pH and Aged Filters

I have been monitoring my pH with pH strips since I installed my Aqualiv system about a year ago. It is consistently about 8.0 where city water is about 9.5.  I have not seen a change in pH since I first installed. Will I see a Change in pH when my filters need to be changed?

  • Hi Darryl, You can't use pH strips to check the pH of water especially not structured water. I would not rely on those results. It's very unlikely to have a pH of 9.5 of municipal water, unless a chemical is causing that pH increase. 

    The new filters do replenish the magnesium in the filter, so the mineral alkalinity will go up when you change the filters. To measure it accurately, you would need a digital pH meter.

    The filters need to be changed once per year because of the purification aspect of them.
