The Borosilicate Glass Pitcher of Life has a 3.75 capacity and the holding tank (where the filtered,
alkalized water is held, holds 2.5 liters). I tested the prototype for 3 months before we went into production, and it worked fine. I always filled it up again after I poured several glasses of alkaline drinking water. We made some larger versions, but because it is the high quality Borosilicate Glass, the weight for my Wife was a little too much. We modified the final version, that we put into production, by making the glass handle larger, and adding a food-grade, stainless steel underside to the lid.
Alkaline water typically stays alkaline for a period of time, but the length of time can vary depending on various factors such as storage conditions and the initial pH level of the water. Generally, alkaline water that is properly stored in a sealed container will retain its pH level for several weeks to a few months, or longer. About a decade ago, I was in a partnership with Dr. Robert O Young, and we bottled alkaline water in a sealed blue glass bottle. We tested it over a year later, and it was still at 9.2 pH.
However, it is important to note that over time, the pH level of alkaline water may gradually decrease as the water absorbs carbon dioxide from the air, and this is especially true if it is in any type of plastic container.. Therefore, it is recommended to check the pH level of stored alkaline water before consuming it. Your best approach is to generate fresh alkaline water that has antioxidants. Your best approaches to this would be with a Pitcher of Life® alkaline water purifier pitcher. Or you can go with a Life Ionizer which will generate a higher pH and a higher negative Oxygen Reduction Potential (ORP).
Teflon is a brand name for a type of synthetic material called polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), which is used in a variety of products, including non-stick cookware, waterproof clothing, and industrial coatings. PTFE is generally considered to be non-toxic, and it is not known to cause any harmful effects when ingested in small amounts. While it is possible that trace amounts of PTFE might be present in drinking water, the levels are likely to be very low and would not pose a risk to human health.
Water molecules are composed of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom, and they are naturally polar, meaning that they have a positive charge on one end and a negative charge on the other. This polarity is what gives water its unique properties and allows it to dissolve a wide range of substances. Some companies claim to sell "polarized" water, often under the brand name Watt-Ahh, but these products are not backed by scientific research and are not likely to have any special health benefits.
Alkalosis is a condition in which the body has an excess of alkaline substances, which can cause the pH of the blood to rise above normal levels. This can have a number of negative health effects, including dizziness, muscle spasms, and confusion. While drinking alkaline water can increase the pH of the water in your stomach, it is not likely to cause alkalosis because the stomach is highly acidic and will neutralize the alkaline water before it can be absorbed into the bloodstream. Additionally, the kidneys and other systems in the body are able to regulate the pH of the blood and prevent alkalosis from occurring.
Alkaline water is water that has a higher pH level than regular tap water. The pH level is a measure of how acidic or alkaline a substance is, with a pH of 7 being neutral, a pH less than 7 being acidic, and a pH greater than 7 being alkaline. Alkaline water typically has a pH of 8 or 9, which makes it slightly alkaline. It is often marketed as being healthier than regular water because it can neutralize acid in the body and help balance the body's pH levels. Some people believe that drinking alkaline water can have a range of health benefits, including improving digestion, boosting the immune system, and increasing energy levels. However, there is no scientific evidence to support these claims.
Water from a reverse osmosis system is purified but very unhealthy because it lacks all minerals it will pull minerals from the body causing a loss in bone density. To alkalize water you need minerals to be in the water your Pitcher of Life processes. My suggestion would be to add a POST coral calcium cartridge which will put 73 minerals back into the water and then use that water inside your Pitcher of Life More on the filter here:
You will initially need a housing for this cartridge
PS send me your address and I can send you a full EPA Mandated water report
You can drink the water the next day, but the fresher it is, the healthier it is. That instruction is focused on the quality of the water, meaning the alkaline antioxidant level will be higher, the fresher the water is.
A TDS level of 50-150 is considered safe, purified for drinking. If you have your TDS below 50 TDS, this means your drinking water is missing essential healthy alkaline minerals such as Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, and Sodium. This means that your LOW TDS drinking when consumed, will then draw these minerals out of your bones and cells, to balance the body. This causes a lowered bone density, which is very detrimental to your long-term health. This is why Pitcher of Life the drinking water filtration system has been designed to keep the TDS between 50 and 150 TDS. If we wanted to make the TDS lower or higher than this, we could easily to it BUT the best healthy levels of TDS are the ones that we design our Pitcher of Life filter system around, so that we provide you the HIGHEST QUALITY PRODUCT. We stand with our High Quality Pitcher of Life System with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee and a LIFETIME WARRANTY
Hard water is water that has a high mineral content, typically containing high levels of calcium and magnesium. These minerals can cause a variety of issues, such as the formation of scale in pipes and appliances, and the decreased effectiveness of soaps and detergents. To remove the minerals that cause scale from water that is entering your home's water system, use the filter:
- Supporting the immune system: High -ORP water may help to neutralize free radicals in the body, which can damage cells and lead to various health problems.
- Improving hydration: Alkaline water with a high ORP may be more easily absorbed by the body, leading to improved hydration and better overall health.
- Alkalizing the body: Alkaline water with a high negative ORP helps to balance the body's pH levels, which helps to reduce inflammation and improve overall health.
