Buy Nikken Waterfall

Why do you need a water filter, especially something like the Nikken PiMag Waterfall? You already know how important it is to drink water. There are a lot of questions about how much water you need to drink each day, but you know that it is important to at least drink some.

You also know that you want to drink clean water, water that isn’t contaminated with a bunch of chemicals and other trash. Unless you’re water comes from a well you can safely assume that you are drinking contaminated water. Smell it. Your nose will tell you. Water shouldn’t smell much, and it definitely shouldn’t smell bad. If it does, there is something in your water that you probably don’t want.

If you are like a lot of people, you probably get your water from a municipal water supply. All of the ones that I know of get their water from surface water, water collected in reservoirs or lakes well downstream from their sources. I used to live in the Atlanta area and most of the water there comes from a man-made lake, Lake Lanier, that is fed from three rivers that come down out of the mountains.

Surface Water Isn’t Clean

Mountain water sounds nice and clean, right? But it isn’t mountain water anymore. There are a lot of factory corn fields, chicken farms and food processing plants between the water’s source in the mountains and where the city’s water systems pull their water from the lake. That’s a lot of chemical runoff collected in those rivers that gets carried into the lake. Then there is a lot of recreational boat traffic dropping fuel in the lake too.

The cities in the Atlanta area all pick up their water from the lake and transport it through miles of pipes, add chlorine and other chemicals to it, them put it into more pipes to get it to their customers’ homes. I hate to say it, but that water is just nasty. I couldn’t drink the water from the tap. It smelled terrible and tasted worse. That why I have a Nikken Watefall water filter.

How is the PiMag Waterfall Better Than Other Water Filters?

Alkaline water from the Nikken Waterfall can help to counteract some of the damage done from a diet that is too acidic.

The body maintains an internal environment between 7.3 pH and 7.5 pH. A high acid diet (meat, carbonated soft drinks, processed foods) forces the body to tap into other resources (calcium from bones) to manage the acidic load. Replacing what you drink with alkaline water can make that job a lot easier for the body.

Ionized water, or water with a lower oxidation reduction potential (ORP) can help to reduce, possibly reverse, some of the effects of oxidation in your body. In short, ionized water is more like an antioxidant and less like a free radical.

Benefits of a Nikken Gravity Water System

There are huge benefits to having a Nikken gravity water system. Your water pressure no longer matters. Some houses have water pressure that is too high or too low for a water filter to work well. Fill up a pitcher at your sink and pour the water in the top of your PiMag Waterfall water filter and you are done. Gravity does the rest.

A good gravity water filter doesn’t require electricity. As long as the water filter has recently been filled, you will have clean water even when the power goes out.

The Nikken gravity water system is portable and doesn’t have to be near a sink. Do you have a business and want water available for your customers? Are you having a party, maybe a birthday party for a child, and don’t want a lot of people tromping through your house and kitchen? Do you travel in an RV and need something portable so that you can have clean water at home and while you travel?

A Nikken Waterfall gravity water filter can fill all those needs. It isn’t attached to a water supply, so it doesn’t need to be near a sink. When that need for a nearby water supply is gone, a gravity water filter can go anywhere.

The only other things I hear people ask about are hot and cold water. Cold water is easy. Fill a glass jug or bottle with water from the gravity water filter and store it in your refrigerator.

Hot water takes a little extra. We use a Sunbeam Hotshot from It heats up a cup of water at a time and is perfect for tea or hot cocoa.

What Nikken has to say about the Nikken Waterfall

You can enjoy clean, filtered and enhanced drinking water for a fraction of what bottled water costs. And you’ll be saving more than money — at the same time you’re helping to protect the environment.

