What is pH?


pH is a measure of the hydrogen ion activity in a solution. Pure water that contains an equal balance of positive hydrogen ions (H +) and negative hydroxide ions (OH -) has a neutral pH.

Solutions with a higher concentration of hydrogen ions (H +) than pure water are acidic and have a pH of less than 7.

Solutions with a higher concentration of hydroxide ions (OH -) than water is basic (alkaline) and have a pH greater than 7.

Why Monitor the pH of Water?

pH measurement is a key step in many water testing and purification processes:

A change in the pH level of water can alter the behavior of chemicals in the water.pH affects product quality and consumer safety. Changes in pH can alter flavor, color, shelf-life, product stability and acidity.Inadequate pH of tap water can cause corrosion in the distribution system and can allow harmful heavy metals to leach out.Managing industrial water pH environments helps prevent corrosion and damage to equipment. In natural environments, pH can affect plants and animals.
