blog_detailsAcid Water can't see it can't smell it so how do you know you have it. One common clue is blue green stains in your tub or shower for those homes that have copper plumbing another symptom is leaking fixtures pin hole leaks in plumbing and water using appliances leaking hot water heater bitter metallic tasting water running toilets etc so what do you do. First thing you need to do is get your well water tested you can get a home test kit from Lowes or Home Depot or you can call a local water testing lab in your area. Once you find out what your PH level is you need to to purchase the correctly sized Acid Neutralizer. This will be based upon PH level number of people living in your home children included and any outside water usage and increased water usage in the future such as a growing family. Example if you have a PH level of 5.5 and 5 people living in the home you would purchase a 13x54 Size Acid Neutralizer which is a 2.5 cubic foot capacity system then decide do I need backwashing or non backwashing. For the most part the non backwashing system is the way to go it's extremely efficient it does not waste water it has no moving or metal parts it requires no electric or backwash drain and it is very simple to install. Here in Maryland the only time we use the Backwashing system is when the well water contains iron or heavy sediment which can clog the calcite bed over time. I hope this helps you in selecting the proper Acid Neutralizer for your Home. If you have any questions please feel free to call me at 888 299 7479 I'm available 7 days a week from 8am - to 8pm.
