PiMag® Water Technology
Nikken PiMag® Water Technology combines multiple-stage filtration with pi minerals and a magnetic field. The arrangement of these systems varies according to the requirements of the individual product. However, all products with this technology produce the same result, filtered PiMag® water.
PiMag® Water Technology includes a system of multiple filters that provides a defense against a broad range of tap water contaminants. Among the filtration media employed is a natural carbon filter that captures microscopic particles. Charcoal carbon is a natural material that operates on the adsorption principle. It provides a vast amount of surface area for adsorption, and thus makes an extremely effective filter medium.
The PiMag® Waterfall®, a gravity-fed device, features several stages of filtration. The water flows between spheres of pi ceramic material during this process. The final stage features a bed of mineral stone, based on the agitation/tumble filtration provided in naturally-cleaned streams.
The slightly alkaline water produced by the PiMag Waterfall may help offset the acidic nature of a typical modern diet and other environmental conditions. It decreases oxidation reduction potential — a high ORP contributes to oxidative decomposition. An ionizing effect further reduces potential oxidation by providing ions to neutralize free radicals.
Similar filtration, pi and magnetic technology is incorporated in the PiMag® Sport Bottle. This system also produces alkaline water to help decrease oxidation reduction potential.
The PiMag® MicroJet™ Shower System uses yet another form of filtration, to reduce the chlorine which is absorbed by the body via the lungs and skin surface when showering. This shower system features technology that neutralizes chlorine through a copper-zinc redox process. A primary filter deflects a range of water contaminants such as dirt, odor and sediment. Patent-pending Air Induction Technology increases filtration efficiency while diminishing water surface tension.
Pi and magnetic systems
A unique feature of PiMag® Water Technology is the addition of pi minerals to the process. Pi water was originally discovered by Japanese scientists in the 1970s. Observation had suggested that the water from an isolated hillside stream had a remarkable effect on the plant life in the area.
The scientists examined the environment and found that it contained an unusual collection of topographical features. The surrounding hills contained magnetite and calcium. The watercourse flowed over silicates, the material that forms natural crystal. The water from it was found to have an atypical combination of minerals, and was naturally alkaline. This alkalinity helps to balance the acidic diet and stress-induced acidity that is commonly experienced in modern life.
Duplicating these conditions in the laboratory resulted in a form of this “pi water.” Magnetic technology was added, as a magnetic field assists in conditioning water without adding salt or other chemicals.
Independent testing, including that performed by public agencies including the United States government, has shown that source water for municipal supplies may present significant amounts of pollutants. Chlorine or ozone added to combat these dangers, are themselves toxic. Reducing the amount of both the contaminants and chlorine can result in water that offers the potential for better health.
PiMag® Water Technology also possesses advantages over commercially bottled water. An immediately obvious one is cost: the purchase and operation of a PiMag® product, which filters tap water, is an order of magnitude less expensive than the ongoing cost of bottled water — which itself is often nothing more than treated tap water.
The environmental cost of bottled water is equally formidable. A mountain of discarded, non-biodegradable containers is a potential ecological disaster.
These plastics may pose a health risk in more ways than their harm to the environment. Certain chemicals in the plastic containers are known to leach into the water these containers hold, especially if the bottles are stored or on shelves for any appreciable length of time. On consuming this water, these chemicals may be absorbed and retained in body tissue. Owning and using a PiMag® water product avoids the potential for harm inherent in the regular consumption of bottled water.
Water is vital to supporting every bodily function: digestion and nutrient absorption, proper circulation, removal of toxins and more. Ensuring an adequate supply of good water is thus essential.
