It was water straight out of the tap. However, normally it is has a much higher PH. I tested the tap a few weeks ago and it was at the upper end of the scale. I registered at the highest PH level on the chart - 7.6, I think.

Maybe, that's why I am having issues lately - the PH out of the tap is doing something funky.

I'll do anothe rtest right now and see if anything changed

EDIT. My bad. The 1st round of tests were 6.4 - they both matched the first light green color on the chart.

That's really acidic for tap water. How odd.

I retested the tap water and the cup with amquel plus. Both came out to be the same exact color but I'm having a hard time trying to read the exact PH value. The colors on the chart are so similar in color till the 7.0 range. It looks to be a 6.4-6.6

weird. Wonder why it was so high a few weeks ago

Don't know. I'd be making calls to figure out what the city is doing with your tap water
