129 These promoters of natural alkaline water filters are almost as bad as the sellers of additives which raise the pH of tap water to make it alkaline. The fact is that these natural non-electric alkaline water ionizer systems or filters are basically your old fashioned water filter like the Brita filter or singe stage inline filter, with an additional mineral adding filter which raises the pH of the water. This will make the water alkaline, but it will not incorporate any of the ionized alkaline water benefits which scientist have discovered. Only alkaline ionized water created by the water electrolysis process has those 3 health improving properties. Simply adding minerals or chemicals to raise the pH of your tap water is not the same thing, can be potentially life threatening, and does not incorporate any health benefits. Unfortunately, the water ionizer industry itself is very manipulative, companies like Kangen-Enagic spread misinformation to make people think they need to pay exorbitantly high prices for the alkaline water machines which actually will work and deliver the health benefits. They prey upon one of the most helpless sectors of society, the elderly, which are very vulnerable and susceptible to in person manipulative sales techniques. Other water ionizer companies have sprang up and attempt to ride on the back of Kangen by offering a competing machine at about 70% of the price of the Kangen SD501, saving the customer about $1000 to $1500 dollars over the Kangen unit, yet they collude among each other using misinformation and scare tactics such as poisonous water ionizer plates in an attempt to make people think they need to still pay a high price for the
. The truth is that there has never been 1 documented case of "poisoning" from water ionizer plates. In many cases, these companies are just as bad if not worse than the Kangen Enagic sales representatives. They offer a competing product at a slightly lower price, and misinform consumers with reports of titanium and platinum poisoning. They also deceive people by focusing on irrelevant issues like the number of plates, always increasing the number of plates inside their machines from 5 plates, to 7, now 9 plates, and even 11 and 15 plate models. Always making the customer think that they need to pay more for that water ionizer with more plates, is a common trick used to keep their profit margins at $2000 to $2500 per sale.
The fact is that over the past several decades, tens of millions of people worldwide have received alkaline water ionizer benefits from 3 and 5 plate water ionizer designs. If you are a fan of Kangen / Enagic water ionizers, and you have been drinking their water and you have noticed health benefits, take a look at their line of ionizers, you will see most of them have 5 plates inside. This constant push by water ionizer scam artist companies to deceive consumers with ever increasing numbers of plates, ever higher electrical wattage, and manipulation via scare tactics, keeps their profits high at consumers expense. As I stated before, it is the elderly who are the biggest consumers of water ionizers in the Unites States, and they are one of the most vulnerable sectors of society. Water ionizer companies know this, and will continue to use manipulative sales tactics to deceive people and keep the prices and their by their profit margins high. Only and informed consumer, who does the proper research, and who has common sense, will understand this truth. This website is here to shed light on this manipulative industry dominated by misinformation and scare tactics exploiting one of the most vulnerable sectors of American society.
California continues to suffer through a fourth year of water shortages, bordered by the largest body of water on earth. The crisis has encouraged residents to once again wonder if the Pacific Ocean is the answer to the state's water woes. Some are pushing for additional desalination plants like those used in water-starved Israel and Australia to convert ocean water into unlimited fresh water. Coastal Santa Barbara turned to desalination during a devastating five-year drought in the late 1980s, but by the time a new plant was ready for operation in 1992, heavy rains had returned. The $35 million facility ran for a few weeks before being shuttered. That's because the desalination process is not only potentially harmful to marine life, but removing salt by pushing salt water through membranes takes far more energy than simply pulling fresh water from inland sources. All that energy use is not only counter to the state's push for lower emissions, but it only seems economical during the worst of a drought. As Santa Barbara reactivates the plant this summer, water bills in the area are expected to increase by 40 percent.
Since California will be using desalination, they will need an Alkaline Water Machine to return the minerals to their water
Compared to local freshwater sources, desalination is certainly energy expensive. But it's only slightly more costly than other options available during drought conditions. That's why Santa Barbara is spending another $40 million to reopen its plant, and why 17 others are in the works along the state's coast. In Carlsbad, California, Poseidon Water is opening a $1 billion plant that will be the largest in the U.S. when it is completed in the fall. In a recent Wall Street Journal article, CEO Carlos Riva defended desalination plants against those that worry that they represent a step backward in the state's efforts to reduce carbon emissions, pointing out that the plant will "use less energy than one of the data center that are being built, and nobody claims that they are somehow immoral." According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, data centers are expected to consume 140 billion kilowatt hours of electricity a year by 2020—the output of 34 large coal power plants. According to the Pacific Institute, the Carlsbad plant will take 750 megawatt hours per day, so more than 500 equivalent plants would have to be constructed to match the energy cost of our Facebook and Google habits... 324
