What's the difference in pH and high level pH Question

    I never understood this. My pH is around 6.9 to 7 but then it says my high lv pH is at 7.5, what does this mean???

    What test kit are you using and what are the ranges for each test?

    If the result options don't overlap enough, then one of them will get as high or low as possible before reaching the limit of what the chemicals show while the other is the correct number. If you look at the result chart and the regular ph only goes up to 7 or the high ph test only goes down to 7.5 then that extreme reading is inaccurate. For example, my ph is about 8, so the regular ph test that only goes up to 7.4 will read 7.4 because it can go no higher. Therefore I use the high ph test to find my accurate result.
