Acid Neutralizer Filters
Low pH? Blue stains from acid water? Now you can eliminate corrosion of copper and galvanized pipes, fixtures & appliances. Stop pin hole leaks. Stop blue green stains on fixtures!
This combination water neutralizer and filter unit comes complete with:
Calcite or Calcite-Corosex media blend
Fleck backwash control valve
Stainless Steel By-Pass valve included
As untreated water passes through filtration tank, the water comes in contact with Calcite and Corosex which raises the waters pH to become neutral or slightly higher. This is the most common technology to raise pH in residential and light commercial settings.
Backwashes only with water, no additional chemicals needed.
Acidic waters on contact with Calcite slowly dissolve the calcium carbonate media to raise the pH which reduces the potential leaching of copper, lead and other metals found in typical plumbing systems. Periodic backwashing will prevent packing and maintain high service rates. Depending on pH and service flow, the Calcite bed will have to be periodically added to as the dissolved calcite depletes.
As the Calcite's calcium carbonate neutralizes the water, it will increase hardness and a softener may become necessary after neutralizing filter.
