How The Enagic Kangen Water Machine System Works – What You Need To Know Before You Buy (Updated 2024)

The Kangen Water machine is a water ionizer. The water passes over charged plates that are separated by an ion-permeable membrane. The electrostatic charge on the machine’s plates causes the minerals in tap water – calcium and magnesium – to be separated from the acidic carbonate that they are mixed within the water. Once free of the acidic carbonate, the minerals combine with an antioxidant hydroxyl ion taken from a water molecule which forms mineral hydrates. It is the mineral hydrates in Kangen Water that give it its alkalinity and antioxidant potential.

The strength and potency of alkaline water are measured in three ways:

  • Alkalinity – The ability of alkaline water to neutralize acid
  • ORP – Oxidation Reduction Potential – The antioxidant potential of alkaline water
  • pH – Potential Hydrogen – Amount of hydrogen in the water available for chemical reactions

The example shows 7 vertical plates, which is the number of platinum plates utilized by the Enagic flagship model, LeveLuk Sd501.

Water flows through a multi-electrode plate mechanism which ionizes and splits the water into alkaline and acidic waters. (Both alkaline and acidic water have unique and beneficial uses).

(For Strong Acidic & Strong Alkaline Water only) Water flows through an electrolysis enhancer to aid in the production of both strong acidic and highly alkaline water, which is not for drinking.

Solid Versus Mesh Plates

The Kangen Water(R) machines produce the highest quality ionized, alkaline water. Enagic’s patented, solid dipped, platinum plates are dipped in medical grade platinum (at over $1,500 per oz) and not sprayed like many of the cheap imitations.

Enagic is the only manufacturer that uses 7 solid medical-grade, platinum coated titanium electrolysis plates with 490 sq. in. surface area, and which uses 230 watts in order to provide enough power to perform a sufficient quantity of electrolysis with a reasonable flow rate.

Ionization quality is a function of how much electricity comes in contact with how much water, so these numbers are especially revealing. The Enagic LeveLuk SD501 produces “Kangen Water” with a consistent strong negative ORP characteristic.

Ionizing Plate Size With Largest Surface Area

The Kangen Water Machine ionizing plates have the largest surface area of any other machine on the market. They are four times larger than the plates of a leading competitor. The size of the plates is a key factor in the process of alkalizing or acidifying the water.

It is an irrefutable law of electricity, chemistry, and physics that the higher the electrical voltage a plate can sustain and the longer period of time water stays in contact with this voltage, the more complete the ionization process.

With more surface space and the highest quality of materials, Enagic sets the highest standard for producing ionized water.

Quality Of Construction In The Enagic Factory

Each Kangen Water Machine is assembled individually by one trained technician and goes through a 22-point inspection by 5 different inspectors.

Since Enagic is an OEM or Original Equipment Manufacturer, the company performs all the steps in the process, from stamping their own proprietary titanium plates, producing the electrode plates and all other parts, to the expert assembly of the electrolysis chambers, testing, inspection, and the final packaging—all with no outsourcing. This procedure guarantees a high-quality product that is built to last.

Reliable Warranty, Maintenance, And Life Expectancy Of The Kangen Water Machine

The Enagic LeveLuk SD501 comes with a 5-year FULL Warranty (and now an optional extended two-year warranty is also offered). Enagic’s warranty covers everything including all parts and labor in any condition, whereas some water ionizers have exclusions based on factors such as the kind of water you put in their machine.

Each removable filter from the ionizer machine is good for about 3000 gallons. The replacement costs, for the filter, is approximately $100. The built-in microprocessor indicates when the filter should be replaced.

Every few months, depending upon usage, the removable filter should be taken out and a cleaning cartridge placed inside the machine. This cleaning cartridge is used to clean the mineral deposits off the engine (the electrolysis plates.)

With the proper maintenance, the life expectancy of the Enagic Kangen Water Machine is approximately 15 years.


Enagic International is certified to ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and ISO 13485 for quality control and environmental management, the Water Quality Association Gold Seal for product certification, and a member in good standing of the prestigious Direct Selling Association.

The manufacturing plant is ISO 9001 & ISO 14001 certificated.

The Cost of Bottled Water

Next, to carbonated beverages, bottled water ranks second as America’s favorite drink. But is bottled water the right choice for your hydration? Is it even the right choice for your recession-friendly budget?

Obviously, bottled water is much healthier than sugary, caffeinated sodas, but is it really worth the cost? You may be surprised at what Americans actually spend on bottled water every year. Take a look at how Kangen Water® compares to the cost of staying hydrated with popular bottled water brands:

    Hello. I am interested in Kangen water.
    I would like to know if the Kangen Water Machine filter removes lead from the public drinking water.
    I would appreciate it if you would provide me with some research that verifies that the filter in the Kangen water machine removes lead.

    Thank you kindly,

    hi nate,

    I would like to need to know if the enagic water machine filters out water contaminants as well?

    • Nate Leung says:

      Hi, Sara!

      There are some options available.

      There is a pre-filter that they sell.

      There is a better solution that I have where I put it in front of the Enagic ionizer.

      If you want information on that, please click here to contact me.

    What if the water was filtered using a reverse osmosis filter before it passed through the Kangen machine? Would the electrolysis process still work?

    What if the water was filtered using reverse osmosis filter after it passed through the Kangen machine? Would the process still work?

    In other words, does the water passing through the Kangen Machine require minerals in order to work properly?

    Thank you.

    • Nate Leung says:

      Hi Jerome,

      The better setup is to have your water source go straight to the ionizer.

      Whenever water passes through an RO system, it strips it of minerals.
