Why do you need a Nikken water filter?

You’re here so I’m guessing you already know why you need a water filter for your drinking water.

  • chlorine and other chemicals in your drinking water
  • pollution and other contaminants in the water
  • tap water tastes and smells terrible
  • bottled water is expensive and no better than tap water

I don’t need to go into it any deeper than that.

So, why do you need a Nikken PiMag Water Filter?

The Nikken water filters meet various NSF standards for cleaning your drinking water. You will get clean water that is much safer to drink than what you get directly out of your tap.

What sets Nikken water filters apart from the rest is that they also alkalize and ionize your water.

Note: All items ship new from Nikken in California for US orders or from Nikken’s warehouse on Ontario for Canadian orders.

What’s the Deal with Alkaline Water?

You’ve heard a lot of talk about alkaline water, especially if you have been looking into Nikken’s water filters much.

Even under ideal conditions we have a lot of acidity in our bodies. The waste products from metabolizing our food, even if you eat an alkaline diet of veggies, are acids and toxins that need to be neutralized and eliminated. Drinking alkaline water helps the body deal with that. The alkaline water can get to the cells in our body, remove the toxins, help to restore an alkaline environment in the cell, and reduce the acidic load in the waste as it is transported away for elimination.

That’s under ideal conditions. How many people do you know eat a completely alkaline diet?

If you eat just about anything other than vegetables, you are adding extra acidity to you diet. I eat a little bit of chicken a couple times a week and the occasional cookie or ice cream. I drink alkaline water from my Nikken PiMag water filter to compensate for that.

Actually, alkaline water is just about all I drink. If you drink alkaline water exclusively, no sodas, for 30 days I bet you will not be able to go back to drinking sodas. There is no better diet drink than alkaline water.

Ionized Water

Ionized water is still a little bit new to me. At the time I’m writing this, Nikken’s ionizing technology has been available for less than a year. According to the AlkaViva website, these are the benefits of ionized water.

  • Ionized water is nature’s antioxidant. Ionized water has free negative ions that can neutralize free radicals, which is what antioxidants do.
  • Ionization improves the alkalinity of the water.
  • Ionized water is my hydrating than conventional tap water.
  • Ionized water improves the taste and quality of food because it hydrates and reduces acidity.

Water ionizers can be very expensive. They can run from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars. Nikken’s PiMag Waterfall and PiMag Sport Bottle are very inexpensive when compared to the other systems.

The PiMag Waterfall is a gravity water filter and does not require electricity. Just pour water in the top and gravity pulls it through the water filter and your clean water waits for you in the bottom.

the PiMag Sport Bottle is a filtered water bottle. Fill the bottle to the fill line and replace the lid. The filter cartridge is screwed in under the lid, so the bottle is a little top-heavy. The water gets filtered as you squeeze the bottle to drink.

The PiMag Counter Top Water Filtration System takes up less space than the PiMag Waterfall and connects by a hose to your water faucet. Turn on your cold water and pull the diverter valve to get fresh clean water. Please note – this system has been discontinued. It is an older technology that does not alkalize or ionize the water.

We want all of the water we come into contact with to be clean. The Nikken Shower Filter will clean the water that we use to clean ourselves. Find out more about why you need a shower filter here.

The PiMag water filters all have replacement components that need to be changed periodically. Make sure to take good care of your PiMag water filtration systems and they will take good care of you.

Whole House Water Filtration vs Point of Use

Most people seem to think that a whole-house water filtration system is a more ideal solution. I disagree and this is why. First, do you know what is in your pipes? They were probably glued or soldered together with toxic chemicals. You don’t know how long your water is going to sit in those pipes before you get around to using it. Second, why go to the expense to filter the water that you use to wash your clothes or to flush your toilet. Instead of wasting all of that water filtration just to flush it, I recommend only point-of-use systems like Nikken’s that filter your water as you need it so that you know it is the best it can be at the time that you use it.

    Sean,
    how long do you think they will offer replacement parts for the white pimag water system? I still think it’s phenomenal, have a spare new one which I’d never sell as well as a current countertop which I wouldn’t use unless the other was out of commission! I am faithful! and of course it was more expensive than anything that came later (I think?)

    the other question, the optimizer parts, how long will they be around? again I’ve never had a problem with it, run 3x a day and would hate to see it go.

    thanks!

    I’m totally a believer in water filters! Recently I lived for five years in a town in Mexico where some of the sewer pipes were higher than the water delivery pipes, not something to give you confidence! We used filtered water all the time there.

    I actually had an older Nikken water filter bottle that I carried when I traveled, both in Mexico and the US, but I was never sure if it was meant for some of the Mexican nasties. Anyway, I did fine with it and now am back in the US.

    Currently one of my water concerns is that very few people seem to store any water in their homes, yet it’s so essential. We have been without water at our house a few times this year while they worked on the system. Since I wouldn’t buy bottled water except in an emergency, I am with you on the cost and also on the environmental cost of all that plastic.

    • Thanks for the comment Zana and for sharing your experience with the older water bottle. When traveling and you are concerned about what nasties might be in the water, put in an iodine tablet to kill them. Then the filter in the bottle will remove the iodine and you have an added level of security.

    The sport bottle seems ideal for me. I have a home painting business and work in so many different homes. I often wonder if the water is safe to drink.

    As far as my home is concerned do you know of any quality testing kits to see how bad the tap water really is?

    • Thanks for visiting Sean. If you want to test your water yourself, then you can get a pool testing kit from Walmart and it will show you how much chlorine is in your water and what the pH is. Ideally, you don’t want any chlorine and the ideas pH is somewhere between 7.3 and 9.5. If you want to know more, like what kind of minerals are in your water or what contaminants might be there, you can go to your County Extension Office and get a water test done. I think you are in Coweta County (based on your IP address) and their website said they do a basic water test for $17 or an expanded test for $52. As long as you have a completely sterile and clean bottle for your sample then they should give you pretty accurate results.

      My wife and I filmed two short videos about the sport bottle earlier today that I hope to get put up on YouTube and my website this weekend. The bottle is pretty cool.

    I had replaced the rocks in my sponge type water filter, and now cannot rebuild it, could some one help me by sending explicit instructions, preferable with illustration, thanks, ‘Ms. fixit’……………….lol Rita

    • I’m glad I could help Rita, and thanks for the reminder to put the Aqua Pour setup video back up. It is now in the right-hand sidebar of the Aqua Pour page.

      • Dan Cullinan says:

        How do you properly clean the rocks? About twice a year a slight mold builds in the water holding tank, thus the need to clean all parts and set-up the system. We want to make sure that the rocks are cleaned before reusing.

        • From my experience this usually happens with the Aqua Pour is setup in direct sunlight. We had a similar problem and moved ours away from the window and that fixed the problem. It is also a good idea to clean it, especially the supply (bottom) tank regularly, like every 3 months or so. In your case I think that scrubbing them lightly with hot water and a toothbrush should take care of it, then make sure you get new rocks when you replace your filter.
