pH and ORP Specifications

ORP stands for Oxidation Reduction Potential. ORP is the measure of the machines ability to create anti oxidant properties in the water. In general, the higher the negative number, the better. This is one of the major benefits of an alkaline water ionizer. The higher the pH the more alkaline the water is.
