PH FIlters

PH problems in well water is typically when the water has a low PH and is considered acidic. Water with a PH level lower than 7.0 is considered to be acidic. Typically when your water is acidic you will notice a metallic taste in the water and green or blue staining in the sink. The staining is most often caused by the water eating away at your copper plumbing. This can lead to an expensive problem over the years in your homes plumbing. The PH of water is easily treated.

To correct low PH we typically use what is called a calcite or acid neutralizer filter. By adding calcite we can raise the water to a neutral PH of 7.0 to 7.2. Calcite filters can also be used for filtration with the addition of a backwashing head. Maintenance on these filters are very minimal. On average about once a year new calcite should be added to the vessel. To make this easy we install a vessel with a dome hole for easy filling.

If you are concerned about the PH of your water give us a call anytime as we provide free on-site testing.
