Acidic water poses a serious threat to your home’s plumbing. Without the right filtration system, this low-pH flow will eat away at your pipes costing you thousands of dollars in repairs as leaks spring open throughout your home. An acid neutralizer water treatment system will balance your water’s pH levels and help protect your fixtures and pipes. In this article, the pros at Tri-County discuss the unique benefits of this filtration system and the importance of regular acid neutralizer tank maintenance.

What Is an Acid Neutralizer?
When we turn on the tap, most of us assume we’re getting safe, clear and clean drinking water. Unfortunately, in many parts of the country, even the clearest flow contains particles, minerals, and contaminants. In some cases, this sediment can affect the pH levels of your water turning it acidic.
Acidic water is corrosive and will, over time, start to break down your plumbing. Not only can this lead to leaks opening up in your system but it can also cause piping materials such as copper to leech into your home’s water supply.
An acid neutralizer is a device installed at the point where water first enters your property. This water treatment system contains a high-pH calcite that will help balance or “neutralize” the pH of the water flowing to your home.
Why Is Regular Maintenance Important?
The calcite used to filter your home’s water and boost pH levels is dissolved during this process. As a result, this chemical must be replenished on a regular basis to prevent acidic water from entering your home. Depending on your average annual water usage, levels will have to be topped up once every 6 or 12 months.
At Tri-County Water Services, we specialize in maintaining, repairing, and installing a variety of water treatment systems. Our pros will work to ensure that your acid neutralizer has enough calcite to protect your home’s plumbing. The result: Peace of mind that your water is clear, clean, and safe.
