What good is healthy water if it isn’t also clean water? To that end, be thorough in your research. Watch out for slick marketing. One company offers “customized filtration." All they really do is give you a standard (and unsightly) three filter array (installed separate from your ionizer) regardless of where you live. You end up with the extra hassle and cost of five filters and external housings to change annually. If you don’t, you void your warranty. Another company touts .01 micron as its “UltraPlus,” best solution. A .01 micron filter sounds good, and can remove microbes, but is lousy at broad contaminant removal. We have sold them for 15 years and only recommend them if you are on untreated (well) water. Read on and you’ll learn about our UltraWater technology — the most thoroughly tested and safest option available.
