Orp and Ph Meter Readings
Dear TED: upon your recommendation, I purchased a PH meter, ORP meter and a refractometer. I have been playing with the PH and ORP meters as of now. Here are some reading which I calculated: TAP WATER - 9.2 (PH) ; 273 (ORP) FILTERED WATER - 7.0 (PH) ; 375 (ORP) 1/2 tsp Sod. Ascorbate+ glass of water - 7.2 (PH) ; -140 (ORP) 1/4 tsp Mag. Citrate + glass of water - 4.0 (PH) ; 500 (ORP) My urine was 6.8 (PH) and -80 (ORP) -- I did not wait too long. Sodium Ascorbate had a remarkably negative ORP, which was impressive! But I was confused abt Magnesium Citrate. I found it to be ACIDIC and have a very high ORP. Can you explain this? How come tap water is so alkaline. Does this mean, tap water is better than my filtered water. This is a BRITA filter ( activated charcoal filter). One more question.? Is there any way I can test the presence/concentration of FLUORIDE in water. thanks. You are awesome....
