Does changing the volume of a solvent, specifically water, usually change the pH of a solution?

Somehow I was thinking it didn't. Maybe I was thinking of buffers instead. Can anyone clarify?

no change in pH really only applied to buffers. Think about it this way, you have a 1L solution of HCl (non-buffer system) with pH of 5. If you add another liter of water, does the pH change?
