How Do I Add Calcite To An Acid Neutralizer Filter?

Dear sir,

I have an old calcite neutralizer. It used to work, but no longer. Our water has turned acidic again, and we have the same blue stains coming back, we used to see before we put in the neutralizer. I see a black plug or fitting on the top of the tank, do I unscrew that?

How do I add more calcite to it? Thanks for any help you can provide.



Check pH before and after neutralizer periodically. A pH of less than 7.0 pH is acidic and a range of 7.2 to 8.0 is best for preventing corrosion of pipe and fixtures.

Once or twice a year, depending on pH levels add more calcite media to the neutralizer filter as follows: see this guide
