I more or less did these checks myself, before and after installing the CN structuring device. It was fun to see the "objective" difference in my own tap water once it was structured. Otherwise, just take samples of any old tap water or bottled water and compare it with water that's structured.
Here's what you do:
#1: Structured water is pH balanced. So get some litmus paper, which comes with a colour chart, and check out the acidity of your water samples.
- Tap water and bottled water may be acidic, so it's possible they're in the 6pH range.
- Structured water will be 7pH at normal temperature (around 77F), as is natural water (rainfall, waterfall water, fast-flowing streams).
- If you have a water structuring device combined with some kind of filter as well, then you'll lose a little of the pH balance.
In my case, the tap water gave a reading of 6.4pH before installation of the CN device; once filtered it was 6.8-7pH; and after installation of the CN device, the reading of the tap water running straight through the CN structured device (unfiltered, in other words) is: 7pH. Ta-da!
#2: Structured water is "soft" ~ like rainwater, it has less surface tension than non-structured water. So take a piece of cardboard and put a drop of your samples, one by one, on the cardboard. Put a drop of alcohol, too. If they are soft, the drops will lose their shape and will sink in; if they are hard (high surface tension), they will retain their shape and sit there for longer than the "soft" samples.
This experiment isn't conclusive, but structured water not only has that "soft" taste, it also acts "soft," doesn't retain its shape and is therefore easily absorbed. As a point of comparison, look at the figures on surface tension of tap water, bottled water, alcohol and structured water:
- City water & much bottled water: 72-78 dynes per cubic centimeter (pcc)
- Alcohol: 28 dynes pcc
- Structured water: 43 dynes pcc
#3: Structured water doesn't leave streaky marks on your dishes, your windows or your car; non-structured water does. So take a look at your car after you've cleaned it with structured water, or your windows or your kitchen plates ~ are they shiny clean or are they blotched?
Kids might enjoy doing these experiments! They'll learn a lot about water in the process, too.
Goodnight! Time for bed.
