pH Adjustment

Calcite

For increasing the pH of acidic water. Calcite dissolves as acidic water passes through and must be replaced as it dissolves. Unless it is used in an upflow filter, it must be backwashed.

$73.00
Part # fm002

Corosex / FloMag

Corosex / FloMag
Corosex / FloMag
Like Calcite, Corosex (granular magnesium oxide — also marketed as FloMag) is used to raise the pH of acidic waters. It supports higher flow rates and gives a greater increase in pH, but it tends to “cement” in hard water and when it is mixed at a ratio higher than 50% with calcite.

Sediment Filtration

ChemSorb / Micro-Z

Chemsorb / Micro-Z
Chemsorb / Micro-Z
ChemSorb (granular zeolite — also marketed as Micro-Z) is an excellent sediment filtration medium that backwashes much more easily than multimedia (sand, anthracite, etc) sediment filters. Filters down to less than 5 microns.
