Backstory: I'm getting blue stains in my tub so after some research... My well water has a pH of 5.74. So, before any further damage is done, I'm installing an acid neutralizer.
1) Why do these need to be backflushed? I have a whole house particulate pre-filter that will be installed before the neutralizer and I thought the media is sacrificial.
2) 5.74 is pretty low. I've read about people complaining about acidic water at pH6.5. Should I get a larger than usual neutralizer? Or use different media?
3) What is the order in which I should install these? Pre-filter -> neutralizer -> surge tank.
