The 3M™ Whole House Water Treatment Media N-050P is a blended filter media used in Residential and Commercial applications used to neutralize highly acidic or low pH water to a neutral, less corrosive effluent level. N-050P is a calcium carbonate and magnesium oxide blended filter media.
Your Acid Answer
The 3M™ Whole House Water Treatment Media N-050P is a specific blend of calcium carbonate and magnesium oxide that corrects highly acidic water. Highly acidic water, or water with a pH rating of less than 7, is highly corrosive to piping and plumbing fixtures. With pH corrected water, you can prevent the potential of leaching of copper, lead and other metals found in typical plumbing systems.
When used in a 3M water treatment system, such as a backwash filter, the periodic backwashing will help prevent packing of the media bed, as well as maintain high service levels of the media. The N-050P neutralization media will need to be replenished periodically as it is depleted. This replenishment rate depends upon many factors including pH levels, backwash frequency and filter system capacity. We recommend a gravel under-bed to support the N-050P filter media. Signs of acidic water are corrosion of fixtures, blue staining (from copper pipes) or rust staining (from iron pipes). Acidic water can also cause pinhole leaks and pipe failure over time. It may also cause aesthetic issues, such as metallic taste to the water or water based drinks.
