If you are like me and cannot really imagine paying for water on a regular basis, you will most likely be in the market for some sort of water purifier. This can be a daunting task these days with all different models that you can get.
Here is a few of the different types of water purifiers on the market:
2. Water distillers
3. Reverse osmosis
5. UV lamps for killing bacteria
6. Water ionizers
This is most of them, there may be others but one of these types will probably be the kind you purchase.
Now I should let you know that you would probably get one with a mix of these features. For example I saw a a model that had filtration, a UV lamp and produced ozone. For those of you that do not know, ozone is just oxygen or (O2) with another oxygen molecule fastened to it (O3) that searches out and annihilates a toxin or parasite and then turns back into O2. Ozone will oxygenate the water and make it taste good.
Next are distillers. These are good in a way that you are guaranteed clean and safe drinking water. This may be ok for detoxifying your body but this water is looked upon to be dead and has no minerals in it. It is very hard to get a solid conclusion on this, as there are many different opinions.
My feeling is that there may be greater choices.
Reverse Osmosis systems are quite popular as these machines have a process where water is forced through a semi-permeable membrane, this eliminates pollutants and leaves the water tasting good.
Now filtered and UV water purifiers are kinds that I think should not be used alone. They are ok but each one only tackles one problem. The filter may get rid of pollutants and some chemicals but not bacteria and the UV systems are great at eliminating bacteria but not chemicals.
The last water purifier of the group is water ionizers. The best concept about this type of apparatus is Oxidation Reduction Potential or ORP for short. This is the units ability to calculate the formation of anti oxidant properties in the water.
You want a low negative number here. Around negative 200 ORP is a great number. Another wonderful aspect is that the machine can develop alkaline water, which is very good for health.
If I had to decide from the group I would either pick an ozonated purifier or a water ionizer.
