How AlkaWay Began
In 2000 an old friend came to see us. Victor was a ‘mad professor’ type of guy, always talking about the hidden properties of water, how to run cars on water.. and this time he was very excited. “Ian, I’ve found it!” he said. And there it was, the Jupiter Mavello water ionizer. “I’ve been trying to do this myself for years!” said Victor, “And all this time, the Koreans already had it!”
I’m relatively skeptical of mad professors unless their madness has actually manifested in real inventions, but we both loved Victor. He had retired at age 30 from a highly successful fashion career – not exactly the sort of background to engender confidence in scientific breakthroughs.
Victor set up the water ionizer on the sink, raving about the effect the water had had on him already. I took a drink. It was light and seemed to just slip down – unlike the usual bloating feeling I was used to with tap water. Cassie took a glass, drank it all and looked at me with a huge beaming smile. “We’ve got to have this!” she said.
To cut a long story short, we became the Australian distributors for Jupiter Dong Yang (later EmcoTech) water ionizers. We extended into New Zealand and introduced them to a friend in the US who is now the world’s largest Emco dealer.
From working out of our garage, ten years ago we moved into our first real ‘office’ and around 5 years ago moved into our present premises.
We now have around a dozen staff and dealers around the world. However, our biggest achievement and our constant source of satisfaction are the hundreds and hundreds of stories we still get from people whose lives we have changed for the better.
We’ve sold thousands of electric water ionizers but 4 years ago we took the huge step of designing and having manufactured our own hydrogen generating water ionizer that doesn’t need electricity. We’ve sold over nine thousand since we began with this new, simpler and far less expensive way of regaining health. It’s now in its fourth iteration, patent pending, and we are taking it to the world.
