Re: Rainsoft acid neutralizer
I moved into a house on well water and with a Rainsoft system for both neutralizing acidic water and softening the water.
There's got to be a way to avoid the $200 annual visit. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
Magnesium oxide is a fast acting (read it dissolves quickly) acid neutralizing mineral used with calcite or Georgia Marble which can be used alone or with MO in a mixed bed AN filter; MO is never used alone.
You need to find out what your raw water pH is, and then the size of your AN filter tank. Then I can tell you how much mineral it holds and if you need mixed bed mineral or not.
If your filter backwashes properly, there is no need to empty the tank and replace all the unused mineral, unless you have a mixed bed and then you would use the old to mix in new with. If the mineral has not been backwashed properly, then you would throw it out.
