The primary role of a neutralizer system is to raise the pH of water. If your water is too acidic, a neutralizer can bring the water’s pH to a more neutral level.
Acidic water can be a real problem for your home’s plumbing. It may cause corrosion of metal pipes, blue-green staining, dry hair and skin, and the leaching of metals (lead) into your water. The most common material to neutralize water is calcite. For very acidic water, a chemical feed system may be a better option. By neutralizing water, plumbing and related problems can be avoided.
