Sounds like a scam, but apparently it's been used in Russia and Japan 
for "decades".  They spray it on sushi to keep it disinfected!
Why is it that we don't already have one of these in every bathroom and 
kitchen?  Why didn't I know about this?  Besides the fact that it sounds 
like it would obviate half of Proctor & Gamble's products? 

They're still $600-1000 per unit.  The design seems fairly simple, so a 
mass produced model should cost much less than a water softener.  You 
can't just transport the EOW because the clorine-dioxide, or whatever, 

There is an ion generator for hot tubs / spas, however I don't think it 
is the same thing.

$875 right now.  You have to wonder how many of those features are 
scientifically sound.  This unit produces both the alkaline water for 
drinking and the acidic water for external washing / disinfecting.
