Athena is one of the very best makers of water ionisers in the world, with its advanced system coming out top in an EPA certified independent US laboratory test.
With cleaner water produced from dual filtration, the Jupiter Athena uses the market leading Biostone Filtration System which boasts unbeatable durability. There’s also the DARC Cleaning System (patented) plus a variety of installation choices including direct pressure, under sink or counter top.
The Jupiter Athena was shown to be the top performing ioniser in tests performed by an EPA certified US laboratory, with no other returning better results. With its elegant styling, durability and innovative features the Athena represents real value for money. An Athena purchase also means an investment into Emco Tech, one of the global leaders in ionization technology, providing not just excellence of design but longevity, experience and reliability. For countertop ionisation systems, there’s no better than the Athena for features, durability, technology or all-round performance.
You may see certain companies claiming extraordinarily high ORP numbers or high voltages but don’t be fooled by this. These numbers are actually immaterial if there’s a high pH level; it’s only alkaline water at around pH 8.5-9.5 combined with a desirable ORP which provides any benefits. In addition, a pH level of more than 10 typically produces unpleasant tasting water for most people; this is caused by the high levels of minerals which provide a bitter flavour. When you’re looking for an ioniser, the most important factors to focus on are durability, efficiency and performance. The Athena can still produce high negative ORP results at higher pH levels if that’s what you want, but its best utilised to deliver decent ORP figures at a more beneficial pH range. And that’s the type of water you’ll really want to drink. The Athena is a counter top ioniser which really gives you much more for your money.
The Biostone Filtration System combined with pre-filtering result in water which is 99.9% free of contaminants; out of all the Jupiter Science ionisers, this combination can only be found on the Athena.
On the Athena, the Biostone Filtration System comes with .1 micron filter as standard but also offers a .01 micron product upgrade which has the additional benefits of filtering all bacterial and viral contaminants too. This filter upgrade is particularly recommended for wells and other untreated sources of water. Whichever option you pick, the water will be filtered to an exceptional level which will produce pure results which won’t prevent the desirable natural minerals from remaining; this creates not just ionised water, but water which is healthy too.
The Jupiter Science Mesh Diode Electrode technology is a new and patented design which is how the Athena is still such a compact size, despite the features. Some manufacturers may claim that offering a bigger plate size is the only route to effective ionization; this simply isn’t true.
A lot of thought will inevitably go into the purchase of your ioniser so the Athena has been made to be durable and cost-effective. Keeping the electrodes clean is a vital part of this; they are a critical component and is allowed to clog up will impact on the lifespan of your machine. Many other ionisers use a process known as reverse polarity to keep the electrodes clean, but this not only decreases their efficiency, it also results in build-up of scale. In addition the unit cannot be used during the cleaning process making it extremely inconvenient.
The Athena is completely different, using the patented DARC system, offering far superior results. Double Automatic Reverse Cleaning - DARC - gets rid of mineral scaling completely resulting in long-lasting efficiency and superior performance. In addition, DARC is a “clean as you use” technology which means there’s no down time and your ioniser is always available for use.
A valve controls the flow on your Athena means that you can control the performance of the ionisation to your own exact requirements, giving you absolute control on the management of the water pressure functions. This superior flow control option also means that you can choose between various installation types:
Some of the highlights of the Athena include:
As well as the main features there are a number of elements which are designed to provide a degree of protection for the unit. These include:
Some of the features you’ll find on the Athena have been created specifically for a more user-friendly experience:
