The new Edge-9 Turbo Water Ionizer from Tyent is the highest ranked in the 9-plate class due to our testing results and has Tyent’s “no-hassle” lifetime warranty and 75-day trial. However – the Edge 9000T falls short of the ACE-13 and 11-series.
Tyent ACE-13 Above-Counter Extreme
The eco-friendly ACE-13 is chock-full of cutting-edge “never-before-seen” features and upgrades that cement this gorgeous Tyent 13-plate machine as the top countertop water ionizer in the world. Tyent’s consumer-friendly 75-day trial, lifetime warranty, and A+ BBB rating are also industry-leading features to look forward to when you discover the difference of the ACE-13.
If you’re looking for a good buy under $2,000 you can probably stop right here. The Hydropathy Asio is definitely worth the price. This molecular hydrogen infusing machine isn’t a water ionizer – so you can’t make acidic water for various beauty and household uses.
The Tyent ACE-11 is no longer the top countertop water ionizer in the world, but the machine is still among the most effective and technologically advanced in its class. Tyent’s 75-day trial, lifetime warranty, and A+ BBB rating are also amazing features to look forward to whenever purchasing one of their machines.
Tyent’s 9090 Turbo Extreme is one of our top picks in the counter top water ionizer category. Large hybrid mesh plates and 375 watts of power make it a real performer in almost any source water.
This is the most technologically advanced under-counter water ionizer we’ve found on the market so far.
The Jupiter Athena is IonWays top of the line counter top water ionizer. The Athena is a 5-plate water ionizer with dual filtration, good audio/visual alerts, on-board flow control and mineral port operating at a maximum of 80 watts of power.
It’s a good basic budget water ionizer. No frills but good performance for the price. If you’re willing to pay a little more you can get more “bang for your buck” with another model like the Hydropathy but still, overall the Melody/Isis water ionizer from IonWays will give you the basics you expect from a water ionizer.
Overall, the Delphi does seem to perform well. We like the advanced features available on other models a bit more – like the ability to customize presets based on your source water. We think the price is a little high for a 5-plate water ionizer, even given the under-counter design
The Chanson VS70 is a good “budget friendly” under-counter water ionizer. In our tests it performed as well as expected and we were pleased with the advanced features available for the price. At $2,395 it’s probably the most affordable under counter model. As with all water ionizers, the VS70 has it’s pros and cons.
As far as performance, our SD501 tests went well. This machine was capable of producing multiple levels of alkaline and acidic ionized water using various source water with no problems. Getting the stronger alkaline and acidic levels required either slowing the flow rate at the faucet, adding a chemical enhancer solution that came with the unit or a combination of both.
