    Acids are Low in PH and Alkline (bases) are high.

    Ideally water is 7.0 PH.

    ACV is a very weak acid.

    Quote:So how much further does ACV lower the PH of the water? The last time I had my water tested the PH was 6.3 This was taken at the pump before the water softener and iron filter. Will the lower PH hurt my chickens?
