Measuring water with Test Strips vs pH Reagent
Alkalinity and pH are not the same things, but they are linked and can easily be confused.
Test strips measure closer to the Alkalinity, the amount of minerals in the water, the actual mineral concentration of the water. Normally the higher the Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) the more minerals in the water, so the higher the Alkalinity (measured in pH).
Liquid pH reagent (unbuffered solution) measures the potential of hydrogen concentration (ions) in the water (pH). This is known as the pH concentration in the water.
e.g. Alkaline Water can have a High Alkalinity, but if it’s carbonated it also has a low pH.
Ideally, water should have a high level of mineral (TDS) and a high pH (say a pH around 9)…
