I suffer from hyper acidity. Please suggest something which I should eat to avoid acidity?

You can take one or two teaspoons of baking soda and mix it with a glass of water and drink it. Watch not to take more than a tablespoon or you will get diareah. Eating veggies helps. Even acidic fruits will turn basic when you eat them. I try to avoid drugs that try to change your body and not your pH.

What pH levels are good for you?

The way that pH levels work is that a low number is bad, equal to 7 is neutral and more than 7 is good.

My ph level is at 5.5, should i use calcite or corosex to treat the water?

use a blend of about 85% calcite with 15% corosex. this should put your ph level at around 7.5, if you use too much corosex, the ph could go over 8.5 which is the upper limit

The ph part on my test strips is brite pink why?

pH Scale
Examples of solutions on the pH Scale compared to distilled water are set out below:
  • pH = 0 => Battery Acid which is very strong Hydroflouric Acid
  • pH = 1 => Hydrochloric Acid secreted by stomach lining
  • pH = 2 => Lemon Juice, Gastric Acid, Vinegar
  • pH = 3 => Grapefruit Juice, Orange Juice, Soda
  • pH = 4 => Tomato Juice, Acid Rain
  • pH = 5 => Soft Drinking Water, Black Coffee
  • pH = 6 => *****, Saliva
  • pH = 7 => "Pure" Water
  • pH = 8 => Sea Water
  • pH = 9 => Baking Soda
  • pH = 10 => Great Salt Lake, Milk of Magnesia
  • pH = 11 => Amonia Solution
  • pH = 12 => Soapy Water
  • pH = 13 => Bleach, Oven Cleaner
  • pH = 14 => Liquid Drain Cleaner such as "Draino"

pH Scale Numbers
This scale is logarithmic. It means that each number is 10 times stronger than the preceding number. For example, a pH of 2 is ten times more acidic than a pH of 3 and one hundred times more acidic than a pH of 4. It is important to monitor pH because live depends on it. For instance, human blood is basic with a pH between 7.3 and 7.5. If the pH of blood drops below 7.3, acidosis occurs. If the blood pH rises above 7.5, alkalosis occurs. Death will occur if blood pH goes below 7.0 or above 7.8. Our human existence depends upon a balanced and buffered blood pH.

so u should seek medical attention

Smoothe surfaces underwater feel gritty... granular substance is adherring to the walls of the spa

Is this a gunnite spa/pool? Normally a rough surface indicates water that is too acid (I.E. pH is way low) The water wants to be 7.4 pH (7.2 to 7.6) ... and it will get there one way or the other. If this is the case in your pool, the water has taken the lime from the gunnite to satisfy the high acid level.

Please check your pH and other factors. Make sure your water is properly balanced to stop the lime migration ... Also check the calcium level ... should be around 300 ppm though it is ok as low as 175 and as high as 1000.

Since I moved to a new apartment, the original fish in my aquarium died. I changed the fish and they live but the plants died slowly. Why? acidity of the water?

just like any other living things, plants and animals require certain conditions to thrive. for the fish it will be adequate food, enough air supply and room temperature. for the plant, adequate light and water is critical. you mentioned the acidity of the water, to be on the safe side make sure the PH of the water is neutral or near neutral at PH 7. if you meet all these conditions, your pet and plants should be fine. thanks

Ph level is high cloudy water

Chlorine generator systems gradual increase the water's pH. You'll need to add acid to keep the pH down around 7.4. High pH can lead to cloudy water so get the pH balanced and you should be ok.
