Knowing the pH of the water you are drinking is critical to knowing whether you are drinking something that is alkaline or something that is acidic.
The pH spectrum measures how acidic or alkaline something is. The scale runs from 0-14, with a pH of 7.0 being neutral. The higher the pH (greater than 7) the more alkaline. The lower the pH (less than 7) the more acidic. For good health, our bodies need to be slightly alkaline and our wellbeing is directly related to how alkaline our diet is.
Whilst the pH scale runs from 0-14, every point on the scale relates to a 10-fold change in acidity or alkalinity from the previous value. For example, the difference between 7 and 8 on the scale is a 10-fold change in alkalinity. A substance with a pH of 8 is, for example, 10 times more alkaline than tap water.
