Fake Comparison Sites – Beware!


There is some tricky business going on today on the internet. Testing ionizer performance can easily be manipulated, even if they go to great lengths to tell you how they are not. There are basically three ways to manipulate test results: 1) control the performance variables, 2) Doctor the test vessels, 3) play tricks with the camera. BUYER BEWARE of performance tests which carry no certification. You should only trust test results obtained by a third party credible source that is willing to certify the test results.Let’s look at each of the ways tests can appear to be legitimate but are dishonest and manipulated:

Testing where you cannot see the voltage settings on the ionizers: This would be the easiest trick they can play. The scenario is easy: the person performing the test tells you the ionizer is on the highest setting, but the camera does not bother to zoom in on the control panel of the ionizer so you can see it. As you view a performance video pay attention to:

· The close up shots of the control panel of each ionizer.

· Look to ensure the highest setting is selected and that you can actually see this.

Manipulating Flow Rates: You can always achieve higher pH and ORP readings with reduced flow rates. Simply put, speed up flow rate, you get less performance; slow it down and you’ll get more performance.  As you view a performance video pay attention to:

· The individual flow rates on each ionizer – can you see them individually and close up?

· Are all the ionizers running at the same time? If so be suspicious – it would be easy to control flow using an in-line valve. You could slow flow to one ionizer to increase results and speed up flow on another ionizer to decrease results.

Additives: Some units have mineral ports. Additives can be introduced to increase or decrease performance.

· White vinegar can be added to the port of an ionizer to decrease performance

· Mineral additives can be introduced to increase performance

· Again, who did the test? Are they credible?

In the end ask who was controlling the settings? A technician from an Independent EPA Certified Analytical Lab would certainly be the most trustworthy.

DOCTORING TEST VESSELS – Even if they state that the test vessels are brand new. Here a few ways in which they can appear brand new but completely skew results:

· Ammonia or bleach – both liquids are extremely powerful alkaline substances. Both also happen to be clear liquids. Here is a simple an powerful way in which to alter results: Take what appears to be a new cup, swirl some bleach or ammonia in it. Pour it out. Allow to dry. Now your vessel appears brand new – but will powerfully alter the results. Add water and you will have a high pH result.

· White vinegar or muriatic acid – both liquids are extremely powerful acidic substances. Both are also clear liquids. Test results can be doctored to lower results using the same method but substituting an acidic. Add water and you will have a lower pH result.

PLAYING TRICKS WITH THE CAMERA OR NARRATIVE– this form of manipulation is easiest to understand. Through editing you can start or stop a film easily creating results that are falsified. Magic can fool your naked eye; imagine what type of magic can be crafted using a camera! Through deft narrative you can be hypnotized into thinking that a test appears to be performed honestly. This is also the easiest to remove doubt from. Believe only facts that can be certified. As you view a performance video ask:

· Who is making the rating or video? Who actually performed the tests?

· Is the person testing (and standing behind the results) credible? Can they be believed?

· Would you prefer to believe a technician from an Independent EPA Certified Analytical Lab would certainly be the most trustworthy.

Lastly lets look at the motivation. Most of the current comparison sites have top ranking in the “Sponsored Links” section on GoogleTM. Why on earth would an objective review site pay GoogleTM to get to the top billing in the search engine rankings? Could it be they stand to profit? The only criteria they offer you are their homegrown video “performance tests” which attempt to appear unbiased and objective. Again, ask the salient questions. In the end you will find it is a slick, yet essentially dishonest approach to offering a comparison. It is designed to direct you to their specific brand, which of course they rank the highest. Additionally, they focus only on pH and ORP and leave out some other crucial performance considerations. In short, when you look past a clean-cut image and a smooth articulate delivery, where are the facts that you can trust?

WHAT YOU SHOULD BELIEVE – It is especially important when considering performance testing that you trust only facts. There are more and more “comparisons” showing up on the Internet lately; how can you know which to believe? The following criteria will help you distinguish what is truly factual from that which appears to be, but in reality is not.


Is the Test Independent, Third Party? You will want to know the party performing the test has no motivation for a specific outcome. Ideally a test would be performed by a company with absolutely no business ties to any brand. There are tests on the Internet that appear to be objective but in reality are not. In a few short minutes of internet searching, we found an interesting website depicting the ties of one comparison site to a specific brand. A good litmus test to apply is does the entity performing the test make income from the sale of ionizers? Can you verify this?

