Homeowners generally don’t think much about the water that flows through their pipes unless there’s a problem. If your plumbing system is damaged, water is staining your sinks, tubs, and clothes, or your hair and skin feel dry after you shower, it might be due to the pH of your water. A water neutralizer system can solve those problems.
Why Is Acidic Water a Problem?
If your water supply has a low pH that falls into the acidic range, it can corrode the pipes that serve your house and cause leaks. Acidic water can leave blue-green stains, damage appliances, and cause them to wear out prematurely or need frequent repairs.
Acidic water can also interfere with your quality of life and endanger your health. Water with a low pH can have an unpleasant taste, dry out your skin and hair, and stain your laundry. If acidic water damages pipes, toxic materials such as lead can seep into the water supply.
What Does a Water Neutralizer System Do?
A water neutralizer system can eliminate those issues. It uses minerals to raise the pH of water and bring it into a neutral range. Installing a water neutralizer is a simple and affordable way to protect your plumbing system and your family’s health. There are several types of water neutralizer systems that work in different ways, but the basic principle is the same: they bring the pH of the water supply up to a range that won’t damage your plumbing and appliances or put your family’s health at risk.
