What method to determine pH?  I'd only imagine for ion balancing purposes.

Do you mean Beckman's acidmeter?

It just an ordinary pH meter with gel electrode. When we measure pH of water, we need to add a drop of saturated KCl solution to water.

to increase the conductivity of water. water has a rather high dielectric constant.
