Panasonic Japan makes many models of Water Filters and Ionizers and we focus only on the newest / highest models with the most features here. The models that run on electricity are all super energy-saving. Don't forget to order replacement filters which are listed under each model. Also click on the multiple icons at the bottom right of this page for more info on this category.

Tap water is only made potable after vigorous filtration at water treatment plants. Before it gets there, wastes from multiple sources add to its contamination. These include but are not limited to:

  • Acid rain - this is a major pollutant comprised of dissolved sulfur oxide and nitrogen oxide.
  • Agricultural drainage - imagine the amount of synthetic fertilizers & pesticides used!
  • Industrial drainage - another scary thought of what heavy metals and organic compounds this may harbor.
  • Human sewage - Nitrogen & phosphorus compounds, organic waste, E.coli are just a few things that come to mind.

    So what happens at water treatment plant in a nutshell? Well, organic waste breeds bacteria, so let's dump in chlorine and chloramine. Now the surplus of nutrients causes algae to grow rampant, so let's dump in copper suffate and other toxins as fungicide. On top of all these, rusty pipes leach out heavy metals and other yucky stuff, plus those new and hard-to-detect "nano" wastes, they got a soup of poison to treat there. You can live at the mercy of your local treatment plant, or you can improve your potable water quality with state-of-the-art residential water filtration system by Panasonic Japan.

    History of Alkaline Ionized Water in Japan
    :
    • As we know,  pH 0 ~ 7 = acidic  while  pH 7 ~ 14 = alkaline .
    • While human skin is slightly acidic at pH 5.8, our body is made up of weak alkaline water at pH 7.4.
    • Tap water around the world has pH ranging from pH 5.8 to 8.6 typically.
    • Unlike regular water filter, alkaline ionized water purifier has been certified as a medical device for consumer use in Japan.
    • The Japanese started studying alkaline ionized water around 1931, and they finally invented the first device in 1945. That's almost 70 years of consuming alkaline ionized water for health purpose. Such device has also been adopted by the Japan medical world for 40 years.
    • Successful development of electrolysis equipment for agricultural applications - 1954.
    • First ever alkaline water ionizer for medical applications - 1960. It got its first official approval in 1966.
    • First approved continuous (chronic) apparatus usage - 1979.
    • Water ionizer boom - 1992.
    • Scientifically-proven benefits of alkaline ionized water on gastrointestinal tract at the 25th General Assembly of the Japan Medical Congress - 1999. Same year marked the establishment of the ▷ Association of Alkaline Ionized Water Apparatus in Japan.
    • Facts & Fiction:
      • Alkaline ionized water has both high pH and negative ORP values (see below chart). While alkaline ionized water merely has high pH value, i.e., they're not the same thing.
      • Negative ORP = antioxidant. But does that equate to eating antioxidant food which is believed to have anti-cancer properties? The most potent (highest bioavailability) antioxidant benefits may only be consumed in whole food form, or in ▷ Vitamin C vapor form.
      • Alkaline Food (an unfortunately inaccurate terminology as it should be Alkalizing Food or Alkaline-forming Food - which means food (let it be acidic or alkaline per se) that creates an "alkaline environment" inside our body once it's consumed. E.g.: Most fruits are acidic, but they have negative PRAL (Potential Renal Acid Load) values, meaning that they're Alkalizing Food. Source: ▷ Alkaline Food Chart. It's very unfortunate that most water ionizer sellers mix up (or can't even tell between) the two. So is Alkaline Ionized Water an alkaline- or acid-forming liquid? We're researching this & will post our findings here.
    • Usage and Recommendations (always consult your doctor first before attempting):
      • Start drinking alkaline ionized water at low pH (8 ~ 8.5) and in small cups. This is especially crucial for children and elders. Gradually consume higher pH water once you body gets used to the initial value.
      • After 2 weeks or so at aforementioned low pH, you may try to consume higher pH water gradually at say, pH 9 ~ 9.5 - provided that your body handles it well.
      • It's recommended that you consume as much fresh alkaline ionized water as possible. Try to achieve 500mL ~ 1L daily if feasible.
    • Recommended usage for alkaline ionized water (click to go to external links in translated English):
    • Recommended usage for acidic & neutral ionized water:
      • Every water ionizer can also make acidic water. E.g. pH 5.5, which is close to our natural skin pH of 5.8, is good for rinsing our faces.
      • Strong acidic water, like pH 3.0, is good for washing and rinsing dirty dishes / utensils, as well as for descaling, of course.
      • Every water ionizer also purifies water, and neutral pH is good for mixing milk powder and for taking medications so as to avoid any possible alternation of the medicine's intended potency.
    • As you know by now, bottling your own water can save you huge money and of course, our planet too.

    Water Ionizer (w/ integrated Purifier):


  • Panasonic Water Ionizer TK-AS43 - To be used as a standalone alkaline water ionizer since that it has its own integrated water purifier. Newest stylish design with LCD display. 3 platinum-coated titanium electrodes, LCD display, 3-stage alkaline & 1-stage weak acidic effluent, output 2.0L/min. Made in Japan.

    NOTE: These are the ultimate best consumer use water filter products globally. Just look at the list of impurities that they filter out, the capacity and lifespan of the cartridges. Consult your doctor first before consuming alkaline water. No form of these filters are intended to purify water. Do not use where water is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after filtration. Any product listed above that uses 100V electricity must be used with 100 ↔ 120V transformers which are sold separately.