The PiMag Waterfall is certified to meet contaminant-reduction specifications of ANSI/NSF Standards 42 and 53 in reducing compounds including aesthetic chlorine, chloramine, mercury and volatile organic compounds. This level of performance is superior to filtration in other water systems that cost ten times the price, require electrical power and produce wastewater. The PiMag Waterfall adjusts water pH to help balance against a typical modern diet and lifestyle that can lead to excess acidity. Ionizing technology saturates water with electron-rich ions to neutralize free radicals, while pi ceramics and Nikken magnetic technology complete the process. And as alternative to commercially bottled water, the PiMag Waterfall helps reduce the number of discarded, disposable bottles that become trash in landfills.

    What elements are reduced or eliminated with the original pimag and the new waterfall..?

    • Wayne says:

      Hi Yvonne. By “original pimag” I assume that you mean the Aqua Pour. It pretty much only removed chlorine and the other chemicals associated with chlorination. Some cities switched from chlorine to chloramine, which the Aqua Pour did not remove well. That was one of the motivations to develop the Waterfall. The Waterfall has been tested to meet or exceed ANSI/NSF Standard 42 (particulates, chlorine, chloramine, odor and taste) and ANSI/NSF Standard 53 for cysts and lead.

  2. Michael Stephens says:

    I have a PiMag water fall and like the taste of the water
    Only thing that could make this PiMag better would be an auto water fill system to
    keep the water reservoir filled

  3. Barb says:

    I have well water and would like to know if the waterfall is a suitable filtration system?
    Also, I would like additional information on the mineral rocks.

    • Wayne says:

      Hi Barb. I have well water too and use the Waterfall to filter it for drinking and cooking. The mineral rocks are manufactured rocks with just a trace amount of minerals to help the filtered water stay alkaline while sitting in the bottom tank.

  4. Carmalene says:

    Hello, I have an ro system and are wondering if I could use the the Pimag to remineralize the water out of our system? Or if you have any other products that would remineralize our water that first goes through an whole house charcoal filter and then RO in the kitchen.

  5. Serge says:

    I need full specs for this water system and what is the difference between the US/canada system and similar system sold in Colombia for instance? Also, I need pimag optimizer, why here it is not available?

    • Hi Serge. The biggest difference between the new Nikken PiMag Waterfall and the discontinued Aqua Pour is in the quality of the water filtration. The PiMag Waterfall cleans the water much more thoroughly and adjusts the alkalinity to between 8.5 and 9.5 pH. The Aqua Pour couldn’t come close to that. The Waterfall is also smaller so that more people can make room for it on their counter tops. You can find the full specs right here in the manual.
      The Optimizer II was discontinued 2 years ago so your best chance for finding one now would be on Craigslist or Ebay.

      • Serge says:

        Thanks Wayne, if it is discontinued, where to to get spare parts? Also, why in many countries still sale it (both systems)? Also, can you advise about your Calgary rep I wanna get this new system.Thanks

        • Serge, the replacement filter components for the Aqua Pour are still available here and should continue to be available for at least another 4 years.
          The PiMag Waterfall was first introduced in the US then as demand levels out and any government approvals are obtained it was expanded to other countries. Remaining stock of old products, like the Aqua Pour, continue to be available until they are sold out. The Aqua Pour was still available for the first 2 months or so that the Waterfall was available. Discontinued products tend to sell out faster in the US and Canada than other countries because they are so much larger than other countries. In the case of the Aqua Pour here, Nikken reduced the price by $100 or so and they sold fast.
          I don’t currently have any teammates in Calgary. Even if I did it would still ship to you directly from Nikken, so the easiest thing to do is order it online by clicking the picture above on this page. All products in the US ship from Nikken HQ in Irvine, CA. Everything in Canada ships from their warehouse in Mississauga, ON.

    What happened with the pimag water system? I can see it in Australia, Latin America but not in the US.

    • Hi Juan. The Nikken gravity water system that you have in Latin America is what we called the PiMag Aqua Pour. That was discontinued for the US and Canada last Fall and replaced with the PiMag Waterfall that you see on this page. The Aqua Pour replacement filters are still available and should be for 4 more years or so.
