Negative ORP (-mV) Reading in Ionized Water

A water ionizer separates water into alkaline and acid fractions using a process known as electrolysis.

Ionized water is claimed by manufacturers to be extremely beneficial to human health and marketed with claims that it is an antioxidant which can slow aging and prevent disease.

Some research suggests that alkaline reduced water may be useful in scavenging free radicals in the laboratory setting.

Negative ORP (-mV) testing for Ionized Water

Prior to using your electrode for the first time, follow the steps:

- Conditioning

1. Remove the protective cap from the bottom of the electrode and rinse the electrode with distilled or deionized or bottle water.

Some probe probes are shipped dry, it is normal to see some yellow/white salt crystals inside the cap or on the electrode, the salt is from dried storage solution, and they will disappear when rinsed with water.

2. Place the new ORP electrode in a beaker containing acid part of the Ionized / Kangen water, soaking the ORP probe for three days in the water (pH 3 or lower) before first testing.

3. To reduce the probe conditioning time, pretreat the MW500 ORP probe with Milwaukee MA9025 ORP pretreatment kit.

DO NOT let the ORP probe dry out AFTER CONDITIONING! Keep it in the acid (pH < 4) water or storage solution with the probe cap when it is not in use.

DO NOT wave the ORP probe as a stick when you are doing a demonstration! Put it back to the acid water ASAP. - We accept credit cards via PayPal, no PayPal account is required
