pH

The term pH commonly used in water chemistry is expressed as a number from 0 - 14 and indicates whether the water is acidic or basic (or alkaline). If it were possible to have such a thing, 100% pure water would have a pH of 7, that is, neither acidic nor alkaline. A pH value of less than 7 indicates that the water is acidic. A number greater than 7 indicates the water is alkaline.
