Private Water Supply - pH Correction
Water from a private water supply is often acidic (less than pH 7) which means it causes pin-holing of copper pipe and hot water cylinders which frequently leads to copper leaching into the water causing discolouration (blue tinge / staining) of sanitary ware and blonde coloured hair.
Problems relating to low pH are easily resolved by installing a pH corrector. A pH corrector is a cost effective method of treating the water and works by slightly increasing the calcium and magnesium content of the water, however it does not alter the water's natural taste or take away healthy minerals.
This type of filter does not incorporate a back wash facility and the water passes down through the filters internal riser tube and comes up through the media, passing out of the filter head and into the system.
In order for us to be able to offer a guaranteed result we will require a water analysis, details of application and pipe sizes and/or flow rates.
