It is also possible that you’ll see such colored staining in your porcelain sink, or that your water flow or pressure is low. If you notice any of these warning signs, contact us immediately. We will test your water to determine if it’s acidic and discuss the benefits of installing an acid neutralizer to protect your plumbing lines and fixtures.

How an Acid Neutralizer Works

Acid Neutralizer

The acid neutralizer is a very effective and affordable way to raise your pH balance to the appropriate level. It is far more economical to invest in such a system now than in new pipes a few years down the road due to corrosion and other issues that acidic water causes. Just remember that only a trained professional can ensure that your acid neutralizer is the right fit for your needs.

An acid neutralizer uses a mineral, typically calcite or calcite mixed with magnesium oxide, to neutralize water. As acidic water enters the head of the mineral tank, the minerals are dissolved. This boosts the pH level to where it ought to be. The operation is quite simple, but it is necessary that this equipment is integrated into your plumbing system successfully and that any additional filtration methods are paired with it for maximum water quality. To ensure that you have the right acid neutralizer installed in your home, call the professionals on the Tim Beil Plumbing team.
