Acidic water not only may corrode your copper pipes, but low pH water is also hazardous to your health when corrosion from acidic water leaches lead into your drinking water!
Safety Zone acid neutralizers utilize a Calcite® to neutralize the free carbon dioxide in water, rendering it less corrosive.
Calcite has “self-limiting” properties. When properly applied, it corrects pH only enough to reach a non-corrosive equilibrium. It does not overcorrect under normal conditions. Upon contact with Calcite, acidic waters slowly dissolve the calcium carbonate 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, reclassify the bed and maintain high service rates.
