Acid Water Neutralizers correct the aggressive nature of low pH water coming from a well system. The signs that you have acidic water are pinhole leaks in copper pipes, blue/green stains in sinks, bathtubs, dishwashers, leaking water heaters or you may notice a metallic taste in the water. Acidic water is very destructive to household plumbing systems and is the most overlooked of all problem water conditions. These tanks are filled with calcite and magnesuim oxide and are essentially a very large “antacid tablet” for your water supply by slowly dissolving these natural buffering minerals as the water passes through the tank. Neutralizers also remove sediment and moderate amounts of iron but also impart some hardness into the water as the material in the tank slowly dissolves. The water will taste very good but some customers opt for the installation of a Water Softener to remove the limestone dissolved in the water from an Acid Neutralizer.
