What We Don’t Like
The perfect blend of compactness, efficiency, and user-friendliness make this ionizer a reliable water processing unit for everyday home use.
If you’re looking for a powerful, easy to use, and low-maintenance water ionizer that will meet your daily healthy water needs, then the Aqua-Ionizer Pro AWL-7000 is a wise pick.
It is compact and doesn’t take up a lot of your valuable counter space. The ionizer has 7 water options that are evenly spread across alkalinity and acidity. And a high-performance filter offers efficiency while lowering maintenance demands.
Aqua-Ionizer Pro AWL-7000 Review
Efficiency: Heavy-Duty Plates and High-Performance Filter
The AWL-7000’s growing popularity is partly attributed to the ionizer’s ability to churn pack so much efficiency in a compact and pocket-friendly unit.
A key efficiency-boosting feature of this ionizer is its 7 platinum-coated titanium plates, which are built on cutting-edge 7-electroplate technology. Besides extending durability, these plates also boost energy efficiency, saving you money.
It is capable of producing both acidic and alkaline water, with a pH ranging between 4.0 and 11.0 alkaline. Also, it maximizes the antioxidant potential of water through its decent oxidation-reduction potential (ORP) of -800 to +1000.
In the filtration department, the AWL-7000 implements a high-performance activated carbon filter, which is rated for purifying over 1,585 gallons (6000 liters) of water, or up to a year of use.
You’ll be pleased with the ionizer’s button-less start function. It automatically starts itself when water pressure is detected, typically after you turn on the faucet. To switch the ionizer off, close the faucet tap.
Although the single-stage filtration system is sufficient for all your healthy water processing needs, a second-stage filter can also enhance the process even more.
Installation: Simple and Fast, with all Components Included
Even before we get to installation, its worth recognizing that the AWL-7000 is compact for a counter unit, which means that it would bite too much into your precious counter space.
Measuring only 13 x 8.3 x 4.3 inches in size, this ionizer is significantly smaller than many other models in its class.
When it comes to the actual installation, you will find the process surprisingly straightforward, easy, and fast. This is especially because all the components you need for installation are included with the unit.
Its water inlet line is built to work with all standard faucets thanks to a diverter hardware set that also serves as a universal adapter so that you won’t need to make any faucet head modifications.
Even though this ionizer is built for countertop use, you can mount the unit on a wall thanks to the manufacturer’s inclusion of wall mounting equipment.
You can also check out a detailed step-by-step video installation guide prepared by AirWaterLife as part of the AWL-7000’s review. As you’ll discover, the process is easy and the unit is not very invasive of your counter space.
Ease of Use: An Intuitive LCD and Dedicated Function Buttons
To fully maximize the features offered by the AWL-7000, the ionizer comes fitted with a backlit, bright, and simplified LCD panel that displays all the machine’s functions intuitively.
For every function, the LCD displays the relevant information so that you get the exact water quality you selected.
Speaking of function, there are 7 of these already preset for you. There is 1 dedicated touch button for the 4 different alkalinity levels, and 1 similar button for the 2 acidity levels offered by the ionizer.
And when you just need simply purified water, there’s a dedicated button for that. You won’t need to fumble with any settings or controls.
An interesting feature that may not be very obvious when you start using the AWL-7000 is its memory function. When you switch the ionizer off, it retains that setting and when you switch it back on, it will resume the function you were using last.
This feature is especially handy if you have a preferred function that you use often, such as “Daily Drinking”, for instance. You don’t have to engage it every time you power the unit on.
Durability: Heavy-duty Components with Low Maintainability
There’s no doubt about the durability of this ionizer and its components, especially those that come into direct contact with water.
Your ionizer comes fitted with 7 multi-layer titanium plates that are platinum-coated, for enhanced durability, even with exposure to different chemical elements present in water.
The carbon activated filter that comes with the AWL-7000 is rated for 1 year of use before needing replacement. You likely won’t be spending money on filters for a while.
An optimized cleaning cycle also contributes significantly to boosting the ionizer’s durability. After every use, the unit will clean itself automatically by reversing the plate’s polarity. This process lasts for 10 seconds.
Also, every time the unit starts or stops, it engages a brief automatic cleaning, just to ensure that it is contaminant-free before the next water contact.
Then, after 1 year, it is recommended that you manually clean the ionizer using a cleaning agent in the form of a descaling solution, which has also been included with the unit.
Overall, all these cleaning features and safeguards combine to ensure the ionizer is free of harsh elements and agents that could affect its durability.
Price: A Good Bargain for the Value
Even though the AWL-7000 is not a low-cost ionizer, its price is pocket-friendly when viewed from a value perspective, especially given how costly these appliances can get.
You’re getting a high-quality ionizer whose components are built to last even with everyday usage. The 7 platinum-coated titration plates guarantee not just the ionizer’s longevity, but also energy-efficiency.
Then there’re the user-friendly controls that simplify operation such that you can have your water ready within seconds of turning on the ionizer.
The dedicated buttons are a joy to use, and even when you turn off the appliance, it retains the previous settings so that you can resume from where you left off.
And we can’t forget the self-cleaning feature that ensures your ionizer is contaminant-free before and after use, for optimal outcomes and to extend durability.
A model that competes well with this ionizer is the Aqua-Ionizer Pro AWL-7500C. It closely resembles the AWL-7000 in both appearance and features.
It does, however, offer some enhanced functionalities such as filter replacement alert, a lighter build, and a more stylish finish compared to the AWL-7000. For these subtle enhancements, the price of the AWL-7500C is very high and not pocket-friendly.
Since both models have near-similar offerings for the features that matter, then you’ll be getting the most value for your money by choosing the AWL-7000.
A compact, efficient, and easy to use ionizer ideal for everyday healthy water creation at home, for all levels of users.
The Aqua-Ionizer Pro AWL-7000’s compactness and ease of use make the ionizer a reliable home water processing unit that keeps running costs at the minimum thanks to an efficient filter and heavy-duty platinum plates.
