Default Gas furnace question

I have a high efficiency gas furnace. A result of the combustion process is
a highly acidic water discharge. The water line has a sort of filter
attachment that contains some sort of (presumably alkali) crystal pellets.
1)What is the proper chemical to use to replace them.
2)How often is that necessary.
3)Since the water does not go into the septic system, is it necessary at
all.
Thanks

This is Turtle.

I have install a many of high eff. Furnance in my time and have never run into a
high or low acid content discharge water from them. OK Let's say there is such a
things and we will deal with it. Get you a acid test kit and get me the acid
reading of the water coming out with no tablet in it for a while and get the
acid reading of 1 to 14 reading. Now 7 reading being normal water and get the
reading and get back with me and I will get the right acid or Alkly tablets to
use on it.

Now Also where is the furnace water being discharged into or what type system or
is it dumped into the yard ?

The furnaii (plural of furnace) I've installed, we run the condensate into
the drain.

I've never heard of pellets in the line. Does the owners manual say
anything?

Just for fun you can collect some condensate, and then sprinkle in some
baking soda. If it fizzes, it's acidic.

When I put in my own 90 percenter, I drained the condensate into the public
sewer drain. Works for me....
