WHY AlkaViva OVERVIEW
As you might expect each water ionizer company claims to be the best. We
give each company a fair chance to make their case to you the customer.
This is what we can tell you about AlkaViva (previously IonLife/Jupiter).
Jupiter brand was one of the first ionizer brand we sold. Many of the
owners of water ionizer companies in the United States today were
previously dealers of Jupiter/IonLife machines and spoke highly about
Jupiter machines before they started importing other models. Customers
tend to get confused with so much water ionizer choices and embark on an
exhaustive research project to select which machine to buy. We can
confidently say you can safely end your search by selecting one of the
water ionizers from AlkaViva. Here is why:
AlkaViva's Manufacturer: Emco Tech
Performance Gives you the basics of pH and ORP alteration
Durability An ionizer is an investment - you want it to last!
Filtration You want clean and healthy water
Electrodes Understanding electrode technology
Life Time Warranty
Emco Tech has been an industry leader for over 30 years. AlkaViva
alkaline water ionizers benefits from Emco Tech R&D Advantage. You can
expect that this company will be around for years to support you and
your investment. We know first hand several customers who call us in
desperation trying to find a replacement cartridge filter or a part they
need to get their machine working because the person or company they
bought it from no longer exist. rest assured that AlkaViva formally
Jupiter is not one of those companies. You can feel confident that
AlkaViva will be there when you need them. EMCO produces top performing
ionizers such as cutting edge AlkaViva Athena and Delphi water ionizers.
Renowned healing waters around the world share two common properties:
they are higher in pH and negatively ionized. An ionizer from AlkaViva
recreates these properties using water from your tap to create the
healthiest water you can drink.
pH is a measurement that indicates the level of alkalinity or acidity as
measured on the pH scale. More and more researchers and health
practitioners understand the importance of balancing body pH to maintain
good health. Ionization raises or lowers the pH in water and drinking
ionized alkaline water can help you maintain this ever important
Ionization also alters the water's electrical properties. The way this
is measured is through Oxidation Reduction Potential or ORP (redox)
which is expressed in millivolts. Alteration to the ORP is what gives
ionized alkaline water its super-hydrating, antioxidant and oxygenating
Understanding the Cleaning Cycle
We drink alkaline water to enjoy the benefits created from the
transformation of water through ionization. Here is the situation: Water
has minerals. Minerals will build up on the electrodes over time. The
electrode is the piece of equipment in your ionizer that alters the
quality of the water. Mineral build up or "scaling" decreases an
electrode's ability to transform the water. The compromised electrode
will then not be able to transform the water efficiently - unable to
give you the benefits you bought the ionizer for in the first place.
Before you buy an ionizer it is crucial you understand its cleaning
cycle. The cleaning cycle will protect your investment and ensure that
your ionizer gives you many years of quality water.
Each electrode has either a positive or negative polarity. Reverse
polarity simply switches the charge. While it is true that all ionizers
clean through what is known as "reverse polarity cleaning" - all reverse
polarity cleaning cycles are certainly not created equal.
There are two parts to reverse polarity cleaning:
1. A reversal of the polarity on the electrodes which repels anything
that is sticking there.
2. A washing or "bathing" of the electrodes in acidic water - the only
effective way to clean scale
These important aspects determine the efficacy of the cleaning cycle:
1. For optimal cleaning, the ionizer must feature a good acidic to
alkaline cleaning ratio. The more acidic water is run to bath the
electrodes the cleaner the ionizer and the greater its performance and
longevity. This is not unlike putting in extra "elbow grease" to clean a
tough spot - a brief once over will often not do the job effectively.
2. The way an ionizer is "programmed" to clean is crucial in determining
the cleaning ratio. Some units clean each time you start water flow (you
must either wait or override the cycle). Some units operate on a timer
system that initiates cleaning on an interval such as every 12 hours.
Some are set to trigger cleaning after a set volume of water passes
through the ionizer. Some even require manual cleaning, where the user
has to initiate cleaning. Each has its draw backs: you can forget to
trigger a manual cycle, you have to wait or override a pre-use cycle,
the timer based systems and in fact all these systems have poor acidic
to alkaline cleaning ratios (or not enough elbow grease). The final
drawback is that with each of the above systems you have to wait for the
cycle to complete before you can receive alkaline drinking water.
The Emco Tech Research & Development Advantage sets the standard
Isis/Melody – our entry
level ionizer – sets an industry standard by employing an Automatic
Post-use Self Cleaning mechanism - meaning it cleans automatically in
the background after each and every use. This provides a better acidic
to alkaline cleaning ratio than other reverse polarity ionizers.
Additionally, with its Patented Reversible Chamber you never have to
wait to get your alkaline water - an industry first!
However, even though Emco Tech had created the most advanced patented
cleaning system they did not stop there.
The revolutionary new patented DARC cleaning system eliminates mineral
scaling - protecting your investment and ensuring many, many years of
healthy water from your ionizer. The new cleaning system is 100%
effective because it creates a true 1:1 acidic to alkaline cleaning
ratio. The importance of this breakthrough cannot be understated.
DARC stands for Double
Automatic Reverse Cleaning. The DARC system achieves the 100% effective
1:1 acidic to alkaline cleaning ratio by cleaning while you are making
alkaline water - each and every time. They accomplish this by reversing
the polarity every 20 seconds. Therefore if you run the DARC cell for 40
seconds you get 20 seconds of one polarity and then 20 seconds of
reversed polarity. You also never have to wait for or even think about
your cleaning cycle. The revolutionary patented DARC Cleaning System is
a standard feature on the AlkaViva Athena and AlkaViva Delphi models.
include a filtration system to clean the water, however; all filtration
systems are not created equal. Most filters available in ionizers today
are three to five stages and utilize granulated activated charcoal (GAC)
and some form of calcium.
By contrast, Emco Tech's revolutionary BioStone Filtration System
employs 9 stages of filtering media to remove contaminants and to assist
in the functional alteration of the water.
The BioStone employs two stages that function to alter the water. The
first functional stage is calcium in the form of NSF certified
granulated calcium sulfite. The calcium adds a slight amount of alkaline
mineralization and helps improve the taste. The second functional stage
is tourmaline employed in BioCeramic bead form. The BioCeramic beads
completely encase the tourmaline in a 100% non-leaching ceramic coating.
The Tourmaline emits FIR energy through the ceramic coating. The FIR
slightly alters the water's electrical properties lowering the surface
tension. To read more information click on BioStone
