Nikken #WaterFilter Review: PiMag Aqua Pour

by Jim C Green

In this commentary we take a look at the Nikken PiMag Aqua Pour Water Filter, and compare it with other like commercially available countertop water filtration systems. Nikken is a Japanese network marketing, or MLM, corporation founded in 1975. One of their very different product line features is the Nikken magnets. These magnets are used in the water filtration process, as well as the many other wellness product lines manufatured by Nikken. We were interested in both the technology as well as how a network marketing product fared against others in the marketplace.

We found the Nikken PiMag Aqua Pour Gravity Water System available on Amazon.com in both new and used condition. The Nikken website lists this item at $299.00 and includes a short video overview as well as information about dangers present in both tap water and bottled water. We certainly have the same opinion on these points.

Other related Nikken water filter products include the Deluxe Countertop Water System, the Deluxe Under Counter System, Optimizer II, and Ultra Shower System. The company video claims that its magnetic technology doesn't remove beneficial components during the filtration process as does reverse osmosis technology and other purification techniques.

Although having no personal experience with the Nikken water filters, rather we sought to see how they were rated by people that have actually used them. To accomplish this, we analyzed customer ratings existing on Amazon.com and other Internet sources.

In addition to the PiMag Aqua Pour, we reviewed consumer ratings and comments of two competitive products, albeit using distinct technology. Beginning with the Nikken water filter product:

Nikken PiMag Aqua Pour Rating - 3.5 Star Rating - The reviews of this product were mixed.. One comment that is of concern is that the company will reportedly not make public independent lab test results (the Nikken website does include a statement that the PiMag water system "meets or exceeds the standards specified in ANSI/NSF 42 and 53").

New Berkley Water Filter System

Big Berkey Water Filter System - 4 Star Rating - All reviews are highly favorable. One comment included a reference to independent testing: The Black Berkey filter formulation has been tested by State and EPA accredited laboratories to exceed EPA and ANSI/NSF (Std. 53) protocol, and included a link to see test results from the University of Arizona, Spectrum Labs and the LSU Department of Toxicology and Environmental Science.

Multipure Countertop Water Filter

Multipure CBVOCSC Countertop Water Filter - 4.5 Star Rating - All reviews highly laudatory - Only concern mentioned was: "I wish the flexible pipe was a little longer, so I could position the filter further away from the sink." According to product description: "Complete lab tests and California certifications are available at the company's web site."

Finally, the Nikken PiMag Aqua Pour Water Filter and other Nikken magnetic-based technologies seem to be very popular. If the company would publish independent test results we could recommend this product without reservation. Competitive produt evaluations are slightly better, although a small number of reviews is available.
