Themoreheavilycoatedtheplates,thelongeritwilltaketobreak downtheplatinumandexposethetitanium.(Ofcoursetheheavierthe coating,thegreaterthemanufacturingcosts.) Thesepointsareveryimportantfactors.Jupitersmeshplatesaremadefrom titaniumcoatedwithplatinum.Whilethismeshwillconductelectricity,there are3distinctdrawbackstousingwiremesh: 1.

Inotherwords,eachtimeelectricitypassesthroughthesewiresthatcreate themesh,moreplatinumisbreakingdownintothewater.Whilethat,in itselfisnotharmfultothebody,itmeansthatthetitaniumwillbeexposed soonerandthatisharmfultothebody. Thatistheveryreasonthatbigger,moredensetitaniumplateswithathick platinumcoatingofferamoreeffectivelongtermsolution.Theseplateswill consistentlyproduceamorecompleteionizationprocessandwilllastmuch longer.Unlikeanyothercompany,Enagicoffersa5yearwarrantybecause theirunitsaremadetolast.
