Does a water ionizer need ETL Certification & Why?
All appliances need ETL – Engineering Testing Labs – or some other Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory’s certification of compliance with appliance safety laws, to be legally sold to
consumers. In Europe, CE – European Conformity is required. So yes, a water ionizer needs certification. But does ETL certification mean an ionizer is a quality machine? No, it just means that the electrical components in it won’t electrocute you or burn your house down. Air Water Life Ionizers – not associated with Life Ionizers in any way – makes a big deal out of having ETL certification. But the fact is, all water ionizers have it. Air Water Life is misleading consumers into believing that ETL certification makes their ionizer better, don’t believe it.
Air Water Life Ionizers is not Life Ionizers
Lots of people get confused about this, so it’s important to point out that Air Water Life Ionizers is not Life Ionizers. The reason their name sounds so much like ours is that Air Water Life is attempting to hijack Life Ionizers’ brand name by putting the words ‘air water’ in front of our name. Air Water Life sells cheaply made ionizers from China. Some of these machines, such as the Aqua Ionizer Deluxe, don’t even have a platinum coating on their plates. Machines like this are dangerous, and should not be sold, regardless of whether they have ETL certification or not.
Quality: What sets Life Ionizers apart from the rest
The seven plate Aqua Ionizer Deluxe has only 45 watts of power, which isn’t enough to make high quality, healthy water when trying to ionizing water. The seven plate Life Ionizers M7 can put out up to 450 watts of power. That’s 10 times the power of the Aqua Ionizer Deluxe! The reason the Aqua Ionizer Deluxe has so little power is that it doesn’t have any platinum on its plates. Because of this,if it actually had enough power to ionize water, it would generate titanium dioxide in that water, which is not good for your health.
Life Ionizers drop forges our plates, and then we apply our MAX Coat™ Technology on them using eight layers of medical grade platinum. That’s why we can put so much power in our ionizers. The plates are designed for high power, and high performance. With a Life Ionizer, you get the highest antioxidant potential in every glass of alkaline water at pH levels that are perfectly balanced for better health. With Air Water Life’s Aqua Ionizer Deluxe, you’re basically getting filtered tap water because the machine isn’t powerful enough to ionize your water. In fact, our $50 Pitcher of Life makes stronger antioxidant alkaline water than the $895 Aqua Ionizer Deluxe does! So don’t let Air Water Life’s ETL certification claim fool you. It takes power and platinum – not gimmicks – to make age-fighting antioxidant alkaline water.
