Whole House Calcite pH neutralizer
Calcite is a naturally occurring calcium carbonate media.
One of the advantages of Calcite is it's 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 carbonate, 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 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.
Advantages of Calcite:
- Raises pH of water to a non-corrosive equilibrium
- Naturally occurring, inexpensive media
- Low uniformity coefficient for maximum contact
- Slower Reacting for controlled pH correction
