I understand that price is the #1 consideration when looking at the alkaline water options.
This guide will give you the lowdown on the different options to get alkaline water into your life in the most cost effective way possible.
I’ve also created a comparison of the different alkaline water methods and given pro’s and con’s so be sure to read that guide too.
Cost-Effective Alkaline Water
Alkaline Water Ionizers
I am going to start with water ionizers because not only do I believe they are by FAR the best way to get alkaline water, but also because I think they can be cost effective too. I understand that there is an up front outlay, but we have worked very hard and have managed to arrange an interest free payment plan to try and make these ionizers as accessible and affordable as possible.
We are just days away from launching this payment plan and I will let you know once I know the exact details – but we are hoping to make it comparable to buying pH drops on a monthly basis.
Plus, with ionized water you also can figure in the following savings:
- Bottled Water: according to which.co.uk (the UK’s leading consumer advise service), bottled water costs around 31p per litre if bought in bulk – which at 4 litres per person, per day certainly adds up. This is £38 per person, per month. So presuming there are two of you in the household, on average, this is £76 per month on bottled water
- Cleaning Products: remember, acid water from a Chanson Ionizer at pH 3.5 or less is totally sterilizing and able to rapidly kill bacteria. Click here for the ionizer scientific proof and click here for more acid water uses – plus, click here for the story of the Sheraton using acid water to clean instead of toxic chemicals. Presuming you use, on average bathroom spray, kitchen surface spray, a bottle of bleach, oven cleaner, floor cleaner and glass cleaner and these last, on average 2 months – this will cost you approximately: £14.35 per month. PLUS – you will not have so many harmful chemicals in your life and around your kids. (Prices sourced from sainsburys.co.uk).
- Make Up & Skin Cleanser: acid water between pH 3.5 and 4.5 is also fantastic for the skin, as a toner and make up remover. This would equate to a saving of around £7 per month – plus you, again, won’t be bathing your face with chemicals.
I know this might still seem expensive to you – but I hope that our interest-free ionizer payment plan will help make it more affordable.
What you get: alkalised, ionized water that is pH 9.5, antioxidant rich (ORP of -450), microclusterd for better hydration and filtered to remove the toxins in tap water.
What you miss out on: nothing.
COST: about £40-£50 per month for unlimited use and production of acid and alkaline water (price TBC).
You can make alkalizing water simply by squeezing fresh lemon into it. While lemon in it’s natural state is acidic (citric acid of course), when it is metabolised it has an alkaline effect on the body. Click here for more of an explanation on how lemon water is alkalising.
So this is super cheap and alkaline BUT…
I would not recommend this being your only source of alkaline water. I personally only do this once per day, in the morning to get my body awoken, my metabolism working and my digestive system cleansing.
This does not make the high pH water your body needs. You should see lemon water as a cleansing, enjoyable drink rather than an alkaline water.
What you get: a cleansing drink that is tasty and very mildly alkalising to the system
What you miss out on: the high pH needed, the antioxidant content, the microclustering and the filtration
COST: about 10p per litre.
pH drops are fantastic on-the-go and do a great job of increasing the alkalinity of tap water and filtered water. I would personally use them with a filter too as tap water contains a lot of rubbish you don’t want to be drinking.
What you get: increased pH.
What you miss out on: the antioxidant content, the microclustering and the filtration
COST: about £30-£40 per month.
Portable Ionizer Jugs
I love these little units and took one all over Europe and the USA with me last year – happily filtering tap water wherever I went. They definitely do not even get close to replacing an actual ionizer, but they are handy for at the office, in the second home/holiday home or when travelling.
What you get: reasonable pH, reasonable filtration.
What you miss out on: the antioxidant content, the microclustering and the filtration.
COST: about £50 for the jug, plus replacement filter costs of around £30 per year.
I hope this helps! As you can see, there are varying costs – but if you are committed to paying around £30-50 per month on pH drops or other filtration methods then I strongly recommend you look into buying a Chanson ionizer from us on our interest free payment plan!
