Watch your pH level!
pH can be quite stable or fluctuate, depending on the carbonate level in the water. It is quite possible for the pH to suddenly drop due to a build-up of natural acids in the water. This decreases carbonates, allowing the pH to suddenly crash. The only way to know the pH is to test it..
