Acid Water Stains, Low pH Water In Bossier City & Shreveport
Acid Water is easily identifiable by the blue-green stains on plumbing fixtures. It eats away at faucets, fittings, and pipes, as well as corrodes water-using appliances. Many of the wells in this area are considered to be shallow which in turn makes your water more accessible to surface run off. Often times water from a shallow well will produce water with a low pH or acidic water. This water will be more aggressive then water with a "balanced pH". Soft metals such as copper pipes are at risk with low pH water.
The "blue green" stain is from oxidized copper from your own plumbing. It is very important to balance the ph of your water to keep you from having costly plumbing repairs. It is recommended that your pH be 7 or higher to prevent these types of issues. There are a number of methods for elevating your pH so use the form above to consult your Bossier City Culligan Man to determine what will work for you.
