Navigating the Waters: A Deep Dive into the World of H2O
Reverse Osmosis Water: The Underdog's Rise
The Pitch: Often seen as the little brother to distilled water, it’s always been the underrated choice. But here’s where it makes its mark: it’s known in the inner circles as “purified water”, achieved by pushing water through dedicated membranes. Think of it as the ‘Moneyball’ strategy of filtering – efficient and underrated.
Cons: The one hiccup? It’s demineralized. But insiders know it’s often remineralized post purification, making it a silent contender.
Distilled Water: The Veteran
Cons: But every veteran has its Achilles heel. For distilled water, it’s the lack of beneficial minerals. The water purists’ debate still rages on this point.
Alkaline Water: The Trendsetter
By the Numbers
Pros: Riding the wave of the alkaline diet trend, it’s got the health gurus and fitness buffs talking.
Cons: But here’s the catch: a World Health Organization report threw a bit of shade, warning against the constant consumption of low-mineral water
Hydrogen Water: The Game-Changer
Behind the Scenes: Picture a molecule so tiny but powerful, it’s the unsung hero. Hydrogen molecules in this water are like the stealth players in a big league, acting as antioxidants.
The Stats Room
Pros: Diving into the stats, research indicates potential in combating inflammation, turbocharging energy, and managing those pesky free radicals.
Cons: But here’s the cliffhanger: it’s like that high-value stock – pricey and with major claims still under scrutiny.
ACE-13 vs. UCE-13 PLUS
- Both contenders enter the ring with a pH range of 1.7 – 12.5 and the Hydrogen Boost Technology up their sleeve.
- ACE-13, the more straightforward of the two, connects straight to your tap. UCE-13 PLUS, on the other hand, is a bit more high-tech, positioning itself under the counter but with a swanky touchscreen faucet for company.
- Dive deeper, and both have an ace in the hole: a double membrane 0.01 micron active carbon / EM ceramics filter combined with a 10 Stage UltraFilter (UF) Membrane Filter.
- When the bell rings for a filter change, you’ve got roughly 9 months or 3,600 liters.
