Water with a low pH can be disastrous for your home in several ways. It typically will be acidic, making it aggressively corrosive to your plumbing pipes and other water fixtures. Water with a low pH may also have traces of toxic metals that it has stripped from the pipes in your home. Homes suffering from acidic water may see blue-green stains on their sinks and toilets. This color comes from the fine particles of copper it leached from the metals that has oxidized after the water dried.
