BUILD YOUR OWN

-OH ALKALINE WATER

pH & ORP IONIZER

  By  FEASTS Of The LORD. NET

–OH Alkaline Water Ionizers price range from $1000 to $4000, yet it is very simple to produce the same end results for far less money AND with a better quality of water.  However, it will require a certain amount of time and effort (see chart below), in contrast to more expensive machines that produce ionized water on demand. 

Most ionizers do not filter the tap water and use the minerals and anything else that’s in the water as ingredients to develop ionized –OH Alkaline water.

Alternatively, the “Berkey” gravity-fed water filtration products use a new technology to manufacture a filter that removes most undesirable elements similar to a reverse-osmosis water filtration system.  Both the "Berkey" and RO systems cost less than $300 and produce a better quality of water; however both are missing the minerals necessary to develop ionized water. 

One method is to replace the minerals removed with Calcium.  This can be accomplished by adding 1 to 4 tablets of “Prelief” (Calcium Glycerophosphate; 130mg Calcium) per 1 liter of water, which produces an alkaline water of 8.0 to 9.5 pH and an Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) of up to -150 to -500 millivolts when the water is ionized.

All that’s left to do is to ionize the water through a simple method similar to charging a battery:

First purchase a water filtration system, such as either a “Berkey” or a Reverse-Osmosis (RO) water system, then the following items in order to build your own water ionizer: 

Purchase two 1-gallon plastic water containers; attach a stainless steel plate to the bottom of the lid with a 3/8" x 1.5" bolt and wing nut on the top of the lid in order to provide terminals to attach to the battery charger.  Then attach the platinum electrodes to the stainless steel plates (Note: pre soak and remove sticky substance).  Cut a 2-inch diameter CPVC pipe into a 6-inch length and cut 2 corresponding holes between the 2 plastic water containers. Then insert the PVC pipe between the two containers and seal with epoxy glue on exterior. This allows the migration of Hydrogen ions and -OH ions to opposite water containers.  Wrap each end of the PVC pipes with a piece of chamois to act as a filter between the 2 containers (acid and base water).  Purchase two spigots and CPVC pipe fittings to install 2 CPVC water faucets.  Then simply fill both containers with the filtered water from either the “Berkey” or RO water filtration system.  Add the desired amount (1-4 tablets / liter) of crushed and disolved Calcium Glycerophosphate (see web page, and chart below), and then attach the battery charger until the required ORP is achieved. Note: Plug the "manual" battery charger into a timer.  Upon filling the tanks with water, loosen the clamps holding the chamois and allow water into the pipe.

Note: The timing to charge the water will depend upon the type of battery charger, volume of water and amount of Calcium added back into the water.  Therefore a pH/ORP meter ($100) is necessary to determine completion of ionization to the required ORP.  I  recommend the "Hanna" brand combined pH and ORP meter.The ORP is pre calibrated at the factory, and the pH can be recalibrated as desired.

Below are pictures of the various products necessary to build your own home-made water ionizer at a cost of approximately $150. 

This results in a final cost of approximately $550 when the cost of a water filtration system ($300) and test meter ($100) is added.

However, the electrical bill increased over $100 per month and it required much effort to maintain. Consequently I ultimately just bought a professionally made unit; see recommendation.

Ionized alkaline water and acid ionized water made by electrolysis have the following chemical characteristics:

(+)2H20  -à  O2 + 4H+ + 4e- + 1.229v(Eo)

(-)2H20 + 2e- -à H2 + 2OH-  + 0.828v(Eo)

With electrolysis, the water at the cathode or negative pole produces alkaline ionized water (OH-) and positively charged ionized minerals such as calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium.

Consequently the anode (+) pole has hydrogen (H+) ions because the oxygen gas (O2) generates acidic ions such as chlorine, sulfur and phosphorus.
