Things You Need to Consider When Getting an Alkaline Water Dispenser

Living in an area in Singapore where the water is acidic should be reason enough for you to purchase an alkaline water ioniser machine in order to neutralize the acidity. However, there are other reasons why you should get an alkaline water ionizer for your home.

Drinking alkaline water has a lot of benefits for your body. Some of the benefits of alkaline water include neutralizing the body’s acidity and promoting the growth of probiotic bacteria in the gut, which is good news for those suffering from hyperacidity or acid reflux.

Deciding what kind of alkaline water ionizer to buy, so you can drink water of higher pH level at your own home here in Singapore can be an overwhelming decision. While the physical appearance of the ionizing machine will itself not affect the water quality, the look and feel should be considered along with its capability. This makes the appearance just as important as what is underneath it, along with other things that you should look for in a water filter.

Brand and Provider Credibility

The credibility of your brand provider will be the first thing you need consider because alkaline water is a major health demand in Singapore. Be sure to look up online reviews rating the different brands before buying them, and always check for product quality consistency.

A good rule of thumb to remember is that companies who manufacture their own products will most likely make better products than the companies that outsource their manufacturing, so checking where the water machine is made is a good idea.

Ionizer Capability

What electrolysis does is concentrate the alkaline minerals that are already in the water to increase the water’s alkalinity, so accessing the full benefits of alkaline water will mean purchasing an alkaline water ioniser machine with a good capability. If you have a larger family, the machine should be able to handle 10 gallons a day.
When shopping for an alkaline water ionizer machine, be sure to ask about the minimum and maximum pH levels for both acidic and alkaline water. The strongest level for acidic water should be somewhere between 2.5 and 3.0 pH, while alkaline water pH levels should be somewhere between 11.0 and 11.5.

You should also check the electrolysis chamber and the transformer, which are the two major parts of an alkaline water ionizer. A good rule of thumb to follow when getting an alkaline water ionizer machine is to check that these two parts are large enough to handle ten gallons a day.

Other parts that are vital to the alkaline water machine Larger plates and transformers with a minimum of two hundred square inches is a good start that means more potent alkaline water produced at any one given time.

Water Filter

The alkaline water machine’s water filter is also another vital part that ensures the water quality needed. The filter separates the chemicals or debris in your tap water. In some models, certain minerals that increase the water’s alkalinity are also re-introduced in the water.

Ideally, the machine’s water filter should last you for 2,500 gallons. Watch out for companies whose filters only last for half that as you can expect to buy more filters to replace regularly.

You should also make sure your filter is designed to sift potentially dangerous chemicals that can be found in tap water, such as rust, chlorine, fluoride, and even mercury or arsenic.

Longevity and Ease of Maintenance

Another thing you need to consider when choosing an alkaline water ioniser machine is how long it will last. A good machine should be able to last you for a few years with minimal maintenance, with only a few regular filter changes every so often.

As with any machine, a machine only lasts as long as it is maintained properly, and a water machine that may be poor in quality may acquire rust after being used for a long time. However, a high quality water machine will last you much longer and will be much easier as well as safer to maintain.

As much as possible, get a water machine that you can easily clean and maintain on your own. The easiest way to keep your water machine in good condition is by simply reversing the plate polarity every once in a while. You can also manually disconnect the machine from the power source to clean it by hand, if you are familiar with its inner workings.

Unit and Brand Warranty/Additional Services

The last factor that you should consider (though by no means the least) is the unit’s warranty. Read the fine print before making any decisions to make sure you get a good grasp on how well the company stands behind their products.

Because your best option is to buy a water machine with a lifetime guarantee on both the labor costs (for installation) and the mechanical parts, be sure to buy from a credible manufacturer in Singapore to get only the best deals on your alkaline water machine.

While having the additional costs of an expert in the initial purchase will set you back, this will take care of both your plumbing and electrical needs (i.e., adding new pipelines for the tap water to pass through or adding power outlets) in the future.

Most companies will provide free installation and maintenance services, which will make things easier and more convenient for you. They will also be likely to provide an expert to help put your dispenser in place.
