I would like to lower the pH of the water I use for my indoor herb plants (basil, thyme, oregano), and I've gotten suggestions to use products such as PH Down. But I wonder if it's possible to install a water filter on my tap that can lower the pH. Does anyone know anything about doing this? Brita Filters, reverse osmosis, etc? Thanks for any thoughts.

They make the water filtered- not always good- tho water tastes sweeter, would have to be ready to change a LOT of filters. Doesn't fertilizer also change the water/soil ph?
