Athena Water Ionizer The Athena represents the absolute zenith of performance, features, functionality and styling available in water ionization technology today - All backed by the dependability and certainty of Emco Tech - the world leader in ionization since 1982.

The Athena is the only Emco Tech water ionizer that offers on-board dual filtration capability. The fiber pre-filter cleans your water of sediment and particulates 1 micron and larger before entering the advanced Biostone Filtration System! Pre-filtration enhances the efficiency of the .1M Biotone filter that has 9 stages that effectively cleans and remove contaminents from your tap water.

The .01 Ultra Biostone flter is optionly available for source water such as from a well where there are concerns of microbes and a need for finer filtration. See Table of Microorganisms sizes and significance.

The new patented Emco Tech Mesh Diode Electrode technology effectively increases surface area and allows for its compact size. Do not be fooled by those manufacturers who claim that a large plate size is the key to ionization. It generally indicates less advanced and sophisticated technology. Effective conductivity is the key. These manufacturers must claim this because their inferior plates need to be larger or in some cases more plates to get the same amount of conductivity that ours do. Rest assured you get the absolute best combination of time-tested, proven materials and the benefits of Emco Tech's cutting edge research and development. This is the technological advantage of the Athena.

Research shows that the ideal level for drinking alkaline water is between pH8.5 - pH9.5 with an ORP of -250mv. It is unimportant if an ionizer creates big -ORP numbers at really high levels of pH. Water over a pH10 begins to acquire an unpleasant taste due to the heavy concentration of minerals. What is important is drinking water at the ideal alkaline levels of pH8.5 - pH9.5 with good -ORP. Of course the Athena will create the big -ORP numbers at the higher pH ranges, but it is designed to give you the best ORP at the lower levels of pH...the levels that you will actually enjoy drinking.

The Athena was tested as having the best alkaline pH, lowest acid, and greatest -ORP in an independent lab test against several other ionizer brands on the market today and you may view these certified lab test results in the video below.

An ionizer is an investment and you will want your water ionizer to last. The electrodes are the crucial component in your ionizer and it is important to keep them clean. All other units on the market clean by a simple reverse polarity - which still allows some scale buildup.

DARC cleaning mechanism

DARC (Double Action Reverse Cleaning)

The Athena Ionizer includes the patented DARC system. This feature completely removes any scale from the electronic cell helping to make sure your ionizer stays in top working condition. The DARC system automatically reverses polarity It completely eliminates the mineral scaling from collecting on the electrodes, ensuring you can enjoy many long years of healthy water. The DARC system cleans as you ionize – so you never have to wait for a cleaning cycle to complete.


Athena Ionizer offers a flow control valve that allows you to fine tune its performance by giving you complete functional control of the water pressure moving through your ionizer. There are no gimmicks or additional circuitry, just the time tested advantages of true flow control, which also provides the possibility of alternate installation options. The Athena is one of the only ionizers that can be installed three (3) different ways : 1) At your sink with a diverter from the tap, 2) At your sink plumbed directly to your cold water line. There is no diverter and you can operate the Athena while running the hot water out of your tap, and 3) Under sink completely out of sight with a small dedicated faucet (optional under sink kit required).

Performance Features:

  • *Mesh Plate Electrodes: Five of the most advanced mesh platinum-titanium electrodes in the world ~ backed by Emco Tech's reputation
  • *DARC Cleaning System: Will completely eliminate mineral scaling from the ever-important electrodes – increasing the life of your ionizer. It also means you never have to wait for a cleaning cycle to finish before you get another glass of delicious ionized water.
  • *Biostone Filter: The enhanced performance and functionality of a dual filtration system (2 filters) which includes the revolutionary and patented 9-stage Biostone filtration system.
  • *MICOM Electronics: The MICOM control panel optimizes the pH and ORP of your water and helps keeps your ionizer in top working condition. A new indicator light alerts you if service is needed on your ionizer.
  • *Flow Control: The Athena has a flow control valve that allows you to fine tune the performance and gives you true functional control of the water pressure through your ionizer. This flow control valve is a clear advantage to achieving high alkaline and -ORP values.
  • *LCD Flow Rate Indicator: This beautiful color Liquid Crystal (LCD) Displays flickers faster or slower to indicate the rate of water flow through your Athena.
  • *Calcium Port: This port allows you to add extra calcium to your ionizer. It is important to note that the Athena is a very strong ionizing unit and will not require the use of extra calcium in most areas of the country. Some areas however have soft water or water that is low in naturally-occurring calcium and other dissolved minerals. This feature is intended to boost ionization performance in those areas when necessary.
  • *Protective features: Low Pressure Alarm Not enough water flow can damage any ionizer. Emco Tech has built in an LCD alarm that will illuminate when there is not enough water pressure into your Athena to operate it safely. This feature safeguards the water cell and protects your investment.
  • *Temperature Shut Down: The Athena employs a thermal switch in the water cell to shut down the ionization process if the temperature in the cell gets too hot. This small but valuable feature gives you peace of mind.
  • *Electrical Protection: The Athena has a glass tube fuse that will protect the expensive circuitry in case of power fluctuations or surges.
  • *Hot Water Alarm: Hot water can damage your filters. This LCD alarm will illuminate to safeguard your Athena against damage.
  • *Voice Confirmation: This feature audibly tells you (the machine actually speaks to you) what type of water you have selected each time you use the ionizer. The volume is fully adjustable, allowing you to turn it up, down, or completely off.
  • *Alkaline and Acidic level indicators: The Athena has an LCD indicator which will numerically display the level of ionization you have selected. It also has LCD image icons that display the most typical use for any given setting.
  • *Dual Filter Life Indicator:

Comes with everything you will need to perform a standard installation. Unique or custom installations may require extra parts and or adapters which are conveniently available at most home improvement or hardware stores.
