Tap water question
May 23, 2010 11:19 AM Subscribe
This morning while cleaning the crock pot, I noticed that the baking soda I was using was foaming up, as if i had added an acid like vinegar. So, I poured some baking soda in a clean bowl, to see if it was the water. It foamed! Is there a reason my tap water would be so acid? The only thing I found on the internet was a vague suggestion the chlorine can cause acidity in the water.

I am concerned this might be causing me health problems, as I have had some persistent digestive problems, that lasted so long I had to go to the doctor, who found nothing in the fecal cultures that they ran. (Sorry if this is TMI)
I am in Albuquerque, where the water tends to run slightly alkaline, I think.
