If you’re new to the world of ionized water, then you’d be more surprised to hear that there are many different types as well. As you might have guessed, this segment is geared towards introducing types of ionized water and highlighting what makes them different.

Let’s get started!

Ionized alkaline water

Ionized alkaline water is arguably one of the most famous types there is. The process to make them is one that can be virtually automated, and is often used by enthusiasts and advocates.

In this type, the water is run through a faucet that uses the process of electrolysis to split the water into two components: acidic and alkaline.

Furthermore, the faucet only ejects the alkaline water for consumption and disposes off of the acidic part.

Distilled alkaline water

Tap water that undergoes distillation is what comprises of this type. Generally speaking, any pollutant, chemical, or bacteria in the water can make it acidic.

Their effective removal, or the water’s distillation, raises the alkalinity of the water and results in water that is high in its pH rating, or is almost neutral in some cases.

Generally, this type of water is also used for laboratory experiments since there is a minimal amount of minerals or chemical constituents found.

Purified water

This is arguably the most common type of alkaline water there is. Generally available in stores, purified water is known for its neutral pH of 7, or almost 7.

The reason it’s called alkaline or falls in the category is that it can be safely consumed as it is arguably lower than the threshold that deemed safe for consumption.

Purified water is best for infant formulas and medications since it is least likely to react with any substance due to its neutrality.

Alkaline additives

Alkaline additives are substances that you can add to normal water to raise their pH and create alkaline water.

These ingredients include, but aren’t limited to, pH raisers, lemons, and baking soda.

The process to make them is a little meticulous but is arguably the cheapest process there is from which you can reap all the benefits!

Mid alkaline water

Mid alkaline water is that which has a pH of about 9. Normally, this is not recommended for beginners.

If you’ve been experimenting with slightly alkaline water for a while, then this is the next logical step for you. Once you get the hang of it, you can move on to water that has a higher alkaline content.

However, it’s a good idea to stick to this level if you have chronic kidney illness or are on similar medications.

Low alkaline water

Low alkaline water is for individuals who are new to the concept or children under three years of age. In this, the range is somewhat between 7 and 9, but mostly sticking to the lower side.

When transitioning from normal water to alkaline water, this is the first step to take.

Experiment with it for two weeks before making the leap to mid alkaline water.

Standard alkaline water

Standard alkaline water is the pinnacle of things when it comes to water types.

At a pH of 9.5, this is virtually as high as it gets. Other than consumption, standard alkaline water is also used for cleaning fruits and vegetables since the pH ensures that no toxins or bacteria stay on the surface of the food.

Once you’ve built the stomach for medium alkaline water, standard alkaline water is what you need to transition to. At this stage, you’ll reap the most benefits of the whole thing.


Now that you’ve seen all the different types there are, it’s time to settle on one. Let us know what type you’re going to get into in the comment section below!

Buried in his toolshed, pulling an appliance or two apart, is where you’re likely to find Oscar on most days. Ever since his brother introduced him to the world of tinkering and repairing, Oscar has been obsessed with his craft and especially loves taking appliances around the house apart and then putting them back together. He’s definitely the quirkiest among the team, and loves explaining in detail how one appliance is different from the other and how each of them works (after having taken them apart and satisfied his curiosity of course).
