Uses an all-natural, mineral based media to raise the pH of acidic water.
What you should know about Acidic Water
Acidic water will cause metal plumbing to leach and wear thin, causing blue stains, pinhole leaks, and potentially even illness.
Acidic water is defined as having a pH below a neutral of 7, and can be very damaging to the home. Acidic water will actually corrode pipes, removing the copper and leeching it into your home’s water supply. Oxidized copper deposits will then leave a greenish-blue staining in sinks and toilets, and on shower walls. When the copper in your home’s pipes wears thin enough, pinhole leaks will develop and require repair. The combination of heat and acidic water will cause even more damage, causing water heaters to fail prematurely. If acidic water is left untreated, the entire plumbing system in a home will have to be replaced at significant expense.

- Pipes and plumbing will develop pinhole leaks
- Water heaters and other appliances will corrode and need to be replaced
