Question

Acid Neutralizer media


Hi all, My well acid neutralizer tank has stopped working. It was installed five years ago. The top has two PVC 1" pipes going into it. If I cut those pipes is the top unscrewable so I can add media, or do I need t opurchase a new tank? There is no other plug on the tank and no identifying marks exepy for a written word "upflow" and an arrow on the top of the tank.

Bummer that the installer did not put some kind of union that one can undo to make it easier to remove the head on the tank so that more media can be added..
But yes you will need to get some 1" slip unions and cut the current pipes and install the unions and unscrew the head , plug the distributor and fill the tank to with in 17" with the calcite media.
