Rain Water pH

According to Wikipedia the pH in rain water can vary depending on your location. Since it has been pouring rain here recently (around the DC area) I decided to make the best of it by capturing some falling rain drops in a cup and then testing it using the Tetra 6-in-1 EasyStrips.

My Results...

Nitrate = 0 Safe
Nitrite = 0 Safe
Hardness/GH = 0 Very Soft
Chlorine = 0 Safe
Alkalinity/KH = 0 Low
pH = 6.2 Acidic
