pH
pH is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of water.  It is usually measured by using a colorimetric test –  test strip changes colour with increased acidity or alkalinity. pH varies naturally within streams as a result of photosynthesis.  There are a number of reasons that water may have extreme pH values:

The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14:

A ph range of 6.5 – 8 is optimal for freshwater.
A range of 8 – 9 is optimal for estuarine and sea water.

Acidic 0 to 6.9

Neutral 7

Alkaline 7.1 to 14

    As an environmental technician that deals with wastewater remediation I use an array of probes. When switching from sample to sample the probes need frequent calibration which is time consuming and finicky in the field. I always carry test strips and these ones are accurate and easy to use. Highly recommend
