Alkaline Water Machines – Country of Manufacture
Country of Manufacture
There are no water ionizers manufactured in the U.S. Most ionizers are made in Korea or Japan, but cheaper units are made in China.
You should only buy ionizers made in Korea or Japan because both of those countries have certification programs in place to certify water ionizers for medical use.
These certifications are your guarantee that the ionizer you’re buying has met strict standards for use as medical devices.
Alkaline Water Ionizers made in China
Ionizers made in China are never certified as medical devices, so there are no guarantees for the quality of chinese-made machines. Another problem with Chinese made products is lead. China is the number one country for lead tainted products – and that includes medical devices. China has severe pollution problems, and because of this toxic contamination is common in Chinese products.
