At Watson Well we have a variety of chemicals for agricultural companies and cannabis growers that can be injected into the water to bring pH levels back to neutral.
A common water problem we see is high or low pH (basic or acidic). A neutral range of 7.0 to 8.5 pH is desirable for domestic drinking water, while farmers typically prefer a pH range of 6.0 to 6.7. Water pH is an important factor in the treatment of minerals, as higher pH levels assist in the precipitation of minerals and some metals.
In addition, very low pH levels can cause severe damage to copper plumbing. One indicator of this problem is a blueish or turquoise discharge on shower tiles, toilet reservoirs, and elsewhere. This ultimately results in the deterioration of pipes. Without proper treatment, copper pipes will develop pinholes, causing leaks. While trace levels of copper in water are not harmful, highly acidic water may accumulate enough copper from eroding the pipes to pose health issues if ingested.
When drinking water pH levels are excessively basic or alkaline, we have a variety of chemicals that can be injected into the water to bring pH levels back to neutral.
