Re: Survery - distilled water pH
Distilled water will absorb carbon dioxide and other gases from the air.
The dissolved gas forms acid and this will drop the pH.
( Have you noticed the bitter taste of "soda water"?) So the pH
of distilled water will vary according to if, and for how long, it has
been exposed to air. I have just tested ours and it is pH 5.

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
