Re: [APD] local water conditions
i thought i would pass this on as possibly useful.
When i moved to the Northeast from Houston i could not believe my water had
a Gh of <1 a Kh of <1 and a pH of 9.2.
After buying new test kits and repeating the results i contacted my local
While the first 3 people i spoke to were unable to offer any assistance
other than referring me to another person, i eventually did get the Chief Chemist
( duh! ) who graciously took the time to give me the what- water was
naturally slightly acidic, the how- by adding large amounts of Sodium Carbonate they
were able to raise the pH, and why-to stop the leaching of lead into the
water system at the old old homes with lead pipes>.
The person to speak to is the Chief Chemist as most of the other personnel
are not going to be able to help us in our particular needs.
