Water Treatment : Low pH, Acidic Well Water

What is Acidic Water?

Water which contains excess acidity tends to act aggressively towards plumbing and fixtures, causing corrosion and staining (i.e.-blue green stains on fixtures from copper pipes). Relative acidity/alkalinity is measured on the pH scale, ranging from 0- 1 4, where 7 is neutral, numbers lower than 7 are progressively more acidic, and numbers higher than seven are increasingly alkaline (basic). The pH value refers not to the quantity of acidity, but rather to the relative acidity/alkalinity of a particular sample. Acidic PH levels can cause heavy metal (lead & copper) leaching, causing plumbing damage, pin holes in copper pipes and fixtures. This can lead to an expensive problem in your homes plumbing system. pH: EPA secondary drinking water standard pH acceptable range for water is 6.5-8.5
