Designed to increase the pH of acidic water
pH level 6.0 to 6.8 @ 5 gpm
pH level 6.0 to 6.8 @ 7 gpm
pH level 5.5 to 6.0 @ 5 gpm
pH level 5.5 to 6.0 @ 7 gpm
Calcite effectively corrects pH enough to reach a non-corrosive equilibrium. It does not overcorrect under normal conditions. When water come into contact with Calcite, acidic water slowly dissolve the calcium carbonate to raise the pH, which reduces the potential leaching of copper, lead, and other metals found in typical plumbing systems. The Calcite bed will have to be periodically replenished as the Calcite is depleted.
Calcite can be effectively combined with FloMag Corosex to combine the high flow neutralization properties of Corosex, along with the slower reacting low flow properties of Calcite, increasing the ability to correct low pH. Use Calcite only for pH levels 6.0 - 6.8. Use Calcite/Corosex for pH levels 5.5 - 6.0.
