How ionizers work - The process of electrolysis

  • Water ionizers run water over positive and negative electrodes in a process known as electrolysis.
  • The electrodes ionize the water into negative ions and positive ions—creating acidic and alkaline water.
  • Alkaline water is distributed through the flexihose of the ionizer or in an Undersink set up through a tap, while Acidic water is distributed through a different tubing. You can get acid or alkaline water based on the mode that you select in the menu of the ionizer.


  • What water ionizers do is break large water molecule clusters apart, creating smaller clusters of 5 to 6 molecules.
  • Water molecules that are smaller clustered can enter body cells and tissues much easier and faster, by that hydrate the body better and deeper. The water is therefore more easily absorbed at the cellular level. This means not only improved hydration but also effective detoxification, as well as improved delivery of nutrients at a cellular level.
Before Ionization, water molecules typically cluster in groups of 11 to 16 molecules

Both alkaline and acidic water have benefits.

  • Alkaline water is ideal for drinking, cleaning vegetables, and cooking. Its antioxidant properties promote health.
  • Acidic water is a natural cleanser and excellent organic skin and hair toner.
  • The astringent properties of acidic water in the 4.0 to 6.0 range are ideal for cleaning and toning the skin.
  • Used as a rinse when washing your hair, acidic water helps the scalp, reduces tangles and gives hair a radiant shine. It also helps the hair and skin of pets.
  • In higher concentrations, acidic water has strong disinfecting properties and can be used for cleaning around the house and for cleaning toothbrushes, hands, and even as a mouth wash.

Double Duty!

Only water ionizers both clean and ionize your drinking water for better health.
