PH Neutralizers

Acid is the presence of hydrogen ions in water and is measured in water through the pH scale which ranges from 1 (most acidic) to 14 (most basic). Pure water is neutral with a pH of 7 and ideally, residential water should be between 7.0-7.5 on the pH scale. Note that the pH scale is logarithmic, so a pH of 5 is 10 times as acidic as a pH of 6.PH neutralizers

The EPA recommends treating water with a pH of 6.5 and below. Acid is neutralized by dissolving basic minerals such as calcium carbonate into water. Backwashing neutralizers can be used to treat water with a pH of 5.5 and higher (in most applications).

Benefits of a Neutralizer

  • Neutralizes acid to protect pipes, faucets, water heaters, boilers, etc. from corrosion
  • Eliminate blue/green staining associated with a low pH
