You're reviewing: Alka Jug
- Great investment Review by Isobel
I recommend the Alka jug for softening and filtering water. The water in our flat can come out discloured (following earthquakes) and the jug has been an affordable option. I love the design and colours as well. A few weeks in and I'm not sure yet if I can feel the benefits of alkaline water, but it's early days.

- Produit excellent, Génial! Review by Dydyon
Ce produit est fantastique! Pas besoin de dépenser 4000 $US pour avoir de l'eau alkaline! J'ai fait vérifier le pH de l'eau produit par le filtre, il est bien autour de 9,5-9,8!! Génial pour moins de 60 $NZ, cela vaut vraiment le coup. Maintenant reste à savoir, si nous allons tenir les 300 litres annoncés dans la description.
Pas de mauvais goût, comme certains le disent, le gout est neutre, bien évidemment il faut nettoyer le filtre avant de l'utiliser, comme indiqué dans le mode d'emploi inclus dans la boite d'origine.

- You can taste the difference Review by Kash
Love the jug, the taste is so refreshing. The top isn't super secure and has fallen off a couple of times, but that's no biggie. You just learn to keep one hand on it while pouring out

- Drinking alkaline water since 2013 Review by Cedric
I discovered this product when attending a congress in 2013 and as a holistic practitioner I immediately saw all the advantages of this water. I never met the problems mentioned by some people nor my clients. I all the time pour the jug 2 to 3 times when I change my filter. To control the pH it is good to do that with the pH kit, I do not trust the little screen and I don't know which amount of water bmy family and clients. To drink alkaline water is easiest to manage your body pH than to take pills or to be aware of the pH of the food your are eating. Just a question of choice and my children never complain about the taste!

- Disgusting taste Review by Michael
This is my experience with the Alka jug and what I wrote to Healthpost customer service to describe it…
As I mentioned to you on the phone the other day. I received the Alka Jug and followed the instructions. I flushed it twice – the first time it released the Black carbon powder from the granulated charcoal which is normal and the second time it was pretty much all clear. To be safe I filled it a third time and then drank the water which was perfectly clear and it tasted delicious.
The next day I filled the jug as usual but instead of being clear the water was all cloudy. I tasted a small amount (because it looked so bad) and it did have a fishy taste as your customer Garth wrote in his review on your website – but worse than he described – because more than this, it had a definite plastic and glue-like taste and aftertaste (perhaps this could be from the resin layer in the filter? because resin-like is another word I could use to describe this most peculiar and disgusting taste – a taste that I have never experienced ever before in my life).
I then tipped that water out and refilled it three or four more times. Each time the cloudiness reduced slightly and the taste improved slightly but was still incredibly disgusting. I then rang you and after checking with your supplier you suggested that I keep flushing it. I did this approximately another 15 to 20 times over the next two days and even at the end of all this there was still a slight hint of that same yucky taste and a very small amount of powdery particles sitting in the water at the bottom of the jug (even though the water was now clear apart from these particles).
By this time I had completely lost all faith in the product and I phoned you again to ask if it was possible to get a refund. I am very grateful that your company has such a generous customer satisfaction policy and I was delighted that not only did you willingly accommodate such refund but you even paid my return courier fee! I wasn't expecting that, but I very much appreciate it – thank you kindly. I wish that every business was as easy and such a pleasure to deal with as yours and I hope that other businesses will learn from you setting such a fine example. I'm very happy that I found your website and the way in which you have treated me and I plan to be a long-term repeat customer because you stock many of the products that I buy but at a better price. A win-win situation which is exactly how I believe that business should be done. I will also be recommending Healthpost to my family and friends as an outstanding company!
Once again my sincere thanks for your generosity and wonderful service.

Question: How do I know when to change the cartridge ? The water is still registering very good, using the drops. and I have used more than the 300 Lts that they say. As I use it at least twice a day every day for over 6 months now, I cant remember when I bought it. can you help please. Thank you .

- Funny taste Review by Garth
Got a replacement filter sent up but still tastes a bit fishy. Kind of like those fish oil tablets.

- Money Well Spent!! Review by Halie
Completely blown away by how well this product works! Our water was un-drinkable due to copper pipes, and I was initially apprehensive about how well it would work as our water was so bad tasting. I tested the water from the tap which came back acidic at a '3' we have a sink filter which I also tested thinking it would be slightly better and even this came back as a '4'. After filtering it through the Alka Jug it was testing at a '10' !!! I had a taste of the water 5 minutes after being in the jug and it was completely different! Beautiful clear crisp tasting water. I cant stop drinking it..which is a plus! Will definitely continue using this product!!
