Water Ionizers Reviewed

Haven’t got time to read the entire internet to find out which water ionizer really is best? We hear you. That’s why we’ve compiled an at-a-glance, side-by-side guide to the biggest names in water ionizers right now.


Enagic (Kangen)

Enagic/Kangen is a recognizable name in the industry, with an established reputation. But after 4 decades in the business, are they still at the cutting edge of ionizer technology? Here are the main pointers:

  • Kangen’s most powerful water ionizer – The K8 – comes with only 8 solid plates, which isn’t powerful enough to match the high levels of molecular hydrogen that their competitors produce.
  • Kangen machines rely on outmoded Transformer Power Supply units, with no adjustable/customizable power settings.
  • Enagic has an MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) business model, which means inflated prices for customers, in order to meet layers of commission payments.
  • Limited information on filtration. Other than chlorine, Enagic is somewhat reticent to divulge exactly how many contaminants their filters remove.
  • The trial period for a Kangen water ionizer is a measly 3 days. Barely time to get it unpacked and set up!
  • The warranty period is similarly unimpressive, with a three or five-year guarantee the best on offer.

Tyent Water Ionizers

Tyent Water Ionizers is another household name in water ionizers and

frequently mentioned in the same breath as Kangen. So how do the two big-name brands compare?

  • Tyent machines are powerful. For example, the ACE-13 model features 13 large, Solid/Mesh Hybrid plates. Constructed from titanium and dipped multiple times in platinum, the hybrid design provides strength and increased surface area. More surface area = more power, and more molecular hydrogen in every glass.
  • Tyent advanced technology is second to none: adjustable flow rates, jog dial controls, motion-activated sensors and dozens more features are standard across the Tyent range.
  • Tyent has dealer-affiliated programs, so there are no commission payments to be passed on to the customer, in the form of an enhanced price.
  • Filtration is another of Tyent’s areas of strength. Their engineers have developed some of the most advanced filters on the market, taking out up to 99% of lead, Chromium-6 and other heavy metals, along with drug residues and other toxins. Tyent is also transparent – all of the filtration information is clearly listed on their website.
  • Tyent is unbeatable on warranty, offering a Lifetime Guarantee, plus parts and labor, on every water ionizer. Tyent’s impressive customer care is worthy of a mention too.



There are plenty of other water ionizer companies out there, so use this list as a means of deciding who is really offering the most for your money.

Consider plate-power, filtration, flow rate, as well as the non-water ionizer details – the warranty, trial period and so on.
