Alkaline Water Filters

Ionize & Remineralize In One Step!

The quality of your home’s drinking water may meet local standards, but it might not meet your own. Ordinary tap water can contain dissolved metals, including lead, iron, nitrates, chlorine, mineral salts, sulfates, and arsenic. Fortunately, you can get cleaner, clearer drinking water with a Kinetico drinking water system. But with all the taking out the bad stuff, what about putting back in the good stuff? Many people have heard the growing buzz around the potential health benefits of drinking alkaline water. After going through the filtration membranes, water heads into the alkaline filter where minerals are placed back into the water!

Why are people drinking alkaline water?

Everything you eat and drink has a pH level of 0 (very acidic) to 14 (high alkalinity). Typical drinking water usually has a pH of 7. Alkaline water typically has a pH between 7.5 and 9, our filter has reached as high as 10. Enthusiasts of consuming alkaline food and beverages advocate for added minerals.

How does the alkaline filter work?

Water is directed through a post-filter where it dissolves minerals to add flavor and raise pH. Chlorine taste and odor and sediment are reduced, and the only thing left behind is pure, great-tasting water and minerals that help improve the taste of filtered water.

The filter is the perfect addition to the Kinetico K5 Drinking Water Station.

I feel so much better our family has cleaner drinking water! I have been considering getting a whole house water purification system and found Kinetico by AAA Water Systems. We had an appointment with Damian Fernandez. He was so nice and took the... time to make sure we understood how the water system works and answered all of our questions. I was also horrified that the water test showed that what we had been drinking barely met regulations.The installation only took one day to complete. Jessie was courteous and confirmed my preferences before installing the system. The tanks take up much less space in our garage than I thought. Then Jessie walked through how to turn it off and on as well as how to maintain it. In the end I'm very pleased with the service and product!Here are a few things to consider... laundry pods have too much detergent and will stain your clothes. After the system is installed you'll need much less detergent (money saver) for the washer and dishwasher. Also you'll need to decide where you want your untreated water faucet to be. I chose inside the garage with the treatment system but I wish I would've chosen the outside faucet so I can water my plants with that water. Also if you're like us with conserving water in this drought, keep in mind you can't use the grey water from the house in your yard or garden. The treated water is not good for plants. Your house plants need to be watered with the hard, untreated water.read more

Our experience was great with Kinetico. Shout out to Damien who was so knowledgeable with the products and water system in general. He definitely took care of us. Jesse and Able came in and installed everything and did a seamless job. Everyone was... very professional and now we're loving our NEW water. It's only been a few days since installation and we've noticed a difference with our skin which was one of the main reasons why we wanted the system. I would definitely recommend this company to my friends and family. Thank you Kinetico.read more

I just wanted to say how happy I am to be a customer of AAA water systems. Kinetico. They came out and serviced one of our water treatment units that was not working correctly. The rep came out and solved the problem with some great reasoning. ... She came up with a simple solution rather then creating a big deal. Today I got a call from the service manager to check how things went with the service call along with some tips for how to keep the equipment running smoothly. I must interject that they did not install the equipment but are pleased to service it. Other companies would most likely suggest to replace. Some day it will need to be replaced and I know they will provide me with good choices and and a smooth installation. Thank you AAAread more

We had a pleasant experience with Felix and the company. Felix came to our house shortly after we requested a house visit through Kinetico website, and he performed the water test at our place and he answered all our questions about the system. We... were impressed by the results of the test and decided to go with Kinetico. Felix was easy to work with and knowledgable about the products, thus we were able to cut a deal on the same day. We'd recommend him for anyone who's interested in Kinetico products.read more

