Combines the functions of a acid neutralizer (eliminates acidity to avoid piping corrosion) with a tannin filter removes Humic and Fulvic acids (large molecular weight organics which impart a brown/yellow tint to water and strange flavours and odours).
Acidic water (low pH) causes pin hole leaks and corrosion, and damages household plumbing systems, leaving blue/green stains on your plumbing fixtures. Our Neutralizing filter bed can eliminate corrosion of copper and galvanized pipe and fittings, plumbing fixtures and appliances while simultaneously stopping pin hole leaks and preventing staining.
Tannins are formed upon the decomposition of vegetation in lakes, water wells, rivers and from acid rain. Tannins have large molecular weight organics and fall under two categories, Humic and Fulvic acids.
