Here is a link to the latest "report" on my drinking water.

http://www.dovertownship.org/Downloa...s/CCR_2008.pdf

Is there anything in here that I should be concerned with? I've been using spring water @ $1.00 a gallon and that extra couple of bucks is something I'd like to trim.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can read this... and knows what they are looking at!

Steve

There isn't a lot of useful information. I suggest sending a sample into Ward Labs for the data on the ions you need, which are:

Bicarbonate
Sodium
Calcium
Sulfate
Chloride
Magnesium
and Water Hardness/Alkalinity

Then, you can check out this for a bit of research:
