What Is an Acid Neutralizer Filter?
Water high in acid poses a threat to your fixtures and pipes. This low-pH supply can cause corrosion leading to leaks and increased levels of metals such as copper and lead in your water.
An acid neutralizer filter is designed to balance your water’s pH to prevent the issues listed above. Situated at the point where water first enters your property, this filter uses a filtration medium to reduce your water’s acidity and ultimately stabilize your its pH.
Do I Need an Acid Neutralizer Filter?
Is your water discolored? Does it have a metallic odor or taste? Have you noticed leaks? Chances are your water is acidic.
At Tri-County Water Services, we offer comprehensive water testing. We will visit your property, take samples of your water, and send these samples to a lab for testing before providing you with a detailed analysis of your water’s contents. Based on these results, our pros can recommend whether or not you will benefit from an acid neutralizer filter or a different water treatment system.
Do Acid Neutralizer Filters Require Maintenance?
Yes. The filtration medium (or calcite) used to filter your supply and reduce acidity is dissolved during the filtration process. The compound must be replenished on a regular basis to ensure the system functions efficiently. Depending on your monthly water usage, calcite should be refilled at least once every 6 to 12 months.
