Does your water have a metallic taste or do you notice bluish-green stains inside your toilet tank or on your fixtures?
If your water has a low pH (less than 7) it is may be considered acidic. Common causes for acidic water are acid rainfall due to atmospheric carbon dioxide and other airborne pollutants, runoff from mining spoils, and decomposition of plant materials.
Acidity in water can have an adverse effect on the taste and quality of your water, as well as household pipes and fixtures. Acidic water can cause fixtures to have blue staining (from copper pipes) or rust staining (from iron pipes). The main problem is the damage it can do to copper or iron plumbing. The water slowly eats away at the plumbing and water heater tank, eventually leaving holes.
