The Definitive Water NEUTRALIZER pH balancing filter is a premium whole-house water filter specifically designed to adjust the pH of water, add minerals to the water and prevent corrosion in piping, geysers and equipment in low pH (acid water) environments.
Many areas in South Africa have water with low pH. A low pH means that the water is acidic and can corrode copper pipes and cause blue-green stains on plumbing fixtures in your home. The NEUTRALIZER backwashing acid neutralizer system is designed to normalize the acid balance of your water supply by using Calcite, which is crushed and screened white marble limestone.
Calcite is a naturally occurring calcium carbonate media. One of the advantages of Calcite is its self-limiting property. When properly applied, it corrects pH only enough to reach a non-corrosive equilibrium. It does not over-correct under normal conditions. Upon contact with calcite, acidic waters slowly dissolve the calcium carbonate to raise the pH which reduces potential leaching of copper, lead and other metals found in typical plumbing systems.
Periodic backwashing will prevent packing, reclassify the bed and maintain high service rates. Depending on pH, water chemistry and service flow, the Calcite bed will have to be periodically replenished as the calcite is depleted. As the calcite’s calcium carbonate neutralizes the water, it will increase hardness and a softener may become necessary after the neutralizing filter.
The NEUTRALIZER is a fully automatic backwashing filtration system and uses FDA approved Calcite. The electronic computer control cleans the media of accumulated contaminants while delivering pH adjusted, fresh water throughout your home.
If your pH is below 5.0, you need to consider utilizing a proportional pH Neutralizing System that does not use calcite, but rather uses chemical dosing to raise the pH (which coincidentally also doesn’t add hardness).
