Crystal Quest Acid Neutralizing Whole House Water Filters
Neutralize Acid in Your Drinking Water
Our Whole House Acid Neutralizing Water Filters contain naturally occurring, crushed and screened white marble, calcium carbonate media. It is used to neutralize acidic or low pH waters to a neutral, less corrosive effluent.The media slowly dissolves over time and will need to be refilled about every 2-3 years, depending on the amount of water you use, and the pH of your raw water entering the unit. When acid pH water (below 6.8) is passed through the filter, calcium carbonate neutralizer is slowly dissolved into the water, increasing the pH to a neutral level. An automatic backwashing cleans the bed and prevents compaction.
- This system is designed solely for neutralizing acidic water. If you would like clear, filtered water & a balanced pH in addition to your acid-neutralizing system, configure your system with a SMART filter.
- Media may increase hardness in the water after it is neutralized. If you would like softened and filtered, balanced pH water in addition to this system, configure your system with a Water Softener.
Water flows through a 20” sediment cartridge that removes sediment, silt, sand, and dirt.Post-filtration
Water flows through a 20" solid carbon cartridge for removing volatile organic carbon compounds (VOC's), & any remaining insecticides, pesticides and industrial solvents.
Acid Neutralizing Water Filter
Water flows through an Acid Neutralizing water filtration media/mineral tank with small amounts of our ERA® 6500 & 9500 added to help prevent bacteria growth.
SMART Water Filter (optional)
Water flows through our SMART Multimedia, which includes 2 types of coconut shell Granulated Activated Carbons (Standard & Catalytic GAC) infused with our Eagle Redox Alloys® 6500 & 9500, and ion exchange resin to reduce contaminants such as heavy metals, i.e. lead & mercury, chlorine, chloramine, & inorganic products such as herbicides, pesticides, petroleum/pharmaceutical by-products and achieve a balanced pH.
Water Softener (optional)
Water flows through an ion exchange resin and brine water conditioner.
Media may increase hardness in the water which is why a water softener is recommended. Water is hard when it contains minerals like calcium and magnesium. You may see staining on your sinks, tubs, showers, and clothing. You may also notice less lather from your shampoos and soaps and even a feeling of film on your skin. All these are symptoms of the need for softened water. Hard water also causes a higher risk of limescale deposits in household water systems. The negative effect of limescale buildup is that pipes are blocked and the efficiency of hot boilers and tanks is reduced. This increases the cost of domestic water heating by about fifteen to twenty percent. Another negative effect of limescale is that it has damaging effects on household machinery, such as laundry machines. Water softening means expanding the lifespan of household machines, and the lifespan of pipelines. It also contributes to the improved working and longer lifespan of solar heating systems, air conditioning units and many other water-based applications.
