Water with a pH below 7 is acidic and corrosive. Raising the pH will neutralise the water, removing the metalic taste and can also reduce any iron or manganese contamination. The simplest way to raise the pH of water is to pass the water through a vessel containing slowly dissolving calcium and magnesium salts. The water can be manual in/out head or through an automatic backwashing filter head. The backwashing head has the advantage of remixing the media and also removing any debris or iron or manganese which may have been oxidised out of solution as the pH increases. Systems listed in this section are for the vessel, media, automatic backwashing filter valve and all fittings.
This pH neutralisation unit is supplied partailly assembled for shipping. Some assembly will be required. All components and instructions will be supplied.
The pH neutralisation unit size is the physical size of the vessel given in inches (eg 10" x 54").
The figure in litres is the volume of the pH neutralising media.
The lph (litres per hour) figure is the maximum flow rate.
