Acid Neutralizers - Fleck 7000 2 Cu Ft. Backwashing Acid Neutralizer With Calcite And Corosex
Acid neutralization is a must to prevent leaks maintain fixtures and ensure good health. Acidic water (water with a pH less than 7.0) can eat away at your plumbing and cause blue/green staining on your fixtures. Some also believe that water with a low pH can have adverse health effects. The pH system uses Calcite to neutralize the acid by dissolving and counteracting the acidity. In homes with pH less than 6.0 a blend of Calcite and Corosex is used complimenting each other. The Corosex is more aggressive providing the ability to raise very low pH levels while the Calcite is slow acting counterbalancing the Corosex and preventing excessive pH rise. Note: Due to the nature of pH systems some hardness is added to the water. Depending on existing hardness levels and pH level an water softener after the pH system may be recommended. The high quality tank also boasts a dome loading port for easy media replenishment. Since the media dissolves to neutralize the acid regular replenishment is necessary usually about once a year depending on water use pH levels and system size.
