Manufacturers' claims aside, water treated with the IonatorEXP™ system didn't perform any better than regular old tap water in a disinfecting experiment. The system converts tap water into ionized water, which is supposed to offer cleanliness without chemicals. Researchers found that Staphylococcus aureus bacteria and E. coli both grew perfectly well in petri dishes sprayed with IonatorEXP™activated water. Two disinfectants were tested as well, and they did a great job inhibiting bacteria growth, whereas the IonatorEXP™water and tap water had no effect at all.
