Nikken PiMag Waterfall Review

Our Nikken Pimag Waterfall review found it may be the best water to drink. What we found will probably surprise you.

The Nikken Pimag Waterfall is unique because it does not focus on just one particular attribute of the best water to drink. The Nikken Pimag Waterfall is designed to produce healthy water the body wants and can use immediately.

Nikken created the Nikken Pimag Waterfall to replicate more natural water like our ancestors drank.

More natural water? Most modern water is treated with Chloramine and pumped through a piped distribution system. In larger cities, that system can be a thousand or more miles long. It is not the historical water our ancestors drank.

If you read our article “What is Healthy Drinking Water?”, one of our definitions of healthy water was to find water that was as close as possible to the water our ancestors drank before the need for man to get involved with water distribution.

The Pi in Nikken PiMag Waterfall

Pi water, meaning ‘life’ water, was discovered in the 1970s. The observation of the effect of water led scientists to one particular Japanese valley where the water stream had a remarkable impact on the plants and trees in the area.

Nikken scientists created a water filter to duplicate the conditions they found in that valley. Nikken wanted to provide water filtration to reduce and eliminate contaminants as nature does without adding chlorine or other chemicals.

They added mineral properties they found in the valley to the filter. Then they added a magnetic field to assist in reducing mineral buildup. This helps to condition the water. 

Finally, the water sits in and flows around mineral stones to add minerals to help the body's health. The resulting water was called ‘Pi Water’ or Water of Life.

The Nikken PiMag Waterfall Water Filtration System

Nikken uses some proprietary technology and media to produce healthy drinking water. The advanced filtration technology meets or exceeds filtered water NSF water standards: 

  1. Standard 42 [Aesthetics],

  2. Standard 53 [Health],

  3. Standard 372, [Low [No] Lead]

  • Clarity - Particulates as small as 5 microns are filtered, exceeding Standard Class 2-5

  • Chloramine filtration exceeds Standard

  • Chlorine filtration exceeds Standard

  • Cyst reduction exceeds Standard

  • Lead reduction exceeds Standard

  • Bacteria reduction is greater than 99.99%

  • It helps filter out pharmaceuticals showing up in city water sources

The filtration is natural without adding chemicals. We will discuss the filtration more a little later.

The system uses a ring magnet of 1,200 gausses to reduce sediment clumping and build-up as it helps to condition the water without adding salt.

 The PiMag Waterfall filter is a gravity-fed system of multiple filters. Those filters clean out a broad range of tap water contaminants. The filter employs a natural carbon that captures microscopic particles. The charcoal carbon works by absorption. With the high amount of surface area, charcoal carbon makes it an extremely efficient filter.

The water then flows over spheres of Pi ceramic material with the final stage a bed of mineral stones “based on the agitation/fumble filtration provided in naturally-clean streams.” source.

The ceramic in these filters also help to filter out pharmaceuticals.

Nikken PiMag Waterfall Review | Fiction or Science?

We know this sounds like fiction you find in fairy tales, but the Nikken PiMag Waterfall has a lot of science to back up, so read on.

Standard 42

42 is called the Aesthetic Standard, mostly concerned with the smell and taste of the water. It does not deal with the health properties of water. Standard 42 is what you find in Refrigerators and most Pitcher type filtering systems. Standard 42 is only concerned with making the water look and taste better. The Nikken PiMag Waterfall filtration Exceeds this standard.

Standard 53

53 is called the Health standard. It is designed to filter out heavy metals, including arsenic, cadmium, copper, selenium, and many others. Standard 53 also will filter out inorganics such as fluoride, nitrate, and nitrite. It also targets VOCs or Volatile Organic Compounds formed when chlorine combines with water. The Nikken PiMag Waterfall filtration Exceeds this standard.

Standard 372

273 is low lead compliance, crucial to human health, especially for children. The Nikken PiMag Waterfall filtration Exceeds this standard. If interested in more info on Lead, search the Internet using Flint and Lead.

