Here's my two cents worth! That first test is just that pure propaganda. The ONLY
way to get an accurate sample/representation of what your water consists of is to do a catch sample from your home faucet! What ever the city says their water quality might be is because they take their sample at the treatment plant, not after its traveled through miles and miles of who's knows what type of piping.
Find a local water lab/company, take them a sample in a new sterile container and have it analyzed, I did mine and was surprised at what a difference the quality was. It cost me $25.00 and I went through a local U.S. Filter Corp. to have it done.
The quality was so different from what the water company said it should be they came out and installed a softener/RO and filtration package (Carbon/sediment/heavy metals/.05 & .01 micron) and U.V. it led to them finding 32 leaks in their main over 7 miles, and having to have it repaired to get the water back to acceptable limits!
Here are a few nation wide labs that will test water for you, one is even a do it yourself at home test.CULLIGAN - water filters, water softeners, drinking water, water treatmentWater and Wastewater Technologies and Services from Siemens Water TechnologiesSuburban Water Testing Labs: Water TestsDiscover Testing
