Calcite is a naturally- occurring calcium carbonate media. Calcite filters are use to neutralize low pH and acidity in your water supply.
Acidic water – water that has a pH level of less than 7 can eat away at copper pipes and leave your faucets and plumbing fixtures with blue-green stains. The normal pH level for surface water is 6.5 to 8.5, so if your water has a lower level it could be corrosive. One effective way of raising the pH is to add calcite to the water.
High pH causes a bitter taste, water pipes and water-using appliances become encrusted with deposits and it depresses the effectiveness of the disinfection of chlorine thereby causing the need for additional chlorine when pH is high.
Benefits of Calcite Filters:
Raises pH of water to a non-corrosive equilibrium
Reduces leaching of metal plumbing components and copper piping
High flow rate, low pressure drop
Re-mineralizes low mineral soft water