Is the Test Scientific? Look for good solid scientific testing using:

o Top quality instruments. Measuring pH is relatively common (example: pool and fish tank maintenance) and the equipment to do it is fairly accurate and readily available. Measuring ORP is another story entirely. ORP is expressed in millivolts (1/1000 of a single volt) and measures extremely slight, and highly variable differences in the electrical properties of water. Instruments that measure ORP range in price from $100 for a handheld “tester” to over $3,000 for more sophisticated laboratory equipment. Look for the more sophisticated and expensive laboratory equipment.

o Solid lab protocols and flawless execution. There are many factors which can be manipulated easily in a video. You will want verify that all possible variables that could affect the outcome of testing were strictly controlled such as settings, flow rates, age of the ionizer

Are the Results Certified? You want to see results certified by a credible authority, which will stand behind the fact that it is an Independent Third Party that has employed proper scientific protocols. The litmus test here is easy: would the certifying party have anything to lose if they were caught falsifying certified results? An analytical lab with an EPA certification on the line would be a good bet to provide facts that are verifiable and trustworthy. A guy standing in a kitchen would not.

ION LIFE: Double Spouted Fauet Undersink Kit

Retail Price: $159.95

Many customers desire the luxury of installing an ionizer under the sink. In the past, a single spouted faucet was available in these instances, but that system was flawed because access to the acid water was lost. In addition, the installation was complicated with the need to connect the “acidic” hose to the drains under the sink.

IonLife New Brushed Double Spouted Faucet

IonLife New Brushed Double Spouted Faucet

Ion Life is proud to introduce a major revelation with the creation of a single control, double spouted and vented faucet (Patent Pending). This configuration allows for full access to the acidic water produced by the ionizer and installation is a snap. The kit comes with everything necessary for quick and easy installation. All that is needed is a 1-1/2” hole wherever you want the faucet to be located.

This faucet has no electric controls so access to the ionizer under the counter is still needed to change pH settings, adjust flow rate or check filter life indicator. Colors/finishes available include polished chrome, brushed chrome, white and brass

The story of alkaline water ionizers is like a river with two major streams feeding into it. The first stream is the inspirational paradigm, the idea that has led so many on a quest for a superior form of water. The second stream is the development of the process itself, the technology of the ionization of water.

Technology Plate

Technology Plate

In a sense, the development of the process arrived first, before the paradigm was known to the wider world of research. It came through Michael Faraday, who invented the magneto and dynamo and was one of the great pioneers of electrical energy. One of his inventions that never achieved any practical use in his lifetime was a device for creating electrolysis, the electronic separation of water into its two principal constituents, hydrogen and oxygen. Later on, a form of electrolysis was used in the creation of the alkaline water ionizer.

It would take more than a century for scientists throughout the world to find the inspiration they needed to move forward with their quest to find perfect, healthier water for use by mankind. There were probably a wide variety of people who felt this inspiration. However, the full story of the development of the alkaline water ionizer has yet to be accurately traced.

One of those early researchers, Dr. Henri Coanda, was a renowned Rumanian scientist and Nobel Prize winner. He is known primarily for his study of fluid dynamics and its application to aeronautics. What is less known was his lifelong obsession with the structure of water, an obsession no doubt fueled by the stories of longevity that surfaced regarding the people of Hunza. As far back as the 1930’s, Coanda journeyed to that remote land to confirm his speculations that perhaps the water of Hunza had unique properties that contributed to their longevity. His conclusion was that, indeed, the water was different. When its temperature was lowered and the Hunza water assumed a crystalline, snowflake formation, it revealed a structure similar to the venal system in humans and additionally to the vascular structure in plants.

As far as the history of alkaline water ionization goes, all roads lead to Hunza of the Himalayas and to the Andes Mountains, the Shin-Chan areas of China and the Caucasus in Azerbaijan. Remote places to be sure, but places where longevity is the rule, not the exception.



Long before attempts were made to restructure water through ionization, various scientists found the Hunza water and diet to be a matter of special interest. After all, did the Hunza not have the longest lifespan in the world? Did they not bear children when they were comparatively older than their brethren in the rest of the world? Where was their cancer, their cavities, their degenerative diseases? What caused this phenomenon of health, vitality, and an overall body balance to originate and blossom in such a far away place?

The impetus of Hunza water was and is the common denominator of research into the water of longevity. And since most of the world could not recreate the unusual glacial conditions and mountainous terrain from which this water sprang, scientists looked at the structure of the water to see if it could be created. Could they recreate this special water’s high alkaline terrain? Could they simulate its active hydrogen content? Could they infuse it with this special form of hydrogen with the extra electron? Could they match its negative Redox potential? Could they take ordinary water and create this life giving water with its remarkably high colloidal mineral content?

