of mineral cartridges are designed to raise the pH
of influent waters. These
cartridges contain sparingly soluble sacrificial medias that are
only acted upon by acidic
waters. They will have little effect on neutral or alkaline water.
They are flow rate dependent.
More acid neutralization can take place when the flow rate is
If you are concerned about over correction you should choose the Calcite filter.
It is the only acid neutralizing cartridge without overcorrection tendencies.
It is more inclined to bring acid water to a 7 pH and not above
If your source water is very acidic and has a really low pH then you
should use the Magnesium Mineral filter. The Magnesium Mineral
neutralize an acidity as low as pH 1.0. Higher pH feeds can utilize higher
flow rates. As you
approach ph 7 with low flow rates, the
filter may tend to
over-correct, resulting in a pH
