Influence of PH value of water in the construction field:
- PH value of natural freshwater is 7.
- If the PH value is above 7 then the water is alkaline in nature.
- If the PH value is less than 7 then the water is acidic in nature.
cement to effectively hold numerals components within it with suitable proportion then water should have a PH around 11
Whenever the pH value decreases below than 6.5 then the concrete structure starts to deteriorate.
when the pH value of water is 3 or less than 3 then it is one of the most dangerous tasks in front of a civil engineer. Concrete will become porous in nature as the pH value decreases.