The history of this search and that of others for a more perfect, more healing water, and the subsequent invention of the alkaline water ionizer, has perhaps yet to be told in full. Part of what is written here has been surmised from verbal accounts. The true story of this adventure has never been accurately recorded.

Although the account seems somewhat murky, it is believed that sometime after World War II, there was an attempt on the part of a number of Russian and Japanese researchers to investigate these same waters that Coanda had investigated. It is not clear exactly what inspired them to go forth, but by the 1940’s, certainly many more knew about Hunza than had known before. Its reality, in fact, had led to the romantic novel, Lost Horizons, about a mythical kingdom called Shangri-la, where people lived forever. Lost Horizon’s adaptation to film, in a blockbuster movie directed by Frank Capra, projected the story of the secret wells of life secluded in the mountainous regions of the Himalayas. By the end of the 1940’s, although no one claimed true immortality for the inhabitants of Hunza, there was a fever to find and understand the secret source of the longevity of the people of Hunza. The majority sensed that it lay in both diet and water.

The story, which has proliferated in an undeveloped form, is that the Japanese tapped into the new methods of electrolysis experiments being done by their Russian peers which had no doubt been inspired by the original technology of Faraday.

Alkaline ionic water is made by using a water ionizer to split electrically filtered tap water into alkaline ionic water and acid water, each of which then feeds into a separate chamber. One chamber contains the alkaline water that has been found to be so enriching to human health and wellness. The second chamber contains the acid water, which has remarkable uses as well.

The first water ionizer, whose technology conformed to this description, was developed in Japan in the early 50’s, probably as a result of probing into the Russian system of electrolysis. The experiments were first conducted on plants and animals. Full-scale development started in 1954 Several Japanese agricultural universities began looking into the effects of alkaline ionic water, and especially the effects of acid water on plants. Today nursery farmers that supply cut flowers use acid water to keep their flowers fresh for a longer period of time before delivery to the flower shops.

It took longer to gather data on humans, certainly a much more complex effort. However, doctors in Japan finally collected enough data to confirm not only the non-toxicity of the alkaline water, but its beneficial effects in eradicating certain disease conditions. The new methodology was called functional water technology, a term still used in Japan to this day.

The first commercial alkaline ionic water ionizers were available in Japan in l958. At first, only very large units were used in hospitals. In l960, a group of Japanese medical doctors and agricultural research scientists, formed a special medical and agricultural research institute to investigate ionized water. Annual meetings were held to report their findings. Finally, in January 1966, the Health and Rehabilitation Ministry of the Japanese Government acknowledged the alkaline ionic water ionizer as a legitimate medical device for improving human health.

Japanese-made alkaline ionic water ionizers were first introduced to Korea in the 70’s, and today are also approved as medical devices by the government of South Korea. In 1985, the Korean-made household unit was introduced in the United States. A successful toxicity test was conducted by an independent testing laboratory in LA utilizing FDA standards the next year. The results proved that there was no toxicity in the alkaline ionic water generated by the water ionizer.

Japanese Scientists

Despite the success of the testing, it wasn’t until the 1990’s that the market for ionizers began, principally through Japanese and Korean companies, who are still continuing their research and development now. The advent of the millennium brings a recent resurgence and growth in the alkaline water ionization, with good reason. People are sicker than ever. For all of our modern technology, medical procedures, and prescription drug use, disease rates continue to skyrocket in the majority of developed nations. The biggest common denominator amongst these nations is the fact that almost everyone drinks “dirty water.”

Over the last forty years, it is estimated that somewhere in the neighborhood of 30 million Japanese citizens have used these devices. This could very well help explain the fact that Japan has the number one health care system in the world as reported by Dr. Barbara Starfield in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). Japan reports higher cancer survival rates and other disease recovery rates as well. Unfortunately, the United States ranked a miserable number thirteen in this report. Could a partial answer to what plagues you lie in life giving and life sustaining ionized water? We think so.

Dr. Linda Posch MS SLP ND: Has an eclectic clinical approach and strongly advocates the use of ionized water coupled with whole food liquid vitamins and whole food vitamin supplements.

Beware of fake water ionizer comparison sites!

