This wiki has been updated 8 times since it was first published in November of 2018. Increase your metabolism. Slow down the aging process. Reduce inflammation and prevent disease. These are just a few of the benefits that alkaline water purportedly offers, and these pitchers also supposedly filter out heavy minerals, lead, arsenic, and other contaminants. Do they really work? Science has yet to find any basis for it — but they make your water taste better. Isn't that enough? When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

October 16, 2020:

Several additional brands and models of alkaline pitchers have become available since our last update, regardless of the fact that there is no scientific evidence that water marketed as alkaline has any health benefits that go beyond those of tap water. Research is also inconclusive regarding whether alkaline water could have any harmful effects on your health. Like anything you choose to put into your body, it should be consumed at your own risk.

Nevertheless, we've added four new brands to the list, each with high marks and relatively low prices: the Hskyhan 3.5 Liters, the Santevia Systems White, the Lake Industries 7000, and the pH Vitality. We particularly like the pH Vitality for its modern stainless steel design and elevated style, which make it stand out amidst all of its plastic counterparts. We've also removed the Health Metric and the Oxa Smart, which are no longer available.

We've also made updates to several items, including the Invigorated pH Restore and the EHM Ultra - the latter of which holds its place at number one on our list.

Finally, we've added a new Special Honor for the Life Ionizer unit, which is designed for your entire home.

November 13, 2018:

Many brands focus so heavily on fixing pH levels that they ignore the basics of creating an effective pitcher. We focused on units that were convenient to use — that poured steadily and filtered quickly, for example — as well as those that promised potentially life-changing health benefits.

Special Honors

Life Ionizer LC-30 Under Counter If you don't want to deal with the hassle of filling and refilling a pitcher - and you are serious about alkaline water - the Life Ionizer LC-30 Under Counter will take care of business. You'll have 10 liters per minute flowing out of your faucet, and you can choose three levels of pH to suit your needs. The company can also set up monthly payment plans for the high-end machine, which costs a pretty penny. lifeionizers.com
