water treatment and pH correction with acid
« on: May 18, 2010, 01:21:54 AM »
we are correcting elevated pH water from a construction related project site.  We are using diluted sulfuric acid at 36% and injecting it into a pvc pipe of flowing water.  Do I need to be concerned about the exothermic heat produced using the diluted concentration? And other considerations do I need to think about?  Thank you

Depends on the amount of acid used and flow of the water - but you can easily check if the tube gets warm, just touch it.

Why is the water alkalic? And how alkalic it is?
