for Well Water >> Neutralizers
>> Upflow Neutralizers
use similar filter media as our standard
neutralizer filters, but instead of a downward flow of water,
as with our acid neutralizers, the water flows up through the filter
media. These systems are not backwashed, and the media does not filter
sediment. Our acid neutralizers also act as filters, removing sediment
and oxidized iron particles. By periodically backwashing the filters,
the sediment is discharged to drain. Backwashing also serves to clean
and to re-classify the filter media. If you really want an upflow
filter, we can supply you with the materials to put your own one together.
In some cases, if the water is very clean, and there is no power available,
we do recommend upflow neutralizers, but in most cases the automatic
acid neutralizing filters work much and are much less trouble than
an upflow neutralizer, in our experience.
Please contact us for pricing and information on custom up-flow neutralizers
if you require this type of system.
