pH changes by adding water to ph neutral solutions?

Good day ACS Members,

I am wondering if I adding tap water to a pH neutral soap will change the pH of the created soap solution.
(I think it partly depends on the pH of the tap water)

I am asking because I recently had Marmoleum linoleum installed in our family room.
The directions said to clean with their pH neutral product.
I am thinking of going the DIY route and using pH neutral dish soap (adding tap water). |
But may consider buying one of the recommended cleaners (see Sources below)

Any reply would be much appreciated!
I do appreciate your reading this lengthy question

Granted, this may not a reputable source, being a dotcom, and a revenue generator!
    It does state adding water to cleaners changes pH, but nothing about soap..
