    IMHO I wouldn't use it for your tank. RO/DI has been the tried and true method for almost everyone on here. I have spent enough time in the fitness industry seeing all different kinds of "miracle waters" that are completely useless.

    ^ Especially wouldn't use it if they directly state that they put things back in that are normally in your tap water.

    Looks like a bunch of meaningless technobabble and quackery.

    They don't even have their science correct. It states several places that it increases antioxidants and yet it raises the ORP (oxidation/reduction potential) to 700 mV. This is highly oxidizing water which is great if you want to kill things like bacteria for instance. BUT at an ORP that high it will also likely damage fish gills. This is why when people feed strong oxidizers like ozone, they reduce it with carbon filters or other means before it hits the tank.
