Does low pH effect PEX Plumbing?

Acidic Water on pipes

Low pH does not corrode PEX plumbing like it does copper piping. Although a house plumbed in PEX or PVC is a great benefit when your well water is acidic, don’t forget about the other components in your home. You still need to protect:


  • Heating elements in your hot water heater, dishwasher, and boiler
  • Fixtures like your sink, shower, bathtub, and kitchen
  • Outside water spigots and sprinkler systems
  • Toilet tubing and float mechanism

So remember that acidic water can cause problems that can lead to costly repairs and damage. The best strategy is to treat your low pH water with a Neutralizer.
