    Lo pH water corrosion


    Has anyone knowledge or experience of a Mains Low pH water supply in Moray Scotland.

    I appear to have corrosion on my mainly hot water ( not heating ) copper pipes.
    The house has only been supplied by mains.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    "Acidic water is a problem up that way if your local water supplies/aquifers are fed by rainFall. You can use soda ash/sodium hydroxide injection. This treatment method is used if water is acidic (low pH). Soda ash (sodium carbonate) and sodium hydroxide raise the pH of water to near neutral when injected into a water system. Unlike neutralizing filters, they do not cause hardness problems in treated water."
