Description of Calcite Media
Calcite is a naturally occurring calcium carbonate media. One of the advantages of
Calcite is its self-
It does not overcorrect under normal conditions. Upon contact with Calcite, acidic waters slowly dissolve the calcium carbonate to raise the pH which reduces the potential leaching of copper, lead and other metals found in typical plumbing systems. Periodic backwashing will prevent packing, reclassify the bed and maintain high service rates. Depending on pH, water chemistry and service flow, the media bed will have to be periodically replenished as the the media is depleted.
As the Calcite's calcium carbonate neutralizes the water, it will increase hardness and a softener may become necessary after the neutralizing filter.
Calcite can be effectively combined with Clack Calcite to combine the high flow neutralization properties of the media, along with the slower reacting low flow properties of the media, increasing the ability to correct low pH.
