My tap water results

Just curious if the plants can handle my hard water ( private well ). The parameters are:

PH 7.5-7.6

Phosphate .5 ppm

KH 214 ppm

GH 537 ppm

Nitrite/Nitrate both are 0

I own an RO/DI, but was wanting to get away from having to make water up every week.

Your thoughts?

Wow I thought my 12 dKH and 16 dGH were pretty high. I did however have the same question. Also how does it affect the fish?
