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

Do you mean Beckman's acidmeter?
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

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.