Whether you already have a water softener or you are in need of one, you NEED to go with Kinetico. The customer service is ridiculously awesome. I am typically a “bargain shopper” when it comes to everything but my father-in-law recommended this... company and now I know why. First, they were so professional. Damian (who was fantastic and knowledgeable) showed up on time, called before he arrived, and wore a mask the entire time. He even put on little booties to cover his shoes. He never talked down to us or made us feel dumb for not knowing anything about water. Second, he scheduled the install right there and explained all the options for payment. Before he left he made sure we fully understood what we choose and why we chose it. Third, our install was awesome. The installer, Jesse, was also professional and told us everything we needed to know before he left. He even gave us some special scoops for our detergent because now we don’t have to use as much! I usually don’t leave reviews but this one NEEDED to be reviewed.read more

I wanted to wait at least a week of use of our new water softener from Kinetico. Thanks to MIKE and the installers SAM and ABLE (apologies if i misspelled your names.MIKE threw the sales pitch. We wanted quotes from Kinetico and another 'new'... type of water softener company. However for my wife and i, our factor was price and Kinetico was cheaper but also sold us on the operation system. Another main factor for me was the use of electricity/power for the unit. Kineticos unit does NOT need power. It uses the force of the water coming into your home to operate. It also does NOT drop water pressure in your house. Mike noted that the tech isnt old, it isnt new, but it just WORKS. Its bulletproof. After a week we can literally SEE and FEEL the difference.SAM and ABLE installed our unit within the day. They were so courteous and respectful and also efficient. They did such a clean install where the piping is subtly routed which i loved.Dont hesitate with these guys. Thank you!read more

What is alkaline water? Alkaline meaning? Define alkaline.

Alkaline Water is classified as water with a pH level of 8 or above. Alkaline Water has become more popular because research shows that an alkaline diet is generally good for health as the body thrives when it is able to maintain a slightly alkaline pH. While low on minerals & nutrients, alkaline water has been shown to relieve symptoms of upset stomach, increase the body’s overall absorption of minerals by 30%, and reduce blood pressure by 15% (see study).

What are the benefits of alkaline water? What are the alkaline water benefits and risks?

The studied benefits of alkaline water are:
    • A 2012 study found that drinking naturally carbonated artesian-well alkaline water with a pH of 8.8 may help deactivate pepsin, the main enzyme that causes acid reflux.
    • Another study suggested that drinking alkaline ionized water may have benefits for people with high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol.
    • A more recent study that included 100 people found a significant difference in whole blood viscosity after consuming high-pH water compared to regular water after a strenuous workout. Viscosity is the direct measurement of how efficiently blood flows through the vessels.
The claimed and widely accepted, but not necessarily proven, benefits of alkaline water are:
  • Anti-Aging: Alkaline water has many potent antioxidants that help prevent the growth of cell-damaging free radicals in the body, which can further rush up the aging process.
  • Immune Support: Your immune system may help neutralize the acidity in your body, which is caused by poor diet, stress, and environmental toxins.
  • Hydration: Alkaline water has ultra-hydrating properties as compared to normal water. This can be a beneficial drink for people who work out on a daily basis and require more water in their bodies. Scientifically speaking, the water molecules in alkaline water are smaller and more readily absorbed by your cells, which help your body rehydrate quickly.
  • Bone Health: Alkaline water is said to have various minerals like magnesium and calcium, both of which are important for maintaining healthy bones.
  • Weight Loss: While there is no miracle formula for weight loss via alkaline water, drinking enough water can speed up and aid in your weight loss efforts. In the end, the secret to weight loss is a combination of proper hydration, a low-calorie diet, and regular exercise.
  • Cancer Resistance: Some research has shown that tumors are acidic and that acidity may help tumors grow. Because of this, some people have hypothesized that drinking alkaline water can help prevent cancer. However, to date, no studies have shown that drinking alkaline water prevents or treats cancer. The human body naturally keeps our blood at a 7.3 to 7.4 pH level by balancing the acidity and alkalinity of the blood. For example, we breathe out carbon dioxide and our kidneys secrete ions – all to help normalize the blood’s pH. Because the body is constantly working to balance pH levels, drinking something with a higher pH, like alkaline water, does not significantly affect the overall pH of the blood.

Is alkaline water good for you?

