Fine Size No: 1 Calcite replaces the Dolomitic XO White limestone.
Calcite is a naturally occurring calcium carbonate media.
One of the advantages of Calcite is its self-limiting property. When properly applied, it corrects pH only enough to reach a non-corrosive equilibrium. It does not over correct 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.
Periodic back washing will prevent packing, reclassify the bed and maintain high service rates.
Depending on pH, water chemistry and service flow, the Calcite will have to be replenished as the Calcite is depleted.
