How are Alkaline Water Machines Compared?

Anyone doing water ionizer comparisons should compare only “apples-to-apples”! When looking at water ionizer comparison videos, it’s important to compare only those water ionizers tested at the same location and time. And remember that although a water ionizer may compare favorably for one set of tests, you should attempt to view several tests measuring numerous qualities of the machine before making a final decision.

I understand that not everyone has the time and patience to individually test every single water ionizer on the market. This chart is my effort to leverage my 2 decades of experience with water ionizers to provide consumers with a simple comparison chart to find the machine that best matches their criteria. Short of testing every single feature, there is a good rule of thumb regarding the quality of water alkalizers – the higher quality machines have the better cleaning systems. I describe my findings regarding automatic cleaning systems below.

What is ORP and why does it matter?

“ORP” stands for “Oxidation Reduction Potential,” and in simple terms means “antioxidants”. The most basic and powerful antioxidant there is is a negatively-charged electron. There are millions of these in every sip of ionized water. ORP is a measurement of whether a solution (in this case, water) has a tendency to either donate or take electrons from other solutions.

For our purposes, a negative ORP is very good, because it has lots of extra, negatively-charged electrons to fight free-radicals. Alkaline Water Ionizers can produce water with high negative ORP. Thest high levels of natural antioxidants in alkaline ionized water have important health considerations.

You can see the ORP-comparisons at point #18 in the chart, above.

What is pH and what does it measure?

The term “pH” stands for the “power of hydrogen.” The “H” is capitalized in the standard abbreviation, as it represents the chemical symbol for the hydrogen element.

PH is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. The scale ranges from 1 (very acidic) to
14 (very alkaline.) The pH scale is a logarithmic scale, meaning that water with a pH of 8 is 10 times more alkaline than 7 pH, neutral, water. Water measuring pH 9 is 100 times more alkaline than neutral water, etc.

PH is easy to measure with test strips, and I offer free pH test kits so that you can easily measure the pH of anything from the soda you drink to your own saliva.
