Alkaline Plus PH Ionizer Pitcher by WellBlue


Product Description

The Alkaline Plus PH Ionizer Pitcher by WellBlue - the Best Portable Water Ionizer Pitcher I have ever tested!

  • The Alkaline Plus PH Ionizer Pitcher lasts the longest, filters chlorine and heavy-metals out of the water and produces the best pH and ORP!
  • Raises pH and lightly Ionizes the water
  • Produces Negative ORP [as strong as -300, transforming regular water into antioxidant water.
  • A slow flow through active carbon filters the water nicely removing chlorine, organic impurities, odor and many other chemicals.
  • BPA free! Made with safe, AS & ABS food-grade plastics.
  • Reduces heavy metals: The filter permanently absorbs metals, such as lead, copper and aluminum, so your drinking water will be cleaner.
  • Improves taste of water.
  • Contains alkalinizing minerals which will help you alkalize your body. There are four main ingredients: Active carbon, ion-exchange resin, ORP balls [magnetized ceramic balls], Magnesium balls.
  • The filter will last about 150-200 liters [up to 70 gallons].
  • Best filtration is at the rate of 1 quart at a time

How do portable water ionizer pitchers work?

Portable water ionizers use a technology developed over a 10-year period by Dr. Hayashi and others working in the water ionizer industry. The technology uses magnesium and magnetized ceramics in such a combination that excites the water to ionize spontaneously without electricity. There are several products that have sprung up using this technology, and I have tested just about all of them. Some don't work at all [or very poorly], but some of these portable water ionizers will lightly ionize and give you a slight raise in pH and about -100 ORP [which is a fair amount of antioxidants for a portable device, but not anything close to what an electric water ionizer can do]. The Alkaline Plus Water Filter Pitcher by WellBlue is the best portable water ionizer pitcher that I've ever tested. It will bring the water [even reverse osmosis water] up to 9.5 pH and the antioxidant levels to an exceptional -100 to -400, depending on how much water you ionize at one time; whether or not you give the filter a break between filtrations; and how close to filter expiration you are getting.

The Alkaline Plus PH Pitcher Will...

  • Filter up to 1/2 gallon [2 quarts/liters] at a time
  • Raise pH and lightly ionize the water
  • Produce Negative ORP [as strong as -300 and I've seen it up to -400 ORP at times], transforming regular water into antioxidant water.
  • Filter the water nicely with active carbon: removes chlorine, organic impurities, odor and many other chemicals.
  • BPA free! Made with safe, AS & ABS food-grade plastics.
  • Soften the tap water: Ion exchange resin remove hardness [Ca+,Mg+].
  • Reduce heavy metals: The filter permanently absorbs metals, such as lead, copper and aluminum, so your drinking water will be cleaner.
  • Improve taste of water.
  • Contains alkalinizing minerals which will help you alkalize your body.
  • The filter will last about 150-200 liters [up to 70 gallons].
  • Timer: This is more of a decorative piece rather than a serious timer. I think it's more effective to just use a calendar, because that's all this little counter does. It calculates the number of days, based on the number of users you select. See the below for instructions. [We do not guarantee these timer pieces.] 

Instructions for the Alkaline Plus Portable Water Ionizer Pitcher -- Setting or Re-Setting the Timer

Push and hold the set button until you see one or more faces in the screen. Then push and let go several times until you see the number of faces you want. One face per gallon of daily expected use should give you the right time to change the filter. At one gallon per day the filter should need changing in two months. You don't need to use the timer to know this. A calendar or mental note will do. The timer is electronic and shouldn't get wet. It is not a guaranteed feature, and is there for convenience and/or decoration only, as it has no relation to the proper functioning of the filter. Once you see the right number of faces, then push/hold once more until you see the face(s) stop flashing and you see a filter icon to the right of it. Now it's set. If you set it to one gallon per day then in about two months whenever you press/hold the start button and look at the icon -- it will have an "X" over the filter. After one week of showing an "X" over the filter it will go to a blank screen awaiting you to re-program it. It's not suggested to store the pitcher's lid in the refrigerator if the lid has a timer. What could happen is that condensation could possibly form inside the timer and short out the electronics.

Instructions for the Alkaline Plus Portable Water Ionizer Pitcher -- Getting the Best Results

Because the Alkaline Plus Water Ionizer Filter Pitcher by WellBlue requires the ability to add alkalizing minerals to the water. In order to work, it needs to be moistened-up ahead of time and it needs a break between filtrations. After the initial set up rinsing the filter isn't necessary if the filter is still wet or moist from the last pouring. However if it dries out it tends to get less results than when moist. So maybe just pour just one cup [the first thing in the morning] and then after that maybe filter a quart per hour or two [something like that] rather than letting it dry out during the day.

It also may work differently according to what your source water is. For instance if your source is reverse osmosis, then the minerals in the filter will surely deplete faster than if you use regular tap water.

After lots of experimentation, here is what I've found:

  • The magnesium balls inside the filter are time-release and the filter must be moistened up prior to getting good results with it. Then the moist filter allows magnesium to be released in the right proportions.
  • If you filter a quart or less at a time, the WellBlue ionizing pitcher will ionize better than if you fill it to its capacity.
  • If it's going to be a long time in between uses [over 3 hours], store the WellBlue filter in such a way as to keep the filter from drying out. [The magnesium inside the filter needs to be moistened up about 30-60 minutes ahead of each use if you allow it to dry out.]
  • To test it you should make sure to use the right test reagent or strips. If the testing strips or reagent doesn't have a wide enough range it won't give reliable results. The free pH strips we offer through our site will work fine to give you accurate results.
  • If you're goiing to be not using it for a while [i.e., days, weeks...] then go ahead and let it dry out.
  • To dry the WellBlue filter out [for storage]set it, unsealed, in the refrigerator for a few days. Then it will be dry, and you can store it in the pitcher till you're ready to use it again.
  • When you are newly using the filter or you're ready to use the WellBlue Pitcher again, after storing it, activate the magnesium time-release balls inside the filter by pouring a cup of water [always cold water...never hot] into the pitcher. Then wait about 30-60 min. and it will be ready to go.
  • If you want to supply ionized water to several people we suggest you use two filters alternately, or buy a couple of WellBlue pitchers.

What causes the variables in the pitcher's ability to ionize?

    The source water causes variables. Frequency: The filter ionizes by way of adding magnesium in the presence of magnetized ceramics. The magnesium balls are time-release and only the outer coating softens up to allow magnesium to be released a little at a time. If the filter is used moderately [1 liter per hour or two] then it performs the best. If it's used a lot, then the ionization drops off, because there isn't enough free [softened] magnesium. If it dries out, then the first pouring will be less ionization. However in an hour or two it will be back to peak performance.

FDA and Laboratory TestingSummary of what the Tests are Saying: The first test reports show that using the Alkaline Plus PH Pitcher s removes chlorine, and heavy metals. [Note: A slow-flow through activated carbon will also remove many other chemicals.] The filter also increases the pH of the water. The second and third tests certify that the plastic materials used in making the pitcher and reservoir [bin] are food-grade, FDA-approved to be non-leaching and safe.
