How Do Water Ionizers Work?

Source water first flows into the water ionizer.  Then through a process of electrodialysis the cations and anions are separated into two streams.  The pH level and -ORP is preceisely controlled with “settings” buttons, creating solutions that range from pH 3.5 – 11.0 in the case of the Aqua Ionizer Deluxe 7.0™

Quick Answer: Electrodialysis separates acidic and alkaline molecules creating either concentrated alkaline, or concentrated acidic water.

Water Ionizers Work by Concentrating the Healthy Minerals in Source Water

Water ionizers can dramatically change the properties of ordinary tap water.  Through the electrolysis process a concentration of alkaline and acidic water is formed.  This process also conditions the water to have a small molecule size, making it more hydrating for the body.

Through the electrodialysis process antioxidants are formed.  Because electrodialysis is an electrically induced process, it leaves the water buzzing with extra electrons, which give the water a negative charge.

The negative charge of the water, is measured in ORP.  Water ionizers generate water with a high negative ORP, because it concentrates water with spare electrons, or electron donors.  These electron-donors have the ability to neutralize free-radicals, and remove them from your body

Negative -ORP is highly reactive, and dynamic, and does not “stay” in solution for more than a few days before returning to a neutral, or positive state.  This why ionized water is best consumed immediately after it’s produced.  Ionized water will ‘go flat’ and loose and antioxidant qualities with a few days.

You can see the ‘off gassing’ of ionized water as oxygen bubbles begin to collect in a glass of ionized water.  As more and more of these oxygen bubbles collect and are ‘off gassed’ the -ORP will drop.


In addition to the water ionization process (electrodialsysis) many water ionizers, including the Aqua Ionizer Deluxe 7.0™ and Aqua Ionizer Deluxe 9.0™ include large carbon filters, which remove chlorine, organic and dissolved solids.  You can also add advanced outside filtration such as our tri-part, 3 stage filtration add-on.

To put it simply, water ionizers work by concentrating the “good minerals and molecules” and remove the bad ones – creating an antioxidant rich solution that also helps in restoring and maintaining the pH balance of your body!