Mineral Water

Using a basic pool or spa chlorine/acidity tester you can buy at most hardware or pool/spa supply stores, we found a consistent value of around 8.5 pH. We tested all kinds of water, from bottled water to tap water from different cities as the source water, and the results were very consistent. That pH value is very healthy.

Disclaimers and Warnings

The contaminants or substances removed or reduced by this water treatment device are not necessarily in your water. Do not use microbiologically unsafe water or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after use in this product. We recommend use with potable water only.

Caution: Use cold water only.

This product contains silver used to inhibit the growth of bacteria in the filter to prolong the life of the filter. Silver has low toxicity to humans but is highly toxic to fish and other aquatic life. This product is designed to reduce objectionable tastes, odors, colors, aesthetic chlorine, chloramines, VOCs, and mercury from municipally treated tap water.

Nikken PiMag Waterfall Review | Thoughts and Summary

In our research, we heard some common themes of pets and children preferring the PiMag Waterfall water to almost anything. Many parents told us how their children would ask for water more than soda.

The Recyclable polymer is certified to be non-toxic, BPA, Phthalates, and Bisphenol free, which is very cool.

The Good

Nikken PiMag Waterfall Review – Finally, a water filter system with straightforward honesty about what it filters. In our opinion, it builds trust and speaks about the company.

Another beautiful thing we see in this system is the intention to give this water the structure of natural water. Nikken wanted your body to recognize this as natural water. The Pi material, the mineral stones, and the magnetic field all represent the natural state of water flowing downstream.

This natural water effect could account for the stories of pets and children naturally preferring the PiMag water. Plants love the minerals in the water.

We asked Nikken if they ever planned to produce an under-counter model, and the answer was quick and assured, “No.” Why? Water is a solvent. If it sits in a tube of any kind, the quality of the water is affected. They can only approve their product if the water comes from the spout and into the glass.

We also liked the lack of wastewater and the gravity-fed nature of the system, which does not need electric power to operate. The Nikken PiMag Waterfall is very sustainable.

Our simple tests verified a pH of around 8.5, which is excellent to give this water all the health benefits of a Mineral pH water to the body. We tested different types and brands of water, with results very close to all the other results.

The Bad

Keep it out of the sun. Even with the Silver to mitigate bacteria in the filter, keep it out of the sun.

The silver is not suitable for fish, so keep your fish out of it.

Both negatives did not deter the loyalty for the product shown by those who use the Nikken PiMag Waterfall. We saw the same enthusiasm and devotion from only one other system we reviewed.

We did notice the warning to use potable water and the straightforward statement of what his system does. The Nikken PiMag Waterfall is designed to be used with Municipal Tap Water, which has an array of disinfectants in the water

The Summary


Our Nikken PiMag Waterfall review showed us it is one of the best, if not the best system we have reviewed to date. This is especially true if you live in a water district where the water is potable. Many may not have heard of the Nikken PiMag Waterfall, but here it is anyway. This product will move on to our head-to-head review with another system.

BHBM Rating: 6 out of 5 Stars

"Since I started drinking rock water [her name for the PiMag Waterfall] about two years ago and have noticed a huge difference in my body. I will not drink any water now that is not filtered with my Nikken water bottle or my countertop system. I have put my countertop system into my refrigerator because I love my water chilled cold. I am so convinced the water helps my joints and body because when I drank bottled water for TWO days while staying with my parents, I noticed I had calved cramps, and my body just felt weaker, and my fibromyalgia pain seemed to be worse as well. I truly didn't understand how much chemicals are really in our water until I saw our Nikken water filter and how much dirt it took out. The filter was dirty! Nothing like my old Brita filter where you can't see what is taken out. I would not get rid of my water filter for anything in the world, the taste alone is irreplaceable. It's so crisp and clean that it makes you feel hydrated longer. It's something I recommend for anyone who cares what they put in their body."
