Investing in the Athena gives you the very best in return: top performance and features, ease of use, durability and styling. You also invest in the certainty of Emco Tech, the world's leading manufacturer of ionization technology. When it comes to performance, technology, durability and features, the Athena represents the absolute zenith in countertop ionization.
- Dual Filtration for cleaner water - including the Biostone Filtration System
- Top Performance for the healthiest water - the latest Mesh Electrode technology
- Unparalleled durability - the patented DARC Cleaning System eliminates the scale buildup which deteriorates performance in all other ionizers
- Unrivalled functionality. You never have to wait for a cleaning cycle - never even think about cleaning! The Athena gives you three installation options, counter top, direct pressure or undersink. And the Athena is has the most beautiful styling available!
You want two things from an ionizer: clean and healthy water. To understand the techno-logical advancements you'll find in the Athena, which create its outstanding performance, you should read The basics of how an ionizer works. Other considerations in performance are durability, or how long the unit will perform, and functionality.
Research states that the ideal level for drinking alkaline water is between pH8.5 - pH9.5 with an ORP of -250mv. It is unimportant if an ionizer creates big -ORP numbers at really high levels of pH. For most people, water over a pH10 begins to acquire an unpleasant taste due to the heavy concentration of minerals. What is important is drinking water at the mildly alkaline levels of pH8.5 - pH9.5 with good -ORP. Of course the Athena will create the big - ORP numbers at the higher pH ranges, but it is designed to give you the best ORP at the lower levels of pH - the levels that you will actually enjoy drinking. That's where the bang for your buck really is.

The Athena is the only Emco Tech ionizer that offers on-board dual filtration capability. It cleans your water to be 99.9% contaminant free. The Athena incorporates a pre-filter and the revolutionaryBiostone Filtration System . The Athena comes standard with a .1 micron Biostone filter, and is available in a .01 micron upgrade which filters all viral and bacterial contaminants. The upgrade is recommended for those on untreated water sources such as wells. Both filter options clean the water extremely well - yet allow the naturally occurring mineral content to pass through, which is essential for the ionizing process. You get clean and healthy water!
The new patented Emco Tech Mesh Diode Electrode technology allows for its compact size. Do not be fooled by those manufacturers who claim that a large plate size is the key to ionization. It generally indicates less advanced and sophisticated technology. Click here to read about the Emco Tech Electrode Advantage in the Athena.
