does the Hexagon have so many cartridges?
There is a lot of science behind the Hexagon system. The various
media utilized in the 6 cartridges
were carefully chosen to ensure that all germs, bacteria, parasites,
chemicals and contaminants are removed and all of the healthy benefits
of natural living water are restored.
is the Hexagon different from other water filtration systems?
There are two major differences. First of all, most filtration systems
use only one or two types of filtration or purification technology.
Unfortunately, there are just too many types of contaminants in
our environment today for one or two processes to handle. Each filtration
or purification process is good for removing certain contaminants
but not others. The Hexagon system uses an advanced 6-cartridge
process with multiple technologies to effectively remove the entire
spectrum of contaminants without removing healthy minerals and trace
The second major difference is that
even a very good filtration system will generally only produce clean
water that is safe to drink. The Hexagon produces clean LIVING water
and gives your body what it needs for cellular hydration. It goes
beyond filtration or purification and replicates nature's ecosystem
to recreate all the qualities of natural, healthy water (the qualities
were killed by pollutants and chemical treatment plants). Hexagon
water is oxygen-rich,
has the same pH as our blood plasma and contains the right balance
of healthy ionic minerals for your body. Its small, energized molecular
clusters penetrate cell membranes easily, maintaining maximum hydration
for health and well-being - something purified water alone cannot
the Hexagon is so much better, why is it cheaper than other systems?
Quality is a fact. Pricing is a choice. Products are
not priced according to manufacturing costs, but according to whatever
the company feels the market will bear. Water filtration companies
know that people will pay a lot for good water because it is so
important to their health. The money gained by the huge mark up
between the manufacturing cost and the retail price is generally
paid out to salespeople, (although a healthy portion can be kept
by the companies as well.) If you want to know how much of your
hard- earned money is going to sales commissions rather than water
quality-- just look into being a representative for any system you're
thinking of buying.
The Hexagon is a top quality water
treatment system. In fact, it is truly one of the best you can buy.
It was custom built for our parent company, Cosway, after they spent
years reviewing various water technologies and the claims made about
them. There are three reasons the Hexagon is priced so reasonably:
- For over 20 years, our parent company, Cosway has operated with
the philosophy--"Quality Products at Affordable Prices."
The Hexagon is no exception. They built the best possible system,
and they offer it at the best possible consumer price.
- eCosway is a global company that markets reasonably priced products
and has activity requirements that are "double" for
people all over the world. The Hexagon price may seem inexpensive
for some people in some countries, but to people in other countries,
the price represents a huge sacrifice. We want quality water and
good health to be available to everyone everywhere.
- The Hexagon pricing strategy was not designed to give salespeople
one big commission one time. It was designed to give people an
incentive to join as eCosway Business Owners. (Would you rather
have one golden egg, or a goose that LAYS golden eggs?) eCosway
offers an income opportunity that is based on the natural laws
of word-of-mouth. When people find great products at great prices,
they naturally tell others. When people use word of mouth to create
a network of Shoppers and Business Owners, we naturally pay them
for it since we save on marketing costs. We called this Mutual
Marketing because it is a mutual win for everybody: Shoppers,
Business Owners, and Suppliers.
does Hexagon water compare to RO or distilled water?
Reverse Osmosis and Distillation processes do a very good job at
removing contaminants from your water, but they start with dead
tap water and do nothing to restore the vital properties of natural
Water that has had everything removed
from it, is considered molecularly "aggressive" which
means that it eagerly bonds with contaminants from the air and leaches
substances from plastic containers. Pure living water, on the other
hand, naturally resists germs, bacteria and pathogens because of
its mineral and oxygen content and because of its more "completed"
Here is an excerpt from the book, Don't
Drink The Water-The Essential Guide to Our Contaminated Drinking
Water and What You Can Do About It (a consumer guide that does not
endorse any particular product, but merely explains different technologies
that are available):
"RO systems waste water at
the rate of 4 to 9 gallons for every gallon of drinking water
produced. This problem, coupled with the fact that the waste water
concentrates harmful impurities and reintroduces them into the
environment, has made the technology illegal in some water-starved
localities. But there is another, potentially more serious problem
with reverse-osmosis water filtration systems. According to a
study published in Canada by Canadian virologists, it was discovered
that RO systems have a penchant for growing bacteria, apparently
because the finished water is devoid of chlorine and takes so
long to be made. Because the water sits stagnant at room temperature,
sometimes for days, RO systems become an ideal breeding ground
for bacteria, which can double their populations every 20 minutes
or so. In their study of many types of RO systems, the virologists
measured an average of 10,000 bacteria per milliliter of water-20
times the accepted level for city tap water. About a third of
the filters produced water with more than 100,000 bacteria per
ml, or 200 times more than average tap water. Some bred up to
10 million bacteria per ml! The study went on to further demonstrate
that, because of this contamination, people who drink RO water
suffer 10 times the number of bouts with gastroenteritis as people
who drink tap water
because of the aggressive nature of reverse-osmosis
water, minerals should be added back to the water for long-term
The same goes for distilled water.
