Default What pH of Water is best?

I've been having my water tested to figure out why it doesn't hold awesome carbonation. The scientist are telling me that I should check to see what the ideal PH is as there are not a significant amount of natural minerals or TDS (Totally Dissolved Solids). I am looking to make soda with this water.

SO what PH is Best?

The ideal levels of solids and PH for water will typically vary depending on the type of beer you're after... I don't really have the expertise to give a good answer, but you could try checking this link to see if it provides any insight (not my blog, for what it's worth):
