Letâ€™s not beat around the bush. Â If we ignore for a moment all the important benefits of hydrogen alkaline water and look purely at the issue of filtration, itâ€™s no secret that there are cheaper ways to filter your water than with a water ionizer. Â
At some point, many people consider buying a jug filter. Â Pitchers are cheap and easy to use, but how do they really compare? Â
Putting You in The Pitcher
Even the most high-end and technically advanced filter pitchers have only a tiny proportion of the capabilities of a water ionizer. Â They remove some impurities from your water and make it taste better, but quite …
Look, donâ€™t shoot the messenger, but thereâ€™s something else to worry about in Americaâ€™s water. Â
Bosses at coal-burning power plants country-wide are required to file reports with the Environmental Protection Agency this month, looking into the toxins that are being released into groundwater from vast, unlined “ponds” containing coal ash and debris.
“Coal ash ponds need to be addressed as potential environmental and human health issues.”

Coal Ash Court Cases
130 million tons of coal ash is produced each year. Â Arsenic, Chromium-6, mercury and radium are just a few of the dangerous substances potentially leaching into the water supply. Â …
The cancer-causing contaminant Chromium-6, brought to the public gaze by Erin Brockovich, is at levels exceeding public health goals in 50 states.
Millions of people are trying to find a workable solution to protect themselves and their families and to avoid drinking contaminated water. Â
What Reverse Osmosis Water Does to the Pipeline
A reverse osmosis water system is sometimes touted as a possible solution on both a domestic and municipal level. Â After all, it removes contaminants and thatâ€™s the goal, right?
Unfortunately, reverse osmosis is not a solution on either front. Â On a city-wide basis, aside from the prohibitive cost of building the plant, the stripped-back water â€“ though admittedly free of contaminants …
