Low pH or “acid water” can mean big problems for your plumbing pipes and fixtures. The corrosive action of this type of water on your pipes is evident by the telltale bluish- green stains on your sinks or tubs (rust colored stains if you have galvanized iron pipes) These stains are evidence that your water is slowly dissolving the metal in your plumbing pipes.
If this condition is allowed to continue, over time leaks in your plumbing system could develop. If the condition persists over extended periods of time, the pipes will become so thin that they may all have to be replaced.
If you have copper water pipes in your home, this acid water not only will corrode your pipes, but in the process will add copper to your drinking water.
Excess copper in your drinking water can be a health risk.
All water is naturally acidic and corrosive when it falls to the ground as rain. As it works its way down through the earth to the aquifer where it is drawn up by wells, it usually passes over limestone type rocks which absorb the acid out of the water. If the rain water does not encounter any limestone it remains acidic all the way into your house. This filter supplies the limestone that nature avoided. It naturally absorbs the acid and corrosiveness out of your water without the use of chemicals.
This filter needs only minor maintenance. Every 6 to 9 months (depending on water use) the media level in the tank is brought up to its original level. A convenient fill hole in the tank makes this maintenance and easy chore.
