Effects of Acidic Water
Acidic waters can drain heavy metals like copper, iron, and lead from its surrounding environments. Due to its highly corrosive nature, acidic water will corrode plumbing over time causing pinhole leaks and pipe failure. These same corrosive characteristics will cause serious damage to your home’s appliances like dishwashers, washer, and hot water heaters, ultimately resulting in costly repairs before the end of the appliance’s normal life cycle.
In addition, acidic water causes blue-green staining in your sinks, showers and bathtubs, and can else stain your laundry. Acidic water may also have a metallic, sour taste.
How Do You Neutralize Acidic Water?