It is costly, time consuming and not necessarily good for you. Here
is an excerpt from, The Drinking Water Book (another
independent consumer protection book that discusses the pros and
cons of every type of water treatment process but does not endorse
"Purified water may also
be labeled distilled water, water for distillation uses, de-ionized
water, or demineralized water. In addition to having gone through
other cleansing processes, each of these labels indicates that
the water has had essentially all of its minerals removed and
none re-added. So in a sense of there being nothing in it but
water, this is the purest water. However, the relevant point is
not how "pure" it is, but whether or not it is good
Purified water has had all
of its foreign constitutents (which are mostly minerals) removed.
This is not a natural state. In the natural state, water contains
many different types of minerals. Once purified, water will try
to return to its natural state by reacting chemically with any
material it contacts. Because of this tendency, purified water
is "aggressive" water
In my opinion, based upon
the research I have surveyed, the "aggressiveness" of
purified water may cause long-term health problems."
read that drinking de-mineralized or distilled water is best. Why
do you add minerals?
There are many reasons for this. First of all, water without natural
minerals tastes really flat. If you want optimum health, you need
to drink a lot of water. Very few people are willing to drink 8
glasses of water a day when it doesn't taste good or satisfy their
Secondly, while the body can manufacture
many crucial vitamins, it cannot manufacture a single crucial mineral.
Supplements cannot provide minerals in ionic form (the form most
bio-available to your cells). Fruits and vegetables have ionic minerals,
but very few people can obtain them fresh enough, or eat enough
of them to satisfy daily mineral requirements. One of the best and
easiest ways to ensure that your body is getting all the minerals
it needs is to drink them!
Finally, the argument that it's better
to drink only distilled water is questionable. Here's another excerpt
from The Drinking Water Book:
"Literally dozens of books written
by well-meaning doctors, nutritionists and practitioners of holistic
medicine claim that essentially all disease is caused by minerals
in water-so that by drinking distilled water you will be reinvigorated,
your arthritis or hardened arteries will disappear, and so on.
These well-meaning authors actually know very little about water
chemistry, and the "evidence" they present is heavily
biased and without credibility. An argument against drinking distilled
water is that you lose a primary source of necessary minerals
in your diet, and further, that because the water has lost its
own minerals, it attracts and grabs minerals within your body,
causing a mineral deficit. This argument has some plausibility.
Though we get most of our minerals from fruits and vegetables,
and mineral shortages in our bodies are unlikely if a normal diet
of mixed foods is eaten, water that has a high mineral content
definitely contributes to good health
the past twenty-five years, research has continued to amass in
support of the beneficial role of minerals in water. Studies of
populations in areas with naturally occurring high mineral content
(versus low mineral content) have found significantly fewer occurrences
of cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes, respiratory diseases,
and other health problems."
usually boil my tap water before drinking it. Do I still need to
boil Hexagon water?
Hexagon water is completely safe, straight from the tap. The multiple-step
treatment system removes all bacteria, viruses, parasites and microbes
that boiling is supposed to kill, plus it removes all the toxic
chemicals that boiling doesn't.
if I boil or freeze Hexagon water, will the health-giving properties
The healthful properties of Hexagon water are not affected by temperature
changes. Just like natural living water, the energized, oxygen rich
micro-molecular structure of Hexagon Living Water is very stable.
You would have to pollute or poison the water to "kill"
why do you recommend that I only run cold water through the Hexagon?
should never run hot water through any filtration system because
hot water can damage the filters.
Hexagon water suitable for babies and children?
course! It is perfectly safe and is probably the best water you
can give them.
bottling affect the healthful properties of Hexagon water?
is no evidence to indicate that Hexagon water loses its healthful
properties when bottled, but it is always a good idea to drink the
freshest water possible. Bottling it for a day or a week is no problem.
