I have been a huge fan of ionized water since the first week I began drinking the water three years ago. The water changed my life and I started selling electric water ionizers….a lot of them. When I retired in February 2010, I continued to research water and water ionizers and report my findings on this blog.
I have written many times about the nasty behavior and the short sighted perspective of the owners of the electric water ionizer companies. Their greed and childish pranks have damaged their reputations and credibility of the entire industry. It has been incredibly frustrating for me to witness all the nonsense because these incredible machines should be in every home. Water ionizers should be a mainstream product just like a toaster or a coffee pot.
Regardless of all the silly antics of the players, the real problem for the industry is that most people simply can’t afford to lay out $2,000 to $4,000 for a water ionizer. Those that can afford a machine are put off by the lack of real information available, or the disgraceful behavior of the players in the unregulated industry.
Highly Effective Natural Water Ionizers From $249
The people running Vitev.com reduced the price of their Flo from $399 to $249 in July. The decrease in prices is due to two factors: 1) Vitev has recovered the high cost of the molds and has chosen to reduce the price accordingly instead of keeping the price high like the other companies in the industry……2) the volume of sales have increased over time to the point where the company is getting better prices from its suppliers due to volume purchases. I only have one thing to say about this….BRAVO VITEV!
Natural Water Ionizers Go Mainstream
We witnessed the price of water ionizer drop from $4,000 to $2000 when the Tyent’s and Life Ionizer’s and others jumped into the game five or six years ago. Over time, a few models of electric water ionizer dropped their prices below $2,000 but the lower prices didn’t really have a significant effect on demand because the lower prices were still too high for most people. In fact, electric water ionizer sales are frightenly slow these according to everyone I talk to. I expect that the sales of electric water ionizers will continue to decrease as more and more people become aware of the newer and lower priced technology.
The Vitev people seem to have a grasp on what it takes to bring water ionizers into the mainstream. They have addressed the affordability issue and it appears they are also pursuing broader channels of distribution than the electric water ionizer companies. It’s about time somebody did it!
