AlkaViva water ionizers are designed to produce high quality filtered ionized water from municipal (treated) water systems that do not exceed the following water quality parameters:
- Hardness (or Calcium Carbonate) over 150ppm (8.5 grains)
- Iron over .3ppm
- TDS below 40ppm or over 600ppm
- Calcium above 50ppm
Treated municipal water in some areas of the country - such as parts of Arizona, Southern California, Texas, Utah, New Mexico and the Midwest - and some well water sources anywhere in the US, may exceed these parameters.
Also If your source water is from a well, it must be analyzed to make sure there are no unsafe levels of contaminants. If seen as necessary, well water filters and other well water treatment systems can be provided to ensure the safety of your water plus performance and longevity of your investment.
If you have water softeners or other well water treatment systems in place, please get the water tested after this filtration. We want to know what is in the water that will be going into your ionizer.
For the health of you and your family, we also recommend testing your well water for other constituents including coliform bacteria, nitrites/nitrates, arsenic, and fluoride. These can all be dealt with by an appropriate well water filter.
The information we require to insure maximum benefit and functionality are: TDS (total dissolved solids), hardness, pH, iron, and calcium.
Your local County or State Health Agency may offer free or low cost water testing. We recommend contacting them first. As a customer service, we also offer a well water test kit and a professional water testing service at wholesale price.
Email or fax a copy of your water report to AlkaViva - including levels of TDS, Calcium, Hardness, and Iron - for a free analysis. Once your report has been reviewed we will recommend the ideal well water filtration and treatment system for your situation, if needed.
