You know your stomach acid is acidic, right?
just eat some antacids follow up with some regular tap water.

How alkaline do you want it to be?
Do you want to be able to drink it after?? Pass the water through Chalk

Put baking powder in it.

Alternatively come round here our water is naturally alkaline as we are on a lime stone base.


Go for distilled water which should be Ph neutral so you don't need to combat any existing acidity.

Slaked Lime
Ammonia
Caustic soda are all alkaline BUT you DON'T want to DRINK the end results.

Thank you for your reply, yes we want it for drinking. As a gout sufferer I found that using alkaline water raises the ph level and combats the gout. I dont want to spend mega on a purchased system.

Where did you get the idea that alkaline water combats gout?
I'll bet it wasn't from your GP.

You didn't say how much you wanted to raise it.
