Pro-Soda Ash is a highly alkaline compound which neutralizes the acid found in some water systems. This helps to eliminate corrosion from piping, pressure tanks, water heaters, and fixtures, giving your system longer life. A Pro-Soda Ash solution injected into your water system will neutralize acid water and eliminate corrosion problems. Pro-Soda Ash can also be used to remove tannins from a tannin-type water softener, and may be used in a potable water system.
Neutralizing Acid Water:
The feed rate of Pro-Soda Ash depends on the acidity of water. Proper dosage is reached when the pH of the treated water is between 7.0 and 8.0. Follow procedure for injecting Pro-Soda Ash into your water system by the chemical feed pump manufacturer or supplier.
Cleaning Tannin Water Softeners:
Mix 1 cup of Pro-Soda Ash with 1 qt. of water and pour into salt storage tank on weekly basis.
Features and Benefits
The most satisfactory method of correcting an acidity problem is to automatically feed a soda ash solution into the water. This solution may be fed into the water supply with a chemical feed pump. It chemically combines with the acid water to completely neutralize it.
Tannins are harmless organics resulting from water passing through peaty soil and decaying vegetation. Pro-Soda Ash will rid the mineral bed of tannins by "swelling" the beads which helps the tannins fall off the beads. Also, Pro-Soda Ash increases the pH which will keep the tannins in a more soluble state and help the exchange process.
Pro-Soda Ash is a white granular powder.
