PH changes in well water

Asked December 14, 2018, 11:27 AM EST

We live in a rural area with farmland and woods nearby with a fairly sandy soil on top of a rock barren. The surrounding landscape and population has not significantly changed. The raw PH of our well water has fluctuated over the past 20 years from 5.5 to 8.3. Most test results have been 5.5 with the higher Ph values in summer months. What might cause large increases in PH during the summer?
