Water splash.There is a lot of talk about water filtration these days. While it’s not wrong to call the SD 501 Kangan Water® filter “a filter”, technically it’s NOT.

The fact is, that the Enagic SD 501 is an IONIZER, not a filter. While it HAS a filter, this is not the purpose of the machine. The purpose of the machine is to create pH balanced, restructured, healthy water.

Clean water is a whole other topic. Ionized water is Water that is more easily absorbed into the body and full of antioxidants. And the Kangan Water® filter is the gold standard or the ionizer world.


The Kangan Water® filter is a Medical Device in it’s country of origin. Japan. And in case you didn’t know, the Japanese have THE highest, strictest policies for medical certification anywhere.  It has been used in the finest hospitals in Japan for over 40 years.

It has the finest warranty in the market, and is the oldest most respected ionizer company in the world.

There are many cheaper ionizers out there, however, buyer beware. The Kangan Water® filter made by Enagic is the only ionizer that has a special cleaning cartridge and can be cleaned. While it takes minerals to ionize water, minerals are also the enemy of all ionizers. Therefore, ALL ionizers will eventually clog from calcium in the water. Machines without this cleaning feature are destined and designed to fail. The Enagic machines can also be taken apart to be deep cleaned. This is an important feature because if those plates are dirty you are no longer drinking ionized water and symptoms will soon return.

More important than any type of filter is the ionization process. Thant is why the Kangan Water® filter is the best. This process allows the water to penetrate the cells of the human body more efficiently and brings homeostasis (balance) 6 times faster than regular water.

The differences between ionizers are many. When you start looking at them online it gets very confusing. All of them claim to be the best. But which one do they all compare themselves to? Enagic. Enagic is also the only company whose business model is based on satisfied customers sharing the product with potential buyers.  When  looking at ionizers, the biggest factor is whether or not one is or is whether or not one GETS RESULTS. And you won’t get that from any of the other ionizers. Nor do they come with a manufacturers warranty. But the thing to know about warranties, if the manufacturer doesn’t back it, it isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on.
