Calcite pH Correction Filtration Media 50lb
£23.00 excl. VAT
Acidic waters on contact with Calcite slowly dissolve the calcium carbonate media to raise the pH which reduces the potential leaching of copper, lead and other metals found in typical plumbing systems. Periodic backwashing will prevent packing and maintain high service rates. Depending on pH and service flow, the Calcite bed will have to be periodically added to as the dissolved calcite de pletes. As the Calcite€™s calcium carbonate neutralizes the water, it will increase hardness and a softener may become necessary after the neutralizing filter.
High uniformity coefficient for maximum contact for controlled pH correction
