How does a alkaline water ionizer work ?

ionizer-fonction-filter-alkaline-water Connecting directly to your faucet, a water ionizer uses a two step process. The first task is to filter out harmful components of the water: chlorine, trihalomethanes, phenols, sediment, odor, taste, organic waste, and bacteria of all kinds. Ionways achieves this by the use of a multistage activated carbon filter containing tourmaline and coral calcium. Next, a small electrical charge is introduced into the water through platinum-coated titanium electrodes. The process of electrolysis that follows takes place in a patented chamber designed to separate the water into two streams of ionized water:
Positively charged ions gather at the negative electrode to create reduced water, which concentrates available alkaline minerals, such as calcium, magnesium and potassium from the source water. This alkaline ionized water is drawn for drinking and cooking, through the main stainless steel spout.
Negatively charged ions gather at the positive electrode to make oxidized water, which concentrates acid minerals such as nitrates, sulfides, chlorides, and fluorides from the source water. This acid ionized water has a myriad of external uses. It is discharged into the sink.
  ELECTROLISIS-WATER-IONIZER-AQUALIFE A range of pH settings from neutral to very alkaline or very acid is available at the touch of a button. The electrodes are cleaned in an automatic cleaning cycle.

Can i cook with alkaline ionized water ?

Yes, in fact your food will taste better and your body will assimilate the nutrients more readily. You will notice the difference especially at the most alkaline settings (higher pH): your greens will be greener, rice fluffier, tea and coffee tastier.

Can i store the water ? For how long

Yes, alkaline ionized water is best kept in an airtight glass or stainless steel container. It can be refrigerated or kept in a cool place. Avoid storage in aluminum containers. The alkaline properties will be retained for 1-2 weeks, but they are strongest when fresh (within the first 3 days). The antioxidant properties start to diminish after 18-24 hours. So for the best benefits, drink it within a day or so. Here are some typical results for refrigerated ionized water, stored in a sealed glass container:

What avantage does ionized water have over reverse osmosis or distillation ?

Unlike Reverse Osmosis (RO) and distillation, which remove all minerals leaving the water dead ionized water concentrates health-giving alkaline minerals like magnesium and calcium, after removing all harmful contaminants. Water from RO and distillation is very acid (pH 4.5-5.7) and so contributes to the over-acidity of our bodies. Alkaline water helps counteract acid / alkaline imbalance. Because RO and Distilled waters are mineral deficient and strongly acid, there are warnings from a number of physicians not to drink them on a sustained basis.While RO and distilled waters are strongly oxidizing, alkaline ionized water is a proven powerful antioxidant, equivalent to fresh squeezed orange juice.Having been completely demineralized, RO and distilled water are understandably

What can i use the acid ionized water for ?

Acid ionized water is destructive to bacteria and is astringent. As a result it has found widespread application commercially in: nurseries, surgeries, food preparation areas, sprout and wheatgrass growers, florists, hospitals, etc. In the home it’s an excellent cleansing and sterilizing agent, with uses in the kitchen, for hair and skin care, extending the life of flowers, promoting plant growth and many others

Do i need a plumber to install water ionizer ?

No. They come with a diverter kit that fits all standard kitchen faucets, and installs easily in minutes.

What is acid waste ? and body acidity ?

