Do you ever recall testing liquids and their pH with litmus paper? If you do, you recall them changing all different colors depending on what the liquid is. While the experiment might have seemed boring at the time, understanding pH levels is extremely important for your health but also know what your body is consuming.
As Wikipedia defines it, In chemistry, pH (/piː eɪtʃ/ or /piː heɪtʃ/) is a measure of the acidity or basicity of an aqueous solution. Solutions with a pH less than 7 are said to be acidic and solutions with a pH greater than 7 are basic or alkaline. Pure water has a pH very close to 7.
So now that we know what pH levels mean, here are a couple of items and where they land on the pH scale:
Orange Juice: 3.5
Soapy Water: 10
Apple Juice: 3
So what does pH mean when it comes to water? The pH level of water determines whether it is hard or sof. As we have talked about before, Hard water has a high mineral content. While it is not generally harmful for ones health, hard water can cause breakdowns with equipment that handles the water. Soft water on the other hand, contains few or no extra elements. Water tested with a pH level less than 6.5 is considered acidic. Water tested with a pH higher than 8.5 is considered basic and is often hard.
The importance of understanding pH water levels is to determine that your water is not damaging the internal parts of your home such as pipies, appliances and anything that works and has water flowing through it.
This is why it is always good to get your water tested! Don't find out the hard way when your appliances and pipes have suffered from damaging pH levels in your water.
