Yes. Water that enters the ionizers first goes through a filter that removes the taste and odour of chlorine contained in tap water. Then electrolysis breaks down the size of the water clusters, from 12-16 molecules to micro-clusters of 5-8 molecules. This makes the water taste smoother and silkier. Alkaline water tastes great, and makes better tasting coffee, tea and juice. It is also wonderful to cook with because it helps hydrate the food and bring out its flavour.
