Neutralizing Acidic Water in Maryland

Acidic water is something that no one wants to have in their home or commercial location! Acidic water not only tastes terrible, it can increase the chances of lead entering your water.  If you think you may have a problem with the acidity level of your water, we encourage you to call Water Doctor today to speak with one of our trained professionals. It is important to fix water acidity issues as soon as possible to prevent damage to your home’s pipes and your own health.

Where Does Acid Water Come From?

Acidic water is due to acid rain and water which seeps into buried or decayed vegetation. Acid water can deteriorate metal plumbing systems such as lead, iron or coper pipes, brass fixtures, heating elements, and steel water tanks. Acidic water can be harmful to your health, especially if lead is present in your water as well.

Signs of Acidic Water

In order to prevent acid water from making a negative impact in your home, it’s important to look out for signs that your water is becoming more acidic. If you see any of the following signs present in your home, you should contact Water Doctor right away to have a professional come out and assess your water quality:

  • Blue or green stains in your sinks or tubs
  • Deterioration of metal, brass, iron, or copper pipes
  • Rust in the toilet flush tank

Acidic Water Testing in Maryland


Acidity can be easily measured on the pH Scale. On this scale, clean water will score a 7 and any score below a 7 is considered to be acidic. In order to assess the pH level of your home’s water, you can use one of three common methods:

  • Use Litmus Paper – (Typically $1 – $5)
  • Use a pH meter – (Ranges from $5 up to hundreds of dollars)
  • Call a professional – this way you will get instant and certain results

Acid Water Neutralizer Treatment in Anne Arundel, Howard and Baltimore County, MD & Surrounding Areas

If you have acidic water in your home, then Water Doctor has a fast and easy solution for you. Our acidic neutralizer will treat water naturally, using calcium carbonate and magnesium oxide. The contaminated water will be neutralized as it flows through the mechanism and the calcite mineral bed is dissolved. A control valve will also be installed on your tank to backwash the mineral bed periodically to ensure it stays loose and clean.

In order to maintain a neutral acidity level, the minerals in your water tank must be replenished on a regular basis. Water doctor’s experienced technicians are able to perform this service, which will typically take place once or twice a year.

Acidic Neutralizing System Specifics

We offer a complete line of neutralizing systems in various sizes and models to meet each customer’s unique home needs. Our natural mineral neutralizers can be used for pH levels down to 3.5.

One large benefit of this system is that it eliminates homeowner maintenance and has a strong, automatic backwashing control valve. This backwash feature is key because up-flow neutralizers and manual backwash units fail to perform in the long run when the mineral bed is not kept loose and clean.
