How do I choose the correct replacement filter for my water ionizer?

Choosing the correct filter for your water ionizer, and for your specific tap water type, can be a confusing task to many.  This article will attempt to clear up some of that confusion to help you make a better, more informed decision. SnyderHealth.com has created the water ionizer Filter Assistant to help identify which filters will fit your specific machine, but some results offer multiple filter choices.

The first thing you need to know when choosing the correct filter is to determine whether your water is city/municipally supplied, or whether you have "well water" (from your own private well).  City water is almost always treated with chlorine/chloramines and other chemicals, while very few people add these types of treatment chemicals to their own water well. 

The second factor is whether your ionizer is a single filter or a dual filter unit. Dual filter ionizers can include different combinations of filters, satisfying more filtration needs. 

Another important thing to know is whether your municipally-supplied tap water is fluoridated or not.  For the newer dual-filter systems, you can now get an internal fluoride filter as a stage 1 option, whereas older units and single filter ionizers must use an external fluoride pre-filter in order to remove fluoride.

Let's break down the choices by looking at the each of the specific water ionizer models for each brand, the specific water situation and the filters that you should get for that situation.
