    aerating water = pH?

    I'm confused....
    does aerating raise or lower the pH?
    I was sure I had read that it lowered it, and now that I'm doing searches, it looks like it raises it.
    thanks,

    Aerating raises the pH.

    What Mike said, it raises PH and doesn't change anything else like other methods will.
