A great alkaline water ionizer machine, this model definitely has it all. Its pH value range is more flexible than the usual units but does not go beyond what you consider alkali. The ORP value is enough to make sure that your drinking water is safe and the plates are of high quality and durability, so you know that you will not have to replace this with a new model so soon.
The ceramic ion membrane was crafted with precision in Japan and is a temperature resistant model, which means that it is non-toxic as well. It has an automatic 10-second electrolysis chamber cleansing mechanism.
After you drain the alkaline water, you can prop it up and have another batch again. You can select seven levels of different pH values for your water up to 11, but we recommend going only up to 10 so it is as alkali as possible.
This model by IONtech (IT-580) is decently priced at $584.00, which is a mid-range value for this sort of equipment. The thing is, however, is that it comes with a free filter already pre-built so it is a good deal nonetheless. There are a lot of models out there that do not come with a filter and is within the same price range, so you are better off buying this one if you do not want to go through the hassle of looking, scouting, and buying your own filter.
The IT-580 by IONtech does not present a lot of workable versatility. Everything that was built-in cannot be replaced since they were hard crafted. If you are going to need an upgrade in the future, it would have to be a complete replacement.
Though this does present some benefits like durability, you are not going to have an easy time when something breaks inside. It will be a lot tougher to find exactly what broke and you probably will not have the chance to get it fixed.
This alkaline water ionizer machine’s filter is sufficient but has been reported to break easily. We are not entirely sure whether this is a production mistake since the one that came to us for review purposes did not show any signs of breaking. You definitely have to check it out for yourself to see if it will break, but we highly suggest that you have a backup filter just in case it does.
We give the IONtech IT-580: 4 stars out of 5.
It has enough benefits to justify the mid-range pricing and comes with a free filter and pH test. The fact that all of the internal parts were manufactured in the USA should give everyone an idea of how high quality it is. Though the materials were made in Japan, they were in high precision manufacturing labs, so there will not be any issues with those.
You have to keep in mind, however, that once something breaks inside, you are more likely to replace the entire machine itself since none of the parts are open to replacement. Definitely worth a buy overall.
