Our water is VERY hard.
Talkin' to the wrong people. If you get the right people, they tend to be very helpful. I called in and they gave me what I asked for. A more charming member of my homebrew club called and ended up talking the guy into coming to a meeting to give a presentation.

I may have to give this a shot. I have a well so there is nobody that I can just get a report from. At least this will be a start.

I got that same email. Bummer. Wish they'd have mentioned that on their site prior to me giving them their email address and posting that information here!

Yeah, it lists like 10 major cities/counties at the bottom of the page and you can only get the 3m test if you live there. I don't live in a huge city or anything, but I was able to find a water quality report on the website of my local water district. I guess most cities nowadays would have something like that on their sites.

I signed up for a kit and it looks as though they are going to send the kit and I dont live in any of the cities listed.....maybe just luck of the draw.

Many water treatment salesmen will do a free water sample. We had one done when we first built our house, after the well was in.

I just found it last year (after realizing I needed to adjust my almost mineral free water). However, it didn't have what I needed. Total alkalinity, pH, and were some the main things, as the vendor sells stuff to correct those. But all the other stuff one needs to know to balance wasn't listed. So I sent away to the place listed on HBT alot. Cheap, fast, and all the right tests. It was simple after that to adjust my water using the TH spreadsheet.
