Water with a low pH can have an unpleasant taste, but it can also be hazardous. Acidic water can damage your pipes and put your family’s health in jeopardy. An acid neutralizer system can raise the pH of the water that comes through your pipes and help you avoid costly bills for repairs and medical treatment.
What Makes Water Acidic?
Minerals that get into water can reduce its pH to harmful levels. Vegetation near a water source and pollution that gets into rainwater can introduce minerals to the groundwater. Acidic water can then make its way into your home.

Acidic water can stain the sinks and tubs in your house and cause them to drain slowly or get clogged frequently. In addition, acidic water can corrode pipes, which are made of metal. If metal enters the water supply, it can cause a variety of potentially serious medical problems.
