Tap Water Quality in Charlotte


Hey everyone,

My girlfriend lives in Indian Trail near Charlotte NC, she has literally just got into the hobby. I know that things can vary even in the same area, but does anyone have some sample water test results for the area? I hear the pH is pretty high and TDS relatively low.

Just to get a rough idea of what is in store :P

Wow that is some high pH, we managed to get her the master API test kit for now at least, her pH only came in at 7.7 so I think she is with one of the other 3 water suppliers in the area. Thanks for letting us know yours though
