- Water Problems
Drinking water has a normal pH range between 6 and 8.5, meaning that it typically has a level that's just below of just above neutral. There are a number of factors that can lower the pH of water, however, increasing water acidity. Acid water can cause metal pipes to corrode and leave blue-green stains on your sinks, faucets, and other plumbing fixtures. Learn more about acid water and how to address this problem.
Acid water is water with a low pH, meaning that it's more likely to corrode metal pipes and leach metals out of exposed surfaces.
If your water has a low pH, meaning that you have high water acidity, you may see blue-green stains on your plumbing fixtures, faucets, and drains, as well as on bathtubs and sinks. Acid in water can even cause pinhole leaks in copper plumbing. Learn more about how to treat acid water.
Acid water can be naturally occurring, or caused by a high level of dissolved oxygen. Other causes include certain poor plumbing practices (often related to copper piping) and incorrect electrical grounding, as well as sand or sediment in the water and high flow rates.
Our bodies should have a blood pH value of 7.36 to 7.44.
Due to our modern lifestyles and consumption of meats, dairy, coffee & processed sugars, these create acidic ash in the body. Even the water we drink can be acidic adding to the body’s attempts to maintain its natural pH value.
Typical symptoms of acidic blood can include;
Some experts go even further to suggest that an alkaline body might not allow degenerative diseases including cancer cells to form as readily in an acidic body By combining a change in diet and drinking water with a pH value similar to the ideal blood value can lead to better health.
Understanding pH pH is a method to measure the acid/alkaline value of a given substance. The chart below shows a typical range of Ph values, with 7 being neutral.For example pH values
