Ph is 6.9 but I do have to buffer the water to 5 dGH.

Was thinking of using RO if my tds was high but should I even bother?
I'm using with minerals to bring RO up to 5gH. My tap is like 200TDS, 7.8pH. You might be one of the lucky ones with near pure RO water in your taps from the mountains or what not. Mordlaphus has water like that.
