PH Tester and Tests

ph-testerI recently bought a Xpertomatic PH tester to test some of the drinks I consume. I followed the directions on the instructions to calibrate it first.

For those of you unfamiliar with PH, it’s a test of acidity. On a scale of 0 to 14, seven is considered Neutral. Zero is very acidic and 14 would be very base or alkaline. The scale changes by a factor of ten for each number. Six is ten times more acidic than seven and five would be one hundred times more acidic than seven.
