3.4: Calcite & Corosex Cartridges
Calcite media (Calcium Carbonate aka crushed white marble) slowly dissolves in acidic water as it passes through the media. This increases the pH and Alkalinity of the water; which helps prevent corrosion of pipes and fixtures.
Corosex media (Magnesium Oxide) dissolves in acidic water as it passes through the media. This increases the pH and Alkalinity of water; which helps prevent corrosion of pipes and fixtures.
To cover a wider range of acidic water, and to cater to varying flow rates, it is recommended to mix Calcite media and Corosex media.
