By how much does the MINA Alkaline Pitcher increase the pH of water?

Graeme Updated by Graeme

The MINA Alkaline Pitcher increases the pH of water by about 1.5 - 2.0 units on the pH scale. Results may vary depending on the source water.

How did we do?

What are the black particles in my pitcher and how do I get rid of them?

How do I recycle the MINA filter?
