Prepare ionized water by first filtering water using a reverse-osmosis system and by adding calcium glycerophosphate to make it alkaline and ionized. Materials needed are 1-gallon plastic water containers, stainless steel plates, platinum electrodes, two CPVC pipes, chamois, two CPVC spigots, epoxy glue, a reverse osmosis system, calcium glycerophosphate tablets and a battery charger.Know More
Filter tap water using either a Berkey or a reverse osmosis filtration system. This water is not ionized.
Fix stainless steel plates below the lids of two plastic containers, using bolts of ? inches by 1 ? inches with wing nuts on the top. These are terminals attached to the battery charger. Attach platinum electrodes to the steel plates. A CPVC pipe, 2 inches in diameter and 6 inches long, is fixed into two corresponding holes of the plastic tanks and glued externally to facilitate movement of hydrogen and hydroxyl ions into two different containers. Chamois is wrapped at the two ends of the pipe to filter water between the two tanks.
Fill both the containers with the filtered water, add one to four crushed tablets of calcium glycerophosphate per liter of water that has 130 milligrams of calcium and attach the entire unit to a battery charger. The chamois clamps are loosened after filling the tanks with water to allow water movement across the pipe. The process is continued until the pH reaches 8 to 9.5 and the oxidation-reduction potential of the water reaches -150 to -500 millivolts.
The alkaline earth metals are a group of elements on the periodic table that contain two electrons in their outermost energy levels and exhibit similar characteristics such as high reactivity. This group of elements consists of beryllium, magnesium, calcium, strontium, barium and radium.Full Answer >
Calcium and magnesium are the two most common alkaline earth metals. These are two of the six elements that are classified as alkaline earth metals and are found in the Earth's crust.Full Answer >
Lye, baking soda and ammonia are examples of common alkaline substances. The word alkaline describes a water-based solution with a pH above 7.0. Full Answer >
Pure water is neutral because the total electric charges of the atoms and ions that compose it are equal and opposite, so they cancel each other out. Water that isn't pure, such as drinking water, may contain other elements that can affect its acidity.Full Answer >
