That's a pretty high pH especially considering the magnesium and calcium
are very low (soft water). I would suspect that what's giving you the
problems is either the high pH or the cation that accompanies the
anion. It might be worthwhile to see if you get a mineral analysis of you
water. The county health agency does it here for free if you have a well.
