We don't just say we are the #1 water ionizer manufacturer. We prove it!

An ionizer is a serious investment, so who you buy from is important. We are oldest direct importer in the USA. Between our two founding partners you get over 33 years of USA-specific ionizer industry expertise. Virtually all our USA competitors started with us as dealers including Life IonizersTM, Tyent, Echo and Chanson. We have helped develop and launch major new ionization technology that have been emulated by many others, such as mesh plates and improved cleaning systems. We have been instrumental in launching and supplying ionization components for commercial applications. Most notably, we supply Tennant Company, water cells for their Ec-H2O floor cleaning product line. Ec-H2O was the first commercially successful application of ionization technology and has won numerous international awards.

Together, our OEM partners offer 69 years of ionizer manufacturing. They both hold ISO 9001 and 14001 certifications, own patents too numerous to list, and have won many awards for their business practices and products. Both are firmly rooted in ongoing research and development and in quality management practices.

You can trust that our history, experience, knowledge and partnerships allow us to source top performing products from the best manufacturers in the world. Manufacturers that carry the best certifications and the latest cutting edge technology - ensuring you will make the best purchase.

Smart Shopper's Shortcut

What you need to know...

Other companies offer you only one choice of ionizer brand. They are an “exclusive importer” and have no other choice. Their volume isn’t big enough to have an exclusive with more than one manufacturer meaning one option in brand and technology. They’ll tell you why theirs is the best and no one else’s is any good. You get no choice. We think all the top models make a good alteration to water. The similarity ends there. The differences are in filtration power, technology, sophistication, design, manufacturing quality and durability. Our unique focus is on the importance of clean water. Our filter performance (and testing) can’t be matched. We are the only company who represents two top manufacturers offering models that fill different niches. We offer you the best of the best – in filtration, ionizer performance, durability and customer experience. That is choice. That is smart.

Here is a sampling of industry-first innovations AlkaViva has brought to market:

Electrode Technology Advancements:

  • First to launch mesh electrodes.
  • Robotically sprayed platinum coating technique that results in precise and highly uniform electrode surface.
  • Introduced the new Smart Electrodes which deliver the highest efficiency and performance in producing ORP and H2 alteration.
  • The only company to offer proprietary membrane technology.

Cleaning System Advancements:

  • Introduced the first automatic reverse cleaning system - MARC. A single reversible motor driven system that creates a 1:1, acid to alkaline cleaning ratio, to protect ionizers from damaging scale build-up. It eliminates the need to wait during cleaning.
  • Launched DARC the first dual solenoid-driven automatic reverse cleaning system with the highly effective 1:1, acid to alkaline cleaning ratio, with no wait while cleaning.
  • Launched DARC II Cleaning System – we improved DARC by eliminating the two solenoids and their metal actuators (which are susceptible to scaling) and replaced them with non-scaling ceramic offering better durability.

Filtration Advancements:

  • First ionizer company to offer USA-made (non-Asian) filters.
  • First ionizer filter capable of handling chloramine and heavy metals.
  • First multiple media-bed ionizer filter.
  • Launched the first dual filter ionizer model.
  • The only water ionizer manufacturer to offer onboard (internal) scale inhibiting technology.
  • Unsurpassed UltraWaterTM Filtration Technology.
  • More external pretreatment options to handle a wide range of unique water quality issues.
  • The first water ionizer manufacturer in USA to offer non-electric ionization technology.

Independent Testing:

  • The first and only company to offer third-party EPA certified lab test results against 249 contaminants (reducing virtually all of them by 99.9%).
  • The first and only company to offer third-party EPA certified lab testing for ionizer performance.


  • The first to offer a dedicated under sink model with remote tower.
  • The first to offer color LCD screens to identify the selected water type.
  • The company with the longest history as an exclusive importer (since 2004 with Emco Tech).
  • The only Better Business Bureau accredited company with a 15- year track record as A+ rated.
  • Compare H2 Series to Other Brands.
