The Jupiter Athena has proven its reliable build quality and has remained a solid Ionizer over the years. It is considered a mid-range unit (5 Plates) although it is priced considerably high for its power and output. When compared to other mid-range Ionizers like the KYK Genesis or Life 7700, it is clear that although reliable, and backed by a strong company – this unit has some drawbacks. We really liked the fact that it has a strong dual filtration system. The low levels of power & ORP produced are less than ideal. It’s clear that for around the same price, you could pick up a stronger more efficient machine.
