I have a question. I have iron in my well water, but my water is also on the acid side (somewhere between 6 and 6.5 I think). This is out at our lake house, and we only used it on some weekends and sometimes more in the summer.
I was recommended by our local Culligan company to use a calcite neutralizer followed by their iron filter. Is there one tank or one system that can do both? The home has 2 bathrooms, but it's usually just me and my wife there.
If you used a lot of water and lived there full time, we might recommend a separate neutralizer and iron filter, but you can save money and space by using the Pro-OX blend iron filter.
There are two types of Pro-OX Air systems, the Pro-OX AIR standard system, and the Pro-OX AIR blend which not only removes iron and odors but also eliminates acid water conditions as well.
Iron oxidizes (turns into a solid particle) best and most rapidly at a pH range of 7.0 to 8.0. A low pH (less than 7) keeps the iron in solution.
Low pH water usually has clear water iron. Aeration helps raise pH because the reason for low pH is typically dissolved carbon dioxide.
The Pro-OX-Air blend iron filters:
- Works down to pH 6 (If you have less than 6, you are better off getting a separate standalone neutralizer)
- pH Blend Pro-OX Filter
- Includes 2/3rds Pro-OX 1/3rd Calcite
- Easy to add additional Calcite
- Add 1 -3 times a year depending on usage
- Translucent tank – easy to see level of filter media.