If you want to keep it for a month or more, refrigerating it would
sick people benefit from Hexagon water?
Yes. In fact, cellular dehydration is the root cause of many illnesses
and diseases. (See www.watercure.com
for lots more information about this) Health experts and doctors
always advocate drinking lots of water whenever a patient is sick,
in pain, or on medication. Water hydrates
the cells and flushes out toxins. Since Hexagon living water gets
into cells better and faster than most other types of water, it
should help to expedite recovery and establish overall wellness.
You should increase your consumption of Hexagon water to at least
10-15 glasses a day during convalescence.
Hexagon water safe for people with kidney stones?
it is absolutely safe. If a person has kidney stones, it is very
important to drink plenty of good water to flush the system and
ease the burden on the kidneys.
you drink too much Hexagon water?
It is good to drink lots of Hexagon Water. Most doctors recommend
drinking at least 8 glasses of water per day, but if you have any
ailments or health concerns, you might want to try drinking 10 -
15 glasses of Hexagon Water per day.
The water pressure
in my house is low. Can I use a Hexagon system?
Hexagon has been tested under various water pressure conditions
and has always performed satisfactorily. If the pressure is particularly
low, water will flow through the Hexagon more slowly, but the quality
will be just as good.
I've heard that
if you leave a water system unused for a long period of time that
bacteria can build up inside the system. Does that happen with the
No. The cartridges of the Hexagon system are all designed to inhibit
bacteria growth, even if water is left stagnant inside. For extra
protection, the first cartridge of the Hexagon contains a
Micro-Free® Anti-Bacterial filter that is designed to stop bacteria
from entering the system in the first place. However, water that
has been sitting for a long period of time will probably not taste
as fresh, so if you haven't used the system in a while, you should
let the water run for several minutes before drinking it.
much do the cartridge refills cost and how often do they need to
The cartridges cost US $23.70 each. Two of them are permanent and
never need replacing. Two
of them must be replaced every year, and two of them must be replaced
every two years. If you follow the recommended replacement schedule,
you can have pure, clean living water straight from your tap for
less than a penny per liter!
is this system from?
Just like our eCosway Business owners, the Hexagon is truly international.
It is made up of filters and components from suppliers all over
the world and is assembled in Taiwan. The Dupont MicroFree®
Anti-Bacterial filter and the KDF® filter come from the USA,
one of the filters
is from Germany and other parts of the system come from Japan and
other countries. All components are certified by established quality
control institutions, tested for quality assurance, and carefully
put together to reproduce the ideal qualities of living water based
on the latest science and technology available.
the Hexagon use electricity?
It just attaches to your tap.
the Hexagon portable?
really. Although you can certainly detach it from the tap and move
it to another location, it is not designed to be carried around.
kind of maintenance does it require?
changing the filters according to the recommended replacement schedule,
you just need to clean the ceramic filter once in a while.
often do I need to clean the ceramic filter?
That depends on how dirty your tap water is. The dirtier it is,
the more often you will need to clean the ceramic filter. Most people
need to clean it once every 3 to 4 weeks. Just lift off the
top of the Hexagon and check it once in a while. You will be able to
tell by looking at the filter whether it
needs cleaning or not. It is white when it is clean and dark yellow
or brown when it is dirty.
do I clean the filter?
the filter following the diagram in your owner's manual using the
tool provided with your unit. Use the scrub pad that is provided
(or any other pad or brush) to clean the filter. Then just put it
back in its cartridge and you're all set!
I use this system if the water source is untreated well water?
No. This system is not designed to work with untreated ground water.
The much higher salt content
of untreated ground water can disrupt the performance of Hexagon's
filtration media. Check back soon though, because we will be coming
out with another model designed for this purpose.
can I be sure that the cartridges are still working?
The Hexagon system is designed to treat 10,000 liters of water between
The best way to ensure optimum performance is to change the cartridges
according to the recommended
schedule. If at any time you find your Hexagon water tastes unusual,
test it for chlorine using the Reagent provided. The presence of
chlorine is the quickest indicator that the cartridges are no longer
can the system's mineral cartridge last a lifetime? (Other systems
recommend replacing their mineral cartridges).