Every living cell within our body creates waste products. The nutrients from our food are delivered to each cell and they burn with oxygen to provide energy for us to live. The burned nutrients are the waste products. Whether you eat the best of foods or the worst, all foods generate waste products. Foods, when classified as good or bad, are based on the amount and quality of the acid waste products they produce.Our body will discharge this waste through urine and perspiration. Basically, all waste products are acidic, that is the reason our skin and urine have a low pH level. The real problem is that our body does not get rid of 100% of the waste it produces. Our life style, such as lack of rest, types of foods we eat and our environment helps produce these waste products, but does not help us eliminate them. In the vast majority of Westerners, diets heavy in meat, fried foods, soft drinks, and sweets build up acid salts in the body, as does stress and exposure to environmental pollutants.What happens to those non-disposed acid wastes? As they build up within our body, these waste products become solid wastes, such as cholesterol, fatty acid, kidney stones, etc. This accumulation of non-disposed acidic wastes is called acidosis. This condition accelerates the degeneration of cells, tissues, and the body as a whole. It accelerates the aging process. Drinking alkaline water makes it easier for the body to dispose of acid wastes. Just as the accumulation of wastes accelerates the aging process, the reduction of acid wastes retards the aging process.perhaps according to Sang Whang — even reversing it. Alkaline water is not a medicine to treat or cure any diseases but if consumed regularly, alkaline water reduces acid waste, allowing a natural health improvement.

Are there any cautions about drinking alkaline ionized water ?

You should start slowly. Set the controls to the lowest level and drink one to three glasses per day. Assuming the water agrees with you, increase the amount you drink and the level of ionization intensity. High levels of alkalinity — up to 9.5-10.0 — are best for drinking water; the highest levels can be used for cooking. In a few individuals, the detoxification effects from drinking alkaline ionized water can cause headaches and diarrhea for a short time. And for some older people, ionized water can tend, at first, to open the bowels. This is why a slow start is advised. Use the Purified Water setting for taking any medications that your doctor advises not to be taken with alkaline water. Do not drink the acid water. Having said all of the above, be aware that millions of Japanese have been drinking alkaline ionized water daily over the last 30 years. The water ionizer has been approved as a Household Medical Instrument by the government of Japan. In addition, test results on safety by the Welfare Ministry in Japan reveal no harmful influences on the body.

Is it ok for children to drink ionized water ? what about pet ?

Absolutely.  At the minimum level ( pH 7 – pH 8.5 ). Even nursing infants. And since children have usually not accumulated toxins in their bodies, they experience no detoxification symptoms. (a few adults might).Alkaline water is used for horses . commercial dairy operations  and for dogs and cats

How does ionized water affect athletes ?

In an extremely positive way, as you might expect from what has been said, Blood oxygen levels will rise in varying amounts with regular use of strong Ionized Water. This will increase stamina, endurance and provides the muscular tissues and organs with high amounts of oxygen. As we all know the human body often lacks oxygen, even athletes lack oxygen because of inadequate diets.If professional and amateur sports were to ever discover this, it would eventually become one of the most established benefits to athletes everywhere. This will happen, but acceptance of Ionized Water will take time.

Is the volume a Water ionizer produces per minutes important ? Are some water ionizers on the market stronger than other water ionizers ?

All home Water Ionizers currently manufactured deliver approximately 1 to 1-1/2 gallons per minute. There is very little difference between the strength of the various Water Ionizers on the market. Ionized Water with a pH of 10 or higher has only an unflattering taste, almost as though it is salty. The slower you run water through a Water Ionizer, the stronger it will become because the source water has more contact time with the electrodes. This is why the flow rate of Water Ionizers essentially does not matter. If you wish to drink strong Ionized Water then running the source water through it very slowly will accomplish a stronger Ionized water.

Do all water ionizer have a calcium port and what is its function ?

Some Water Ionizers such as the BAWELL Water Ionizer come with a port / compartment where calcium, magnesium and other minerals can be added, this boosts the intensity of the Ionized Water. Once minerals have been Ionized they are assimilated into the body more easily. The more minerals that are in the source water used to produce the Ionized Water, the stronger it will be. This is why Ionized Water CAN NOT be made from Distilled, Purified or Reverse Osmosis.

Do all water ionizers have a carbon filter and why do some carbon filter have silver impregnation ?

All continuous flow Home Water Ionizers on the market have a carbon filter. The BAWELL Water Ionizer comes with a silver impregnated carbon filter. The carbon in the BAWELL filter is silver impregnated in order to retard bacterial growth. The silver that is impregnated in the carbon will NOT leach into the water.
