very alkaline. Our diet is often extremely acidic. Meat, fish, dairy, soft drinks, fast foods & processed foods deposit acid waste in our bodies that builds up over time and creates an ideal environment for diseases of all kinds to thrive. When you are close to death, your pH levels drop. Look at any cancer patient, for instance, and their bodies are invariably acidic to some degree. This is, of course, true even with children. Chronic soft drink and cancdy consumers, such as children, put themselves in grave danger by allowing their bodies to build up acid waste. More and more are ending up with serious diseases at a very young age. Additionally, most of us are dehydrated, which causes our acidic wastes left over from our daily metabolic processes to accumulate, compounding the over acidity. Over acidity also causes weight gain, as the acid gets stored away in fat cells where it can't do as much bodily harm. They know, when they do liposuction, that what they pull out is highly acidic!

Maintaining an alkaline pH helps us to maintain an environment in our bodies that is NOT conducive to disease. It may take years depending on how acidic your body is, but Ionized Water, because of its alkaline properties, will flush acid waste from our bodies.

Fourth, Ionized Water has a different molecular cluster size due to its reduced surface tension. The clusters contain only five to six water molecules in regular pentagonal or hexagonal shapes instead of the ten to twelve molecules found in conventional water (including distilled, reverse osmosis and bottled waters). This smaller or "reduced" water is much more hydrating than conventional water, as it can penetrate the cell wall faster and more easily, as well as get into the finest of capillaries that conventional water cannot reach. Therefore, ionized water is significantly more hydrating and detoxifying than conventional water.

The detoxification properties of Ionized Water are powerful and astounding. They simply cannot be ignored. A Water Ionizer has different levels of intensity because the average person cannot start out drinking strongly ionized Water. This is particularly true of the elderly, who need to start out at the lowest level and work their way up slowly. People who have spent a lifetime building up acid waste in their bodies will suffer headaches, flu symptoms and diarrhea if they drink too much too soon at too high a pH level.

I had my own detox symptoms, even after eating health foods and being a vegetarian for many years! Click here to read my story!

25. How does Ionized Water taste compared with conventional water? [top]

A common remark regarding the taste of Ionized Water is that it tastes smoother and lighter than conventional water, and it is easier to drink larger quantities. This is because of the molecule cluster size and shape. Since it is small and regular shaped, it feels smooth, simply because it is! It also does not fill you up and bloat you the way conventional water can if you drink a lot of it at once.

26. How long does Ionized Water stay Ionized? [top]

The Antioxidant negative charge (hydroxyl ions) will last approximately 18-24 hours. The Higher pH (alkaline properties) will last approximately 1-2 weeks. The smaller molecule cluster size will last approximately 1-3 months. However, it is not recommended to store ionized water because the negative charge is the most important quality and is gone after a day. Also, you never want to store water in plastic bottles of ANY kind, including polycarbonate (#7, or Nalgene). Glass is best. Freshly ionized water is best.

27. Does Ionized Water have any negative effects? [top]

Absolutely none, as long as it is used properly. Only the alkaline water should be consumed. NEVER DRINK THE ACIDIC WATER. There are no known reports of any negative effects from Ionized Water, either alkaline or acidic, as long as it is used properly. It can be detoxifying, so start slow and low. And, it is recommended that you take medications with only filtered (not ionized) water.

28. Who should drink it? [top]

Anyone and everyone, young and old, human or animal. It is beneficial to some degree to nearly everyone and everything it comes in contact with.

29. How should I start drinking it? [top]

Start out slow at level one, drinking 1-3 glasses per day. If the water agrees with you, increase the amount you drink and the level of ionization intensity. The stronger, the better, but take your time in building up to the higher levels. Take about a month to reach the highest level. The antioxidant is most powerful on the high levels. You will of course experience more energy at the higher levels, but the fresher the ionized water is, the stronger these properties are. Should you experience detoxification symptoms, be aware they can be STRONG and unmistakable: flu-like symptoms but without a fever - headache, stomach ache, digestive upset, joint problems, mucous, etc. However, this only lasts a short time, maybe several days.

30. Can it be used commercially? [top]

Yes, in innumerable ways. In the dairy industry, with live stock, healthier, faster growing crops, etc. All this is now being demonstrated, albeit slowly, to these industries. The Alkaline Ionized Water should be fed to the animals. The Acidic Ionized Water will benefit the crops, as well as the livestock in that it will help keep a much lower mortality rate and cleaner environment, keeping in mind the acidic water retards bacteria and bacterial growth. Tests are underway in various industries demonstrating the positive effects of Ionized Water but they are still in their infancy.

31. How does Ionized Water effect athletes? [top]

In an extremely positive way, as you might expect. Blood oxygen levels will rise varying amounts with regular use of strong Ionized Water. This increases stamina, endurance and provides the muscles tissue and organs with high amounts of oxygen which the human body often lacks, even in athletes because of inadequate diets. If professional and amateur sports were to discover this, it would eventually become one of the most established benefits to athletes everywhere. That will happen, but acceptance of Ionized Water will take time.

32. Why should I buy a Water Ionizer? [top]

It is best to drink freshly ionized water for it's full wellness promoting benefits. You cannot buy bottled water with the qualities of freshly ionized water. Even if you buy ionized water from a dispensery, remember, the most important feature (the negative charge) is gone in about 24 hours. Further, compared to bottled water solutions, it is both economical and environmentally acceptable. If you drank only 2 liters of bottled water a day (not nearly enough water), at only $.99/liter, this would equal $722.70 in bottled water per year. Over the 10 year expected minimum life span of an ionizer, bottled water would cost you $7,227 - and that's just for one person!

Assuming you are not going to drink un-treated tap water, a water ionizer is more ecologically responsible than bottled water, by far. Less than 10% of water bottles are recycled, which means we are leaving mountains of plastic water bottles for our grandchildren! Although the water ionzer filters get thrown out, this creates much, much less garbage than water bottles.

To have Alkaline Water on hand 24 hours a day is worth the price of the Ionizer alone. Once you have begun to use it and take advantage of its incredible properties, you will know that you have made the right decision to purchase one.
