Is a Water Ionizer Cheaper Than Bottled Alkaline Water?
A top of the range water ionizer is within the reach of most family budgets but remains a reasonably significant purchase compared to other kitchen appliances. So, it might come as a surprise to learn that water ionizers don’t just save the average family money in the long term – even a high-end machine will pay for itself in a couple of years.
Toxic Tap Water
How does that work? Millions of people no longer feel happy to drink tap water. Years of frightening data about toxic pollutants in America’s water have hit home: that glass of tap water might contain any number of dangerous contaminants.
And so, millions of people turned to drinking water out of plastic bottles. It seemed the logical solution, after all. Until the scale of the trauma being wreaked on the planet from disposable plastics – in many cases, plastic water bottles – could not be ignored any longer.
Cleaner, Greener, Cheaper Water with a Water Ionizer?
A water ionizer is a healthful, practical solution. It uses your source water, but advanced technology and filtration systems clean up the toxins and make your tap water safe to drink. Not only that, alkaline water comes with countless health benefits.
But let’s look at the cost of buying water in bottles, versus enjoying water from an ionizer.
Let’s use the example of a family of four people drinking approximately three or four 16-ounce bottles of water per day (the recommended eight x 8-ounce glasses of water). A 16.9-ounce bottle of water costs around 50 cents. If each family member drinks 3.5 bottles per day, that’s $1.75, or $7 per day for the whole family – more than $2500 every year.
That’s regular water, by the way. Make that bottled alkaline water and you’re looking at an even more expensive way to hydrate your loved ones! Try about $15,000 a year on for size. Wow! Suddenly, water ionizers look like a real bargain – and really the only smart and healthy choice quite honestly.
Save Money and The Planet!
Over a year, the annual cost of drinking bottled alkaline water runs into thousands of dollars. Now look at the price of a water ionizer. The math has it. A water ionizer pays for itself quickly and you can sleep easy, knowing that your family is drinking safe, clean, freshly-ionized alkaline water – and you’re no longer part of the plastics problem.