Alkaline water is good for you as far as the principle that a healthy intake of water is good for you goes. The issue that many health professionals have with alkaline water isn’t necessarily whether or not it’s good or safe to drink, but rather the health claims that are made about it because there isn’t enough scientific evidence to support alkaline water as a treatment for any health condition. Drinking natural alkaline water is generally considered good and safe since it contains natural minerals. However, you should use caution with artificial alkaline water, which likely contains fewer good minerals than its high pH would have you believe, and may contain contaminants – which is why we recommend that your water be filtered before being alkalized. Also keep in mind, drinking too much alkaline water without remineralization may leave you deficient in minerals.

Where can I find alkaline water near me?

You can find alkaline water near you in your home (using an alkaline water filter), in a water store, or bottled at your local grocer.

How to make alkaline water?

To make alkaline water we recommend using an alkaline water filter post reverse osmosis machine with a remineralization finishing. You can purchase a reverse osmosis system with an alkaline and remineralization filter already attached, add an alkaline filter to your existing system, get a countertop alkaline water machine, or rent a system from your local water purification company. You can also add a half tablespoon of baking soda to 4 liters of filtered water to raise the pH of your water to 9.

What is the best alkaline water?

The best alkaline water is water that has first been filtered by a reverse osmosis system (rendering it free of contaminants), then run through an alkaline water filter (to deionize it), and then finished with a remineralization filter. We might be biased, but we believe the best alkaline water water is from Kinetico.

What are the different alkaline water brands?

The different alkaline water brands are broken down into 2 categories:
  • 1. Alkaline Water Filter Brands such as Kinetico, Kangen, & Culligan.
  • 2. Alkaline Bottled Water Brands such as SmartWater, Essentia, & LIFEWTR.

What are alkaline water side effects?

Possible alkaline water side effects include:
    • lowering of natural stomach acidity which helps kill bacteria and expel other undesirable pathogens from entering your bloodstream.
    • gastrointestinal issues and skin irritations due to an overall excess of alkalinity in the body
    • metabolic alkalosis that may cause nausea, vomiting, hand tremors, muscle twitching, tingling in the extremities or face, & confusion.

Alkaline vs acidic?

Alkaline water is water that has been ionized, meaning the pH level of the water has been increased and the acidity decreased. The pH level is a number that measures how acidic or alkaline water is on a scale of 0 to 14. If the level is 2, it means the water is very acidic and if it is 12, it is very alkaline. Alkaline water has a pH level of about 8 or 9 and the pH level of normal tap water is 7, which is considered neutral.

How much alkaline water can I drink a day?

It is recommended that you drink just as much alkaline water a day as you would regular water (8-12 glasses a day). The only difference is, as your body gets used to drinking alkaline water, rotate your alkaline water intake with regular water.

What is ionization? Define ionization.

Water ionization is a process that changes the composition of mineral compounds found in tap water. Pure water can’t be ionized. To be ionized, water must have some dissolved mineral compounds in it.

What is an ionizer? What does an ionizer do?

A water ionizer ionizes mineral bicarbonates in water. Tap water has dissolved mineral compounds in it, mostly calcium bicarbonate and magnesium bicarbonate. Those mineral compounds conduct electricity well, and that enables tap water to be ionized. The water ionization process makes two types of water at the same time: Alkaline ionized water and acidic ionized water. Thus, a water ionizer doesn’t actually ionize water, instead, it ionizes the mineral bicarbonates in the water.

Does reverse osmosis remove minerals?

Reverse Osmosis (RO) removes more than 90-99.99% of all contaminants (including minerals) from drinking water. RO removes minerals because they are larger molecules than water and the filter cannot determine “good” molecules from “bad” molecules. Most minerals found in water can be harmful to human health (such as iron, fluoride, lead, etc.) but The evidence is strong that calcium and magnesium are essential elements for the human body (WQA, 2011).

How to remineralize RO water?

To remineralize water post-filtration, simply add an alkaline water filter with a remineralization finishing, add a pinch of salt, add an electrolyte blend, or add greens blend to your water.
