That would be considered decently acidic water. I'm afraid that may not be a very good source of water for most succulents. They will prefer a soil pH of 6.5 to 7.5, with around 6.8-7.0 being best.

You may think about bringing the pH of your water up a bit, or since you keep the water acidic, you may have to stop adding what you are adding to do so.
