Tara. As you have read from the follow-ups all properly operated steam boilers contain and discharge water with a pH of 10.5 - 11.5 . Dischage with a pH in this range is typically not allowed by local municipalities. Most of the time boiler water discharge is mixed with other discharge from the same location lowering the pH to acceptable levels. Where this is not the case, a neutralization system can be installed at the discharge site. They are fairly easy to monitor and control. The cost can be any where from $3,000.00 up depending on volume per time.
