Mid Atlantic Water uses Vortech™ Tanks.


Why Vortech™?
Vortech™ distribution systems utilize a more efficient distributor plate design to reduce water usage and improve system efficiency compared to traditional cone & gravel systems. This unique design when used as an upflow acid neutralizer eliminates channeling of the media bed and provides greater contact time with the calcite media.  In addition, because Vortech™ does not utilize gravel, it costs less to ship due to its lighter weight.

Our 10X54 Non-Backwashing Acid Neutralizer is designed to raise your PH using food grade calcium, called calcite or PH Neutralizer As water passes through the unit, it dissolves the calcite and becomes neutral eliminating corrosion of your plumbing and water using appliances. As with any Acid Neutralizer you will need to service this system every 6 – 12 months depending upon your water usage and PH level. You can purchase the media at your local plumbing supply house. Best of all is the price, our system comes to you ready for installation for only $695.00 (regular price) with FREE SHIPPING.

How A Non-Backwashing Acid Neutralizer Works. As water enters through the valve, it flows down the water distribution tube, it is then evenly dispersed through a distribution basket at the bottom of the distribution tube, and then flows upward through the media bed, to the main household supply line This allows your household water supply maximum contact time with the neutralizing media, and eliminates channeling of the media bed as well as raising the PH in your household water supply to an acceptable level. Benefits of A Non-Backwashing Acid Neutralizer Threaded PVC connectors make installation easy No Backwash, which conserves water, and extends the life of your well pump, great for low yielding wells.
