Are these tap water parameters going to work?


My tap water is reading 8.2pH, KH of 7dH, and a GH of 16dH. Can I use this tap water with out lower the before mentioned parameters??? Or would I be better off using RO/DI and adding something like equalibrium to remineralize it?

Aside from a high pH, your tap water looks Ok to me.

How long did you let the water sit before testing the pH? If you let the water sit overnight and then test it you may find your pH is a little lower.
