pH water levels are not always the first thing that come to mind when it comes to water. Have you heard of the “pH scale”? Presuming you have, pH in the context of water is usually to describe the drinkability of the water and how certain water substances are different in pH level.
What is pH?
pH is an indication and measurement of the acidity or alkalinity of a substance, in this case, water. The scale used to measure pH is from 1-14. 1 indicates the most acidotic while 13 is alkalinity. 7 is the neutral point.
Below is a table of various instances of pH levels in water when used in different applications.
|Water||Common pH Levels|
|Water from the Tap||Slightly above neutral 7.5|
|Bottle of Coke||2.5|
|Water found in Bleach||Around 13|
There may be specific applications where water is more likely to require testing. Below we take the example of testing water in your pond.

pH of Bottled Water
The pH of bottled water is roughly between 6.5 to 7.5 for your typical brands. It is at a similar level to tap water. However certain brands may be more acidic or contain more alkaline meaning the pH level could be slightly outside this range.