Compare Water Ionizers?
What you See may NOT be What you Get

Jupiter Science water ionizers have been sold in the USA since 1995 and recently the great success of IonLife, as the industry leaders, has resulted in many new water ionizers
Because new players have little to lose and posssibly a lot to gain it is very tempting to put up a good looking site that compare water ionizers, then manipulate, cover-up or not reveal facts and figures to fool the unwary.
IonLife has been, and is, happy to let our customers and dealers speak for themselves. But there comes a time when it is necessary to get involved on another level.

As an example of what is NOT a true, independent site, comparing water ionizers, please go to
Is it obvious who put up this site and for what purpose?
Are you told this is not an unbiased compare water ionizer site because it is owned and run by Life Ionizers?
And why are the only links on the home page to Gold Fox (a non-competing low end model) and Kangen (a not for retail/wholesale MLM company)?

Next click on the link that goes to the comparison chart.
Did you expect or hope that the information here would be unbiased and accurate?
And do you see here that Life Ionizers has changed “manufacturer” three times since 2007?

Now please click on the Independent Comparison Lab Tests button on the compare water ionizer site or Click Here
These compare water ionizer tests were apparently run on hard water (where the pH is high to start with) and apparently show the Orion and Athena hardly able to change the pH at all, unlike the Life Ionizer unit that gets an impressive 10.9 pH.
Well, we know these results are not true because:

    a) The Orion and Aquarius are exactly the same ionizer inside yet somehow give a 7.9 and 9.3 using the same water. 

    b) IonLife would not be in business as the leading ionizing company with over 600 dealers in USA plus Agents in about 28 other countries if we did not get great results in pH, ORP and reliability. We know Jupiter Science ionizers compare well to any other brand and with the patented DARC cleaning system we know our ionizers will keep performing like new for many years after others have failed due to buildup and breakdown of the plates etc.

    c) Do a web search for dealers that sell Jupiter models and other models. Ask them what they think of Jupiter and what results they have achieved.


Now read on … this gets interesting!So, on July 22, 2008, we decided to call Aquatic Consulting & Testing Inc to see how these test results that compare water ionizers were obtained. The technician, we spoke to, knew about the ionizer tests and told us that he was never sent any ionizers!.
Instead what he was sent were water samples in the mail, by a dealer of Life Ionizers, with the name of the ionizers on the outside!!! He did what he was asked to do and now what you see is what Life Ionizers wants you to see.

So when you look at videos that show a man in a white lab coat testing ionizers or see performance charts or read about this company being the biggest and best then please ask qustions and check around. We will happily provide evidence to back up everything we say on our site.

Allow us to show you why:
Jupiter Science is the most popular ionizer brand in the USA.
Our customer service and support is second to none.
Our ionizers are the best available – regardless of price.
Our return rate is the lowest in the industry.
Our customer satisfaction rating is the highest in the industry.

And thank you for giving us this chance to help level the playing field.

Second Thoughts about Fluoride
by Dan Fagin.
Scientific American, January 2008, pages 74–81

(Full Article available online for $4.95.)

Fluoride Action Network | 802-338-5577 |


Researchers are intensifying their scrutiny of fluoride, which is added to most public water systems in the U.S. Some recent studies suggest that overconsumption of fluoride can raise the risks of disorders affecting teeth, bones, the brain and the thyroid gland.

A 2006 report by a committee of the National Research Council recommended that the federal government lower its current limit for fluoride in drinking water because of health risks to both children and adults

Page 75: Most fluoridated water contains much less fluoride than the EPA limit, but the situation is worrisome because there is so much uncertainty over how much additional fluoride we ingest from food, beverages and dental products. What is more, the NRC panel noted that fluoride may also trigger more serious health problems, including bone cancer and damage to the brain and thyroid gland. Although these effects are still unproved, the panel argued that they deserve further study.

Page 75: TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING: Fluoride is in many foods, beverages and dental products. The ubiquity of the cavity-fighting chemical can result in overconsumption, particularly among young children.

Page 78: Scientific attitudes toward fluoridation may be starting to shift in the country where the practice began.

Page 79: But enamel fluorosis, except in the severest cases, has no health impact beyond lowered self-esteem: the tooth marks are unattractive and do not go away (although there are masking treatments). The much more important question is whether fluoride’s effects extend beyond altering the biochemistry of tooth enamel formation. Says longtime fluoride researcher Pamela DenBesten of the University of California, San Francisco, School of Dentistry: “We certainly can see that fluoride impacts the way proteins interact with mineralized tissue, so what effect is it having elsewhere at the cellular level? Fluoride is very powerful, and it needs to be treated respectfully.”

