What Everybody Ought to Know About Acid Water

Amazing Acid WaterWait, did he just say…….ACID water?!

Yep. Sure did. It’s amazing. And I’m not afraid to say it. It’s probably the biggest discovery I’ve made in the past few years and I use it all day, every day, it’s great!

I use it on my skin, to disinfect my kitchen and bathroom, as a moisturiser, to get rid of odours, to get rid of stains, to clean glass…it’s totally antibacterial, totally sterilizing and amazing for skin conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, candida and more.

Sound interesting? Let’s learn some more and find out how to get acid water into your life!

What Is Acid Water?

Acid water is made using a water ionizer. In fact, acid water is the exact by-product of making alkaline water in the ionzier.

Here’s how it works…

How Do Water Ionizers Work?

I want to keep this concise and straightforward. The overwhelming feedback that I get is that this is what you prefer – so here goes!

The alkaline water ionizer works by a fairly straightforward process:

Step 1: Water passes through the internal alkaline water filter:

So the water feeds from your tap directly into the ‘In’ tube on the back of the alkaline water ionizer. Once it is in there the water runs through the in-built alkaline water filter to remove as many of the impurities as possible (in case you’re wondering, these filters last about a year and cost about £40/$50 to replace each year).

Step 2: An alkaline water ionizer runs water over positive and negative electrodes in a process known as electrolysis:

From there, the water then passes over the ‘plates’ in the ionizer. This is the really clever part of the ionizer. The water, once entering this section has a very specific low voltage electric current passed through it, which causes the soluble minerals in it to be attracted to either a positive ‘pole’ or a negative ‘pole’ depending on their own valiancy, or electrical energy signature.

When this happens, the water separates into alkaline and acid streams. We drink the water from the alkaline water ionizer and we use the acid water externally, for skin, healing, plants and disinfecting.

Step 3: The electrodes ionize the water into negative ions and positive ions—creating acidic and alkaline water:

So this process (as seen in the diagram above) separates the water into H+ (acidic water) and OH- (alkaline water). This electrolysis is also responsible for giving you the huge antioxidant content in the alkaline water and for microclustering the water.

So to keep it simple

1. The water is filtered
2. The ionizer splits the water into two
3. Out of one tap comes the alkaline, ionized, microsclustered water and out of the other comes the acidic, oxidized water

And while I’ve written lots on alkaline water in the past, today we’re talking about ACID water

Ionized acid water is, like I mentioned above, incredible because it is perfect for your skin, but also scientifically proven to be totally anti-bacterial and strong enough to be able to kill ecoli and staph – so you can use it all over your house to clean, in place of expensive and chemical-laden cleaners.

There are five things that make acid water so good at what it does:

1. Low pH from 2-4
2. High ORP from +800 to +1200
3. Micro clustered
4. Hypochlorous acid component from 1-30 mg/l
5. Heavy in H+ ions which act as an oxidizer

You don’t need to know what all of these things mean, you just need to know that this is why acid water from your Chanson Ionizer does the job!

Save Thousands of £ / $ Every Year!

This is one of the best things about getting an ionizer and making acid water. When you buy a Chanson Ionizer on an you almost make all of the cost of the unit back through cost savings from the ionized acid water within the first year!

This is especially true when you add in the benefits of the ALKALINE water too.

Lets look at what you would have to spend on a monthly basis to get even a fraction of this benefit:

  • 3 litres of bottled water per day: £41 per month (Tesco own brand)
  • pH Drops: £31.99 per month (Dr Young PuripHy)
  • Kitchen cleaner, floor cleaner, oven cleaner, toilet cleaner, mouthwash, window cleaner, shower cleaner: £11 per month (Tesco own brand)
  • Skincare products: £11 per month (Boots own brand)

—–> Plus, when you consider that the super-strong alkaline water completely removes pesticides and chemicals from fruits and vegetables, you can actually save money on some organic foods too when necessary.

Skin Benefits of Acid Water

Ionized acidic water is great for the skin because the skin is naturally an acidic organ (this slight acidity of 5.5 pH helps our body fight off bacteria).

People who regularly use acidic water to wash their bodies tend to have more youthful and vibrant looking complexion than those who use neutral hard water which disrupts the natural pH balance.

In truth there are hundreds and hundreds of uses around the house and on your skin, with your pets, on the go and we would never be able to list them ALL, but here are the top benefits as highlighted by Chanson themselves.

    Doesn’t it kill the good bacteria too? Maybe that’s why the guy below got warts on his face.

      Hey Susie

      Nobody is suggesting drinking it.

  2. Priscilla Deatrick Reply

    Is 2.5 water good for the skin to treat acne ?Does it help aging skin?

  3. KalQ Reply

    how long does the acid water properties remain effective? does the acid water properties fade away in time like how the alkaline water properties from an ionizer do over a few days?

  4. Amy Reply

    Is there any purpose to drink it?
    Also how do I put on my skin to help with fine lines?

    • KalQ Reply

      @Amy: You don’t drink it… drinking acid water will kill the bacteria in your gut (good and bad)… enough of it on a consistent basis is not helpful

    I have 0 DCIS breast cancer in my left six o’clock breast duct. Since l have been using alkaline water the size went from 2.7 cm to 2.6 cm. I have not had any conventional treatment at this point nor do l want too. My overall general chemistry is good for a fit 49 year old women. I get check ever three months. It’s been 20 months now. You seem to have great knowledge on waters and the benefits. I bought a ionizer water machine and it has both systems you talked about. Do you have any more healthy helpful tips l could do? Thank you for your awesome knowledge.

      My husband drank akaline water while going through Chemo, he needed stem cell and life expectancy was unknown with no cure for his cancer only maintainable with chemo medication regiment but we refused anything else that would cause more harm to his body , so lots and lots of lemongrass stalk tea, the leaves that usually get discarded, we boil pots and pots after cleaning it and into a tea, hot of cold it doesn’t matter he drank it all day for a month or two, and 5 years later, the cancer cells are so low it’s almost not detectable.

    @dkweamer –

    I’ve used acid water before (2.5ph) and never had a negative outcome – I’ve only used it on my face.
    How did you source your water? I’m sorry that happened to you….what did you practitioner say?

  7. DK Weamer Reply

    I just read your report on your website about acid water. I can not believe that you are recommending this to people to clean or treat their face.. This was recommended to me by a practitioner and I used it for 3 or 4 months that was at least 5 or 6 yrs ago and it was a disaster that caused irreversible damage that has never gone away.. Small bumps popped up on my face like little warts but they were not warts. Though these bumps shrank after I stopped using the acid water they have never gone away. No matter what natural healing skin products I have used on my face they have not gone away and I do not believe they ever will. Maybe this only happens to some people that use acid water but some people is tooo many. You should not encourage anyone to ever use .acid water on their face. dkw

      I guess it would depend on the source of the acidic solution. Acidic water produced by a water ionizer may be different to what a practitioner would prescribe?
