ENTECH, division of Agri-Service Lab Inc. 6820 Kitimat Rd., Unit #4 Mississauga, ONT L5N 5M3 Phone: (905) 821-1112

Sample Type: Water Date Received: Nov 02, 2005, Date Analysed: Nov 02-09, 2005, Date Reported: Nov 10, 2005

Entech, an independent water testing lab, has tested two separate Jupiter Melody water ionizers using both "before" and "after" water quality samples. In this test, an ionization cell, combined with the biostone carbon filter media, is shown to effectively reduce the presence of both lead and arsenic, two toxins previously thought to be unaffected by water ionizers. This test also shows a reduction of sodium.

Filtering Common Contaminants Found in Drinking water

In this test, a specially concocted "brew" containing excessive quantities of every commonly detected dangerous chemical found in drinking water was passed through a Jupiter water ionizer. The results show that contaminants were reduced in most cases to levels undetectable by the performing labs.
