Does Well ph Change Over Time

Our well water was tested 15 years ago. I recently bought a water test kit and it shows a ph drop to 5. This does not seem possible as the samples that I sent to the lab 15 years ago were 6.5 and 6.6. Can well water ph change like that given no significant development in our area? It seems like the ph should be stable and the provided test strip is not accurate. I got the same result with a 2nd strip.

Hi, My name is Adam and I am a 7th grader doing a science project on water filtration. I am testing a commercial instant sip filtration type product with tap water with a homemade water filter. Can you provide any coliform bacteria kits to test drinking water safety? Or do you sell them at a good price. I am in Columbus, Ohio so my mom or dad could come pick them up at an office there at campus. Thank you very much. Please respond on my parents email below.

Safety of drinking water.

I'm planning a trip to the Big Island in Hawaii, and the vacation house I'd like to stay in uses treated rain water. Here's what they say about it:

"As for the water. We do collect our water via rain in our 10,000 gallon catchment tank. If rain is short we have water delivery. We treat the inside water through a double filtration system, then sterilize it with UV light prior to entry into the house. We have our housekeeper treat the water in the tank with chlorine and baking soda to steady the PH level."

Is this likely to be safe to drink, cook with, brush teeth with, etc.?

Water purification

I know it sounds kinda sci-fi, but could an ionising radiation 'clip' be fitted to taps in third-world countries to eliminate some of the effects of bacteria?
