The Safety of UltraWater™ Filtration

UltraWater is the only water ionizer filter that is USA-made and has certified independent test results for 249 contaminants, reducing virtually all of them up to 99.9%. The healthiest water starts with clean.

AutoAdjust Advanced Power Supply

The last piece of the performance puzzle is power. The answer is not high wattage and power consumption, that eventually burns out electrodes. AutoAdjust automatically modulates the SMPS power as it pulses to the electrodes ensuring you get maximum efficiency plus optimal – and lasting – performance. Automatically.

H2 Infusion Technology

Top ionizer performance requires more than just electrodes. Our proprietary membrane manufacturing combined with Smart Electrodes create H2 Infusion Technology…and unmatched H2 performance.

New and Improved DARC II Cleaning

cell cleaning water ionizer

We introduced DARC in 2006 and it’s still the best way to automatically clean your electrodes and ensure lasting performance. The new DARC II has been improved to be more effective and more reliable. More peace of mind.

7 Smart Electrodes

The highest quality, Japanese titanium and platinum, along with precise Korean engineering, are what create the Smart Electrodes. The most efficient, longest lasting and highest performing electrodes. That’s smart.

Protective RISC Circuitry

RISC processors consume less power and offer the highest performance. RISC’s advanced technology performs self-diagnosis on the ionizer each time you use it. It protects your ionizer if there is any type of fault and notifies you on the LCD display.


One Touch Convenience – one Touch Technology allows you to easily and precisely control your ionizer's functions … with one touch.

Filter Replacement Alert – an LCD Filter Counter displays the filter life as you use it. Voice and icon reminders alert you when it is time to change your filters.

Dual Filtration – on-board including our unrivaled UltraWater. No need for extra external cartridge like some other companies offer as “custom” filters. This means the cleanest water for less cost and less hassle.

Precise Flow Control System – provides better performance. You can monitor the flow rate on the LCD display and use the flow control knob to easily select or set the flow rate you like.

Twin Hot Water Protection – twin sensors – one before each filter – protect your ionizer against the damage that can be caused by inadvertent hot water.

Cell Safe Technology – the BPA-free water cell is made using NSF certified material and pressure rated to 90 psi.

Installation Options – at your sink (attached with a diverter), at your sink (plumbed directly to the cold-water line), or under your sink with an Undersink Kit.

Elegance – unmatched quality finish.

  • You Need to Consider 3 Important Things:

    1) Filter Performance
    2) Hydrogen Production
    3) pH and -ORP Production

    Filter Performance

    AlkaViva Filter Testing Is:


  • Certified & credible: All tests performed in Independent, EPA / NELAP Certified Labs
  • Thorough: We omit nothing and we show results for everything tested.
  • Real world: We tested contaminant levels in parts per million and that were as close to the EPA Maximum Contaminant Level as we could get.
  • Nothing hidden or left out: We reported everything – even the toughest to remove contaminants such as arsenic, chromium VI etc.
  • Comprehensive: We tested 21 heavy metals, 65 pharmaceuticals, 3 OTC drugs, 7 Hormones, 15 pesticides and herbicides, preservatives and wastewater indicators, 45 VOCs, and 5 other anions & disinfectants - a total of 249 contaminants!
UltraWater Test Results

Hydrogen Production

Most other systems can create at least a low level of H2. Anything that creates decent H2 also creates it in water that is dangerously high in pH – always well above 10 pH. Not only is it questionable in health terms, but water that high in pH tastes bad! The Athena H2 is better than other systems in its mid-range price category at delivering H2 performance, especially at lower more drinkable - and safer - pH levels.

-ORP and pH Production

The Athena H2 will (depending on source water) create up to an 10.5+ pH and -800 ORP. What is misleading and false marketing is to say an ionizer will get a particular result since the result will vary depending on the mineral concentration in your water and the flow rate. What we will guarantee is that if any customer can show, in the first 90 days after purchase, that our ionizer does not outperform any other brand ionizer using the same number of plates, the same flow rate and the same input water, then we will give a full refund.

This Ain't Just Water...

Benefits backed by research.

Over 1,000 peer-reviewed studies show that molecular hydrogen - or H2 - has a therapeutic benefit in every organ of the human body and positively affects over 170 disease models and health conditions.