Page 80: Clashes over the possible neurological effects of fluoride have been just as intense. Phyllis Mullenix, then at the Forsyth Institute in Boston, set off a firestorm in the early 1990s when she reported that experiments on lab rats showed that sodium fluoride can accumulate in brain tissue and affect animal behavior. Prenatal exposures, she reported, correlated with hyperactivity in young rats, especially males, whereas exposures after birth had the opposite effect, turning female rats into what Mullenix later described as “couch potatoes.” Although her research was eventually published in Neurotoxicology and Teratology, it was attacked by other scientists who said that her methodology was flawed and that she had used unrealistically high dosages. Since then, however, a series of epidemiological studies in China have associated high fluoride exposures with lower IQ, and research has also suggested a possible mechanism: the formation of aluminum fluoride complexes—small inorganic molecules that mimic the structure of phosphates and thus influence enzyme activity in the brain. There is also some evidence that the silicofluorides used in water fluoridation may enhance the uptake of lead into the brain.

Page 80: The NRC committee concluded that fluoride can subtly alter endocrine function, especially in the thyroid—the gland that produces hormones regulating growth and metabolism. Although researchers do not know how fluoride consumption can influence the thyroid, the effects appear to be strongly influenced by diet and genetics. Says John Doull, professor emeritus of pharmacology and toxicology at the University of Kansas Medical Center, who chaired the NRC committee: “The thyroid changes do worry me. There are some things there that need to be explored.”

Page 80-81: “What the committee found is that we’ve gone with the status quo regarding fluoride for many years—for too long, really—and now we need to take a fresh look,” Doull says. “In the scientific community, people tend to think this is settled. I mean, when the U.S. surgeon general comes out and says this is one of the 10 greatest achievements of the 20th century, that’s a hard hurdle to get over.  But when we looked at the studies that have been done, we found that many of these questions are unsettled and we have much less information than we should, considering how long this [fluoridation] has been going on. I think that’s why fluoridation is still being challenged so many years after it began. In the face of ignorance, controversy is rampant.”

Page 81: Opponents of fluoridation, meanwhile, have been emboldened by the NRC report. “What the committee did was very, very important, because it’s the first time a truly balanced panel has looked at this and raised important questions,” says Paul Connett, a chemistry professor at St. Lawrence University and the executive director of the Fluoride Action Network, one of the most active antifluoridation groups world-wide. “I absolutely believe it’s a scientific turning point because now everything’s on the table.  Fluoride is the most consumed drug in the U.S., and it’s time we talked about it.”

The optimal range for daily intake of fluoride—the level that maximizes protection against tooth decay but minimizes other risks— is generally considered to be 0.05 to 0.07 milligram for each kilogram of body weight. Consuming foods and beverages with large amounts of fluoride can put a diet above this range. Below are typical trace levels of fluoride, measured in parts per million (ppm),  found in foods and drinks tested at the University of Iowa College of Dentistry.

Why is a farce!!

What to do with “Compare Ionizer” Sites. is up on deck first. We took that direct URL and are dissecting and giving YOU the tools to battle these site and really educate your customers. These sites, and ionizersreviewed are great marketing sites, but very innaccurate and NOT educational in a way beneficial for the consumer. This is a sneak peak, but we have a LOT more coming your way so you can refute these sites and point out the huge errors. Anyway, we know they are out there and we’re tired of them paying for people to click on these misleading sites. We’re doing something about it! So, here’s an appetizer and we’ve got more on the way.


On the site, we diessected the text, but there are a couple HUGE points that we want to make and will provide with more info later!


1. The Independent Lab Comparison

THEY WERE SENT THE WATER SAMPLES! They did not actually test the machines, they tested the water they were sent. They have no idea where the water came from, they just tested based on what someone sent into them! Wow, so they don’t know the water source, just were told the labels and to measure. Hmm, next question is who owns this site? 2/3 links to go LIFE Ionizers . . . do the investigative work. . this in itself is a huge de-valuing point for you to educate your potential customers with!


2. That Mesh Plate Technology link on their comparison site. Guess who they copied that from? AND, ours are sprayed for even coating. It’s the best technology, don’t let anyone tell you it’s not the best way. There was extensive testing done.


** ok – here’s a freebie. . . size and number of plates matter only to a certain point. The results are what matter. Bigger is not always better in the world of water ionizer. Shall we say Quality over Quantity?!


black normal text = them

red italic text = commentary

“Compare Ionizers – your best online resource for researching and comparing alkaline water ionizers”

FALSE – This is far from accurate comparative analysis. Below are a few reasons why this site appears to be fair, but really is designed to trick those uninformed about ionizers. First off, of the three pictures below, 2/3 are links to URL’s/LIFE Ionizers owned companies. The third is Enagic’s. They did’t send to because Enagic has a scary sticker price. . . their tactic is to send to the scariest competitor with the highest price tag so the consumer runs right back to LIFE Ionizers.

