A significant proportion of the waters of South Africa and Lesotho are soft and acidic with characteristically low calcium, Alkalinity and carbonate species concentration.
Distribution of such waters results in aggressive attack of cement concrete pipes and linings, and corrosive attack of metal pipes, valves, etc. within the distribution network.
The impact of such attack is usually significant, and usually includes the loss of water, the need for expensive repairs and deterioration in drinking-water quality.
Aquastab is media used to raise the PH of the water so that the water is more ballanced and is safe to use with plumbing.
