DIY Water Ionizer Food safe electrodes? Power requirements for water ionization?


Hi,
As of lately, I have been beginning to make a water ionizer much like that of Kangen or Tynet. Although this may bring about feelings of disgust and rage
in some people when thinking about sleazy salesmen and pyramid schemes it interests me a lot and I would like to see how small of a machine I can realistically make. The concept is essentially the same for all of them there is an acidic side and a basic side separated by a ion selective membrane. Drink your anti cancer juice on one end and do god knows what with the other end.

Existing machines use ~150 watts of power from what I've researched I would like to see if thats entirely necessary.

As far as my electrodes go I'm considering using aluminum foil for the first few b/c it's cheap.

So now i find myself here trying to see if anyone has any input as to:

What is most important when building the electrodes on a device like this surface area or material?

Is it possible use <100 watts to power a system like this?

If anyone has experience with ion selective membranes what are they usually made of? have you made your own? I want mine to be food safe obviously.

Thank you:D

These ionized water machines do not bring about disgust and rage because of sleazy salesmen or pyramid schemes.

They bring about disgust and rage because they are a scam to rip people off and have no medical value whatsoever.

However this is actually an advantage if you want to make your own because ANY wattage, ANY electrode material or configuration will be every bit as useless as the finest commercial water ionizer.

I would suggest using a single AAA battery as a power source (Or even just finding a stray cat and petting it vigorously. Rubbing a balloon on your head may work too!) and use the foil wrappers from 2 sticks of Wrigley's doublemint gum as electrodes.

I absolutely guarantee this configuration will cure cancer every bit as well as the finest water ionizer on the market.

Life lesson: There are no miracle cures. Sadly that doesn't prevent assholes from preying on the desperate and the gullible ones.

I think this is the only time I find my lack of faith disturbing. For surely there must be a very special place in hell where these assholes burn?

How about some sensible suggestions so he doesn't accidentally poison himself with toxic metals?

I appreciate your enthusiasm haha. that is about the level of disgust i figured i would receive here.

Okay so what your saying is this is really easy to do then? ;-)

I would be slow to say there is definitely NO use for these devices since its well established that you are able to control the pH of your stomach by what you ingest. If you agree that this is true, then I have every reason to think that it might be helpful to those with heartburn or indigestion problems. Sure, tums exist so do rantidine and omeprazole but if I could neutralize my acidic stomach with my tap water...thats what interests me. So if I can make pH 8-8.5 water using electrolysis on a small scale then I'm winning here.

Any non-asshole comments are welcome <3 even sensible suggestions like for example:

Just for for fun, how can I calculate the power requirements for this cell? Im assuming that the change in pH follows as a result of changes in concentration of dissolved species like H+ ca2+ na+ mg2+ po4^2- cl- OH- you know, the shit that makes hard water. can someone explain HOW i would calculate the requirements for something like this.

thanks

Okay, do this:
https://www.brighthubengineering.com/diy-electronics-devices...

But be aware that makers of water ionizers say making your own is a waste of time, it will be dangerous to use, and won't help you:
https://airwaterlife.com/diy-water-ionizer/

Not really too much of a shock since they're in business to make you buy their water ionizers so they can get your money; not to help you build your own.

EDIT In RE above: non- asshole comments? Then I certainly won't say that water ionization has any medical value because that's a real asshole comment.

And I won;'t try to justify making the stuff because I'm ignorant enough to think it cures cancer by pretending I'm doing it for some other reason once it's pointed out that it doesn't cure cancer..
That's also an asshole comment.

And I won't tell people that I believe the charlatans when they tell me their machine is a miracle medical cure but don't believe them when they warn me the machines are too complicated for me to make my own.

No, because asserting that sort of selective fantasy is a tremendous asshole comment.

I also won't start calling people assholes because they've pointed out the utter inaccuracy of my pseudoscientific beliefs because any such comments would be real asshole comments.

i would not advice using aluminium as electrode because of aluminium being toxic
and theres a whole scientific community waiting to disagree with me on this, i remember long ago that aluminium was classified as a heavy metal, and i remember clearly asking my chemistry teacher how that could be since aluminium has a low density

anyhow the easiest way to make water basic is using baking soda, or maybe calcium hydroxide, calcium hydroxide would be quite simple for you even, just make a saturated solution and dilute it down accordingly to whatever pH you fancy, ingesting baking soda has seen some hormonal increases also so i dont think this basic pH thing is completely crooked shot, overrated? likely.




~25 drops = 1mL @dH2O viscocity - STP
Truth is ever growing - but without context theres barely any such.

It seems to me that the human body frequently responds to changes in environment by adjusting internal processes to move the system back towards a 'nominal' equilibrium,
no doubt related to Chatelier's principle.
So if you consume alkaline water, your body will produce more acid ... etc.

Aluminium hydroxide has been used for years in antacid tablets and in cooking utensils, though I don't recommend ingesting anything made from electrolizing random pieces of aluminium or any other metal.




i am wg48 but not on my usual pc hence the temp handle.

Thank goodness for Fleming and the fungi.
