pH Correction System
pH is the degree of acidity or alkalinity of the water. It is measured on a scale of 0-14 pH units, with low numbers being acidic, 7 being neutral and higher values being alkaline. The regulatory standard for pH in drinking water is within a range between 6.5 and 8.5.
The pH is dependent on natural geological conditions at the site and the type of minerals found in the local rock. It varies depending on weather patterns, human activity, and natural processes.
Whether it’s low pH or high pH, having unbalanced pH levels can cause household headaches and shoot up your expenses. Acidic water is highly corrosive and eats plumbing throughout the home, as well as water using appliances, causing leaks in pipes. Acidic water has the tendency to leach metals from plumbing systems causing toxic metals to enter the water supply. Where properties contain old lead pipes, health aspect becomes even more relevant.
Not to mention, acidic water leaves blue-green stains on your plumbing fixtures, faucets, and drains, as well as on bathtubs and sinks. Time and again we receive some cases of blonde hair turning into green, that’s all a cause of unbalanced pH levels.
