Many borehole water or spring supplies have a pH of less than 7; such waters are considered to be acidic and potentially damaging causing staining and corrosion.
Treatment, by means of a pH correction filter, involves the use of a neutralising media, generally composed of crushed and processed limestone. This media dissolves into the water as it passes through the filter and the natural alkalinity of the filter media raises the pH.
Juraperle is a granular media made up of 99.4% calcium carbonate. The product dissolves very slowly, is free from soluble constituents, has a low silica content and thanks to it’s micro-crystalline structure, offers superior performance to limestone.
Juraperle is a reactive media and during its use it is gradually dissolved by the water being treated and will therefore require periodic replacement.
