Residue from Ionized Water

It happens.  It’s completely natural, normal and fairly common.  It’s a white residue or film on ionized water containers and it’s a good sign that your water ionizer is doing its job.  Depending on your source water you may see a little or you may see a lot.  At some point, most people will notice a white film – ionized alkaline water residue – on the container or glass they use for ionized alkaline water.

A Few of My Meters

It’s been awhile since I posted my original article on ORP meters.  Since that time not a lot has changed.  I’ve spent more money on newer meters, replacement probes, solutions and materials for conditioning them and enhancing performance.  My position remains the same.  Buyer be aware of what you’re getting into.

Recently, one water ionizer company that had been offering these meters for sale to customers made the decision to stop selling ORP meters.  It was no surprise to me.  I was actually shocked when I first realized that they were offering them for sale.  Here’s why the company decided to STOP selling ORP meters – and why you won’t find water ionizer companies or dealers offering them for sale…

ph_levels_question


You want alkaline water at 10.0 or better? No problem! You want that 2.5 acid water? Well, that’s a whole other story…

When we first started selling water ionizers my biggest concern was returns on units because they didn’t produce water at high enough PH levels due to source water issues. We have yet to process a return on a water ionizer that failed to produce water with PH levels within the ranges expected by the customer.
