What is the difference between Spring Aqua and Ionizer?

Spring Aqua



Pure Like Spring Water
There are several mountain springs that attract millions of people annually due to the healing properties of the water. These are known as the “healing” or “curative” waters. Scientists studied the layers of rocks and water content so that we could deliver the ECO System (Mountain in A box) into your home professionally installed.


Drinking clean water is essential in promoting good health.

14 Filter Technology
14 filtration system, SGS Approved, removal of pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, heavy metals, bacteria, viruses, and chemicals.

Fresh Clean Water
Spring Aqua water is “fresh water” from the faucet, it is not “stored water” in a tank or a bottle. Simply pour the water into a glass in your kitchen and drink.

No Waste
It does not waste and drain any water.

No Electricity
Energy Independent, no power is required, 100% natural flow from the water pressure coming from your home.

Simple to Maintain
A simple maintenance schedule of changing filters every 1600 gallons or 18 months will ensure the quality of drinking water.


Medical Grade Faucet
Faucet is SGS Certified Medical Surgical Grade 316-L Stainless steel. This prevents the leaching of the metal from the faucet into the drinking water.

Filters Customized by Region
Water quality is different region by region; therefore, filters are localized by region to accommodate the type of water in the local communities.


Professionally Installed
Professional Installation by a certified licensed, bonded, and insured contractor.


Amazing Warranty
Standard purchase includes up to 15-year warranty.


Continuous Updates
Filters are certified up to 18 months before filter change is required. This process allows customers to receive the latest and newest improved filters models during filter change cycles.


NSF Manufactured
Manufactured in an NSF certified facility. This guarantees the manufacturer is current on all sanitation and quality assurance processes.


SGS Certified
Spring Aqua is SGS Certified and Tested


Hydrogen Water
1.4ppm-1.6ppm in dissolved molecular hydrogen (H2). H2 is gaining significant attention from academic researchers, medical doctors, and physicians around the world for its recently reported therapeutic potential and a very strong antioxidant.

Alkaline Water
Alkaline water pH of 9.2-9.5. Blood that is slightly alkaline, or 7.35 to 7.45, is optimal for proper body functions. Most people with an imbalance are too acidic which can cause a variety of health ailments. By drinking alkaline water is an attempt to help balance the body’s pH.

Cooking and Drinking Water
pH of 7.8-8.2 left side faucet water for drinking coffee, tea, and the application of cooking with clean water.

Micro-Clustered Water

By drinking water that contains fewer molecules, or micro-clustered you can hydrate your body more quickly and effectively, enhance energy levels, improve your overall aerobic capacity and health and prevent premature aging. [L3]

Mineral Water
Minerals added back into water as Micro-Nutrients. The Maifan Stone is a special mineral rock used in Chinese Medicine is purified at high temperature to remove impurities, therefore leaving it in the pure crystal form. It is known for some of its trace minerals like calcium, iron, copper, zinc, magnesium, and selenium.

Water Ionizer



A water ionizer (also known as an alkaline ionizer) is a home appliance which raises the pH of drinking water by using electrolysis to separate the incoming water stream into acidic and alkaline components. The treated water is called alkaline water. [D1]



Many alkaline water ionizers do NOT filter your water. The machines that do come with filters very often do not adequately filter most of the contaminants found in tap water. [C1]

Water ionizers work by simply siphoning off the water near the cathode. Water siphoned off the cathode side contains increased levels of hydroxide (OH−) and would be expected to have a higher pH (i.e. be more alkaline), whereas water siphoned off near the anode would have increased levels of H+ making it acidic [C2], which may be considered wasted water drained down the sink.

The effectiveness of the process is debatable because electrolysis requires significant amounts of time and power; hence, the amount of hydroxide that could be generated in a fast-moving stream of water such as a running tap would be minimal at best. [C3]

Corrosion, oxidation, and degradation of the electrodes are common problems with electrolysis.  Most water ionizers use platinum-coated titanium electrodes. Platinum is very inert and thus does not react with the electrolytes or products during electrolysis. This also increases the longevity of the machine. The electrodes undergo deterioration, which may adversely affect one’s health. [C4]



The mildly acidic water (pH 4-6), also known as “beauty water”, is touted to have benefits as an astringent for beauty and cosmetology. However, no specific article testing electrolyzed mildly acidic water could be located. [S1]

Unfortunately, the mildly acidic water (pH 4-6) often contains chlorine (produced during electrolysis) and thus becomes a dilute hypochlorous acid solution.7 Most commercial units filter the chlorine (Cl2) out of the water before it undergoes electrolysis, but the common chloride electrolytes are not removed. [S2]

Strong acidic water, known as electrolyzed oxidizing water (EOW), a P.H lower than 2.7, is produced via electrolysis. If you choose to use EOW in place of conventional chemicals for sterilization, disinfection, and sanitization, you must first verify that the machine can produce water that would meet EPA standards. One cannot simply assume that the EOW produced from these machines will always be effective, as this may result in negative health effects. Moreover, the lower the pH the stronger the chlorine content, but the less effective the killing power. Thus one cannot assume that a strong “chlorine” smell is indicative of an effective EOW solution. [S3]

Electrolyzed alkaline water is produced via electrolysis of a NaCl solution at the cathode side. The resultant product is a solution of sodium hydroxide (NaOH) with a pH of 11-13.8 and a negative ORP of  -750 to -900 mV due to the dissolved hydrogen gas.  It may also contain small amounts of platinum-nano particles as the NaCl increases the propensity of degrading the electrode plates. [S4]


Technology is to promote alkaline water. It can generate alkaline water pH from 8.0 to 14.0

Produces mostly undissolved molecular hydrogen. [L5]

Does not micro-cluster. [L6]

This cathodic water is considered a functional water because it is used for cleansing, rinsing, disinfecting, lipid extraction, etc. It can readily saponify oils, making it a useful washing agent for greasy or oily areas. This also gives it the ability to reduce the pesticides on produce by soaking the vegetables in this water for 10-30 minutes.
