This exciting addition to the IonLife family replaces the popular Microlite and has all the features that anyone would ever need in an above counter water ionizer. Ease of use and exceptional performance come with the latest touch screen technology at an amazing price.
While similar in size, shape, and weight to the Jupiter Microlite, the Jupiter Venus has been upgraded in several areas. This makes the Venus one of the best values on the water Ionizer market, as well as one of the most contemporary ionizers available.
The water cell is the heart of all Jupiter ionizers. Manufactured in Japan to standards that makes Jupiter the company of choice for large corporations such as LG, Samsung, Toyo and Hyundai - your Venus is guaranteed to not only make ideal alkaline and acid water but to continue to make the same quality water year after year. That is why IonLife was the first company to offer a five year warranty plus free shipping if any repair was required.
Jupiter Science has used a proprietary matting between the Venus cell electrodes. With any water ionizer, it is essential that this material allow water to pass during ionization. What can happen, however, is that, unless there is an automatic cleaning cycle, very hard water will leave deposits on this material and eventually lower its transfer efficiency. The new proprietary matting used in the Venus water cell is extremely resistant to mineral deposits. Lime, iron, and other minerals are "sloughed off" enabling better ionization for a long period of time.
The inner structure of the Venus water cell also enables a much better acid from alkaline water separation. This enhanced segregation between alkaline and acid water results in more efficient ionization as well as better isolation of any remaining chlorine or fluoride. This combination of efficient draining, improved matting, and revised inner structure enables the Venus to operate very efficiently on only one clean cycle of 10 seconds per every 20 liters.
The Venus controls have been designed with the Western kitchen in mind. The new control panel is membrane sealed making it easy to clean. A gentle touch on the buttons is all that is needed to change any setting.
a - Shows the different level of acid or alkaline
b - Gives an estimate of filter life - when last bar turns red it is time to order a new filter
c - Alkaline Water Indicator - illuminates when alkaline water is selected
d - Acid Water Indicator - illuminates when acid water is selected. A tune will always play when acid is selected or when Venus is in clean mode
e - Filtered Water Indicator - illuminates when filtered water is selected (filtered is clean but neither more acidic or alkaline)
f - Press this button for filtered water to come out the flexible drinking water hose
g - Press this button for acidic water to come out the flexible drinking water hose
h - Press this button for alkaline water to come out the flexible drinking water hose
i - Turns the sounds on and off. Also volume level can be adjusted
j - Lights up when units is self cleaning - auto clean for 10 seconds every 20 liters
k - When this lights up unit needs to be serviced
This special feature has been, until now, only available on much more expensive ionizers. This enables you to control the flow of water easily on your ionizer which in turn affects the strength of the alkaline water and -ORP. The slower the water flow the more time the water has to be altered by the ionization process. However, you will find that in almost all cases there will not often be a reason why you would need to slow the flow down due to the exception strength of the Venus's ionization chamber. The control knob though will prove very useful in helping to fine tune your prefered pH level so that you get the exact same pH level every time you use your Venus.
The Venus comes with the same .1M Biostone filter that is available in other top Jupiter models. This filter is very effective at helping to remove many water contaminants and will give a good 1000 gallons of filtered water. You also have the option of purchasing the Venus with a .01M Biostone - the finest domestic filter available. Jupiter has made replacing the biostone filter so much easier with the Venus. One simply opens the filter compartment door, pushes the filter down on its spring loaded pedestal, and pulls the filter out. New filter installation is literally a "SNAP".
This special feature allows for exception user control as you can now reduce the voltage if your water is very hard or increase the voltage if your water is very soft. In the USA there are places like southern California and Texas where there is a lot of extra calcium in the water and this water is called hard. Because a high level of minerals (or TDS) will produce a higher than average pH you may wish to reduce the voltage so that your acid and alkaline settings show a good range of choices. On the other hand in places like Seattle the water lacks minerals and is called soft. By increasing the voltage in these areas you can get a high alkaline pH as well as a good acid pH.
The Jupiter Venus water ionizer comes with a LIFETIME warranty on parts and a full five years warranty on labor. This means that if anything is wrong with your machine in the first five years, simply ship it back to the company's service location in Nevada, and they will repair it and ship it back to you free of charge. If after the first five years you have any issues of any kind, the company will again repair the machine for you, and only charge you the cost of labor. Labor costs $60 / hour. Most repairs are done in under one hour and labor will never exceed $195. With a warranty like this one, you can rest assured that your Athena will be providing you exceptional water for many years to come!

This is the third (and hopefully the last for a long time) water ionizer/filter I've bought and I'm happy with it overall. It has all of the important features without the higher price tag of other models. Compared to other Jupiter models, the only feature not included is the continuous "reverse action" cleaning system. However the Venus does run an automatic cleaning cycle (10 seconds) every 20 liters which should be fine unless perhaps you have extremely hard water. I can get an optimal range of about 4.0 - 10.5 pH, and this range can be shifted by adjusting the maximum flow rate with the built-in knob (great feature). This is not an "entry-level" unit, but a full-fledged work horse and I would recommend it to anyone. The only cons I have with the unit also apply to every other unit on the market in the U.S. now (AFAIK).
The water quality and taste is great since the Venus uses the same filter cartridges as the highest-end models. It would be nice if the filter life indicator was numeric instead of bars, but actual life depends on the source water and so even a numeric indicator can't be exact. The filters are .1 or .01 micron and last 1000 gals./1 yr. (more like 6 mos really). Although not over-priced compared to others available in the U.S., I would like the option of a longer life or cheaper filter. Specifically, the Panasonic ionizer I had in Japan used very similar filters (0.05 micron) that lasted for 4000 gallons/2 yrs. and only cost a little more, so I'm not thrilled about the ~3x price difference. The only difference seems to be that Jupiter filters include a "biostone" for infrared radiation of the water, but I can't tell any difference.
Unfortunately, the diverter value included with the unit is not well designed at all. I've gone through three now and am resigned to living with it because I can't find anything different to replace it with. It's fully usable but annoying because the pin doesn't pull itself back in all the way so you have to remember to push it "off". It's disappointing to drop close to a grand on a piece of equipment to have it come with a poor quality valve, but those valves seem to be ubiquitous for all counter-top water filters (look at the pictures here on Amazon).
Overall this is a terrific model from a reputable company and it matches the water quality of even the most expensive models for less. The design is more than adequately attractive, and it's a snap to set up and use. It has plenty of power to give you all the benefits of ionization. Steamed vegetables with Level 4 alkaline come out brightly colored and drinks taste great. I collect the acid water discharge in a container to use for cleaning and find that I need less cleanser with it. If you're looking to get healthier or get in shape, drinking alkaline water provides an extra boost to a good diet and exercise routine and makes it a lot easier to drink more water and fluids throughout the day.

My reason for purchase was to help my husband with his stomach problem
reflux. We also like the taste of the water. We travel and run into many different types of water the Jupier makes it all taste great.
My husband's problem isn't cured but he hasn't had to sit up at night like he did before.
This unit is easy to use and doesn't take up too much room in our motor home Its also nice looking so I don't mind having it on my counter. Our friends we stop and see on our way south were amased at how good their coffee was. Iam very pleased Idid this pchase.
