With all Ionizers
Vesta GL 9-Plate
All backed by the dependability and certainty of Emco Tech - the world leader in ionization since 1982.
You want two things from an ionizer: clean and healthy water. To understand the techno-logical advancements you'll find in the Athena, which create its outstanding performance. Other considerations in performance are durability, or how long the unit will perform, and functionality.
Research states that the ideal level for drinking alkaline water is between pH8.5 - pH9.5 with an ORP of -250mv. It is unimportant if an ionizer creates big -ORP numbers at really high levels of pH. For most people, water over a pH10 begins to acquire an unpleasant taste due to the heavy concentration of minerals. What is important is drinking water at the mildly alkaline levels of pH8.5 - pH9.5 with good -ORP. Of course the Athena will create the big - ORP numbers at the higher pH ranges, but it is designed to give you the best ORP at the lower levels of pH - the levels that you will actually enjoy drinking. That's where the bang for your buck really is.
The Athena is the top performing unit on the market in truly independent, third party certified US EPA analytical lab testing. To see the certified lab test results click here.

The Athena is the only Emco Tech ionizer that offers on-board dual filtration capability. It cleans your water to be 99.9% contaminant free, if using potable water source. The Athena incorporates a pre-filter and the revolutionary Biostone Filtration System. The Athena comes standard with a .1 micron Biostone filter, and is available in a .01 micron upgrade which filters all viral and bacterial contaminants. The upgrade is recommended for those on untreated water sources such as wells. Both filter options clean the water extremely well - yet allow the naturally occurring mineral content to pass through, which is essential for the ionizing process. You get clean and healthy water!
The new patented Emco Tech Mesh Diode Electrode technology allows for its compact size. Do not be fooled by those manufacturers who claim that a large plate size is the key to ionization. It generally indicates less advanced and sophisticated technology.

An ionizer is an investment. You will want your investment to last. The electrodes are the crucial component in your ionizer. All other units on the market clean by a simple reverse polarity - which still allows some scale buildup. The Athena offers the patented new DARC (Double Automatic Reverse Cleaning) system.
This new system will completely eliminate the mineral scaling from on the electrodes ensuring you will have many long years of healthy water. With other ionizers, you have to wait during a reverse polarity cleanse to use the ionizer. The DARC system cleans as you ionize - so you never have to wait for a cleaning cycle to complete.
You will also want your ionizer company to be around to take care of your needs many years after you make the purchase. This point cannot be emphasized enough; in the last three years alone approximately 8 manufacturers have come and gone in the market place. With IonWays and Emco Tech you buy with absolute certainty that your company will be around to support you - long after some of the other companies have left you high and dry. Their combined 25+ years of experience and track record is unmatched. Period.
MORE INSTALLATION OPTIONS AND FUNCTIONALITY
The Athena offers a flow control valve that allows you to fine tune the performance and gives you true functional control of the water pressure through your ionizer. There are no gimmicks or additional circuitry, just the time tested advantages of true flow control. The flow control also provides for the possibility of alternate installation options. The Athena is one of the only ionizers that can be installed three different ways:
