Would you buy a $4000 appliance that can destroy itself? What if that appliance could destroy itself and the damage wasn’t covered by your warranty? This shocking surprise is exactly what awaits you if you buy a Kangen Water® machine. According to the Enagic Kangen® website, damage caused by Enagic’s electrolysis enhancer is not covered by the warranty. If the chemical enhancer destroys your machine, it costs $800 to fix it. Enagic will cover the damage under your warranty, but it will cost you an extra $400. For the extra $400, only one instance of electrolysis enhancer damage will be covered. If you want subsequent damage covered- that’s an extra $400, which again is only for one instance of chemical enhancer damage.
What is Kangen water’s® Electrolysis Enhancer®?
Kangen’s® Electrolysis Enhancer is salt water. It is sold by Enagic for $18.00, which gets you six bottles. It probably costs Enagic a few pennies per bottle to make it. You can actually make it yourself by adding a half-teaspoon of salt to about 16 ounces of water. When the Electrolysis Enhancer is used in the kangen water® machine, it makes “Strong” Kangen Water, which contains chlorine. You can’t drink strong kangen water, its poisonous. The Kangen machine also produces hydrogen gas when used with the chemical enhancer.
The use of the electrolysis enhancer in the kangen water® machine has two possible consequences.
1) It can destroy the plates, which will cost you $800 to fix.
2) It can poison your kangen® drinking water with chlorine
According to Enagic’s® website, the plates in the kangen water machine will be destroyed if the machine is “moved improperly” while the salt water electrolysis enhancer is in the machine. Enagic® does not say what this “improper movement” might be. So if you have a Kangen machine, and you use the electrolysis enhancer in your machine, don’t move it while it’s working!
Can Life Water Ionizers be damaged by electrolysis enhancer?
No, Life’s drinking water ionizers don’t use electrolysis enhancer. We recommend you never run salt water in a drinking water ionizer because it can put poisonous chlorine in your drinking water. Life water ionizers are designed to last a lifetime, so we don’t use dangerous chemicals in them that can destroy the machine’s plates. With a Life Ionizer, the plates in your machine are guaranteed for life, period.
If you want a water ionizer that generates strong alkaline and acidic water, we recommend you get a batch ionizer. These machines make ionized water one batch at a time. I have been making strong ionized water using salt and water with a Life HydraCide batch ionizer for two years now. The plates are still going strong – because they are made for producing strong ionized water.
In fact, you can get a Life Drinking water ionizer AND a Life HydraCide batch ionizer for less than you’d pay for one kangen water® machine! This way, you have the right machine for making healthy drinking water, and the right machine for making powerful cleaning and disinfection water. (Trust me on this, if you have mold, you need the Hydracide machine.)
