What and Why of KDF 55 Filter Media?

What is KDF 55 Filter Media? KDF stands for Kinetic Degradation Fluxion. KDF® filter medium is a high-purity formulation of copper-zinc alloy that reduces contaminants such as chlorine, bacteria and heavy metals using a chemical process called redox, or oxidation-reduction.  The unique combination of copper and zinc creates an electro-chemical reaction. And during this redox reaction, free electrons are transferred between molecules and new elements are created, changing harmful contaminants into harmless components. Chlorine, for instance, a previously harmful substance is changed into harmless, water-soluble chloride, which is then carried through water. Similarly, some heavy metals such as copper, lead, mercury and others,...

Decoding Alkaline Ionized Water

What is alkaline water?‘Alkaline’ refers to pH level, a number that ranges from 0 to 14. Something with a pH less than 7 is acidic and that with greater than 7 is alkaline. The pH of regular drinking water is around 7. Chemicals and gases can mix and react with water to change its ph level to make it acidic or alkaline. Because of higher pH level of Alkaline water, it can neutralize acids in the body. However, pH alone doesn’t give the water all the alkaline properties. Alkaline water must also contain negative oxidation reduction potential (ORP). What Is the ORP Level of...
