mistergreen nyc also puts in a phosphate based chemical to help with the pipe corrosion. I don't think plants can use it though.. The molecule is pretty big but I'm not sure about that.

run your tap through a brita to for drinking & for the fish.

nyc's tap water always tasted funny to me.

Gatekeeper Should be on your water bill. If not, you can start here.

dr.tran Thanks glenn. Do u know where I can find a directory on my local water supply? I'm not sure how to find them.

Gatekeeper You can also contact your water supplier as well. They can tell you your levels most of the time if they have a tested source close by. If anything, you should receive an annual report displaying all of your water parameters.

Test ur phosphate NYC!

I just got my phosphate tesed yesterday and straight from the tap, 2 ppm phosphate! By my tank water is over 10 ppm!! So test your water and I think we don't have to do phosphate for a while.
