pH imbalance in your water supply will make it either more acidic or more base water. A pH of 7 indicates neutral water. The scale ranges from 0 (very acidic) to 14 (very basic). It is normal for water to have a range of between 6.5 and 8.5 on the scale. pH in water may fluctuate with differing environmental factors. pH correction will prevent corrosion of pipework, and remove blue-green stains from your plumbing fixtures with pH correction systems. Our treatment systems employ the use of a neutralising media, composed of limestone.
pH in Water
Water with pH 7 is considered to be neutral water.
If water has a very low or high pH, it can be a sign of chemical or heavy metal pollution.
Acidic water with a pH of less than 6.5 is more likely to be contaminated with pollutants, making it unsafe to drink. The acidic water is highly corrosive and can damage hot water tanks, pipes, household fittings and plumbing fixtures. More commonly, staining of sanitary ware and fittings can occur.
Water with a very high pH can have a bitter taste and an unpleasant smell.
Low-level pH in your water is likely to:
- Leach metals from pipes and fixtures, such as copper, iron, lead, manganese & zinc.
- Damage metal pipes.
- Impart a metallic or sour taste
- Turn hair to green
- Cause blue-green stains on sinks and drains.
- Metals can dissolve in water at levels potentially harmful to health
What’s safe pH for drinking water? The normal water pH values are from 6.5 to 8.5 for surface water and from 6.0 to 8.5 for ground water.
