pH levels are an important aspect of water quality. Keeping pH levels in check is crucial, as acidic water can corrode plumbing, appliances, and fixtures, while high alkaline water can cause scaling. Additionally, water that is too alkaline or too acidic is detrimental to human health. We are experts at water testing and will provide you with an accurate reading of your water's pH level. Once we've tested your water, we will work with you to correct your water quality if necessary.
What is pH and Why is it Important?
pH, also known as potential of hydrogen, measures the acidity or basicity of a solution on a scale of 0 to 14. The EPA regulates that all drinking water be kept somewhere in the range of 6.5 to 8.5, while Michigan drinking water is usually somewhere between 7.2 and 7.7.
There are a variety of health risks associated with water that is either too acidic or too alkaline. Since acidic water is corrosive, it often contains high levels of metals such as iron or lead, which are harmful to human health. Furthermore, high alkalinity in water will make it harder for the body to effectively metabolize nutrients. Lastly, iron filtration systems won't work if the pH level is outside a certain range.
