Alkalizes and Mineralizes: The Ion™ Carafe filters out chlorine and other bad tasting compounds, and then adds Calcium and Magnesium to water so you get important minerals in every glass! Once minerals are added, the Ion™ Carafe makes them highly bioavailable to you by raising the pH of the water to a range of about 9 (+ or -0.5) which studies show improves mineral absorption in the body. The water is also charged with Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) - antioxidant hydroxyl ions which can neutralize free radicals that damage DNA.
Tastes Great: The Ion™ Carafe uses our unique filter cube which contains media tested by National Testing Labs (NTL) and proven effective for odor removal and the reduction of chlorine. Alkaline water made by the Ion™ Carafe tastes slightly sweeter and more refreshing than regular bottled water.
About Alkaline Water: Increasing the pH of drinking water from 7 to a range of about 9 to 10 has many health benefits attributed to the addition of bicarbonates to our body’s health system. Our radical new Alkalizing media raises the pH of water, but does not allow the pH to elevate to undesirable levels even after extended contact. You get the benefits of anti-oxidant alkaline water and essential minerals in every glass!
It is recommended to drink 5 glasses of Alkaline Water pH between 9-10 spread out throughout the day, but not just before or with meals.
IMPORTANT: USE COLD WATER ONLY - Designed for use with Microbiologically safe water only.
Note: When testing the pH of Alkaline Water please use either a calibrated electronic pH test meter or the Aqua ION™ pH Test Kit. The use of pH test strips are unreliable and most often produce inaccurate results!

The Aquaspace® Compound has been tested and certified by the National Testing Laboratories for the reduction of organic, industrial, and agricultural pollutants including chlorine, chloroform, herbicides, pesticides, and heavy metals such as lead. In addition, Aquaspace removes unpleasant colors, tastes, odors, sediment and turbidity. It does not remove beneficial dissolved minerals that are essential for good health.
The Ion™ Compound has been designed to raise the filtered water’s pH to a value of 9.0 (+ or -0.5). This media will also lowers the Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) of the water by -500 mill volts! Less ORP means less oxidizing.
||Disposable; Replacement Filter Model: ALKR-787, should be replace every 45 gallons or 2 months, whichever occurs first.
