I remember testing water that been through a Brita filter (filter in a
pitcher model). My tap water has a pH > 7.6, ~1 dGH, and ~12-14 dKH
(after going through an ion exchange water softener). The pH went
down to something like 6.2. I don't remember the exact number but I
remember it was a "large" change.
As for a source of RO water, our local supermarkets have drinking
water dispensers for 1 and 5 gallon containers. The information on
the machine claims the water goes through a 20 micron filter, a carbon
filter, and a reverse osmosis unit. The water goes for 25 cents/gal.
I tested it and got pH ~6.2, 2-3 dKH, 2-3 dGH.
