RE: Survey - distilled water pH

From:Gary Gill

Whatever the responses, take them with a grain of salt.  Measuring the pH of
water of any kind is not straightforward with a pH electrode.  However,
there is pH paper intended for use with water.  The pH of distilled  water
ranges from about 5.5, or so, to about 7 (maybe).  Its pH is "fragile" in
that anything added will immediately change the pH.  BTW, pH means hydrogen
power and is derived from the French word "hydrogène."

Hi all, I was wondering what the pH of the distilled water in your lab is.
Seems there is some variability, but would like to see what the range is.
