The quantitative capacity of water to neutralize a base expressed in ppm or mg/L calcium carbonate equivalent. The number of hydrogen atoms that are present determines this. It is usually measured by titration with a standard solution of sodium hydroxide.

While there are several advantages of acidic water such as being a great and natural tool for body washing, due to its ability to solve skin problems. Additionally, it has a high success rate in treating contaminants that include bacteria and organic substances when washing items.

However, some of the more detrimental aspects of acidity is the corrosive nature it has on the water. Corrosivity brings issues regarding high levels of toxic ions in your water, including causing metals such as lead, iron, copper, and manganese to percolate into the water. Indications of acidity include blue stains, rust discoloring, fixtures, leakages, piping failures, and other unwanted effects. Other issues like sour or metallic taste and aesthetic complications also persist.
