What is Alkaline Water?Alkaline water is also known as Kangen water in Japan and literally means "return to original." Alkaline water has been used in Japan for more than 40 years and has been shown to help restore the body to its original, healthy condition. When tested for ORP (oxidizing reduction potential), it shows a NEGATIVE reading. It has an adjustable pH reading of 8.5 - 9.5, making it alkaline, which is the opposite of acidic.
Alkaline Water is the alkaline part -- with settings of 8.5, 9, and 9.5
How are the machines sold?
The machines are sold through direct sales -- that is you meet someone (us) who is a distributor, we help you with your research and when you decide to take positive action, we help you with the paperwork. Your order is processed and your machine is shipped out in 2-3 business days. (In some cases, you can pick up a machine locally.)
Where can I get a new filter, some more electrolysis enhancer, a calcium cartridge or other accessories for the machines?

How is the water made?
The process for making the water is very simple. The machine simply connects to your faucet, you turn on the power, then the faucet and the magic begins. The regular tap water is initially purified by the internal filter and then ionized via electrolysis. This results in the water being separated into two types: alkaline (hydrogen-rich) and acidic (oxygen-rich).And all this combines to give the alkaline water a pure, fresh taste which keeps you hydrated and tastes better than any water you've had before.
Better yet, you can make as much of it as you want, saving you dollar after dollar that would have previously been spent on bottled water that is just no substitute.see more here
What has the Japanese Research shown?
This is a medically tested and proven approach to preventive action. The Japanese Ministry of Health - the equivalent of the FDA here in the USA - is very strict. They reject application after application for pharmaceutical drugs, and yet have approved the Kangen Water Machine units as medical devices. Keep this in mind. This isn't just an appliance for your home, it's a medical device. see more here
What are the uses of Alkaline/acidic water?
The uses are many, but the single greatest benefit remains improved intestinal and colon health. As you already know, a large portion of the free radicals in your body are created by a toxic colon. Free radicals also account for 70% of chronic diseases, such as cancer and diabetes. Every day you remain dehydrated and every day you don't take action against the free radicals and acid build-up throughout your bowels and body, you are basically encouraging disease in your body.
What is the basic, correct way of drinking Kangen water(TM)?
There are no set rules regarding how to drink Kangen water or how much to consume, but there appear to be two main ways. The first is for people who are healthy and have a structured lifestyle and steady daily rhythm. Such individuals can drink Kangen water anyway they want. (No such thing as "too much")
The second way is for individuals who are ill, weak, or generally inactive and trying to benefit from the four effects of Kangen water(recognized by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare) to improve medical conditions. In this case, it is best to drink small amounts (1/2 of a cup) every 30 minutes or so. Individuals who drink a cup of freshly made Kangen water in the morning, and just before bed are less likely to suffer from the rebound phenomena.
How do we begin drinking Kangen water?
It is most common to begin by setting a low pH level (between pH8 and pH9.0), and gradually increasing the amount of intake. After continuing regular intake for about two weeks, gradually adjust the pH level and amount of intake (between pH9.0-pH9.5) based on your bodily needs and physical condition. The Kangen water should be as fresh as possible. For children or seniors, set the pH level at an even lower level upon starting, and gradually increase it as the body adjusts to the current pH level. In the case of infants (until about a year old), since breast milk or milk is the only thing they consume, the intestinal movement is generally different from adults, and the use of Kangen water is not encouraged until the infant begins to consume more sophisticated foods. In any case, Kangen water should not be used to make powdered milk for infants.
What is the white fogginess in Kangen water?
The white fogginess apparent in Kangen water is simply a result of hydrogen gas being released through electrolysis, and does not pose a problem. If you rest the glass for a while the white fogginess should disappear. Research focused on dissolved hydrogen released through electrolysis of water was presented at The Japan Functional Water Association Meeting1 in late December of 2002. It reported that Kangen water is effective in controlling the oxidation of lipids in the body. It also reported that dissolved hydrogen 2 present in the colloidal 3 state has a higher activity level than active hydrogen 4 produced at the instance of reaction. Based on this report, the need for broader data collection and further scientific analysis was recognized.
Why does Kangen water sometimes smell?
Unpurified water has minerals in it. LeveLuk is designed to handle a standard amount of minerals. When the amount of minerals or free carbon dioxideis greater than usual, the minerals occasionally react with the anti-bacterial feature of the water supply hose, giving off a smell.
How many years does the electrolysis cell remain effective?
The electrode plate in LeveLuk's electrolysis cell is thicker and larger than other companies' products. The appliance is designed this way in order to increase electrolysis capacity and durability. Another important reason is to guarantee the production of maximum volumes of water. The electrode plate is made of top quality titanium, and the welded terminals are plated with white gold. Needless to say, due to this choice of materials, the electrode plate is completely rustproof. The electrolysis cell is to a water production appliance what the engine generator is to a car. We can recommend our products with the utmost confidence because we use only the best materials. Our electrolysis cell and control (PCB) secures a high ORP, and produces safe, healthy and delicious water. The automatic cleaning mechanism ensures that the electrolysis cell is always clean, and it should last 15 years.
What is the difference between LeveLuk's electrolysis cell and those of other companies?
Electrolysis of water requires high quality electrolysis plates, and its size, thickness, and number becomes crucial in maintaining durability. The "double cross line" methodis used by other companies. In these appliances, two small electrolysis cells are used in turn to provide resting time, but this limits the volume of water than can be produced at one time. LeveLuk on the other hand, has five or seven electrolysis plates, the largest number in the industry, and while maintaining durability via their large surface area and thickness, they allow the appliance to produce large volumes of water (maximum Kangen water (TM): 0.8-2.0 gallons/minute).
Every function, such as supplying voltage according to switching of the pH setting and producing highly acidic water in the same electrolysis cell, is carefully monitored by the microcomputer. It ensures that the appliance can be used safely for a long period of time. We recommend that you produce "beauty water" once a day for at least three minutes to improve the appliance's durability.
What is the proper method of strong Kangen water(TM)/strong acidic water, and how long do they last?
Among the five types of water produced by LeveLuk, the two types for drinking (purified water / Kangen water) can go bad due to the container or temperature, because chlorine, which works as a bactericide, has been removed from the water. For this reason, greater care must be given to the storing of purified water and Kangen water. Please keep these two types of water in the refrigerator for no more than 5 days and replace the water in your take-out bottle everyday. For water used for domestic purposes, including acidic water, strong acidic water and strong Kangen water, less care is required, but we recommend changing your supply once a week. To store, please place the water in a lightproof container, fill it to the very top to avoid unnecessary contact with air, and store it in a cool, dark place (the refrigerator is ideal).
Why doesn't Kangen water turn the pH testing solution blue (purple)?
Kangen water produces a yellow/green color (neutral reading) in pH testing solutions even if it made on the setting for pH 9.5. This phenomenon is often observed in areas where well water is used. This is caused by the carbon dioxide in well water, which is produced from decomposing organic matter. Carbon dioxide readily dissolves in water, making it acidic. Water with carbon dioxide can be electrolyzed, however, the carbon dioxide is neutralized during the process. Therefore the water tests neutral on the pH scale. Driving out the carbon dioxide from Kangen water will result in the Kangen water expressing blue in pH test liquid. When measuring the pH using a pH testing solution, place a few drops in the flask before pouring in freshly made Kangen water. There is carbon dioxide in your Kangen water if the color turns blue initially, but eventually turns yellow.
Even water that tests neutral has been through the electrolytic process and has the benefits.
Do you recommend we only drink Alkaline water and forget about other supplements?
In general, we believe we need to do 4 things daily:
