Are you Considering the AlkaStream?
AlkaWay took the original design and improved it with a stronger top, better US made media and a longer spout. We sold over 4000 units worldwide.
Unfortunately, we had serious quality control problems. We found that the replacement filters were not to the original high standard.
We also discovered a more serious problem.
The design of the filter uses a form of ceramic to limit bacteria. Unfortunately this media tended to block up easily in some water areas. With the incoming water pressure, this caused a pressure buildup of water that could not pass through the filter fast enough.We then found that the casing was not strong enough. One AlkaStream blew up and broke a 2" thick granite benchtop.
Of course, if users checked the ceramic and cleaned it sufficiently, it was OK, but it’s a hard job to remove the filter and remove the accreted sediment to allow the filter free water flow.
Finally we found that the outer casing was made from a plastic which succumbed to pressure, causing it to crack.
Of course if users adhere strictly to the instructions, they will have no risk of explosion. We were not happy when we could see that something better was possible.
It took us about 2 years to build on what we had learned, with the help of some of America’s best filtration engineers, but the UltraStream was born.
Our biggest change was manufacturing in the US. The Ultrastream costs us almost 3 times as much as the AlkaStream to make, but we felt that this was our big chance to really ‘raise the bar’ at every level.
We specified EPA-approved plastics throughout.
We removed anything that could rust.
We dispensed with the thinwalled outer casing.
We used Spartan carbon, the best carbon in the world.
We used NSF-approved anti fluoride media with zero ‘leak’ of media.
We chose the most expensive heavy metal reducing patented media in the world.
We dispensed with the ceramic.
We imported a special media that gave better molecular hydrogen infusion for longer.
We are continually upgrading the Ultrastream with better technology. (Every time you order a new filter, you get the latest and best proven new performance).
The actual filter is also the outer case so there is no difficulty in changing filters.
We have tested the UltraStream to the strict European safety standards. We believe this is the only water ionizer with EU safety certification.
We have university laboratory tested the Ultrastream filter to the full service life of the filter.
We have tested the Ultrastream for molecular hydrogen infusion and have found that at normal usage flow, it produces almost four times the molecular hydrogen of a $4000 electric water ionizer.
Yes, UltraStream costs more, but we have designed it from ground floor up to give you fabulous hydrogen rich ultra pure water as long as you want it. Now, each time you change a filter, your whole system is upgraded and renewed.
Please be aware that there are many counterfeit units for sale internationally and in Australia without the improvements we made to the AlkaStream.
Unfortunately many are using our trademark without our permission, and people who have been deceived are coming to us under the impression that we will support them. We cannot support these sales and we are actively pursuing vendors using our trademark without our permission.