In nature, stones in river beds interact with the minerals carried
by the water so their ability to create the perfect ionic mineral
mix for drinking is continuously renewed. Only when acid rain and
pollution strip mineral deposits of their properties do they break
down and lose their vital mineral oxides. The Hexagon uses a proprietary
method of mineralization that replicates
Nature's activity so it is continuously self-renewing as long as
the tap water running through it has raw mineral content (all known
tap water does). Other brands of filtration systems mineralize the
water after using reverse osmosis or distillation which has stripped
the water of raw minerals. That's why their mineral filters need
does the "KDF" in cartridge 5 stand for?
KDF® stands for "Kinetic Degradation Fluxion", which
is a fancy name for one of the newest patented technologies for
water treatment. KDF® is a high-purity copper and zinc alloy
that eliminates contaminants by utilizing electrochemical oxidation
reduction (more commonly known as "redox"). When used
in conjunction with carbon filtration, KDF® forms an environment
which is highly effective at killing or disabling most microorganisms.
Here is a description about KDF® from the book, Don't
Drink The Water - The Essential Guide to Our Contaminated Drinking
Water and What You Can Do About It:
"Premium drinking water filtration
systems combine KDF®with other media which work best at removing
what KDF®won't. Since KDF® creates a bacteriostatic
environment, the carbon's bed does not become a breeding ground
for harmful bacteria. Independent laboratory tests confirm user
experience that KDF® is one of the best tools for improving
drinking and bathing water naturally and economically. Compared
to carbon-only units, KDF® lasts far longer, doesn't permit
bacterial growth, and removes a much wider range of inorganic
matter (e.g. heavy metals). Compared to reverse-osmosis, KDF®
is less expensive, wastes no water, does not require membrane
replacement, works in most water temperatures, and removes chlorine.
Compared to ultraviolet light, KDF® works in turbid water,
doesn't require bulb replacement or electricity, and takes out
inorganics. Compared to ozone, KDF® lasts longer than 17 seconds
for a continued residual bacteriostatic effect in water, does
not require electricity, and costs less. Compared to water softeners,
KDF® reduces hard scale and helps to condition water without
the need for brine tanks, or salt replacement. It is also less
expensive to install and operate."
The Hexagon uses KDF® in conjunction
with other proven technologies to make sure you are getting the
purest water possible.
does the "FIR" in cartridge 6 stand for?
FIR stands for Far Infrared Ray which is one of the healthy rays
emitted from the sun's spectrum. FIR has become somewhat of a phenomenon
in recent years. There are all kinds of products on the market that
emit Far Infrared Rays for healing purposes. Some health spas now
charge a small fortune for an afternoon of FIR exposure. The Hexagon
system utilizes FIR because it is an energizing wavelength that
is very close to the wavelength of natural water. When water passes
through the EC3000 energizing cartridge, the FIR high-energy
beads vibrate and resonate with the water molecules to break them
into small energized clusters that easily penetrate and nourish
your cells - just like natural living water that has been energized
by the sun and the earth's electromagnetic fields.
doesn't the Hexagon have a backwash system?
The Hexagon is designed in such a way that backwashing is completely
Backwashing systems supposedly flush accumulated sediment and toxins
out of a filter to regenerate it and increase its lifespan. However,
the effectiveness of this process is questionable and it can potentially
do more harm than good. In The Drinking Water Book,
" While carbon backwashing
will remove much of the accumulated sediment within the filter,
it generally is not effective in removing chemical pollutants
from within the pores of the carbon. Because of this, and because
it increases the potential for pollutant breakaway, I do not recommend
filters are designed to work effectively for the length of time
stated in your user's manual. They are also designed to ensure that
sediment and contaminants do not get back into the water
the free shipping offer apply to my country?
We have included a generous freight subsidy in the pricing of the
Hexagon. Since the actual shipping charge of a Hexagon to most countries
is equal to or less than the subsidy amount, there is usually no
freight charged to the customer. In countries where the actual freight
charge is more than the subsidy amount, the difference is charged
to the customer. From most of the examples we've seen, this amount
is very low, but since we have already given all the discounts we
can on this product, (and freight companies don't ship things for
free), we have no choice but to charge this difference to
The following countries are definitely
covered by the subsidy so shipping to these countries is free. If
your country isn't on the list, you will need to go through the
order process and enter in the delivery address to see the freight
charge (if any) to your destination. You will be able to see this
charge before you need to submit payment.
Please Note: If you live in a country that has offline Sales Centers,
you will not be eligible for the online discount or for subsidized
shipping. Please purchase your Hexagon at a local Sales Center.