LIFE Ionizers owned URL LIFE IONIZERS owned URL Enagic URL

“Recently there has been a lot of talk about the unique and health-giving benefits of Kangen water. This interest in Kangen water coincided with the push into the Alkaline water market by the MLM (Multi Level Marketing) company Enagic.This article is written with the intention to address some of what is been said on other web sites and in public meetings, so that customers wanting the best value for their money, are able to make an informed opinion about “Kangen water” without the hype.”

This is ok. Kangen water is coined by Enagic dealers, but it just describes the water. The general public gets Kangen and Enagic confused because of the branding shroud. Be sure when talking to potential customers to explain to them that all ionizers make “Kangen” water, it’s “Enagic” that is the MLM company.

*Please study the details before you buy your Alkaline Water Ionizer.
This will let you know what functions and capabilities your Ionizer must have to provide you with healthy water for optimized health.

Yes. Customers should be informed, but in the correct manners.

What to look for when purchasing an Alkaline Water Ionizer:

  • Check the pH levels the machine can attain. Although you may not drink water at this high a pH, it means improved performance when your source water is a low pH.

If you refer to the last newsletter, any machine that gives you an automatic reading for pH is “lying” to you. Almost every pH meter is designed to be re-calibrated after each use + measure in standing water. Ionizer meters that can read a 10.4 or 10.5 on the flow pretty much miss the mark.

  • Check the type and number of filters. The purification and filtration of the water is very important.

½ True. Filtration is VERY important however, it’s not the # of filters that is the key. Ingredients inside the filter + size of microns + outcome is the most important. Jupiter Science has high high grade tourmaline, calcium, and a granular activated carbon media for intense chlorine removal. 2 filters doesn’t matter if one filter can do just as well. In the current race for improved technologies, smaller and more efficient seems to be the trend. Example? Look at Apple™ and their latest pencil thin notebook. Sometimes smaller is better.

  • Check the date the machine was upgraded. This indicates the advanced technologies are incorporated.

Fair. Also consider what components are in the machine and who is making/or assembling the ionizers. If a company produces a product updated yesterday but is running behind on technology, it really doesn’t matter. A reputable company with great service is just as important.

  • Check the type of chlorine removal system. The better filters reduce the chlorine more efficiently
  • Check the installation options. You want a full choice of options for installing – counter top to faucet; counter top connecting under the sink; under sink installation with all controls on the faucet

You will know best what type of machine you want. IonLife is introducing an under the counter adapter to work with multiple Jupiter Science machines and ALSO some of our competition. Ha! Get that, people who have countertop models from our competitors will be able to purchase IonLife’s adapter! Go us and Geoff Poole ( Our VP of Technology )

  • Check how long has the distributor been around. This can give you a sense of how stable the company is, so you know they will back the warranty offered

( Hmm, this true but misleading. Most of web faces you see out there are dealers of the distributor. Jupiter Science and IonLife have been paired for a while and we are more financially stable than any other distributor in the industry. We have 3 repair depots, on-site technicians who are VERY well trained, and backing by a manufacturer that supplies over 60% of the world’s water ionizers. Top that!

Value means Quality
Value means shopping with a company that has been established worldwide to provide you with the best quality products with the best results and the best prices.

Value is Value and Quality is Quality, but for all purposes. IonLife and Jupiter Science provides VALUE AND QUALITY!

IonLife’s Project Africa

An Important Message from Jay Hare,
President & CEO of IonWays

As a water industry professional, I have been invited to join the Healing Bridges Foundation, on a humanitarian mission to the refugee camps in Kassala, Sudan.

I have a vision to help; you can join with me to make my vision a reality.

In developing countries almost 80% of illness is water related. Unsafe water creates high risk for a host of diarrheal and other diseases as well as chemical intoxication. Unsanitary water has particularly devastating effects on young children in the developing world. Each year, 2 million people, mostly children less than 5 years of age, die of diarrheal disease. We can make a difference. Please continue to read about our progress, experience and goodwill as IonLife contributes to a worthwhile cause.

Become part of our family and contact us for more information.

Or if interested Click This Link to get sent off to the full appeal letter. The letter also has the link where people can donate.

Thank you for caring.
Sincerely, Jay Hare
