  pH
The pH of distilled water is 7, this is neutral.
The pH scale was invented a long time ago and sometime it seems a little silly that the more acid it is the lower the pH is. Really it is quite easy.
So to recap if the pH is low, it means that there is a high concentration of Hydrogen ions and if the pH is high it means that there is very low concentration of Hydrogen ions or none at all.

  PH - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Though pH is generally expressed without units, it is not an arbitrary scale; the number arises from a definition based on the activity of hydrogen ions in the solution.
The pH scale is a reverse logarithmic representation of relative hydrogen proton (H+) concentration.
The formula for pH was derived from the application of the Nernst Equation to concentration cells, or galvanic cells where the half cells are at different concentrations.

pH is a term used to indicate the alkalinity or acidity of a substance as ranked on a scale from 1.0 to 14.0.
A pH meter consists of a potentiometer, which measures electric current; a glass electrode, which senses the electric potential where it meets the water sample; a reference electrode, which provides a constant electric potential; and a temperature compensating device, which adjusts the readings according to the temperature of the sample (since pH varies with temperature).
Measure the pH of the 4.01 and 7.0 buffers periodically to ensure that the meter is not drifting off calibration.

 Simply Hydroponics - pH
pH is measured on a scale of 1-14 with 7 being "neutral".
The pH scale is logarithmic, which means that each unit of change equals a ten fold change in the hydrogen/hydroxyl ion concentration.
This means that when you are adjusting the pH of your nutrient solution and you need to move it 2 points (example: 7.5 to 5.5) you would have to use 10 times more adjuster than if you were moving the pH value just 1 point (7.5 to 6.5).

 Ph scale, Ph measurement and ph parameters. Different types of Ph meter
Even natural seawater (pH = 8.0 to 8.3) isn't going to be optimal for every creature living in it, but it was recognized more than eighty years ago that moving away from the pH of natural seawater (down to 7.3, for example) is stressful to fish.
Consequently, the ranges of pH that are acceptable in one aquarium may be different in other aquaria, even for the same organisms.
If you are going to push the pH to 8.4 or higher (as often happens in an aquarium using limewater), make sure that both the calcium and alkalinity levels are suitably maintained (that is, neither too low, inhibiting biological calcification, nor too high, causing excessive abiotic precipitation on equipment).

The pH is approximately equal to the negative logarithm of the H+ ion concentration expressed in molarity.

 Water on the Web | Understanding | Water Quality | Parameters | pH
Ability of a solution to resist changes in ph when acids or bases are added; the buffering capacity of natural waters is mostly due to dissolved carbonate rocks in the basin; equivalent to acid neutralizing capacity (anc).
Although these small changes in pH are not likely to have a direct impact on aquatic life, they greatly influence the availability and solubility of all chemical forms in the lake and may aggravate nutrient problems.
Instead, pH should be reported as a median and range of values; alternatively the values could be converted to hydrogen ion concentrations, averaged, and re-converted to pH values.

 General Chemistry Online: FAQ: Acids and bases: What is pH?
pH is a logarithmic measure of hydrogen ion concentration, originally defined by Danish biochemist Søren Peter Lauritz Sørensen in 1909 [1].
A pH of 7 is considered "neutral", because the concentration of hydrogen ions is exactly equal to the concentration of hydroxide (OH) ions produced by dissociation of the water.
For example, a solution of pH 1 is said to be 10 times as acidic as a solution of pH 2, because the hydrogen ion concentration at pH 1 is ten times the hydrogen ion concentration at pH 2.
