Some of you know I've been trying my best to get all this hardness stuff
figured out, because I keep asking questions. So now, if the Mg is <expressed
as CaCO3>, it's still not clear. Do we mean the same amount by weight as if
it were calcium, so I have to look up the two atomic weights and convert, in
order to figure out the molar concentration?
