Anyone that reads this blog knows that I’m a big supporter of proper hydration. I believe every household in the world should have a decent filtration system at the very minimum. Gone are the days when you can simply drink the water coming out of your tap without consideration of what is in the water. The only thing holding people back from having safe drinking water or healthy drinking water is money.
Water Filters ($250):
A good pre-filter system that can be customized to the needs of your source water costs about $250. It is hard to imagine any better use of your money. When you consider that the average American family spends on fast foods or that they spend $400 on average on bottled water, a pre-filter system is a no-brainer. With bottled water, you don’t know what you are getting. In a world that is trying to go “green”, bottled water is going in the wrong direction.
Antioxidant Filters ($400):
If you want safe, great tasting drinking water that provides all of the health benefits derived from the antioxidants found in alkaline ionized water, you can now purchase a Antioxidant Filter for $400. A Antioxidant filter has the added benefit of self filtration of all major contaminants found in our water supplies without the additional cost of paying for a pre-filter system. The one time cost of buying a Antioxidant Filter will eliminate the annual cost of bottled water and provide well documented health benefits.
Water Ionizers ( $1,500):
If you want to be able to obtain a “full spectrum” of pH levels with very low ORP levels, you will need a water ionizer. A full spectrum of pH levels, refers to the wide range of pH outputs that can be generated from these great machines. A top quality water ionizer should be able to generate pH levels from as low as 2.5 acidic water used for disinfecting, through the 5.5 pH “beauty water” used for skin cleansing, to 7.0 pH used for drinking water for babies or for swallowing medications, to 8.5 to 9.5 pH for obtaining the antioxidant properties found in alkaline ionized water, to 11.0 pH used for removing the pesticides from the surface of store bought fruits and vegetables.
Every home needs a proper filtration system. Good filtration can be obtained for a pre-filter system ($250) or from an Antioxidant Filter ($400) which also provides the health benefits of delivering powerful antioxidants found in alkaline ionized water. A water ionizer ($1,500) provides a wide spectrum of pH levels that offers benefits beyond the straight forward health benefits of alkaline ionized water, but they should be accompanied by a proper pre-filtration system to be most effective.
According to the most experienced people in the water ionizer industry, most people, use the drinking water about 30 times for for every time they use either the acidic water or the strong alkaline water. As a result, the new Antioxidant water filters offer a low cost alternative that serves the needs of the majority of the population. If you can afford a water ionizer and a pre-filter, the combination represents the best alternative because of the added flexibility of uses.
The introduction of the Antioxidant Filter is great news for two reasons. First, they allow people to get great filtered water with all the antioxidant properties of alkaline ionized water at a very affordable price. Second, the introduction of Antioxidant Filters is driving down the price of the leading brands of water ionizers.
At the current time, nobody should pay more that $1,500 for a high quality water ionizer. At least two nationally recognized brands are available in the $1,500 range and the higher priced models can also be purchased at the $1,500 level if you do your homework. If you need help finding lower prices on the $2,000 to $2,500 machines, send me an email and I will point you in the right direction. It will then be up to you as to which brand you buy and where you buy it.
