How do I know when it is time to replace the media in a Z9A-PHIX Cartridge?

  • The best way to determine media replacement is to measure the pH level downstream of the Z9A-PHIX Cartridge. If the pH range falls outside of pH 6.0 to 10.0 it is time to replace the media.  Zurn also supplies continuous monitoring pH meters that can be installed downstream of the Cartridge to provide a continuous readout to the user. Contact a Zurn Customer Care Representative or visit www.zurn.com for additional information.​
