pH correction

When rain falls the water has a naturally aggressive, slightly acidic nature. This water then dissolves chalk and other minerals in the ground that can raise the pH of the water neutralising it. If this neutralisation does not occur or if other contaminants are dissolved the result is acidic water.

Acidic water results in corrosion of copper pipe work, heating cylinders and equipment leading to pinprick corrosion and holes.

A pH value below 7 is considered to be acidic, and corrosion accelerates at pH levels below 6.5, with levels below 6.0 considered to be extremely aggressive.

There are a number of different pH correction medias available; the first step is to have the water tested and then from the results we will be able to advise and design a suitable treatment system.
