water ionizer to chose?
You may wonder if you should pay $4000 +Tax and go with Kangen Enagic and use the Multi-Level-Marketing to generate profit.
Do you know that Enagic sells about a thousand water ionizers per month? And yes, that includes the machines purchased from the dealers themselves? How many do you think you will sell? Do you think if Enagic costs $4,000 and Tyent is only $2,000 producing the same quality water, using less energy, backed up with at least 5 year warranty (extendable to 10 years) and 20 year plate warranty, people will still choose Enagic? Think again
We can dedicate a whole web site to the Water Ionizer War, but let's talk only facts and science.
Well, I have personally heard Enagic salesman to explain that the Kangen water keeps it's properties longer than the water from any other brand. Let me tell you something. I have a Masters Degree in Electrical Engineering and my specialty is Electro-technologies. I understand those machines; I understand the principles they use to produce the water, and I can tell you that how negative the ORP will become and how high the pH will be depends on the parameters of the intake water and the water ionizer, but once the water is out of the machine, it only depends on the temperature and the minerals in the water for how long the properties will last.
Here is what Kangen sites say about the properties:
The alkaline properties will be retained for 1-2 weeks, but they are strongest when fresh (immediately out of the machine is best but certainly within the first 3 days).
The antioxidant properties start to diminish after
Here is what Tyent web-site says about the properties:
The Higher pH (alkaline properties) will last approximately 1-2 weeks. The Antioxidant (hydroxyl ions) will last approximately 18-24 hours. The smaller molecule cluster size will last approximately 1-3 months.
So, I do not know where the Enagic salesmen are coming with this false conclusion May be because they have to sell machines to offset the price of their machine that is way overpriced because of the Multi-Level-Marketing with 8 level scheme:
I do not want to enter in those arguments that state this ionized is the best or that ionizer is the best, all depending on the sponsor of the web-site. When I first started researching water ionizers, I saw many web sites of distributors trying to promote their product as the best on the market. So I did my homework; I did an extended research on the technologies, principles, and properties of most of the machines on the market, and because I have the technical skills and the education to understand and read between the lines, I ended up as a distributor of Tyent USA. I'm deeply convincent that Tyent Water Ionizers are one of the best on the market for their quality and all the new technologies they use.
Because everybody is trying to sell their product as the best, I just did not trust what they say. Especially about behind the scene things. So I got familiar with the guts of the Tyent Water Ionizer first. Here is an independent video that you can see the inside of the machines, too.
If you are familiar with ORP and pH meters, you know that there is a special preparation and calibration needed in order for the measurements to be accurate. I have not seen that to be done on the videos on any web-site. I do not say they do not do it, but they do not at least say they have done it.
So, being a person trained to perform accurate and valid tests because seeing is believing, I did the following:
First I treated the meter with electrode cleansing solution for at least 30 minutes according to the instructions. Then I used two buffers (pH 7.01 & pH 10.01) to calibrate the meter and to make sure the pH readings are accurate. And then I used OPR 200-275 mV test solution to make sure the ORP readings are accurate.
I measured the ORP and the pH of the tap water that goes into the Tyent Water Ionizer and the readings were pH 7.42 and ORP +234 mV.
Then I useed the 2nd alkali setting on Tyent MMP-7070 to produce water and took the measurements. The readings were pH 9.66 and ORP -356 mV. I waited for an hour to see if the statement of the Enagic salesman was true that Tyent water will lose all the negative ORP in the first 20 minutes after it is produced. After an hour, the readings were pH 9.66 and ORP -300 mV. So, as we can see the Enagic's statement was not true and the water keeps its properties no mater what water ionizer is used as far as it can produce quality water in a first place.
I kept a gallon of water in the refrigerator in a plastic
container for 24 hours and took measurements again to see
As we know the ORP is the one that gets lost faster than the pH and molecule cluster size.
If we calculate it relatively to the original ORP of the source water, we get:
Therfore the water produced with Tyent MMP-7070 Water Ionizer is even better than the characteristics that Enagic has listed in the table above. The Tyent Water lost only 43% of the ORP for a day compared to Enagic's statemnet of 72% ORP loss.
Somebody may ask "How can the Tyent water is better than Kangen Enagic water?".
Let me lay out some facts here:
Both Enagic SD-501 and Tyent MMP-7070 have 7 inch long plates, but Tyent uses mesh plates that increase the path of the water and mix it up more evenly when it travels through the electrodes.
It is true that Enagic uses twice the electrical power than Tyent, but what they do not tell you is the Enagic uses transformer. Ionizers do not like heat, and transformers get hot, overuse electricity, and are not environmentally friendly. Tyent uses Switched-mode power supply (SMPS) that stays cool, clean, and efficient. This power system was invented by Tyent and other companies are trying to license the same SMPS power system. On top of that Enagic SD-501 has twice the water flow rate than Tyent MMP-770. Therefore, there is more energy applied per amount of water in Tyent Water Ionizers.
Automatic water flow control is a big plus for Tyent Water Ionizers, something that Enagic SD-501 does not have. Somebody may say "So what?" Here is what: The water flow depends on your faucet, and it will be hard to get consistent results with Enagic. Have you noticed that very often when you watch comparative tests videos the higher setting levels are selected? This is because if you turn the faucet on with very slow water stream with Enagic, the water will flow slowly and will become more alkaline. The real test is not how high pH the machine can produce, but how negative the ORP is when the pH is around 9.5, which is good for drinking. Who cares if it can produce -450 mV ORP when the pH is 11? Nobody will drink that anyway, it is not recommended.
Enagic fans say it can produce very high and very low pH levels but they conveniently forget to tell you that it uses special saline solution that comes in bottles with warning "Do Not Drink":
Enagic and other water ionizer manufacturers would say that this kind of solution is needed because the water is not a good conductor of electricity. Really? Then try plugging a hair drier and take it with you while taking a bath, and see what will happen. Just kidding. Do not even try it! But you got the picture how the sales reps are trying to justify things that are not exactly right and are done not exactly to be healthy, but to show higher numbers.
The Tyent MMP-7070 Turbo can produce those pH levels without any additives in the water.
So Enagic DS-501 is not any better than Tyent MMP-7070, and it is twice expensive because of the Multi-Level-Marketing.
