Overall the Hydrent is going to be tough beat if you’re on a “5-plate water ionizer” budget. Good price, solid performance, nice features with a clean design.
What we like about the KYK G2 is the amount of machine you get for the money. This model offers users 4 alkaline, 4 acidic and one neutral preset for producing ionized water at a variety of pH levels.
If you’re looking for a good buy under $2,000 you can probably stop right here. The Alkalux has it all. 7 large plates, 185 watts of SMPS power, safety features, ease of use, better than average industry warranty. Definitely worth the price.
