If you have a low PH,
also known as acidic water, an acid neutralizer will need to be installed.
The system consists of a mineral tank with media inside, and a control
The mineral tank is filled with a layer of gravel on the bottom and a
layer of neutralizer (usually crushed marble) on top. The neutralizer
actually dissolves itself into the water, raising the PH. Because it is

We recommend checking the level once a year.
An acid neutralizer also has some physical filtering capabilities. Impurities
