There are 3 types of acid neutralizers:
- Non Back-washing
- Chemical Feed System.
and non back-washing acid neutralizers
both work on the same principle acid water passes through a large vessel and becomes during household water use. The only difference between the two is the back-washing acid neutralizer has a a control valve on top which controls the backwash cycle and also requires electric and a place to run a discharge line for the backwash water which is 70 plus gallons each time it back-washes.
The non back-washing acid neutralizer
has a valve also but it does not use electric nor does it need to backwash and it's much easier to install because no discharge line is required for backwash.
The chemical feed system
is a large trash can type container with a small electric pump on top. the unit is filled with a solution of water and soda ash and when your well pump kicks on it injects the solution into your water supply also you must do maintenance on this unit monthly which entails filling the large tank with water and a soda ash. the mixture must be spot on for it to work properly.
The back-washing and non back-washing acid neutralizers require much less maintenance every 12-18 months but you need to make sure you choose the right size unit. With an acid neutralizer tank you want to choose a unit based on your PH level and the number of people living in your home not how many bathrooms you have you can have 5 bathrooms and only 2 people 2 people aren't going to be using all 5 bathrooms at the same time we know this because we install what we sell while alot of companies are just selling water systems online.
Don't buy a small acid or water softener bigger is always better
We don't recommend and acid neutralizer smaller than 1.5 cubic feet and a water softener no smaller than a 32 000 grain capacity.
