Default How's my water profile look

I just moved to San Diego and I'm not very good with the whole reading of water profiles. I'm in the Miramar treatment area and this is what I've got so far. How does it look? Thanks in advance for the help

Calcium: 42.7 ppm
Bicarbonate: 112 ppm
Magnesium: 18 ppm
Sodium: 70.8ppm
Chloride: 83.3 ppm
Sulfate: 119 ppm
Alkalinity: 92 ppm (Total as CaCO3)

I'd probably dilute it 50% with RO or distilled water, as it's pretty high in sulfate and bicarbonate and the alkalinity is a bit high.
