At last, we can offer you a water alkalizer / ioniser that we have helped design based on our extensive market knowledge and technical expertise.
The AlkaWay Kangen™ 7 Water Alkaliser was chosen and refined by the AlkaWay team. Their ten years of experience in distributing and supporting water ionizers means the collaboration has produced a better model than the original Chanson system.

Over ten years of operation we have seen many water alkalisers, ionizers and their local sellers come and go.
Today more than ever, new makers are all making claims about performance, history and technical superiority.
We found Chanson to be a well established, solid company. Up until now they have concentrated on supporting a robust Taiwan customer base. They have their own retail outlets plus over 50 distributors with a healthy annual turnover and excellent R&D.
In testing of the Kangen™ 7 water alkaliser we found excellent ORP and pH, equal to semi-commercial Japanese models double the price.
Its seven plates translate into greater higher and lower end performance. This means it can also produce true super-oxide acid water with excellent bacteriological ability.
After ten years of supporting thousands of Emco Tech Jupiter water ionizers we believe we are the best in the industry to comment on maintenance. The Kangen™ 7 Ionizer carries a full 2 year all parts and labour warranty + free labour (more info). As a national distributor we are keenly aware of the need for minimal maintenance overhead. The Kangen™ 7 is very well constructed and maintenance is simple 'swap over' component design.
Although it has a small footprint and occupies around 20% less bench space than other models, it is not overcrowded internally, meaning less challenging and faster repair turnaround.
There are so many systems on the market that a rather unreal situation has evolved. Buyers are being urged to choose from a bewildering array of comparative facts and figures including (in the main) ORP and pH performance.
This began with the arrival of the MLM (Multilevel Marketing) Enagic machine; a large, old style unit with high pH and low acid ability. MLM flourishes by massive market penetration but this is inevitably accompanied by relatively ill-educated face to face selling. Hence the trap of comparing ORP and pH became the way people were told they should evaluate ionizers.

The AlkaWay Kangen™ 7 water ionizer performance is equal to any other model.
But it fulfils other equally - or more -
important functions the marketers of other ionizers ignore;
Some ionizers are BIG. They occupy valuable real estate on kitchen benches which is traditionally the domain of the matriarch of the family. In this sense, smaller is definitely more beautiful.
Some systems on the market disguise poor technical performance and construction with glossy selling of all sorts of whiz bang add-ons, but poor technical performance is the hidden giant with some of the bigger names (not Emco Tech!)
Ease of Use:
Varying self-clean systems make a system easier or harder to use. Some self-clean systems cause serious problems when used in harder water areas. Some self-clean systems intrude on the user experience and confuse older or younger users. The Kangen™ 7 uses a simple periodic cleanse with audio and screen alert to ensure the user knows exactly what is happening.
The quest for ever higher performance and add-ons comes, in our experience, at a price.
'Normal use' is daily home operation -getting water from the unit at around 8.5 to 9.5 pH. Extreme performance in some units has come from deliberately manipulating voltages which causes premature longevity problems. The design of the Kangen™ 7 Ionizer is recent; its basic model was released early this year, and in our opinion, the important relationship of plate size and voltage have been designed well.
While the filter in the Kangen 7 appears better than competitor's units due to its carbon block design, we have found the filter to be less effective than our other water ionizers.
In particular, it does not have activated silver in the filter, and this reduces its antibacterial power.
For this reason we include a free high-rated high capacity prefilter with every Kangen 7. This prefilter, the CBC-10 from Pentek, is also carbon block design, effective to 0.5 micron. It also uses activated carbon, meaning it has antibacterial ability. It comes with its own casing and is installed inline between the tap and the Kangen 7.
If you want to remove fluoride, we can also supply a fluoride reduction filter.
Voice Responses: English language, real person pronunciation.
Safety First: Flow rate detection and heat sensor to prevent excessive usage. Alarm message in case of low flux.
Alarm message and ionization disabled during hot water inflow.
Auto Functions: Automatic sensing of incoming water pressure and temperature. Very important; not available on any other model; means more stable pH output. Adjusts the electrolysis amperage automatically to keep alkaline levels consistent. Not found on any other ionizer.
Economy and safety: LCD displays filter life, pH value, clock, time, over-heated water temperature alarm and malfunction alarm.
Antibacterial: Comes with Pentek CBC-10 solid block 0.5 micron prefilter and casing. This is supplied free by AlkaWay.
User Safety: Intellectual LOCK Keypad: Micro-adjust & pH value locked to prevent kids and older adults drinking high settings.
Correct output: Low Water Pressure shown on Display
Latest design User Panel: Anti UV, free of leaking, abrasion & scratch, fast colour, easy to clean and All-In-One (keypad & panel). Note: Many other models are non flame-resistant plastic that fade quickly.
Simplicity: Extremely easy filter change from left case. ('Green' filter)
Check it yourself: Comes with pH testing solution and colour chart.
Easy installation of unit next to or over the sink.
Fully automated integrated circuitry.
Longevity: Minimized mineral deposits using patented TSCF ( Triple self-clean function ) system self-cleanse system.
Flexibility: Calcium may be added through an exterior opening, extending the range of pH selection.
Quality: High quality ceramic ion exchange membrane. Built by the manufacturer; not out sourced.
Quality:Platinum Coated titanium high area plate design for maximised electrolytic effect.
Legal: CE, NSF approved.
Adaptable: The water supply can vary a lot from area to area in your country.
Because of this difference in source water, an ionizer at the same alkaline settings will produce different alkaline levels; a filter in different water quality condition will a have different filter life; Self-Clean in different water quality condition will call up a different frequency of Self-Cleaning.
The AlkaWay Kangen™ 7 has this unique auto-adjust ability for expected water filter life and times of self-clean according to your water quality.
