Acid treatment

Acid treatment has two purposes with two different administration methods:

  • avoid the build-up of limescale (calcium carbonate) – slight continuous acidification throughout the irrigation season, with the objective of maintaining a water pH of 6.0–6.5

  • dissolve mineral sediment that has already settled inside the drip laterals – periodic injections that bring the pH of the water to a lower pH for a short period of time, followed by flushing.
