I would like to install a acid neutralizer.
I have read the posts here about backflushing vers non-backflushing systems. I understand that backflushing would probally be the better choice.
Having said that, I am leaning toward a non backflushing. Installing a drain will cause my daughter asthma problems due to the chemicals in the sheetrocking mud and the dust from sanding.
My questiions are:
1) Can I buy a non backflushing unit and the convert later to a backflushing unit?
2) I am on a well (being dug as we sppeak). I expect that the largest unit I could backflush would be 1.5 cubic feet. My house has three baths and three people. The current ph is between 6-6.5. When I get the test results back I will know more. Will this unit be adequate.
3) I know that these unit add hardness. How much? At what point do I need to consider adding a water softner?
