Calcite is a naturally occurring calcium carbonate Material.. When properly applied, it corrects pH to a neural range. It does not overcorrect under normal conditions.
• Naturally occurring material
• Low uniformity coefficient for maximum contact for controlled pH correction
• Slower reacting for controlled pH correction
Calcite is a naturally occurring calcium carbonate Material.. When properly applied, it corrects pH to a neural range. 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. Depending on pH, water chemistry and service flow, the Calcite will have to be periodically replenished as the Calcite is depleted.
As the Calcite’s calcium carbonate neutralizes the water, it will increase hardness. This calcite is what is used in the systems PSI 021-5RM and PSI 021-5RM-HA. It can be used in any type of refillable cartridge.
