Condensate neutralizers are amazing tools that can protect your plumbing and drainage systems. But not every commercial operation or home requires one. How do you know if you need a condensate neutralizer, and where should you go to purchase one? In this blog, we’ll answer those questions.
Do I need a condensate neutralizer?
To determine if you need a condensate neutralizer, you must first figure out what kind of appliance your boiler, water heater or furnace is. When you look at the user manual, try to find information regarding operation. Any gas-fired condensing appliance requires a condensate neutralizer. This is because gas-powered appliances produce low-pH wastewater. If you allow this water to drain into your pipes or local wastewater system, you run the risk of serious damage to your equipment as well as wastewater violations.
I have a high-efficiency gas-powered appliance. Do I still need to worry?
High-efficiency gas-powered appliances feature a drain-line connection for a condensate neutralizer. For maximum performance, the neutralizer should be installed between the appliance and the drain, before the condensate pump. If your new appliance didn’t come with a condensate neutralizer, make sure to order and install one before firing it up. Moving too quickly may lead to significant damage or operating complications later on.
