What is the difference between the alkaline water and premium water ?

Both machines feature a pretreatment system with a 7-step process. The process begins with reverse osmosis to achieve ultra-pure water. For the Premium water option, a subtle hint of mineralization is added using coconut shell and a post-mineralization filter. On the other hand, the Alkaline water option undergoes a 7-step alkaline filtration process utilizing natural media. These distinct filtration methods ensure that both machines deliver water tailored to their respective qualities and characteristics


Premium Alkaline water

pH : 8.5-9.5 pH - ORP: - 600 Milivots - TDS Reading : 20-50 PPM
