Water Causing Blue Green Staining

Low ph drinking water solutions- blue green water staining- Luminous Water Solutions

Have you noticed blue-green staining in your shower, tub, faucets, toilets, fixtures, appliances, etc.? In most cases, blue-green staining from water is a result of household water that has a low pH. The lower the pH level in the water, the more acidity which can cause corrosion. Household water coming from private wells tend to have a low pH level. When acidic water enters a home, it eats away at your fixtures and appliance. The blue color staining that’s left behind is the leftover remnants of the fixtures, plumbing, and appliance being eaten away. On a water scale of 0 to 14, perfectly balanced water should be right in the middle with a pH level of 7. Typically any home with water under 6.8 will start to see blue-green staining.
