pH 4.3 Condensate Water
I recently purchased a new dehumidifier for my basement. The water collects
in a plastic jug at the bottom of the unit. About 2 gallons worth in 24
hrs. when set to 45 % RH.
I poured a gallon of it into a clean, clear plastic jar and let it sit for
24 hrs. A few bubbles gathered on the sides of the jar and I banged the jar
to release the bubbles [with my luck it was probably radon].
I then measured the pH with an new, calibrated Hanna Combo meter. Anyone
want to hazard a guess as to why the collected water would have a pH of 4.3?
Should I recalibrate the meter?
Being condensate off the cooling coils it is probably close to RO water. I
did take a uS and ppm measurement and they came out very low, but don't
remember right now.
I plan on experimenting with this water to see if it is safe for the
Thanks for any ideas.
