Low pH, Acidic Water

  • A pH level below 7 is acidic.
  • Acidic water can leach metals out of the plumbing system, causing plumbing, staining and taste problems.
  • Dissolved copper will be left behind in showers and sinks, leading to a blue-green stain after the water evaporates, and weakening the plumbing system over time.
  • Lead and copper can dissolve into the water leaving a metallic taste to the water.
