pH is a scale used to measure levels of acidity or alkalinity in a liquids. Measuring pH in water levels does not measure the quantity of acid or alkali, but rather a measure of the relationship of the acid to the alkali. The pH scale ranges between 0 and 14, as reflected in this scale:
Here are some common liquids' pH measurements: orange juice is 4.0; sea water is 8.0; bleach is 12.5, and Borax is 9.0. Typically all natural waters fall within the level of 6.0 to 8.0 pH. A value of 7.0 is considered to be a neutral pH; this is usually the pH of distilled water.Water high in alkalinity can cause digestive discomfort. Acidic water can cause corrosion in pipes and fixtures; acidic water is often a problem for well owners. The pH levels of tap and drinking water will decrease as the content of CO₃ increases. Liquids below 7.0 are acidic and values above 7.0 are alkaline. The pH levels of tap and drinking water will increase as the content of bicarbonate alkalinity increases. Tap water with a pH level of 3.5 or below, generally contains mineral acids such as sulfuric or hydrochloric acid.
