Re: Too much CO2?

Ron Barter measures water with 14 dKH and 21 dGH. Sometimes test kits
aren't accurate. It might be better to have the water tested by a
laboratory and know the actual values of calcium, magnesium and
carbonates. If you did have water with that much carbonic acid and
dissolved minerals, you may get precipitation of carbonate salts. Does a
glass of water left for a day or so have a layer of white dust in it? If
you boil the water, do you get heavy precipitation? This is one way to
remove carbonate hardness that is cheaper than RO. Boil the water!
