San Diego Water

Can anybody tell me the water parameters of San Diego? Iv'e asked the LFS of San Diego and they all say its extremly hard.

THe reason I ask is because I am using R/O water and am having a problem with the KH of my tank (a little low about 2.5). Im also very low on nitrates.

I am guessing the solution would be to cut the R/O water with some tap? Then treat with prime.

A quick little but of googling turned up:

Not a whole lot of info there (except that total hardness is 12 grains - whatever that converts to), buut it does give some phone numbers to call.
