Most municipal water supplies have calcium added to bring the alkalinity of the water supply up. This added calcium doesn't increase the waters hydrogen ion content. The molecular make up of water as we know is H²O (two parts hydrogen ions and one part oxygen). Without the hydrogen ions, fluids have limited ability to transport oxygen. As Dr. Carrel (Nobel Prize Winner) said, "The cell is immortal; it is merely the fluid in which it floats that degenerates. Renew this fluid at intervals, give the cells what they require for nutrition, and as far as I know, the pulsation of life will go on forever".
With all this talk of ORP (Oxidisation Reduction Potential) and pH (Power of Hydrogen), how does this effect the water. In the video below, see what happens when ordinary tap water is measured for ORP and pH using scientific measuring meters. Then we test the water that comes out of the UltraStream filtration medium for pH (alkalinity) & ORP, and this is very impressive!
Real time measurement of pH & ORP readings
The UltraStream water filter ionisers the water molecules inside the filter chamber creating hydrogen gas. The increased hydrogen ion content can result in the water molecules expanding within the filter chamber. As the water expands in the filter chamber, the water must go somewhere so the UltraStream can drip from the spout in the beginning. With this in mind, it can be helpful to keep your UltraStream water spout over the sink :-)
