With bottled water out-selling carbonated drinks for the first time, there is no limit to the options being made available to consumers by money-hungry providers and most of it is NOT what it claims to be! Bottled water dominates more square footage in the grocery story than any other product! More and more “alkaline” waters and more and more”hydrogen infused” options are hitting the shelves and the $30.00 per gallon price tag doesn’t seem to be slowing anybody down! Wise consumers are looking at affordable, long-term options so that they can have an endless supply of alkalized water in their own home and these wise consumers are looking to consumer ionization appliances as a result. These wise consumers also understand that by purchasing a long-term solution; they save thousands and thousands of dollars over the long run.
If you’re a wise consumer and you’re considering the purchase of an ionization appliance, it is SO IMPORTANT that you complete the process by making a wise decision about what you invest in! Not all ionizer providers are created equal and not every “ionizer” will provide the results you’re hoping for. Here are a few things to consider when you’re looking to invest in a long-term water solution for health and finances:
Longevity. Because consumers are rapidly catching on to the benefits of drinking cleaner, healthier water and more alkaline water and the ionizer industry is beginning to boom as a result. Unfortunately, there are many start-up and 3rd party ionizer companies chasing the market, promising the moon and selling the truth short online. Look for a company that has been in the market long enough to be established AND long enough to have proven to stand behind their product and their warranties, one that offers reliable and reasonable service inside of the U.S. and one that can speak with experience about the life-cycle expectations of your unit. a quality ionizer SHOULD last for 20+ years with simple, routine maintenance. Look for a company that has the stay-power to be there for you long after your investment and one that already has a track record to “prove” how long your investment should last!
Reputable. There are good things and not-so-good things about the Internet. One of the not-so-good things is that it’s easy to “look good on paper”. Dealing with strangers on the Internet over ANY investment but particularly a sizable investment is never a good idea. Many of the 3rd party ionizer companies that you see online have already undergone name changes a few times and some have the worst Better Business Bureau ratings possible; that’s saying a whole lot when so many of them have been in business for just a few years. It’s not a good sign OR a good investment to put your money with a company that has already proven to be a problem for other consumers. Look for a company that has been around the block a few times and one that you can go directly to for any concerns or problems that you have.
USA Focused. Most (if not all) ionizers are manufactured outside of the US. The majority of the units that you see on the market today are manufactured by the same Korean manufacturer under different labels. The company that you may buy from is likely a 3rd party representative and not the manufacturer at all and in that case, they don’t manufacture, service or warranty the units at a;;. When services is needed, your unit must be shipped back to the original manufacturer in Korea, and at your expense. Look for a USA focused ionizer company that will actually stand behind and service your investment here in the United States. In other words, look for a direct manufacturer and NOT a 3rd party sales entity.
Sight Unseen. If you’re going to make the investment in ionization technology for you and your family, it’s not a good idea purchase sight unseen. You should have the chance to see it (and try it) for yourself before you buy. Although one company may give you the opportunity to see and try for yourself most of them don’t. Each ionizer on the market is vastly different from another and it’s not reasonable for you to expect that what you find online is like what you’ve already seen and tried for yourself! Consumers don’t buy vehicles that way…”test driving” one brand and then buying a completely different vehicle without ever seeing or driving it first. That is a risky approach no matter how large or how small the price tag is and it makes no financial sense whatsoever. Look for a company that will allow you to see (and try) the product for yourself before you buy!
Warranty: There are warranties and then there are warranties, and it’s important to select a company that will not only stand behind the warranty, but also one that will be able to honor it within the U.S. Wise consumers recognize that there is no such thing as a lifetime, unlimited warranty without a “catch” of some kind. Late-night infomercials often use this strategy to entice sales, but they generally have low-cost items and studies have proven that 98.9% of consumers will not bother to ship back a low-ticket item even with that “money back guarantee”. If necessary, ask to see the full warranty before you purchase (versus a warranty certificate) and don’t just “buy in” to a company that says they’ll stand behind the product “forever”and ever no matter what. Every “lifetime” warranty on the planet has exclusions of some sort and “lifetime” warranty ionizer companies are no different. If they go out of business; you have no warranty and if you’re required to ship your product back to Korea to the manufacturer (avg shipping $600 each way), it makes no financial sense whatsoever. Look for a company that has a solid (and realistic) warranty along with U.S. service centers prepared to offer timely and efficient serving whenever it’s needed.
Investing in ionization water technology is (by far) the single most significant investment that you can make for your health and well-being and it makes perfect financial sense for the long run…if you buy the right one, that is! When it comes to anything consumable, it pays to do your homework AND it never pays to skimp.
