mineral cartridges are designed to raise the pH
of influent waters. These
cartridges contain sparingly soluble sacrificial medias that are
only acted upon by acidic
waters. They will have little effect on neutral or alkaline water.
In other words this filter is designed to neutralize acidic water.
They are flow rate dependent. At flow rates
of 0.1 gpm, this Magnesium filter will
neutralize an acidity as low as pH 1.0. Higher pH feeds can utilize higher
flow rates. As you
approach ph 7 with low flow rates, the
may tend to
over-correct, resulting in a pH
above 8.5. If you are concerned about over correction you should
choose the Calcite Mineral filter. T
