A Calcite Water Neutralizer Can Treat Acid Waters From pH 5.0 up to pH 6.9. A calcite water neutralizer will work best for treating acid well water if the pH of the water is between 5 and 6.9. Over 6.9 no neutralizer is needed. For pH levels below 5.0, we generally recommend a chemical feed […] Click Here to Continue Reading This Post
Your toilet tank will tell you if your water has iron, rust or sediment in it. If you have copper piping, it means that your copper piping is likely not being corroded. You might still have hard water (high in calcium carbonate minerals) but generally, a clean white flush tank is good and what you want to see. Click Here to Continue Reading This Post
Copper corrosion in home plumbing systems is a common phenomenon, which can have many causes.
Besides actual piping failure, the telltale blue stains the oxidized copper leaves on sinks, tubs, and fixtures can identify copper corrosion.
Often laundry and even blonde hair can be tinted blue. Copper can be toxic, and water-containing levels over 1.0 mg/L should not be used for drinking.
If there are iron pipes present, the water can be colored rust or reddish and contain metallic or sulfur odors and sediment. Corrosion can cause the piping to fail, in some cases in less than 10 years. Learn how to deal with copper contamination. Click Here to Continue Reading This Post
Well drilling and work on well pumps can introduce bacteria into the well. Iron bacteria thrive in water containing high levels of iron, and can accumulate in appliances and plumbing to create sludge, biofilm, and foul odors in water. Chlorine, ozone, or peroxide can kill bacteria and inhibit its recurrence when continually injected into water supplies, […] Click Here to Continue Reading This Post
Hi, I am trying to figure out what combination of products I would need to fix the water coming of my parent’s well. They recently asked me to test the water since it had eaten through the well pump and was leaving blue lines in one of the bathtubs. Here are the problems: a lot […] Click Here to Continue Reading This Post
