3 Cubic Foot Acid Neutalizer
3 Cubic Foot Acid Neutalizer
MTBE (methyl tertiary butyl ether) is a potentially cancerous oxygenating chemical that was used to raise the octane level in gasoline to prevent your car from "knocking” starting in 1979. Although is use is declining, old buried gas station storage tanks are now mostly to blame for contaminating the groundwater in the State of Maryland.

This customer came to us about their acid water problem and reports of MTBE contamination in the area. We recommended our standard EcoSoft Water Treatment Systems 2.5 cubic foot acid neutralizer with whole house Big Blue GAC (carbon) postfilter to remove MTBE and other organics. The postfilter can easily be changed by the homeowner with store bought carbon filters purchased from Lowe’s, The Home Depot, or various other plumbing suppliers making this versatile system a great choice for both of these well water problems. This customer has water that is now safe to drink – and doesn’t eat their copper pipes or faucets. Installed in Monrovia, MD 21770.
