Acid Water (Low pH)
Acid water cannot be detected by the water’s appearance, feel or odor. Its symptoms, however are very apparent. Acid water is corrosive and can eat away chrome fixtures, copper pipe, fittings and metal parts of water using appliances. The corroded texture of fixtures, the blue green stains on sinks and tubs are all signs of damage from acid water. Acid water causes pinhole leaks in copper pipes and when the pipe is behind a wall or ceiling, the water damage effects can be catastrophic. Another serious problem that can be caused by Acid Water is that LEAD can be leached into your water from faucets, valves, fittings, and old solder joints.
