Many home water ionizer owners use their machines without pre-filtration. By doing so they risk drinking unsafe water or destroying their machine! Tap water quality varies widely. It can contain toxins that the ionizer’s filters weren’t designed to remove. Another big problem is hard water. Most ionizer’s warranties are voided by hard water damage.
Life Ionizers with our Clean Tek anti-scale (included with all Life Ionizers) technology are guaranteed to work with hard water

Chloramine is used by municipal water facilities as a replacement for chlorine to disinfect water supplies. Chloramines are harmful, and are not treated by conventional filters.
