What does the Design & Construction of your Alkaline Water Machine say about its Quality & Intended Lifespan?

In general you can separate ionized alkaline water machines into two classifications based on their design. Older designs will utilize a transformer for a power system and a single filter. Newer designs will have a Switch Mode Power Supply or SMPS power system and a dual stage filtration system. Aside from the warranty and return policy, this should be one of the major water ionizer consumer comparison guidelines to utilize when shopping because it indicates the quality and lifespan you can expect to get out of any particular machine.

A common characteristic is that units which have transformers as a power system tend to have shorter warranties. This is because transformers may or may not last a long period of time, in general they tend to burn out depending on the amount of use. The benefit of using a transformer is that they are very cheap, so machines which have a transformer as a power system tend to be lower in price in addition to having a shorter warranty. You should consider units with transformers to be of lower quality and have a shorter lifespan. The benefit here is that you can get a machine relatively cheaply when compared to other more advanced designs. The exception of course is the Enagic Kangen alkaline water machines which are sold through multi-level marketing networks, or direct selling networks, or whatever else they are calling it these days. In this type of selling structure many people earn a commission on the sale of the device (this is the defining characteristic of the sales structure), which leads to very high retail prices to pay out the commission structure. In reality the Kangen water machines are not being sold by distributors so much as too make money off of the sale, the distributors are primarily trying to recruit you into their marketing network by getting you too then sell Kangen water ionizers yourself under them. This allows them to make a commission off of your sales as well if you ever sell a machine. This sort of marketing, where you make money or a commission off the work and sales of others in your group or sales team is called Multi-Level Marketing or MLM for short.

The focus here is not to simply sell machines to consumers, but to recruit individuals into your sales team so you can then in turn make money off of their sales. Thus you are not only selling the product produced by the MLM, you are ALSO selling a position in the sales chain’s commission structure. Theoretically you will then build a larger and larger sales force underneath you and be on your way to making a substantial income by earning commissions on the sales of every one in your sales team. This selling structure tends to resemble a pyramid scheme, with distributors at the top being the distributors who jumped on board at the initial start of the selling plan and have all other distributors beneath them (these would be the few success stories that the MLM will proudly showcase to potential new recruits). Due to the funneling of commissions up the sales chain it is a mathematical certainty that nearly all players who join the marketing network late in the game will exit the sales structure at a net loss, since they are purchasing a position at the bottom of the sales chain. The sales chain would need to grow exponentially forever for ALL new distributors to build up a substantial sales force beneath them, this is an impossibility due to the law of diminishing returns and a finite population of potential recruits.

A Near Mathematical Certainty of Failure

In order to survive, the MLM needs to constantly bring in new recruits, of which new recruits suffer a near 95% failure rate due to the factors mentioned above and since it is very hard to sell the product which the MLM’s produce since they are significantly overpriced when compared to competitor products. Not only are the MLM’s products over priced when compared to competitor products, often times they are also inferior. This is because the MLM will seek to reduce as much as possible the production cost of its products so that it can devote a larger share of the profits pie to paying out commissions in its distributor network.

In the comparisons chart above, you can clearly see that all of the Kangen water ionizer machines utilize the older cheaper design which has a transformer for a power system, a single filter, and a shorter warranty. While they utilize the older design, other companies have incorporated newer designs which use an SMPS power system in place of a transformer. The biggest advantage here is that the SMPS power system has a very long lifespan. These power systems can last for twenty to thirty years or more and do not burn out like transformers due. As a result you can see that machines with SMPS power systems tend to have a longer warranty, since they are constructed of longer lasting higher quality components they generally will never need warranty servicing and are given lifetime warranties. Newer designs also have better dual stage filtration systems in addition to built in automatic cleaning systems so you do not have to clean them manually.
