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.
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.

Great product and better service
Product works, pretty easy install and reduces acid from well water. Little shipping snafu but mid Atlantic water made it right!
Aiden answered all my questions and I had a ton Good experience
Easy installation!Great Service!
Shipping was fast! Installation was easy with a little know how and a plan. Thank you to Aiden! Who was quick to respond when I was missing one bag of calcite with my order. With a few questions about the condition of the pallet , the manufacturer shipped me the missing bag super fast! It is very refreshing to deal with a company like Mid Atlantic water when you find out they care about customer service.
not much difference
After 3 weeks, my PH went from 6.3 to 6.8... Pretty disappointing
Excellent product & service
Excellent. The brief videos by Mid Atlantic were very useful, and I would love to see a couple more issues covered, even if briefly.
Saving the Water Heater
Simple install. A home owner with some plumbing knowledge and tools would be able to install. Recommend using push on type fittings for easier installation to existing plumbing. Good customer service.
Upflow acid neutralizer
Very easy to set up once I figured what fittings I needed.
Fixed my pressure issue
I was looking for a solution to the extreme pressure reduction caused by my old neutralizer. The Vortech neutralizer really worked. My pressure is what it was when bypassing the old neutralizer. Since my raw water was 6.8 ph an effective treatment was a must. Overall, very happy with the results.
