pH & Hydrometer Test For TDS (Total Dissolved Solids)

Does the pH matter? pH is the measure of the hydrogen concentration in a solution - a high hydrogen content = low pH a low hydrogen content = high pH. Generally, the lower the pH the greater the quantity of minerals and the higher the pH the lesser amount of minerals.

The exception to this is when the minerals have been "meddled with" in some way e.g. a high amount of citric acid could be the cause of a lower pH when only a few minerals are present. In the same respect a high amount of hydroxides is usually the cause of a high pH with very low mineral content.

Ingesting minerals with a low pH level does not make your body acidic. Many fruit juices are also acidic but will alkalize the body. Although Vitamin C is very acidic, it will alkalize the blood, body fluids and tissues as long as you stick to recommended servings. Minerals containing Fulvic Acid are in the same category as Vitamin C... they will alkalize the system. They are also nature`s most potent anti-oxidants and electrolytes.

Specific Gravity is normally used for the testing of a liquid (like beer) using a "Hydrometer." This is a "Quick and Easy" (but not 100% accurate) test that can be used to give some idea of the quantity of ingredients or Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) in a liquid. The higher the reading, the higher the quantity of dissolved ingredients; a lower reading means fewer ingredients. e.g. Water is "0".

Combine this reading with the pH and it can give you an overall "picture" of the concentration of minerals and other ingredients in any liquid. This can be used "in lieu" of a genuine 'Laboratory Analysis' when the company does not supply one.
