About the Clack 1.5 Cubic Foot Upflow Acid Neutralizer Vortech Tank & Calcite


The non backwashing (or upflow) acid neutralizer does not require a drain line or electricity. It can easily be installed anywhere.

We recommend installing the unit in the upflow mode. That means as you use water, it travels down the center distributor tube and up through the media bed, just as if it were being backwashed. The upward motion of water through the media bed eliminates channeling and solidification of the calcite media, while at the same time does not waste any water like a backwashing system.

Backwashing systems on average discharge 100-150 gallons during the backwash cycle - which typically goes into your septic system. The upflow system is the most effective, efficient and safest way to raise your PH level in your household water supply.

Along with the Non-Backwashing Clack 1.5 Cubic Foot (10x54) Vortech Tank Acid Neutralizer, a fill funnel, a service funnel, and three (3) bags of calcite media. The 1.5 cubic foot acid neutralizer tank dimensions are 54" tall (58" with control valve) and 10" in diameter.

The Clack C1190 control valve is non-backwashing, meaning it doesn't require any electricity or a drain line. It also comes with a built-in bypass with single ball valves that lets you control the flow coming into the unit and going out of the neutralizer. Also, it has 1" threaded male adapter connections that rotate 365 degrees, which makes installation much easier.

Why Vortech?

Vortech distribution systems utilize a more efficient distributor plate design to reduce water usage and improve system efficiency compared to traditional cone and gravel systems. This unique design when used as an upflow acid neutralizer eliminates channeling, eliminates solidification and allows greater contact time with the calcite media bed.

The vortech tank has a molded platform at the bottom which is capable of supporting up to 6500 lbs. The platform has tiny slits cut into it which allows water to pass through at a high flow rate and in a circular direction which eliminates channeling of the media bed. You do not have to worry about using gravel to bed the system like traditional acid neutralizer gravel bedded tanks.

Upflow Clark 1.5 vortex tank and calcite

The only complaint was the time it took getting the tank and calcite. It was easy to install and it works great.

Life saver

I was able to top off the calcite a lot easier with this funnel. I was able to do this by myself this time. A little pricey but buy it once and should have it forever. Good quality!!

Too alkaline!

After over a week my water is still way to alkaline (10) after being way too acidic (5) prior to install.

Works well

Compared to neighbors with similar well water, calcite is more reliable on holding the Ph around 7 for longer than other products. It might give you pain having white residue on your cookware or appliances, but in my opinion it well worth having that trouble over drinking and showering in acid water.

Clack 2.5

Took a while to get it, but it was well worth the wait. Ph went from 5.5 to 7.0 I would highly recommend this neutralizer

DOES EXACTLY WHAT IT'S SUPPOSED TO DO!

Easy,bullet-proof installation. No moving parts and it does exactly what it's supposed to do. The hardest part is getting the Calcite into the tank. Raised my PH from 6.8 to a perfect 7.6! I had also previously installed the same item in my daughter's water system. Her PH was 5.2. Following Aiden's recommendation I added 2 lbs. of Flo-Mag for every bag of Calcite. The PH went to 7.8 and then leveled out to a perfect 7.4. With both systems it was installed between a backwashing iron filter using Katalox Lite media and a 40,000 grain water softener. Tech support via text message was fast and courteous. I definitely recommend this product.

Heavy Duty Funnel

I haven't had to use it yet because the acid neutralizer doesn't need service but I bought it to have on hand when my daughter's and my own do need to be serviced. The funnel is pricey but it's the right tool for the job. It much more ruggedly made than I thought it would be. Really thick plastic and should last a lifetime.

Easy set up and installation

I installed this to resolve a low PH issue in my home. PH was around 5.4, and it was doing some interesting things to my daughters hair. It took around 2 months to get the unit once it was ordered. It came via lift gate truck on a pallet. The delivery was great, and the unit was complete with no damages or issues. The tank is a fairly simple fiberglass tank and once you fill it with neutralizer and water it isn't going anywhere. I watched the videos from Mid Atlantic, and they were very clear and complete. Hook up was simple. Although the unit comes with bypass valves, I would also recommend installing shut off valves on the input and output to simplify things when you need to refill or if there are other issues.

Superior Calcite

I have a vortex tank and other brands would flush out of the system during the backwash cycle. This calcite is more dense and stays in the tank.
