Activated Carbon Neutralizers
The AACN Activated Carbon Neutralizer has been specifically designed to treat chlorinated, low pH, surface water in residential applications. It is a Point of Entry (POE) system capable of treating all the water for a home. For example, the major problems with Vancouver City water are: high levels of sediment, low pH ( acidic), and high levels of chlorine. The AACN systems address these problems producing excellent quality clean healthy water for use in the entire home.
The Process: The AACN Activated Carbon Neutralizer is an automatic backwashing tank type carbon filter with a post sediment filter. Water entering the Carbon Neutralizer runs down through a bed of granular activated carbon mixed with a neutralizing media. Filtered water from the bottom of the media bed is collected and runs up a central distributor tube, out of the Carbon Neutralizer. The carbon neutralizer is automatically backwashed on a set schedule by the filter control valve. Backwashing cleans the carbon bed of collected sediment and particulate matter and also lifts and rearranges the bed for optimum filtration.
Neutralization: Low pH, which is typical for Vancouver City water and many other cities, is corrosive to copper plumbing and plumbing fixtures. The neutralizing media added to the Activated Carbon Filter raises the pH of the treated water and drastically reduces its corrosive tendencies. This translates into big savings for maintenance and repair of plumbing systems and will prevent green staining of showers, tubs, and basins.
