Check If Your Acid Neutralizer Is Low
If you’re noticing discolored stains in your tub, shower, or sinks, or if your water has an unusual taste, it’s best to check if your acid neutralizer is low.
How to check if your acid neutralizer is low
Shine a bright flashlight up against the side of your acid neutralizer tank. Move the light up and down. You should be able to see where the media level is inside the tank. If the media level is below 14 inches from the top of the tank, your media needs a top-up.
What To Do If Your Acid Neutralizer Is Low
On average, most households need to refill their acid neutralizer media every 12 to 18 months. You want your media level to read between 7 and 8. If your acid neutralizer is low (below 6.8), you’ll simply need to refill it to get your home’s water back on track.
If you’re still experiencing issues with your water after refilling the media, consider hiring a plumber to inspect the problem.
