Do You Need A pH Test Kit In Your Home?
Acidity and alkaline levels in water are measured in pH
(Positive Hydrogen) units and total alkalinity is ppm (parts per million).
A pH scale of 0-14 indicates whether water is acid or alkaline. A pH of 7
is neutral and ideal. An acid level of 6.8 or lower will cause corrosion
of both copper (blue-green staining) and galvanized plumbing, which can
lead to serious damage to plumbing line and equipment, especially water

High alkaline levels (above 1880 ppm or pH
10) may cause dry skin conditions, and/or objectionable taste. Test for either
acidic or alkaline water treatment options.
While the pH of water is not often discussed or certainly
not mentioned in the nightly weather section of the news, pH is an
important measurement of water and an important factor in our day to day
lives. The impact occurs in nature and in commercial uses of water. The
U.S. Geological Survey thinks enough about it that they take a pH
measurement whenever water is studied. Not only does the pH of a stream
affect organisms living in the water, a changing pH in a stream can be an
indicator of increasing pollution or some other environmental factor. That
is in nature. Water pH is just as important in non-natural usages of
water. It should be a part of every testing procedure for commercially
used water as wells.
