WATER PROBLEM.... LOW PH
Green Stains, AcidicWater
pH is a measure of how Acidic or how Alkaline your water is. On a pH scale of 0 to 14, "7.0″ is completely Neutral...not acidic & not alkaline. As you go down the scale, the water is more & more acidic. For example 6.9 is more acidic than 7.0, 6.8 is more acidic than 6.9 and so on.
LOW pH or ACIDIC Water is a BIG Problem because it can cause corrosion damage to the metal parts of your water system including pipes & fixtures (copper, iron, galvanized and brass), water tanks & heaters. Even if you have PVC or PEX plumbing, you probably have copper or brass fittings in some places and almost always have metal water tanks & heaters. One common symptom of Acidic Water is GREEN or BLUE-GREEN Staining when copper or other metals are being "eaten up"!
Also, if you have Iron and/or Sulfur, the pH of your water is an important factor and may have to be raised for Iron and/or Sulfur removal equipment to work properly.
SOLUTION... Our pH Neutralizer
Our Model PHNT raises the pH of your water which decreases its acidity, thereby reducing the water’s corrosive and destructive properties. The PHNT contains a bed of material – usually Calcite & Corosex – trade names for finely ground marbleized limestone – which raises the water’s pH value. As water passes through this bed of material, a small amount of the bed material is dissolved and the acid is neutralized. As a result, the water becomes more alkaline (the pH value goes up) and it becomes less acidic & corrosive. Our PHNT has No filters, No Pumps, uses No harmful chemicals & there is nothing to constantly mix & pour into it! It should be installed before other water treatment equipment (if any) & after your pressure tank if you have a well, and it automatically backwashes about every 6 days to loosen the material and clean the bed.
Because the bed material slowly dissolves, about every 9 to 12 months some additional bed material needs to be added through a convenient "Dome Hole" on the top side of the tank so you do not need to remove the valve from the tank or disassemble your plumbing!