Get your antioxidants - in your water!

Free radical damage causes oxidative stress and is one of the primary causes of aging. Oxidation causes iron or apples to “rust”. Antioxidants prevent or slow that damage. Unfortunately, anti-oxidants are non-selective neutralizing both beneficial and harmful radicals. The H2 in UltraWater™ selectively targets only the damaging radicals - making it the “ultimate” antioxidant.

Drink more. Improve your health.

When H2 neutralizes damaging oxygen radicals, it creates water (H2O) - increasing your cellular hydration. Great tasting, silky-smooth, alkaline UltraWater is also easier to drink. When you drink more, you enjoy optimal hydration and better health.

Ease your aches and pains.

Oxidative stress damages your cells, causing pain and inflammation. As we age, inflammation increases. Studies show that H2 water neutralizes the damaging radicals. Drinking UltraWater can ease chronic and acute aches and pain.

Go longer. Go stronger.

ATP powers your cells. It is the source of your energy. Research shows H2 helps increase ATP production giving you more energy while decreasing lactic acid levels. Athlete? Exerciser? Just want more pep? UltraWater helps improve performance and recovery.

Help balance your pH.

UltraWater is alkaline and ionized making it rich in naturally occurring beneficial minerals like calcium and magnesium that help you alkalize and maintain a healthy pH balance.

Prince or frog? You decide.
Will it grace my kitchen and be a welcome addition? How large is it? How refined is the design?
Color Options Two-tone Dark Charcoal & Metallic Silver White (metallic option) Black / Graphite Metallic Gray
Size Compact Reasonably compact but 7" deep Larger size - taller and wider More compact than 'Life' / larger than AlkaViva
Overall Design Refined European design. High-end finish works well with a variety of décor / appliances. Outdated Asian look. Large spout. Questionable look for a high-end stainless / black kitchen decor. You better like black! Very square and boxy. Unrefined. New model is their best looking Ionizer. Competitive, high-end quality like AlkaViva.
Do NOT overlook filtration.
Healthy water starts with clean. Ionizers filters are not all created equal.
The scary part? Unfiltered contaminants are ionized and made more bio-available.
How Good Are Filters?
The result of 3 years and $500,000+ in R&D. UltraWater's proprietary impregnated carbon block technology uses 16 medias to target broad based contaminants - as shown in independent test results. Unmatched performance. Granulated Activated Carbon plus Calcium Sulfite (like Brita). Very simple filter that along with a high flow rate offers minimal contact time and poor broad-based contaminant reduction. Granulated Activated Carbon with Vitamin C (that targets only chlorine). Life sends a “customized” three external filter set (actually same filter set no matter where you live). Granulated Activated Carbon plus a .01M membrane for microbes only. Filters do not remove broad-based contaminants like heavy metals etc.
Are the Filters Tested? (Yes) - EPA / NELAP certified lab tests show a 99.9% reduction of 172 contaminants (including arsenic) across a broad range of contaminants. WQA Gold Seal / NSF 42 NSF 42 certifies reduction of chlorine taste and odor only. None posted on website. - but with questionable caveats. Done in unrealistic parts per billion and missing tough to remove toxins like arsenic, chromium etc.
Heavy Metals




Are Filters Biodegradable?
Extra External Filters Required? Not Needed. Plus if you have a unique situation, AlkaViva has a complete range of specialty filters to handle anything. Not Needed. But if you have a unique situation, you will need to find specialty filters through third party vendors. REQUIRED. Life’s answer to their limited internal filter is to send you three more external ones. You must replace all 5 filters annually, or void your warranty. Not Needed. And they offer a reasonable choice in external specialty filters.
Filtration Gimmicks? NONE. Just credible, verifiable testing, with clear protocols, showing high reductions of even the toughest things like arsenic, cadmium etc. NONE. However, their WQA listing is very limited in what has been tested. UV LIGHT. UV is unnecessary in an ionizer using treated water since chlorine kills microbes.. It is also ineffective due to lack of adequate treatment time (due to fast flow rate). .01M FILTER. This filter only removes microbes (killed by chlorine) in treated water. Useful for wells, but does NOT reduce broad-based contaminants.
Power: too much of a good thing is bad!
Inefficient large plates require higher power. High power creates more heat and stresses the plating, shortening lifespan.
