Does anyone know the PH of distilled water bought from the store. does it all vary?

Checked with a calibrated pHep by Hanna so prob real close.
My moonshine meters come in real handy for growing

I would imagine it would all vary... Isn't distilled supposed to aim for 7 since 7 is neutral?
There are so many things that effect ph it's hard for me to say.
I bet Baby Gro would know. He gets deep into that tech stuff.
this is interesting.
from Re: pH of distilled water
Distilled water, including RO Water should always be used fresh- viz. do not
fill or use an overly large storage tank for distillate. Where premium
distilled water is required say for your silver solutions, Warthin Starry
etc, the distillate must be fresh and not contaminated with anything older
than a few hours- so empty your storage tank first or use a clean schott
bottle out of the cupboard.
Distilled water rapidly becomes acidic and even in 24hrs you can expect a pH

wally world distilled here is 6.0 to 6.5 mostly 6.5 . In fl. we hard water and treated like you would not believe.One ro filter and two carbon filter and you can drink good water. Peace
why not get a PH kit? I got one for 6.99 with some ph up and ph down solution. The guy at the store was all like hey this is priced wrong this kit should be 29.99! I was like hey you helped me get this product, it is not my fault you mispriced them! So he gave it to me for 6.99 w000t. I also picked up a soil NPK and PH tester for 15.99 I have pics hold on I will post them
