Gold Series 2.5 Cubic Foot Upflow Acid Neutralizer
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 2.5 Cubic Foot Structural media tank, you will receive the Clack C1190 FP valve with bypass and 1' male threaded connections, calcite and fill funnel
The Clack C1190FP 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.

After over a week my water is still way to alkaline (10) after being way too acidic (5) prior to install.
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.
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.
2.0 acid neutralizer
Easy install. The tank was missing the media fillport cap. I sent them a message and one was supposed to ship but I never received it. I was able to repurpose the one off my 15 year old softner. PH is now between 6.8 and 7.2.
Love it Highly recommend
